Abstract

Cutometer is a commercially available non-invasive suction skin elasticity meter. The present study discusses some aspects of the biological informativeness and interpretation of the results obtained in studying skin mechanical properties with cutometer. We analyze the results of previously published studies on the mechanical properties of healthy and diseased skins and their changes after external influences. Studying human skin using cutometer gives objective and biologically meaningful information about the mechanical properties of healthy and diseased human skin.
