Visible light (400-700nm), which contributes to 45% of solar radiation, contributes to skin darkening and worsening of dyschromias, particularly in individuals with Fitzpatrick skin phototypes III and higher. Currently, sunscreens provide limited protection against that spectrum. Due to their capabilities in absorbing, scattering, and reflecting visible light, topical products containing pigments and/or metal oxides can provide additional photoprotection. In this study, the efficacy of two…

Iron oxides in novel skin care formulations attenuate blue light for enhanced protection against skin damage
This work has shown that sunscreens containing titanium dioxide and zinc oxide protect against UVA and UVB radiation but provide limited protection against HEV light.
Photoprotection against visible light: Implications for clinical practice
There is enough evidence at present to highlight the harmful effects of VL and its implication upon several photodermatoses including chronic actinic dermatitis, cutaneous porphyrias and solar urticaria, in addition to hyperpigmentary disorders.
Perioperative Skin Conditioning for Patients With Skin of Color
The interest in cosmetic procedures for patients with skin of color is on an upward trend. Globally, dyschromia and hyperpigmentation remain the most common disorders for which patients seek
Lichtalterung (Photoaging) der Haut: Was gibt es Neues?
Die Alterung der Haut resultiert aus dem Zusammenspiel genetischer und nichtgenetischer, sog. exposomaler Faktoren. Einer der wichtigsten exposomalen Faktoren ist die chronische, lebenslange
