Dermatoheliosis - Symptoms & Treatment


Dermatoheliosis (DHe) results from excessive and/or prolonged exposure of the skin to ultraviolet radiation (UVR). It is characterized by solar elastosis with wrinkles, cutis rhomboidalis nuchae, Favre-Racouchot's syndrome and mottled skin pigmentation, cutaneous atrophy and telangiectasias. It is the generic term for chronic sun damage, which can include telangiectasias, but these will be confined to directly sun-exposed skin and will not produce lesions. To survive the insults of actinic damage, the skin appears to have different intrinsic defensive mechanisms, among which antioxidants (enzymatic and non-enzymatic systems) play a pivotal role.

Causes of Dermatofibroma

The common causes and risk factor's of Dermatofibroma include the following:

  • Excessive and prolonged exposure of the skin to ultraviolet radiation (UVR).

Symptoms of Dermatofibroma

Some sign and symptoms related to Dermatofibroma are as follows:
  • Dark age spots on the face and decollete.
  • A gradual thickening of the skin.
  • Fine lines.
  • Deep wrinkles around the eyes.

Treatment of Dermatofibroma

Here is list of the methods for treating Dermatofibroma:

  • Tretinoin in lotions, gels, and creams in varying concentrations has been demonstrated in controlled studies to effect a reversal (clinical and histologic) of some aspects of DHe, especially the connective tissue and vascular changes.
  • 5-Fluorouracil in lotions and creams is highly effective in causing a disappearance of solar keratoses.
