Beyond Botox — the Future of Anti-Ageing

May 31, 2016

(The Telegraph) – For most of us, anti-ageing means wearing sunscreen, investing in a good moisturiser, maybe a spot of Botox and hoping for the best. But research in this lucrative area is moving at an extraordinary pace – and for today’s longevity researchers, anti-ageing means just that: slowing down, or even reversing ageing as we know it. Last month, US researchers tested lab-grown ‘second skin’ that can literally erase wrinkles for 24 hours. Experts predict the arrival of lab-grown organs routinely implanted at your local hospital, genes that can be edited to erase disease and a longer life that’s a prescription away.
