Let’s get rid of those wrinkles! Afraid of mice?

Everyone wishes he could live longer, but what is nicer is if we can do that without the creases and lines that ravage our face and bodies.

It’s a losing battle and it’s not cheap.

Botox’s world-wide sales reached  $3.6 billion last year while the global anti-wrinkle products market size was valued at $20.25 billion in 2018 and is projected to witness a growth rate of 5.7% from 2019 to 2025.

And most of that is done injecting needles filled with a cocktail of fluids into our bodies.

Ouch.

Well, there might some reprieve for that.

Mice, for once, were the beneficiary of Pain free scientific tests performed on them. Afterwards, It got a few Jerrys (Sorry TOM) wowing about their new younger skin, as they looked at their reflection in hidden wall hideouts.

Mice on air Jets 

ACS Nano brought the news of smoothing wrinkles in mice without needles. 

“Researchers have developed a needle-free “exosome” treatment that reduces wrinkles in UV-exposed mice,” ACS Nano reported.

As skin cells age, they lose their ability to multiply and to produce collagen, which is the main structural protein in skin. The researchers tested a needle-free device that uses a jet of air to deliver medications deep into the skin.

Three weeks later, the treated mice showed significantly thinner and more superficial wrinkles than untreated mice or those that received topical retinoic acid, a standard anti-aging medication.   

Botox injections and dermal fillers to treat wrinkles could be a thing of the past, if a new natural treatment is proven to work, said the DailyMail

“Scientists believe healthy skin cells could one day be ‘banked’ and used later in life, when the effects of ageing have taken their toll,” it added. 

The mice test was 30% more effective than one of the most advanced anti-ageing methods which uses stem cells, according to the team at North Caroline State University.

The developers hope the technique will also works on humans, paving the way for a needle-free method to curing wrinkles.
