[video] Oxygenated Tissues for Soft, Elastic Skin


Youthful skin demonstrates higher levels of oxygen in its subcutaneous environment than aged skin, according to work by researchers from POLA Chemical Industries, Inc., and Shizuoka University in Japan.

As Yoshihiro Hamanaka, of POLA Chemical Industries, explains in this video interview of a poster he presented at the 2019 IFSCC Conference in Milano, this higher oxygen content maintains constant fibrosis levels and viscoelasticity in skin. On the other hand, aged skin shows increased levels of fibrosis and a non-uniform structure with decreased viscoelasticity.
