NEW YORK (CBSNewYork.com) — What is the secret to a smooth, younger-looking complexion?
Foreskin, apparently. Baby foreskin to be exact.
The anti-aging industry is a billion dollar one, and both men and women will try just about anything to get a youthful appearance.
Better known as a HydraFacialMD, the treatment claims to be highly effective at improving overall skin health and remedying fine lines and wrinkles, skin texture and advanced signs of aging — among other things.
Dr. Gail Naughton, who developed the technology, told NY Magazine, “As we age, our cells divide at a slower rate, which contribute to the telltale signs of aging, like wrinkles and loss of firmness and luminosity. Growth factors captured from the donated foreskin of a baby (just one can generate over a million treatments) are at their peak ability in promoting rapid cell turnover. Applied topically, they spur adult skin cells to regenerate. This is said to have a smoothing effect on the skin.”
