(KERO) — A research team says they found a way to rejuvenate the skin of a 53-year-old woman.

Scientists at Babraham Institute in Cambridge say the skin is now the equivalent of a 23-year-old.

Researchers hope to eventually use the method to create treatments for age-related diseases like diabetes, heart disease, and brain disorders.



The process includes putting cells into a chemical bath that was supposed to turn them into stem cells.

Researchers say the technique is a long way from being put into use due to health risks but hope to find safer methods to make it possible.
