The advancement of diet and lifestyle as epigenetic factors involved in skin aging opens up avenues for non-invasive treatment protocols for our patients who are living longer, healthier lives, but wish to look as young as they feel. Epigenetics speaks to the very underpinnings of the “Beauty from Within” trend, and holds the potential to define the influences of our environment not only on our skin, but on our entire aging process as well. This is the future of not only skin care but also of medicine! We now know that our epigenome is able to modulate gene expression and play important roles in stem cell differentiation, hair growth and rates of graying, wound healing, inflammation, hyper- and hypopigmentation, DNA repair, aging, cell longevity, and skin diseases such as eczema, psoriasis, and vitiligo. Dr. Fine synthesizes the current research on skin aging, gene-environment interaction and environmental medicine to demonstrate that diet and lifestyle factors can slow down and even reverse the aging process.

Learning objectives:
• To foster awareness of extrinsic and intrinsic forces that lead to aging of the skin
• Participants will be able to recommend certain lifestyle changes that reduce expression of genes involved in aging such as NF-kappaB and increase certain favorable genes such as the ARE-containing genes that boost Nrf-2 activity
• Participants will be able to integrate skin nutrition and lifestyle therapies into their treatment plans
• Participants will be able to position themselves as experts in the emerging field of epigenetics
