Time has no master. No matter how much we exercise. No matter how much we avoid hot dogs and the like. No matter how much sunscreen we slather onto our skin. No matter what we do our skin still ages. Simply delaying time’s inexorable trajectory would be nice. Fortunately, the signs of aging, while unstoppable, […]


Better Skin Through 12 Tiny Needles

The idea of puncturing the skin to trigger a wound-healing response from the body is nothing new. It was first tried clinically in the 1950s, but there were problems with infection.
