The effects of Photodermatoses by Photodermatology.
Photodermatology is the study of the effects of light, specifically ultraviolet (UV) radiation, on the skin. It encompasses the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of skin conditions related to exposure to UV radiation, which is present in sunlight and artificial sources such as tanning beds. Photodermatology is an important field because it helps to protect individuals from the harmful effects of UV radiation and provides effective treatment options for those who have experienced skin damage. The skin is the largest organ in the human body and is responsible for protecting the body from external factors, including UV radiation. However, prolonged exposure to UV radiation can cause damage to the skin, leading to a variety of skin conditions.Author(s): Passeron Dreno*
