Knowledge about the human skin mechanical properties is essential in several domains, particularly for dermatology, cosmetic or to detect some cutaneous pathology. This study proposes a new method to determine the human skin mechanical properties in vivo using the indentation test. Usually, the skin mechanical parameters obtained with this method are influenced by the mechanical properties of the subcutaneous layers, like muscles. In this study, different mechanical models were used to evaluate… CONTINUE READING
