Clinical Results and Before and After Photographs

In a manufacturer backed study, four treatments were performed on the cheeks, neck, hands and décolletage of 59 patients (37-60 years) at the baseline treatment visit (T0), and after 3 (TW3), 6 (TW6) and 9 weeks (TW9). The following aesthetic results were assessed at 6, 9 and 12 weeks.

• Statistically significant improvement of skin colour homogeneity after 3 treatments - 16% increase in skin brightness.

• The positive difference between superficial and deep hydration measured at TW12 suggests that Viscoderm Skinko E improves deep hydration.

• A clinically and statistically significant decrease (36.6%) in the erythema visual score vs untreated skin and placebo, demonstrates the photoprotective (protection from UV rays) efficacy of Viscoderm Skinko E

• During the study a lightening effect on hyperpigmentation was reported.

• Statistically significant reduction in skin roughness, by 19.7% after only 2 treatments.
