PHILADELPHIA, PA, February 27, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Creating younger acting and looking tissue has long been the goal of the cosmetic medical field; however, as an article posted by NBC News indicates, the technology behind the anti-aging movement is applicable to a variety of healthcare interests. According to the article, a study that injected elderly individuals with dermal fillers to improve the healing process of aged skin has uncovered the Possibility that Restylane can actually create younger acting tissue. Dr. Jennifer Hein of the Women's Institute of Cosmetic and Laser Surgery
encourages the research of this and other groundbreaking research efforts; however, she cautions individuals against misinterpreting these results. She contends that "cautious optimism" is the best way to view this and other revolutionary announcements until the details of the procedure--and its effects on the body--are better understood.
According to the article, researchers were attempting to improve the ability of elderly individuals' skin to heal after making an incision. They injected Restylane into nearly 24 80 year old study participants. Through a series of biopsies, which were taken at one, two, four, and 12 weeks after the injection, researchers determined that the tissue that had received the dermal filler was showing characteristics of younger tissue.
Gary Fisher, Ph.D., the senior author of this study, explains: "When we injected the filler and increased the mechanical pressure around the cells, the cells responded robustly. They made new collagen and several features of the skin improved in the direction of looking younger and behaving younger."
"Studies such as this are very exciting, but I feel it is prudent to caution individuals to pay close attention to how results are interpreted," comments Dr. Hein of the Women's Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery. "Further testing and more clinical trials need to be completed before the results of this particular study can be completely contextualized. There are countless new cosmetic procedures and treatments that pop up every year, and it can be difficult to find out whether they are backed up by time-tested science or junk science, which is supported by little in the way of actual evidence. An attitude of cautious optimism is the best way to approach these exciting new research announcements. Until something is time-tested, I will continue to offer the time tested procedures that I know can help meet my patients' needs, as I am dedicated to their safety and would never offer a procedure about which I was unsure."
