Simulation of Skin Aging and Wrinkles with Cosmetics Insight

Boissieux, L. and Kiss, G. and Magnenat-Thalmann, N. and Kalra, P.


Abstract: This paper briefly reviews the existing approaches employed in computer animation for skin modeling, wrinkle formation and aging process and proposes our approach. Two models have been proposed, one is image-based for rapid prototyping and instant results and another is model based an extension to our earlier work. In the model-based technique skin is considered as a volumetric substance, as opposed to an elastic membrane, having layers of different materials and a finite element method is used for computing the deformation. The ultimate aim is to devise a practical system, which can enable modeling of skin of an individual person using empirically acquired biomechanical parameters such as Young Modulus. Further, the system is capable to simulate the visual effect of external treatment on the skin, e.g., use of the cosmetics, and exposure to the sun. An application software to this effect has been developed in collaboration with L’Oreal, a renowned cosmetic producer.
