BACKGROUND/AIMS Changes in the dermis associated with ageing can be detected by high-frequency skin ultrasonography. In photoaged skin, this technique shows a subepidermal low echo-genic band (SLEB) that is probably an ultrasound manifestation of elastosis and oedema in the papillary dermis. Since some authors found an association between age and SLEB thickness or its echogenicity on exposed sites, it has been proposed to use these parameters to quantify skin photoageing. METHODS To determine… CONTINUE READING
