facial glow

William H Truswell
The periorbita, cheeks, and midface are an area of complex facial form and function. There is a particular pleasing visual harmony of these regions in the youthful face. With time, the robust glow and fullness of youth fades and diminishes. The skin is the first component to show the passage of time as it dulls, wrinkles, and blemishes. This is followed by a slow loosening and sagging of soft tissues as they descend from their once-fixed points of the skeletal foundation. The smooth transitions between regions are separated and hollows and ridges appear...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: The age-dependent changes of facial skin imperfections such as spot or wrinkles have been investigated repeatedly by means of various objective measurements. However, the age-dependent changes in the optical-reflection characteristics that create a perception of a shine or a glow of the skin have received little attention. We evaluated the age dependence of the optical-reflection characteristics of the surface and subsurface facial skin layers of three age groups. METHODOLOGY: The facial skin of 83 Japanese females ranging in age from 20 to 49 years was examined using a high-resolution digital camera equipped with a linear polarizing filter under polarized illumination...

People often prefer familiar stimuli, presumably because familiarity signals safety. This preference can occur with merely repeated old stimuli, but it is most robust with new but highly familiar prototypes of a known category (beauty-in-averageness effect). However, is familiarity always warm? Tuning accounts of mood hold that positive mood signals a safe environment, whereas negative mood signals an unsafe environment. Thus, the value of familiarity should depend on mood. We show that compared with a sad mood, a happy mood eliminates the preference for familiar stimuli, as shown in measures of self-reported liking and physiological measures of affect (electromyographic indicator of spontaneous smiling)...

Once-daily application of tretinoin to photodamaged facial skin for 0-12 months results in substantial clinical and histologic improvement. As regards appearance, fine wrinkles become effaced, dyspigmentations fade, surface becomes smooth and develops a 'rosy glow'. Histologically, atrophy and dysplasia of the epidermis are completely corrected. New collagen is laid down subepidermally along with the development of new small vessels (angiogenesis). Mesenchymal dermal cells become more numerous and larger. The sum of changes is toward more youthful skin...

A cluster of toxic reactions among children inadvertently given excessive doses of rifampin for chemoprophylaxis of invasive Haemophilus influenzae disease in a day-care center was investigated. In all 19 children, who received five times the therapeutic dose of rifampin, dramatic adverse reactions developed. A striking, "glowing" red discoloration of the skin and facial or periorbital edema were found to be the hallmarks of rifampin toxicity. These clinical signs of acute toxicity contrast sharply with the adverse side effects of rifampin reported with therapeutic doses...

A 45-year-old Japanese man, who had had bilateral visual disturbance due to Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada (VKH) disease 17 years before entry, was admitted to this hospital because of headache, vertigo and vomiting. On examination at entry, no abnormalities except for poliosis, patches of vitiligo on his left shin, sunset glow fundus, and positional nystagmus with Frenzel glasses were found. Laboratory data other than leukocytosis and elevated level of gamma-GTP were normal and the results of brain CT scan were within normal limits...
