How to objectivate Shape & Volume ?

Since the beginning of the cosmetics, face remodelling and slimming claims remain on the top of the list.
They attract the use of new 3D science applications particularly for the data acquisition and treatment.

The Shape & Volume efficacy of creams, serums, masks, medical devices or institute treatments is generally evaluated in the centimetres level and on the global cutaneous structure.

On this topic, skin cares reduce under eye bags, droopy eyelids, optimise the oval contour, remodel, re-pulp or uplift the face. The body care activities are mainly focusing on the orange peel, thigh sizes, stretch marks, breast volume or stomach contour.

How this parameter of body and face can be now objectivated? In addition to other methods such as consumer testing, clinician scorages and sensory analysis, Skinobs platform lists more than 12 methods and devices that meet the objectivation of Shape & Volume changes:


See you at the IFSCC Congress in München!
