Oxygen tank
Recent experiments published in the latest issue of Aging associate hyperbaric oxygen therapy with improvements in several biomarkers of skin aging. SkinSkin, as the most readily visible organ of the human body, is one of the first to let us know that we are getting older. Our skin goes beyond appearance; it protects our internal...
Skin aging
A group of researchers successfully alleviated aspects of skin aging by treating skin cells with the NAD precursor nicotinamide [1]. Hard work done by skin leads to its burnout Skin aging might not be lethal, apart from the increased risk of skin cancer, but it's surely conspicuous, frustrating, and emblematic of organismal aging. Being our...
Collagen
What is collagen? Collagens are important structural proteins for the various tissues in our bodies. These include tendon, cartilage, ligaments, blood vessels, muscles, and skin. They act as supporting structures and tether cells together. They give our skin and other tissues its strength and elasticity [1]. They are the most abundant proteins and make up...
Injured Hand
The latest research out of the Journal of Cell Biology shines a light on why our skin loses its healing abilities as we age. SkinSkin, as the most readily visible organ of the human body, is one of the first to let us know that we are getting older. Our skin goes beyond appearance; it...
Scarring
Researchers have been trying to find out how to stop the formation of scars for decades, and now, thanks to a new mouse study, they are one step closer. Scars are a fast but poor repair Many of us have scars of one kind or another from accidents or surgery. As unpleasant as they are,...
Skin peeling
Researchers have identified a factor present in the skin of baby mice that controls the formation of hair follicles during their early development. The factor is turned off in adult mice, but when it is turned back on, it allows them to regenerate their skin following injury without scarring, just like baby mice do. SkinSkin,...
