Aging also results in things we don't like, such as the formation of wrinkles or sagging skin.The scientists managed to create a reactive polymer blend composition with a tensile modulus of 0.48 MPa, a fracture strain of 826 percent, an adhesive strength of 78 N/mm, and the appropriate elasticity.This level of improvement had only been achieved previously through an invasive surgical procedure called a "blepharoplasty" .Both blinded and trained graders found significant improvements in skin quality after one hour and four hours of wear.Those treated with the placebo also exhibited some modest improvements compared to the baseline, likely due to hydration caused by the polymer layer and potentially optical changes caused by the light-scattering particles.The synthetic material showed a remarkable adherence to the underlying skin and remained intact following activities such as running and swimming.
