Abstract

Objective To evaluate silicon level in normal skin tissue. Methods The silicon levels in skin samples were measured using an atomic absorbance spectrophotometer in 37 healthy normal females who had never received silicone injection and compared with those who had developed granuloma after silicone injection.. Results Low silicon level (44.07±75.86 μg/g) was found in skin tissues of normal individuals as compared to those who developed post-silicone granuloma (1709.21±1851.72 μg/g). Conclusion Silicon may be found in normal skin tissue due to daily use of cosmetic products; however the level is significantly low. Key words Silicon, skin, topical, accumulation.
