[What are the epidemiological data on the consequences of smoking-related increased risk in pregnant women? Dermatological consequences].

Abstract

Smoking has numerous effects on skin. Some of them are well established, others are more debatable. Smoking is a cofactor of skin aging after chronic sun exposure, as demonstrated by recent histological, biochemical and cutaneous relief studies. Smoking is a well established risk factor of cutaneous, mucous membrane cancers, and some gynecologic cancers as well, in some cases increased by pregnancy. However, published studies have included small numbers of subjects. Some skin affections are worsened by smoking, and others might be improved. However scientific data on smoking and skin or pregnancy are both scarce.
