Shiseido research findings set to advance skin care via Cosmetic Design
28 September 2017
Japanese personal care heavyweight, Shiseido, succeeds in developing and applying two newlyadvanced technologies: In Vivo visualisation of dermal capillaries and the involvement of vascular plexus malformation in hyperpigmentation. Through its latest two discoveries, Shiseido contributes towards a fuller understanding of skin care, damage and protection to answer cosmetics users’ concerns over the safety and highperformance of industry products.
1. Research findings: In Vivo visualisation of dermal capillaries
Shiseido has visualised microvasculature in dermis regions. Invisible to the naked eye, the Japanese brand revealed that it has created a safe and damagefree application using contemporary imaging technology via light waves. This newly developed visualising technology has enabled the personal care giant to identify the malformation of vascular plexuses in the upper reticular dermis in UVinduced hyperpigmentation (solar lentigo). While typical research methods can analyse the blood flow of the skin, they are not able to visualise capillary vessel structure. Shiseido states that its highresolution imaging technology enables a clear visualisation of the depthresolved vascular plexuses image. …/…
