Well-aging: Early Detection of Skin Aging Signs

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


The aim of the current review is to provide an overview of the use of reflectance confocal microscopy to detect early skin aging signs. This new imaging tool holds the promise to morphologically explore the epidermis and upper dermis at nearly histologic resolution and over time. The main confocal findings of aged skin include the presence of irregular honeycombed pattern, linear skin furrows, mottled pigmentation, and distinct collagen types (coarse and huddled).
