Abstract BACKGROUND Skin aging is accompanied by wrinkle formation. At some sites, as the periorbital skin, this is a relatively early phenomenon. OBJECTIVE We evaluated the anti-wrinkle effect of a preparation containing human growth factor and hyaluronic acid serum on periorbital wrinkles (crow's feet). MATERIALS AND METHODS In all, 23 Korean women (age range: 39-59 years), who were not pregnant, nursing, or undergoing any concurrent therapy were enrolled in this study. All the patients completed an 8-week trial of twice daily application of human growth factor and hyaluronic acid serum on the entire face. Efficacy was based on a global photodamage score, photographs, and image analysis using replicas and visiometer analysis every 4 weeks. The standard wrinkle and roughness parameters used in assessing skin by visiometer were calculated and statistically analyzed. RESULTS Periorbital wrinkles were significantly improved after treatment, with improvements noted both by physician assessment and visiometer analysis. CONCLUSION Topical application of human growth factor and hyaluronic acid was beneficial in reducing periorbital wrinkles.
