Injectable peptide could help regenerate the fat lost in ageing skin

An injectable peptide that helps induce the growth of fat under the skin could help plump up aging skin, according to researchers from the Berkeley Laboratory.

The technology might be able to replace dermal filler injections and cosmetic surgery procedures, says the company ProGDerm that is working to bring the science to market.

The peptide modulates the behaviour of the RHAMM protein (Receptor for Hyaluronan Mediated Motility) which was originally discovered during research into cancer cell mobility.
