Skin ageing: Genetic and environmental factors

The project is a continuation of a PhD project with the same title, and has as main objective to investigate the degree of genetic and environmental influence on the visual aging of facial skin and appearance. This is examined through clinical photographs, lifestyle questionnaires and outer skin measurements in twins. The project involved 100 female twins aged 60 to 80 years.

Funded by: Unilever.
