This handbook covers the essential subject areas of cutaneous biometrics, including acne, aging, genetics, eczema, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, rosacea, wound healing, and more. Erythema of rosacea and the risk of skin ulceration associated with oral nicorandil therapy are covered in detail. Various areas of acne are addressed, including acne severity grading, the assessment of general health and quality of life in patients with acne, and the effect of automated online counseling on clinical outcomes and quality of life among adolescents with acne vulgaris. Other topics include the development and validation of a clinical scale for the evaluation of forearm skin photoaging and a scoring system for mucosal disease severity. This is an ideal reference for biomedical engineering researchers and clinicians working in the field of dermatology interested in a deeper understanding of cutaneous biometrics and how it can be applied to their work.
