We have previously reported the formation of wrinkles, a decrease in skin elasticity and a loss in the linearity of dermal elastic fibers in rat hind limb skin irradiated with ultraviolet radiation in wavelength ranging 290-320 nm (UVB) at a suberythemal dose for 6 weeks. Estrogens are considered effective in preventing photoaging in postmenopausal females, but the role of estrogen in the skin remains unclear. In this study we have evaluated the influence of short-term chronic UVB irradiation… CONTINUE READING
