Can You Really See Buried Skin Damage?

GHK Copper Peptides Book by Dr Loren Pickart

Damaged skin can sometimes seem to hold everything in place. As this is slowly rejuvenated, the skin may briefly appear to transform. Is this a good thing? And is so-called "buried skin damage" a real biological phenomenon

Dr. Austin Richards (of Oculus Photonics LLP) is a consultant in the field of infrared and ultraviolet imaging. He has 9 years of industrial experience developing invisible-light imaging systems and applications. He developed the UVCorder™ out of the necessity for a digital imaging solution in the near-ultraviolet band.

He is also the author of the book Alien Vision: Exploring the Electromagnetic Spectrum with Imaging Technology, and is the author of numerous articles and papers on the subject of invisible-light imaging.

How to Improve the Appearance of Your Skin

As abrasion methods and hard peels remove the upper layers and may cause deeply buried scar tissue to become more visible.

It is this buried skin damage that is often covered over with normal skin. As such deep damage becomes visible, is is important to focus on the use of hydroxy acids (to break down and remove damaged tissue) and follow up with copper peptides (to help reveal a brighter, blemished-reduced appearance).

However, this method takes time and patience. But in time is a very effective way to result in younger-looking, healthier skin.

The key to improving the appearance of the skin (even though this transition period of buried skin damage being pushed to the fore) is the use of a good method of exfoliation (with hydroxy acid and/or manual abrasion) + copper peptides to help initiate strong skin repair.

Keep in mind that consistency and patience are vital.

How does UVCorder™ Work?

The UVCorder™ consists of a standard Sony Camcorder equipped with the Sony Intelligent Accessory Shoe, upon which is mounted a special ultraviolet camera module, or UVM. The shoe provides electrical power to the UVM, which plugs into the shoe much like an accessory light or flash unit. The UVM contains a silicon CCD camera with enhanced ultraviolet response in the 300-400nm range, and a peak response at 370nm.

UVCorder™ is a hand-held digital ultraviolet imaging solution. The UVCorder makes it possible to view scenes in the near-ultraviolet band and acquire digital video and stills quickly and easily. It replaces awkward film-based camera systems in applications as diverse as forensics, art conservation and biological research.

A special filter rejects both visible and infrared light from reaching the sensor. This means that the UVCorder™ can be used in situations where the ultraviolet illumination is lower than the visible or infrared illumination. For example, on a clear, sunny day, the UV images formed by the camera are 99% ultraviolet in their spectral content. A standard black light can be used in indoor situations, since by design most interior lighting emits little UV light.
