Good Skin Quality?


Recommended Posts

  • Root Admin


According to a paper on 'good skin quality,'  "there are no standardized criteria for good skin quality." The authors of the paper then attempted "To establish a consensus for good skin quality parameters and measurement and treatment options, a virtual skin quality advisory board consisting of a global panel of highly experienced aesthetic dermatologists/aesthetic physicians was convened." 

The results were "strong consensus that good skin quality is defined as healthy, youthful in appearance (appearing younger than a person’s chronological age), undamaged skin and that skin quality can be described across all ethnicities by four emergent perceptual categories (EPCs): skin tone evenness, skin surface evenness, skin firmness, and skin glow."
