    The idea is to develop a way to reduce skin aging by adding fiber to the areas around skin cells, causing the cells to act like younger cells again.
    The process will involve adding filler to the extracellular matrix, or ECM, that acts as a scaffold for the cells. As the skin ages, the ECM begins to fragment, which causes the cells to lose their supportive connections and hastens their decline.
