Abstract

The results indicate that both methods are useful in the study of the mechanical aspects of the skin, especially for detecting age-related changes. The Dermaflex seems to produce more accurate for data. This is thought to be due to the conceptual design differences between the two methods. The methods measure related but not identical values of the mechanical properties of the skin, as reflected by the limited positive correlation between them.
