Abstract

In recent years, skin aging caused by ultraviolet light exposure (i.e. photoaging) has garnered attention in the fields of beauty and health care because photoaging accelerates skin aging. However, few practical techniques exist for the quantitative evaluation of such aging. Photoacoustic imaging, a novel modality, can portray differences of tissue characteristics. To verify the feasibility of quantitative evaluation of skin aging with photoacoustic technique, the effects of skin aging progress on photoacoustic signal intensity were investigated.
