Paper Abstract

An opto-thermal study of in-vivo skin response to hydration and externally applied chemicals has revealed a high sensitivity to the solvent Dimethyl Sulfoxide (DMSO). Dependence on dose, individual and post-treatment recovery after washing were investigated. The measurements indicate that skin hydrates much more rapidly after treatment with DMSO, than normal skin.
