We quantitated the skin elastic fibers of the papillary and reticular dermis using specific staining procedure followed by automated computerized image analysis. Fifty skin biopsies of patients consulting for cardiovascular risk factors were studied. The following parameters were estimated: surface area (% of total surface), length, and number of fibers as a function of age. The evaluation of the skin elastic fiber system showed no significant trend with age in the number of elastic fibers per… CONTINUE READING
