Autonomic nervous system (ANS) plays a role in the intrinsic skin ageing and it could be minimal compared to external factors induced, especially sun exposure. Most of the cutaneous vascular functions controlled by ANS such as the local blood flow and the loss of fluid through sweat. A recent hypothesis about a possible relationship between wrinkles and ANS activity and reversible wrinkling of the skin in response to water immersion is a marker of the limb sympathetic function. Factors that increase sympathetic activity such as stress, smoking and amphetamine may induce skin wrinkling. Heart rate variability (HRV) is the indirect measures of global ANS activity like high frequency [HF], low frequency [LF], LF/HF ratio. Facial xerosis was related to a decreased HF component that means impairment of parasympathetic autonomic activity. It might be associated with a decrease sweat production and stimulate vasodilatation which in turn leads to skin xerosis. Application of local and systemic administration of drugs and medical devices which electrically modulate autonomic nervous system activity and prognosis of skin ageing.
