The skin aging products occupy a major segment of skin care products. Skin aging aims at evaluating various parameters that tiggers the changes in the morphology of the skin. The anti-wrinkles claim of a test product can be substantiated by robust clinical evaluation methods and using various instrumental techniques.
Evaluation of the Anti-Wrinkle Efficacy of Products by:
- Clinical Evaluation by dermatologist with the help of Photographic Scales (Roland BAZIN Atlas).
- Digital Photographic Technique followed by Image Analysis to determine different wrinkle parameters.
- Fringe Projection and 3D Photographic Technique to obtain 3D images of wrinkles using PRIMOS CR® or ANTERA 3D® followed by Image Analysis
- 2D Profilometry: Skin imprints and analysis with Quantirides® software
- Self-Assessment and Dermatological Assessment with the help of the Evalux Bench
- Use of Ultrasonography to obtain trans-sectional image of wrinkled skin surface and monitoring of the wrinkle evolution across time
Evaluation of Elasticity, Firmness and Lifting of Facial Skin by:
- Instrumental Technique: Cutometer®, Dermal Torque meter® and Elastimeter® to measure skin elasticity or Corneometer® to measure moisture level
- Use of Spectrophotometry Intracutaneous Analysis to determine the concentration and distribution of dermal collagen.
- Use of the Ultrasonography to obtain trans-sectional images of the skin and determination of the thickness and structure of the collagen Layer.
Evaluation of the Anti-Sagging effect of Product by:
- Clinical Evaluation with the help of Photographic scales (Roland BAZIN ATLAS).
- Digital Photographic Technique: Using the Sagging Index (determined by change in position from supine to upright position)
Evaluation of the effect of product on Under Eyes Bags and Hollow Cheeks by:
- Clinical Evaluation with the help of Photographic Scales (Roland BAZIN Atlas)
- Fringe Projection and 3D Photographic Technique to obtain 3D images followed by Image Analysis
- Digital Photographic Technique followed by Image Analysis
