      Kao research opens door for better understanding of wrinkle formation

      Kao Corporation has announced a breakthrough in our understanding of how structural changes in the skin affect wrinkle formation. Its Biological Science Research Laboratory and Skin Care Products Research Laboratory – in collaboration with the Computational Optics Group at the University of Tsukuba – used a technique called Jones matrix-optical coherence tomography (JM-OCT) to unravel the mystery surrounding how changes at various depths result in skin wrinkling. JM-OTC is an evolution of standard OTC (a method of observing the inside of the skin without damaging it), which uses algorithms to divide up the skin into small sections by depth. A study, involving ...
