Have you ever dreamt of being always young and having elastic skin? Researchers from the Department of Dermatology at the University of Michigan have recently discovered the way to slow the decline of aging tissue by adding more filler to the fiber-filled area around the skin cells. With the lapse of time, as skin ages, the ECM (extracellular matrix) created by fibroblasts becomes fragmented. During the experiment, conducted with 21 volunteers in their 80s, the subjects got injections with a filler that is used to reduce facial wrinkles in cosmetics. This filler upheld the ECM, filling in the spaces left by aging, the fibroblasts began producing collagen-related genes. As a result the ECM became less fragmented, the whole layer of skin grew thicker and more blood vessels were created to nourish the cells. Of course this cosmetic filler is not supposed to be used through the body, cause the scientists focused on the buttocks skin, which is not so subject to aging as the facial skin because of the exposure to ultraviolet light. Still researchers hope, that a better understanding of the ECM will steer them into the methods of prevention and treatment of damaged skin cells.
