Vertical cutaneous extensibility was studied before and after 1, 2, 5 and 10 min hydration by application of tap water. After hydration, we noted an increase in all rheological parameters linked to elasticity whereas viscosity and hysteresis parameters were unmodified. These modifications took place from the first minute and increased thereafter. Men and… CONTINUE READING
