Would we continue to age under suspended animation?

One theory I can think of is that aging is regulated by the biological clock, which in of itself is intrinsically connected to the metabolic, and since Roth's method for suspended animation involves slowing down the metabolism, it would effectively halt the aging process.

However, I must question the life span of the cells on the outside of the body, such as the skin and hair. Such things are already decayed by the time they are visible to the naked eye, and with no system in place to rejuvenate them with the body in hibernation, the side effects could be horrifying

Does anyone else have any theories as to what may happen?
