New Wrinkle Treatment Is Unsurprisingly Weird & Gross

You know how some liposuction procedures recycle your fat by putting it back into places you want to enhance? Now, a similar concept is being applied to a new wrinkle treatment called the Selphyl System. A “face filler,” the process starts by taking your body’s own platelets (acquired by separating the components of your blood), which is then pumped back into areas on your face where there are fine lines and wrinkles. Supposedly, the platelets stimulate collagen production, which contours skin depressions.

Sounds kind of creepy and gross, but we will say this—it’s far less scary than injecting God-knows-what’s-in-it Botox chemicals into your face. [Inventor Spot]
