Skin aging automated assessment
Participant: Hugues Talbot (Collaboration: Julie Robic, Alex Nkengne, Clarins laboratories, Benjamin Perret, Michel Couprie, ESIEE Paris)
With aging, human skin becomes drier, thinner and more irregular, but these characteristics are highly person-dependent, and can be brought about via exposure to heat, cold or Sun. It is important to the cosmetics industry to assess objectively the effect of their products on skin aging. With our partner Clarins laboratory, we have proposed a series of automated procedures based on graph-based image analysis. We have in particular proposed to detect the surface that correspond to the dermal-epidermal junction , and a series or procedures to link the appearance of this surfact to aging characteristics . Both have been validated by dermatologists specialized in skin aging.
