An increasing number of injectable filler materials for facial wrinkles and folds points to the need for objective measurements of their effectiveness. [...] Key Method A wrinkle assessment scale was developed as a simple tool for use by plastic surgeons, dermatologists, and aesthetic surgeons who want to assess the changes resulting from injecting filler materials in their patients.Expand
The Wrinkle Severity Rating Scale
TLDR
The WSRS is a valid and reliable instrument for quantitative assessment of facial skin folds, with good inter- and intra-observer consistency, and should prove a useful clinical tool for assessing the effectiveness of soft-tissue augmentation and other facial contouring procedures. Expand
Validation of a Photonumeric Wrinkle Assessment Scale for Assessing Nasolabial Fold Wrinkles
TLDR
This study validates the new wrinkle assessment scale, which provides a reliable clinical tool for use in nasolabial fold wrinkle evaluation and is considered valid if interevaluator reliability was greater than or equal to 80 percent. Expand
Classification of facial wrinkles among Chinese women
TLDR
A newly developed 10-point photographic and descriptive scale emerged, using skin surface measurements from the Visioscan® VC98 to identify the scale by objective quantitative measurement, indicating that the scale increased inversely. Expand
The Modified Fitzpatrick Wrinkle Scale: A Clinical Validated Measurement Tool for Nasolabial Wrinkle Severity Assessment
TLDR
The Modified Fitzpatrick Wrinkle Scale (MFWS) is a reliable method for quantitative assessment of nasolabial skin folds, with good inter- and intraassessor reliability. Expand
Confirmed efficacy of topical nifedipine in the treatment of facial wrinkles
TLDR
The colorimetric evaluation showed that use of the tested product resulted in significant overall lightening of the skin during use compared with baseline, while the moisturizer didn't produce any change of skin lightening parameters. Expand
Collagen induction therapy for the treatment of upper lip wrinkles
TLDR
CIT is confirmed as an effective and safe technique to improve upper lip wrinkles after only two sessions, and the wrinkles' severity grade in most patients was greatly reduced. Expand
Classification of periorbital wrinkles and treatment with Botulinum Toxin Type A Artigo
Introdução: Periorbital wrinkles are an important component of facial aging that can be minimized with botulinum toxin treatment. Objective: To treat periorbital wrinkles through botulinum toxinExpand
Preauricular Aging: A Three-Point Grading System to Guide Treatment in Facial Rejuvenation
TLDR
An excellent inter-rater correlation between plastic surgeons and dermatologists at assessing the degree of aging in the preauricular area is demonstrated, which aims to provide an objective direction to the appropriate treatment method. Expand
Analysis and Classification of the Upper Lip Aesthetic Unit
TLDR
The labral classification system and its associated analytical tools serve as useful references in consultation, simplify discussion of patients with upper lip defects, furnish a practical alternative to complex algorithms, enable documentation of changes, and facilitate analysis of large sample sizes. Expand
Nasolabial Wrinkle Classification
Categorization of facial wrinkles is used in dermatology studies to determine the efficacy of a certain treatment over a certain period of time. These studies, however, are limited by the fact thatExpand

TLDR
In 1981, after extensive pre-marketing trials, injectable bovine collagen was introduced by Collagen Corporation (Palo Alto, CA) and has, since its introduction, become the "gold standard" against which other newly introduced injectables are appraised. Expand

The intent is to organize the discussion of therapies for photodamaged skin to permit rational comparisons of therapies and clinical results. Expand
Optical profilometry: an objective method for quantification of facial wrinkles.
TLDR
Computerized digital image processing of facial fine lines and wrinkles can be faithfully captured by silicone rubber impression materials provides objective measurement of the skin's topography, which has a significant degree of correlation with clinical grading. Expand
The anatomy and pathogenesis of wrinkles
TLDR
The anatomy of linear wrinkles, fine criss‐cross wrinkles of the face and wrinkling of the general body surface of elderly persons, was studied and it was concluded that the wrinkle is a configurational change, like the grooves worn into an old glove, without specific structural alterations at the histological level.

The First Clinical Study Using a New Biodegradable Implant for the Treatment of Lips, Wrinkles, and Folds
TLDR
A new tissue augmentation product, made from hyaluronic acid, was clinically evaluated at three clinics in accordance with the new directive, EN 540, for medical implants, and showed that close to 60% of the effect was still there at 12 months follow-up. Expand
Pulsed carbon dioxide laser resurfacing of photo-aged facial skin.
TLDR
Resurfacing of photoaged skin by means of a high-energy, microsecond-domain pulsed CO2 laser with a specific clinical treatment protocol results in predictable improvement in perioral and periorbital wrinkling and photodamage with minimal risks. Expand
Laser Skin Resurfacing with the Silk Touch Flashscanner for Facial Rhytides
TLDR
The Silktouch flashscanner is effective for the treatment of facial rhytides in skin resurfacing and optical micrometry revealed a decrease in rhytid volume, indicating rhytide improvement. Expand
Pulsed Carbon Dioxide Laser Resurfacing of Photoaged Facial Skin
TLDR
Resurfacing of photoaged skin by means of a high-energy, microsecond-domain pulsed CO 2 laser with a specific clinical treatment protocol results in predictable improvement in perioral and periorbital wrinkling and photodamage with minimal risks. Expand
Early results of vermilion lip augmentation using acellular allogeneic dermis: an adjunct in facial rejuvenation.
TLDR
The early results by using acellular allogeneic dermal grafts for lip augmentation are encouraging and further studies are under way to better objectively define long-term results. Expand
