Skin Aging, Free Radicals and Antioxidants $215.00
Authors: Borut Poljsak (University of Ljubljana, Slovenia) 
Book Description:
This book describes mechanisms of skin damage generation and examines the potential impact of free radicals, reactive oxygen species (ROS) and oxidative damage on the skin aging process. It also evaluates methods to decrease skin oxidative stress, oxidative damage, and skin aging. The identification of free radical reactions as promoters of the skin aging process implies that interventions aimed at limiting or inhibiting free radical reactions should be able to reduce the rate of formation of aging-related changes with a consequent reduction of the aging rate. This book highlights how aging of the skin happens, as well as what are the causes and the best ways to prevent and treat it. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical)
