Changes in surface configuration of the skin caused by ageing and application of cosmetics: three-dimensional analysis according to a new system based on image analysis and Fourier transformation.

Synopsis The surface configuration of the skin, as characterized by surface furrows and plateaux, is known to change with ageing and skin condition. There have been many attempts to analyse the surface configuration in order to evaluate the effect of skin care products. However, the systems proposed up to now are insufficient to obtain three-dimensional… CONTINUE READING
