Photodamage refers to the changes in the skin that occur after prolonged exposure to UV irradiation. Photoaging refers to alterations in the skin that resemble the effects of age caused by sun exposure. Aging is a constant and inevitable process, wherein intrinsic aging and photoaging are two independent clinically and biologically distinct processes that simultaneously affect the skin. Intrinsic aging is composed of slow, irreversible tissue degeneration while photoaging (extrinsic aging) is a result of exposure to outdoor agents, mainly UV irradiation The effects of UV radiation (UVR) on skin are profound and are estimated to account for up to 90% of visible skin aging. It has been studied and demonstrated that UV irradiation inhibits the synthesis of collagen and induces collagen degradation
