Do you have wrinkles?

You may qualify if you are age 18 or older with moderate to severe wrinkles.

Participation involves:

  • Topical application of sulforaphane (broccoli extract)
  • Photographs
  • Skin biopsies

About the study: In this study we are going to investigate the expression of keratins before and after application of sulforaphane (broccoli extract) to the skin and determine whether these findings alter skin fragility seen in skin aging as well as in ultraviolet light/visible light exposure. We will examine skin samples taken from photoprotected and photodamaged skin, before and after application of sulforaphane. Compensation for time and travel available up to $200.
