Fig. 4

Obesity-associated changes of skin property and correlation between indices. Correlation of skin surface roughness with serum insulin and leptin was represented by scatter plots (a, b). Open circles show NOB, and filled circles show OB. Changes of local and systemic indices associated with obesity (↑: increase, ↓: decrease) and correlation were summarized in a diagram (c). Solid lines represent statistically significant correlation between indices, and thick lines represent strong correlation (correlation efficiency >0.40 or < −0.4)
