New research reverses skin aging by 30 years
Research & future possibilities
Recent research has found that skin cells can be rejuvenated by up to 30 years using a new method of genetic reprogramming without losing their identity. However, this technique is still in the early stages of development and is not yet applicable to human patients. Partially reprogrammed cells, such as skin cells, can become biologically younger while retaining specialized cell functions. The biological age of the partially reprogrammed skin cells was rejuvenated to be 30 years younger. This technique has the potential to treat various age-related diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease.
A decade ago, Japanese scientist Yamanaka received the Nobel prize for describing a group of proteins that can bring cells back to their earliest stage. However, these early cells lose all their functions due to being at such an early stage of life.
Another area of research is Epigenetics, which focuses on influencing gene expression to rejuvenate the skin and delay aging. The epigenome can be influenced by environmental factors, such as a person’s diet and exposure to pollutants.
What can doctors offer now?
Currently, doctors offer prevention and rejuvenation factors for treating aging. For prevention, doctors mainly rely on sunscreens and a healthy lifestyle, including avoiding smoking, exercising, and eating a balanced diet. For treatment, doctors mainly use retinoid creams, vitamins, peptides, and hydration. Combining skin boosters and bio-revitalizing injections containing hyaluronic acid can also help rejuvenate the skin.
Sunscreens like Anthelios from La Roche Pose or Avene are recommended for prevention. If you have oily skin, use a lotion to avoid clogging pores.
Retinoids, such as Retinol, Adapalene, and Acretin, are the mainstay of treatment. Vitamins C, E, B,D and peptides can also be used. Creams that contain all these ingredients in a moisturizing base are practical and effective. Duo-Selene Antiaging Moisturizing Night Cream and Duo-Selene Eye-Contour Cream are preferred options and are available on Amazon in Egypt.
Biorevitalizing skin boosting injections based on hyaluronic acid, such as Restylane skin boosters, Stylage hydro, Profhilo, Teosyal Redensity, and Amber, can also help rejuvenate the skin.
