As we get older, the trillions of cells in our body do, too. And like us, they become less resilient and able to weather the stress of everyday life. Our skin especially tells the tale of what's happening throughout our bodies. But recently, scientists have learned that aging cells bear only part of the blame for this downward spiral. More

Are pricey DNA skin creams worth the money? Docs say no
TODAY    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Martin Kyran spit into a vial, handed it to the DNA tester and hoped for the best. The 39-year-old marketing manager wasn't undergoing medical tests, nor was he being investigated for a crime. The truth is, he had a wrinkle. He's just one of the many men and women turning to DNA technology in an effort to treat and prevent skincare issues by matching topical products to their genetic profiles. It appears the ultimate in personalization, but is a genetics-based skin regimen smart or a bit silly? More

Perchance to make you look rested
The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Over the years we've been willing to apply almost any salve to the thin-skinned half moons under our eyes. Favorites include cold cucumber slices, eye serums with caffeine and Preparation H. Or there's the nuclear option: blepharoplasty, which removes excess skin and fat from the eyelids to make them look smoother. But recently another fix has emerged: A dermatologist-offered procedure called tear-trough fillers, during which hyaluronic acid such as Restylane or Juvéderm is injected on top of the orbital bone to make the eyes appear better rested.

Scientists can now gauge skin's true age with new laser technique
Optical Society of America via ScienceDaily    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Wrinkles, dryness and a translucent and fragile appearance are hallmarks of old skin, caused by the natural aging of skin cells. But while most of us can recognize the signs of lost youth when we peer into the mirror each morning, scientists do not have a standardized way to measure the extent of age damage in skin. Now, a group of Taiwanese researchers have used a specialized microscope to peer harmlessly beneath the skin surface to measure natural age-related changes in the sizes of skin cells. More



The procedure includes Peeling and Prepping Solutions and a 1% Retinol Cream. Results include improvements in skin tone, texture, and firmness, and reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Safe for all skin types.

New wrinkle fighter promises greater results without visible side effects
KVUE-TV    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In the never-ending war on facial wrinkles, just about everyone has heard of Botox, which inhibits the chemical that allows muscles to contract. However, Botox isn't for everyone. Wrinkle fillers are injectable alternatives, but they too have had their flaws, until now. An Austin, Texas, facial plastic surgeon says a new wrinkle filler, Belotero, fills those hard-to-treat wrinkles without the visible side effects. More
