Defending Against the Elements: Advances in Antioxidant Science for Skin Aging

This symposium presentation will explore the latest scientific insights into the role of antioxidants in combating skin aging caused by atmospheric pollution. The session will highlight recent discoveries about the impact of metals on the skin and the potential benefits of chelation therapy for protecting against metal-induced damage. Attendees will gain a deeper understanding of the underlying mechanisms of atmospheric aging and learn about the latest advances in antioxidant science that are paving the way for more effective skincare treatments. This session is ideal for dermatologists, skincare professionals, and anyone interested in the latest developments in anti-aging therapies.
