Going skin deep to explore what causes wrinkles
Three dimensional of skin wrinkled
In this recent contribution, a research group from the University of Southampton and the University of Cape Town, South Africa, working with colleagues at Stanford University in the United States, applied a biomechanical perspective to understand what causes wrinkles. The result is representations showing the complexity of the skin. The team has developed a number of quantitative computer models to create three-dimensional characterizations of skin wrinkles, which could help scientists, academics and industry, better understand the conditions that cause certain types of micro-wrinkles.
This is an opportunity to recall the remarkable work of the Doctor Jean Claude GUIMBERTEAU who one upon the time had explored in a very original way the cutaneous tissue to give images that already allowed to make a very dynamic skin representation. If this new work can go further, important advances had already been proposed that we can reasonably believing that just a few people remember.
