An estrogen alternative used to treat osteo-porosis could be beneficial in other ways.
Researchers at Brigham and women's hospital in Boston gave the drug Raloxifene to four hundred women past the age of menopause.
They say the drug was able to lower levels of the so-called bad cholesterol while lifting levels of good cholesterol.
Estrogen therapy produces the same results, but Raloxifene does not carry the same cancer risks.
Plastic surgeons are trying something new to remove deep wrinkles.
They're implanting little cylinders of Gortex under the skin. That's the material used in raincoats and running suits.
Unlike collagen injections which have to be re-injected every three to four months, Gortex is permenant.
And doctors say it is safer than silicone because the body can't reject it.
[IN Q=We have a long history....]
[SUPER=01-Dr. Michael Kaminer/Plastic Surgeon;]
[OUT Q=does long term.]
The only apparent drawback is Gortex does not work on fine wrinkles, only deep lines.
The procedure also works well to fill in the lips.
The surgery costs anywhere from 25-hundred to three-thousand dollars.
