Editor’s note: The following article is adapted from the Textbook on Aging Skin, a Springer compilation edited by HI Maibach, MA Farage and KW Miller, which currently is in press. Farzam Garouhi, MD, is a volunteer research scholar with Maibach at the University of California School of Medicine, San Francisco; he is also an author featured in the textbook.

In the year 2000, individuals over the age of 65 represented 13% of the US population, and this number is expected to increase to 20% by 2030. This increase in the number of older individuals over younger individuals will transform the shape of age distribution from what currently is graphed as a pyramid into a rectangle.1 This demographic shift calls for increased efforts to prevent the aging process and to develop safe and effective drugs for the elderly.
