Among the Best Images contest submitted images, the organizing committee selected Dr. Lia Mara Grosso Neves’s submission.
Dr. Neves also will present a short oral entitled “Polysaccharide‐rich hydrogel formulation combined with photobiomodulation repairs UV‐induced photodamage in mice skin” during the Skin Challenges 2020 Virtual Congress.
Summary of talk: The development of new therapies for the treatment of photoaging has gained importance in the last decades. In this scenario, natural products represent interesting tools for the prevention and treatment of skin aging. The therapy called photobiomodulation (PBM) refers to the use of photons, in a non-thermal irradiance, to alter the biological activity of cells and tissues. Non-ablative lasers have been increasingly used in the aesthetic treatment of fine wrinkles and skin photoaging. Will be demonstrated the biomodulatory effects of a polysaccharide-rich hydrogel formulation extracted from Lycium barbarum fruits combined with PBM repairing the UVR-induced photodamage on the skin of hairless mice.
