21 February 2018 The use of optical coherence tomography to analyze the efficacy of skin care products
Author Affiliations +
In this study, we assess the applicability of optical coherence tomography (OCT) for non-invasive imaging of skin morphology for the assessment of efficacy of cosmetic skin wrinkle-reduction products in humans. Evaluation of skin care products for reduction of facial wrinkles is largely limited to photographic (non-quantitative) comparison of skin surface texture before and after either single or prolonged application of skin care product. OCT could be a technique for monitoring changes in cross-sectional skin morphology. An optical attenuation coefficient analysis is also carried out to quantitatively study the changes in different layers of the skin.
