Background: Since Langer's first foray into studying cutaneous lines, although people have studied skin lines across the body, there has not been a study that elucidates changes to skin structure of elastin and collagen at different load levels. This study set out to look at whether incisional lines and excisional lines have different biodynamics and have to be considered differently.
