ZURICH, Switzerland, July 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Solianis' new patents cover the basic technology to monitor changes in the hydration of skin at different depths and to evaluate the impact of cosmetic products: "Device and method for determining at least one characterizing parameter of multilayer body tissue" and "Method and device for characterizing the effect of a skin treatment agent on skin."
