Continued advances in photobiology have led us to discover new protagonists in sun damage, such as infrared and visible radiation. Furthermore, they have enabled us to increase our knowledge of the physiological process triggered when solar radiation comes into contact with the skin leading to various cutaneous alterations.
This has led several authors to consider the possibility of a synergy in the effects on skin caused by the different radiations of the solar spectrum in the skin. Putting forward the theory that they do not function as “independent parts” but as “one”. And that even certain effects caused by specific radiation are boosted by the action of another.
This opens the door to a new era in photoprotection, a new concept in photoprotection with a 360 effect.
