Grow Your Own Giant Lips!
Well, sort of. Isolagen will actually grow the collagen for you, but it will be made from your own cells, from a patch of skin taken from behind your ear. After six weeks, the newborn collagen will be sent to your doctor who can inject it into wrinkles, scars, and lips. Because Isolagen is made from your own cells, it should be better tolerated than bovine collagen.
How much collagen can they make from one skin sample? Isolagen says they hope that clinical trials will show that the sample can be stored and used again and again. I hope so. While some cows may be praying for Isolagen to save their hides, I worry about Melanie Griffith's poor ears.
Watch the conception of Isolagen.
