Inflammation can be identified as a contributing factor to many diseases, but what does it have to do with skin health and aging? This session will define and explain the various steps in inflammation and relate this process to intrinsic aging. Cellular and molecular mechanisms will be addressed including NF Kappa b, glycation, UV radiation, generators of oxidative stress and free radical formation. The process will be explained step-by-step so that the importance of inflammation in skin care can be fully appreciated.
