equipment designed to specifically measure wrinkle depth.
Statistically significant improvement in the skin was seen after four weeks among those who used the
Cupron pillowcases compared to those who did not, as determined by both expert graders and the
imaging devices. Continued improvement was noted after eight weeks. The study was conducted by
Dermapro, a clinical trial institute specializing in the evaluation of cosmetic products.
