Who can benefit from Ultrasound Therapy?
Collagen production peaks at age 20. After the age of 20, the dermis layer produces 1% less collagen each year.
20’s: The skin’s exfoliation process decreases by 28%. This means our dead skin cells stick together for longer periods of time, and needs extra help to slough off.
30’s: The transfer of moisture from the dermis to the epidermis is slowed and fat cells begin to shrink. These effects make the skin look dull and thin.
40’s: Collagen has been reduced significantly. The collagen and elastin fibers break, losing their elasticity in the process.
50’s: The skin becomes dry and is easily bruised as the sebaceous glands (which produce oil) have decreased in size. Menopause also causes a decrease in estrogen levels, leaving the skin drier and less toned.
