The study is part of a larger effort by the University of Houston and University of California to identify the impact cosmetics have on skin.
The study, which was published on Friday in the journal PLOS ONE, looked at the skin of 1,500 healthy volunteers between the ages of 18 and 69 who were randomly assigned to a one-year cosmetic-dental regimen or a control group.
The study also included a third group of women who had never had cosmetic dentistry before.
The researchers found that after just one year, the cosmetic dentists experienced significant improvements in skin color and texture, but not hair loss.
In addition, the researchers found no difference in overall quality of the skin or overall function of the individual’s skin, and that these improvements occurred even after controlling for factors that could impact the skin such as age and other health conditions.
The women who received cosmetic dentements also reported significantly fewer skin-related infections, fewer cosmetic dermatological complaints and fewer skin lesions, compared to the control group, which included those who had received no cosmetic dentism.
However, the study did not look at the impact on the overall health of the women’s families or the health of their children, the authors said.
