Objective wrinkle grading scales have been described for Caucasians and Japanese, but none for South-east Asians. Southeast Asians tend to be darker in skin complexion (usually skin types IV and above). A wrinkle scale using fairer Caucasian and Japanese skin, may not be easily applicable for the darker Southeast Asian skin. Therefore, in this paper, we describe and validate a wrinkle grading scale for Southeast Asians.
