The Importance of Measuring Skin Quality: Using EPCs and Regenerative Aesthetics to Rejuvenate Your Appearance

Skin quality plays an important role in defining our perceived age, health, youthfulness, and attractiveness, and because of this it can take a toll on many people’s social and emotional wellbeing.

Throughout our lives, there are many factors that can affect this quality from the intrinsic ageing process, which includes a natural decline in collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production, to external factors like UV exposure or lifestyle choices such as smoking, our diet, and stress. While skin quality inevitably declines and concerns such as dryness, wrinkles and sagging, and textural imperfections may appear, there are a range of rejuvenating and regenerative aesthetics skin treatments that we can turn to that restore your confidence.

When it comes to achieving a refreshed appearance, measuring your skin quality is essential to identify your concerns and determine the best path forward. So how can we achieve this?

Determining Skin Quality

We can determine skin quality with a criteria tool that includes four emergent perpetual categories (EPCs), including skin tone evenness, skin surface evenness, skin firmness, and skin glow. Pinpointing concerns from these categories allows us to choose the best treatments with the aim of enhancing your overall complexion. Below, we look at the factors contributing to each category:

  • Skin Tone Evenness
    This category includes pigmentation, erythema, and discolouration.
  • Skin Surface Evenness
    This category includes pore size, crepiness, wrinkles and lines, scarring, visible hair, and skin clarity.
  • Skin Firmness
    This category includes elasticity, tightness, and hydration.
  • Skin Glow
    This category has no specific factors, but can be seen as a result when factors from other categories are addressed.


Being aware of these categories is also helpful for patients looking to discuss the concerns they’d like to target during a consult.

How Can You Improve Your Skin Quality?

While topical products may help to refine these factors, their cause may be in deep tissues or structures. This makes a holistic and multi-layered approach necessary, with treatments being an ideal option to target concerns beyond the skin’s surface level for more noticeable results.


At Ocean Cosmetics we’re committed to staying at the forefront of technology and techniques with a range of regenerative aesthetics treatments that harness the body’s natural ability to repair, heal, and rejuvenate. Some examples of the treatments we can provide to target each category, improve skin quality, and unlock a radiant complexion are below. Many of these treatments can effectively address concerns from more than one category, and a full list of our treatments can be found on the website.
