Novel digital image analysis using fractal dimension for assessment of skin radiance.

Skin Res Technol 2019 Feb 16. Epub 2019 Feb 16.

Product Performance Evaluation, L'Oreal USA, Clark, New Jersey.

Background: Despite a strong desire to quantify skin radiance in the field of cosmetics, there does not exist a robust method to characterize it. Classical shine that quantifies the specular reflection from skin has been commonly used as the metric to characterize radiance. However, it does not always correlate with the perceived radiance as there are many other parameters that inform radiance perception including spatial distribution of shine and color homogeneity.

Gradient-based 3D skin roughness rendering from an in-vivo skin image for dynamic haptic palpation.

Skin Res Technol 2019 Jan 3. Epub 2019 Jan 3.

Department of Information & Telecommunication Engineering, Incheon National University, Incheon, Korea.

Background/purpose: Many studies have revealed the importance of palpation for dermatologists; however, palpation is not always possible due to the risk of secondary infections or the risk of damaging the affected area. Thus, haptic rendering for indirect palpation using in-vivo skin images, which will enable to examine a real three-dimensional (3D) skin sample by virtual touch without directly palpating the infected skin area, could be a useful technology in dermatology.

Methods: We propose a new method of accurate 3D skin surface reconstruction using simple gradients from a single skin image for accurate 3D roughness rendering with a haptic device. Read More

Reproducibility of the durometer and myoton devices for skin stiffness measurement in healthy subjects.

Skin Res Technol 2018 Nov 10. Epub 2018 Nov 10.

Department of Veterans Affairs, Tennessee Valley Healthcare System, Nashville, Tennessee.

Background: Clinical assessment of skin stiffness is unreliable in many applications. The durometer, an industrial device to measure hardness, has previously been applied in scleroderma. The Myoton is a noninvasive handheld device for assessing soft tissue biomechanical parameters. Read More

Effect of spraying of fine water particles on facial skin moisture and viscoelasticity in adult women.

Skin Res Technol 2018 Nov 6. Epub 2018 Nov 6.

Department of Physiology School of Medicine, Aichi Medical University, Nagakute, Aichi, Japan.

Background/purpose: It is known that the elderly and adult women with reduction in sebum secretion have reduced skin barrier function, drying of the skin in a low humidity environment is accompanied by physiological distress. As our hypothesis, when fine water particles are sprayed on the skin, the water content of the corneal layer is significantly increased. In the present study, we examined the ability of fine water particles to improve facial skin moisture levels in adult women. Read More

Raman characterization of human skin aging.

Skin Res Technol 2018 Nov 7. Epub 2018 Nov 7.

Centre de Recherche sur la Peau, Pierre Fabre Dermo-Cosmétique, Toulouse, France.

Background: Skin aging is a complex biological process mixing intrinsic and extrinsic factors, such as sun exposure. At the molecular level, skin aging affects in particular the extracellular matrix proteins.

Materials And Methods: Using Raman imaging, which is a nondestructive approach appropriate for studying biological samples, we analyzed how aging modifies the matrix proteins of the papillary and reticular dermis. Read More

Measuring epidermal effects of ostomy skin barriers.

Skin Res Technol 2018 Nov 2. Epub 2018 Nov 2.

Hollister Incorporated, Libertyville, Illinois.

Background: Ostomy barriers are adhesive devices designed to hold pouching systems to the abdomen and protect the peristomal skin from stoma effluent. The objective of this study was to determine differences in the extent of skin trauma resulting from serially applying and removing two types of ostomy barriers.

Methods: The study was a randomized, prospective, repeated measure trial involving healthy volunteers. Read More

Histochemical study of the distribution of epidermal melanoblasts and melanocytes in Asian human skin.

Skin Res Technol 2018 Nov 2. Epub 2018 Nov 2.

Shinjuku Skin Clinic, Tokyo, Japan.

Introduction: The classical study revealed the melanocyte density in the epidermis of many skin sites of humans. However, these data were obtained by counting melanocytes using dihydroxyphenylalanine (dopa)-treated epidermal sheets. Since rete ridges are developed well in human epidermis, there is a concern about the accuracy of these data. Read More

Comparison of ceramide retention in the stratum corneum between dry skin and normal skin using animal model with fluorescent imaging method.

Skin Res Technol 2018 Oct 27. Epub 2018 Oct 27.

Advanced Health Care Science Research Unit, Innovative Integrated Bio-Research Core, Institute for Frontier Science Initiative, Kanazawa University, Kanazawa, Ishikawa, Japan.

Background/purpose: Skin care via moisturization compensates for the lack of skin barrier function. However, moisturizer application methods are not clearly decided. Here, we focused on and examined the retention of externally applied ceramide in the stratum corneum (SC) using fluorescent imaging method. Read More

How transparent film applied on dermatologic imaging devices in order to prevent infections affects image quality?

Skin Res Technol 2018 Oct 27. Epub 2018 Oct 27.

Department of Medical, Surgical and Neurological Science, Dermatology Section, S. Maria alle Scotte Hospital, University of Siena, Siena, Italy.

Background: In the clinical practice, transparent films are used as sterile interfaces in in vivo dermatologic imaging in order to prevent the transmissions of infections. However, in our experience, the use of a transparent film can alter skin images. Our study aimed to compare the optical quality of a series of different plastic films used as interfaces in order to understand if some might be more suitable for imaging. Read More

Age-related changes in lip morphological and physiological characteristics in Korean women.

Skin Res Technol 2018 Oct 25. Epub 2018 Oct 25.

Skincare Division, Amorepacific R&D Center, Yongin, Korea.

Objective: Age-related changes in lip morphological and physiological characteristics are key indices for estimating age based on facial features, as reported in many studies. Yet, a majority of studies have focused on Caucasian individuals, with few studies characterizing these changes in Asian female populations. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate lip morphological and physiological characteristics in a cohort of Korean women. Read More

Dynamic thermal imaging on actinic keratosis patients: A preliminary study.

Skin Res Technol 2018 Oct 25. Epub 2018 Oct 25.

Department of Dermatology, College of Medicine, Korea University, Seoul, Korea.

Background: Diagnosis of actinic keratosis (AK) based only on clinical findings can be misleading, and histopathological diagnosis results in scars. Dynamic thermal imaging is a potential non-invasive tool for the diagnosis of AK. This imaging technique quantifies the infrared (IR) radiation emitted by a subject after exposure to external thermal stimuli, such as heat or cold. Read More
