Shiseido claims 3D facial skin measurement world first

Shiseido says it has developed the world’s first measurement system for 3D shape and subsurface scattering light in facial skin.

In collaboration with the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, the J-beauty firm has developed an innovative measurement system that it says achieves a comprehensive, non-invasive approach to analyzing the 3D facial shape and optical properties of facial skin.

The ability to measure and analyse these properties, such as subsurface scattering light, has been difficult until now, says Shiseido.

The study measured the facial skin of women ranging from their 20s to 70s.

“With this system, we measured the facial skin of more than 1000 people, analysing subsurface scattering light, which is an important factor for skin translucency, and as a result, it was revealed that the subsurface scattering light decreases with age and is associated with five factors, including melanin level and the condition of the stratum corneum,” the company said in a statement.

“While the skin appearance, which strongly influences our impression of the skin, tends to be judged subjectively, we will further pursue research to elucidate the visual quality of the skin objectively and quantitatively through cutting-edge science to help realize the ideal skin for each individual,” it added.
