“Elastic fiber network: three-dimensional visualization of the human skin by two-photon microscopy” Elastic fibers are the second major component of dermal connective tissue. It has been suggested that they provide resilience and elasticity to the skin, and their morphological changes are closely associated with skin aging such as sagging and wrinkling. However, current studies conducted using conventional histological methods do not allow us to visualize the three-dimensional network of elastic fibers in the skin. The visualization elastic fiber network in three-dimension is important to better understand the mechanism in aging and in disease. Here, I will introduce a new method to visualize elastic fiber network in human skin three-dimensionally using two-photon microscopy.
