[0019]
BEST MODE FOR CARRYING OUT THE INVENTION
A preferred embodiment (hereinafter, referred to as an embodiment) of a skin fluorescence measurement method and apparatus according to the present invention will be described below with reference to the drawings.
[0020]
A skin fluorescence measurement device (hereinafter, simply referred to as a measurement device) according to the present embodiment will be described with reference to FIG.
[0021]
The measurement device 10 illustrated in FIG. 1 includes a light source unit 12, a probe 14, and a measurement unit 16.
[0022]
The light source unit 12 includes two light sources: a mercury / xenon lamp (first light source) 18 and a halogen lamp (second light source) 20. The light emitted from the mercury / xenon lamp 18 is narrowed in width by the slits 22 and 24, and then separated by the double monochromator 26 into two predetermined wavelengths within a range of, for example, 300 to 400 nm. In order to measure the fluorescence derived from collagen and elastin, wavelengths of 335 nm and 365 nm (excitation wavelength) are used, for example. The wavelength of the light (first inspection light, denoted by a symbol L1) emitted from the double monochromator 26 is regulated by the slit 28. Light L1 having a predetermined wavelength and light (second inspection light, denoted by symbol L2) generated from the halogen lamp 20 are guided to the probe 14.
[0023]
The probe 14 includes an irradiation unit 30 that irradiates light to an examination site (a predetermined site on the skin) W, and light that configures first and second light guide units 32 and 34 that are connected to the irradiation unit 30, respectively. It is a fiber cable.
[0024]
The first light guide portion 32 has a side connected to the light source branched into two, and the light L1 and the light L2 enter the respective branch paths 32a and 32b. Each of the branch paths 32a and 32b is provided with a shutter 36 and 38, respectively, and the two shutters 36 and 38 are connected to a light source switching unit 40 that controls only one of the shutters to open. Thereby, the first light guide section 32 receives the light L1 from the mercury / xenon lamp 18 and the light L2 from the halogen lamp 20 in a switchable manner and guides the light L1 to the irradiation section 30. By irradiating the irradiation part 30 to the inspection part W, the light L1 or the light L2 is irradiated from the irradiation part 30 to the inspection part W. Then, the irradiated light L1 passes through the skin epidermis, reaches the dermis, and generates fluorescence. On the other hand, with respect to the irradiated light L2, part of the light L2 is absorbed and reflected by the epidermis, light transmitted through the epidermis reaches the dermis, and reflected light is generated after part of the light L2 is further absorbed. The fluorescent light or the reflected light enters the second light guide 34 via the irradiation unit 30 and is guided to the measurement unit 16.
[0025]
The measurement unit 16 includes a grating 42 and a photodiode array 46.
[0026]
The path of the fluorescence L1 or the reflected light L2 that has entered the measurement unit 16 is regulated by the slit 48. The fluorescent light L1 or the reflected light L2 that has passed through the slit 48 is reflected by the mirror 50, reaches the grating 42, and is separated for spectrum measurement. The fluorescent light L1 or the reflected light L2 from the grating 42 is reflected by the mirror 52 and enters a photodiode array 46 as an inspection device. Data (information) of the fluorescence L1 or the reflected light L2 obtained as an output signal from the photodiode array 46 is processed by, for example, a personal computer 54 and displayed on a display device 56 as a spectral pattern. The personal computer 54 also functions as correction means for correcting the fluorescence spectrum pattern with the reflected light spectrum pattern.
[0027]
Next, a method for measuring skin according to the present embodiment using the above-described measuring device 10 will be described.
[0028]
Prior to specifically describing the skin measuring method according to the present embodiment, a description will be given of the fluorescence characteristics when the skin is irradiated with light.
[0029]
First, the fluorescence spectrum of the dermis component will be described with reference to FIGS. In addition, this data is a sample of a commercially available collagen or elastin sample, and is represented by a two-dimensional spectrum with the vertical axis representing the excitation wavelength and the horizontal axis representing the fluorescence wavelength.
[0030]
FIG. 2 shows the fluorescence derived from collagen, and it can be seen that fluorescence having a large fluorescence intensity with 390 nm as the center wavelength is generated by the excitation wavelength of 335 nm.
[0031]
FIG. 3 shows the fluorescence derived from elastin, and it can be seen that fluorescence having a large fluorescence intensity with the center wavelength at 430 nm is generated by the excitation wavelength of 365 nm.
[0032]
For this reason, the excitation light has an excitation wavelength of 335 nm when measuring collagen, and has an excitation wavelength of 365 nm when measuring elastin.
[0033]
FIGS. 4 and 5 show the relationship between the fluorescence wavelength and the fluorescence intensity of collagen and elastin when using the respective excitation lights (wavelengths of 335 nm and 365 nm).
[0034]
Next, FIGS. 6 and 7 show examples of fluorescence spectrum patterns obtained when Japanese skin is used as a test object.
[0035]
As shown in FIG. 6, the fluorescence derived from collagen obtained by the excitation wavelength of 335 nm differs from FIG. 4, in which peaks of the fluorescence intensity are seen at two wavelengths of 390 nm and 430 nm. It can be seen that no fluorescence spectrum pattern was obtained.
[0036]
Also, as shown in FIG. 7, the fluorescence derived from elastin obtained by the excitation wavelength of 365 nm is different from FIG. 5 in that the peak wavelength shifts and a peak of the fluorescence intensity is observed at a wavelength of 450 nm. It can be seen that a true fluorescence spectrum pattern of the origin was not obtained.
[0037]
As described above, as a result of various investigations on the reason why a true fluorescence spectrum pattern cannot be obtained when a human is inspected, when light at the excitation wavelength (inspection light) travels in the epidermis before reaching the dermis It was considered that melanin contained in the epidermis and hemoglobin in the blood partially absorbed the light having the excitation wavelength or partially absorbed the generated fluorescence, and this could change the fluorescence spectrum pattern.
[0038]
In order to verify the above hypothesis, the following experiment was performed in which the same test site of the same human was irradiated with ultraviolet rays to change the amount of melanin in the epidermis and see the effect.
[0039]
FIG. 8 shows a fluorescence spectrum pattern obtained by irradiating a human skin irradiated with different amounts of ultraviolet rays with light having an excitation wavelength of 335 nm.
[0040]
The obtained fluorescence was derived from collagen, and it was found that the fluorescence intensity at the peak wavelength of 390 nm gradually decreased as the amount of ultraviolet irradiation increased, that is, as the amount of melanin in the epidermis increased.
[0041]
Next, FIGS. 9 and 10 show examples of examining the possibility of correcting the fluorescence spectrum pattern using the reflected light spectrum pattern, focusing on the fact that melanin or the like generally has a property of absorbing a part of light. .
[0042]
FIG. 9 shows a measurement of a fluorescence spectrum pattern derived from collagen at an excitation wavelength of 335 nm, and FIG. 10 shows a measurement of a fluorescence spectrum pattern derived from elastin at an excitation wavelength of 365 nm. (B) in FIG. 9 and FIG. 10 are the obtained fluorescence spectrum patterns. These fluorescence spectrum patterns are obtained by, for example, measuring the fluorescence obtained by irradiating the inspection light L1 of the mercury / xenon lamp 18 using the measuring device 10 described above. In FIG. 9B, the fluorescence spectrum pattern derived from collagen has two peak wavelengths of 390 nm and 430 nm. In FIG. 10 (b), the fluorescence spectrum pattern derived from elastin has an intensity peak at a wavelength of 450 nm. On the other hand, (a) in FIG. 9 and FIG. 10 shows a reflected light spectrum pattern. That is, the reflected light obtained by irradiating the inspection light L2 of the halogen lamp 20 with the measuring device 10 described above was measured. In the reflected light spectrum pattern, absorption by hemoglobin is observed at two places indicated by arrows.
[0043]
FIGS. 9 and 10 (c) are obtained by correcting the fluorescence spectrum pattern of FIGS. 9 and 10 (b) using the reflected light spectrum pattern data of FIGS. 9 and 10 (a). Specifically, it is obtained by dividing the fluorescence intensity at each fluorescence wavelength by the reflected light intensity at the corresponding wavelength. Such processing and display can be performed using the personal computer 54 and the display device 56 of the measuring device 10 described above. In the corrected fluorescence spectrum pattern of FIG. 9C, the peak wavelength at 430 nm disappears, and the intrinsic peak wavelength derived from collagen is seen at 390 nm. On the other hand, in the corrected fluorescence spectrum pattern of FIG. 10C, the peak wavelength at 450 nm disappears, and the intrinsic peak wavelength derived from elastin is observed at 430 nm.
[0044]
In order to further confirm the effect of the above correction with respect to the absorption of melanin, a human skin irradiated with a different amount of ultraviolet light as a test object is irradiated with light having a predetermined excitation wavelength as in FIG. FIG. 11 and FIG. 12 show the fluorescence intensity at the fluorescence wavelength and the result of correcting the fluorescence intensity with the reflected light intensity. 11 and 12, the horizontal axis represents the level of blackening of the skin caused by the difference in the amount of ultraviolet irradiation, and the vertical axis represents the fluorescence intensity.
[0045]
In FIGS. 11 and 12, “before correction” means that in the case of FIG. 11, the skin of different blackening level has the fluorescence wavelength of 390 nm obtained when the light of the excitation wavelength of 335 nm is irradiated similarly to the case of FIG. 8. FIG. 12 shows the fluorescence intensity, and in the case of FIG. 12, the fluorescence intensity at the fluorescence wavelength of 430 nm obtained when the light of the excitation wavelength of 365 nm is similarly irradiated. On the other hand, “after correction” is obtained by dividing the value of the fluorescence intensity before correction by the value of the intensity of the reflected light having the wavelength of 390 nm or 430 nm in the same manner as in FIGS. 9 and 10.
[0046]
In each of FIGS. 11 and 12, the fluorescence intensity before correction has a linear change in value depending on the skin blackening level, whereas the fluorescence intensity after correction has a different skin blackening level. However, the values are almost the same. That is, the fluorescence intensity from which the influence of the blackening of the skin was removed by the correction was obtained.
[0047]
According to the method for measuring skin fluorescence according to the present embodiment described above, the above-described hemoglobin and melanin given to the fluorescence data by measuring the reflected light in combination with the fluorescence and correcting the fluorescence data with the reflected light data are used. In order to eliminate the influence, the fluorescence of the skin derived from collagen or the like can be accurately measured, and the condition of the skin can be suitably judged based on the fluorescence.
[0048]
Further, according to the skin fluorescence measurement apparatus according to the present embodiment, the above-described skin fluorescence measurement method can be suitably performed. In addition, measurement can be performed easily and quickly simply by irradiating the probe's irradiation part to the skin inspection site without using a skin exfoliated sample, and one measurement part is shared and instantaneous using switching means. The fluorescent light and the reflected light can be measured by switching the light source.
[0049]
【The invention's effect】
According to the method for measuring skin fluorescence according to the present invention, a predetermined portion of the skin is irradiated with the first inspection light having a predetermined wavelength, and the fluorescence generated from the predetermined portion is measured. Further irradiating the second inspection light including the wavelength, measuring the reflected light from a predetermined part, and correcting the fluorescence data by the reflected light data, it is possible to accurately measure the fluorescence of the skin, The condition of the skin can be appropriately determined based on the condition.
[0050]
Further, according to the skin fluorescence measurement apparatus of the present invention, the first light source for providing the first inspection light, the second light source for providing the second inspection light, the measurement unit, the probe, and the light source switching device And further having a correction means for correcting the fluorescence characteristic data with the reflected light characteristic data, it is possible to suitably realize the above-mentioned skin fluorescence measurement method, in particular, without using a skin peeling sample Measurement can be performed easily and quickly simply by irradiating the irradiation part of the probe to the site to be examined on the skin. Also, one measurement part is shared, and the light source is instantaneously switched using the switching means to change the fluorescence and reflected light. Can be measured.
