Boston - Stimulating the body to regenerate itself and repair the damage of aging is the latest goal of anti-aging medicine. One of the founding members of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine and the first president of the American Board of Anti-Aging Medicine, Vincent C. Giampapa, M.D., F.A.C.S., says research shows that, if given the right conditions, stem cells in the subcutaneous layer of the skin can develop into healthier tissue and inhibit the aging process.
