Textbook of Aging Skin


Welcome to the homepage of Textbook of Aging Skin, a comprehensive reference work from Springer.

It compiles all current and latest information on aging skin. Highly structured with a reader-friendly format, it covers a wide range of areas such as basic sciences, the different diseases and conditions which occur with aging (from malignant to non-malignant), the latest techniques and methods being used such as bioengineering methods and biometrics as well as toxicological and safety considerations for the elderly population. Information and more details about the extent of this project can be found under Aims & Scope.

We welcome you and look forward to your participation in this exciting project.
