CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwire) -- 03/11/13 -- Dr. Jennifer Hein of the Women's Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery has recently reacted to an article published by the Huffington Post that reports on the innovation of WearRepair, an anti-aging clothing line. In her press statement, Dr. Hein encourages individuals to be wary of breakthrough products that are not yet tested for long-term results, but applauds the creativity and revolutionary nature of this new clothing line.

According to the article, WearRepair comprises leggings, shirts and tanks that claim to have the ability to improve skin texture, reduce hyper-pigmentation and minimize wrinkles. Created by Cass Luxury Shapewear, the secret to WearRepair lies in the use of copper.

"Engineered exclusively by Cupron Technology, the fabric in Cass WearRepair contains copper oxide, an essential mineral that is required for healthy living but isn't found naturally in our skin," asserts the article. "According to the folks at Cupron Technology, copper stimulates the production of capillaries and collagen, the same process touted by many anti-aging beauty products."

Dr. Jennifer Hein of the Women's Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery encourages individuals to practice caution when dealing with such anti-aging innovations. "Any breakthroughs in the field of anti-aging are certainly exciting," explains Dr. Hein, "but it is important to be wary of new products and treatments that are not yet time-tested. Results like those described in the article from the Rachael Ray audience certainly seem exciting and encouraging; however, they are not scientific and do not indicate long-term results, which are two integral factors when determining whether or not a new product is effective. That being said, though, this clothing line is a great idea in terms of approaching beauty from the outside in. When trying to sort out the hundreds of new innovations and products in the field of beauty, it is important to look at the long-term results. If you are absolutely dead set on trying something new and scientifically untested, which I highly discourage, try to get into a university-based study that will put the proper precautions and safety guidelines into place. This can minimize the danger that you face when trying out a new product or treatment."

Dr. Hein encourages individuals who are interested in anti-aging products and services to contact the Women's Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery to learn more about the organization's offerings. Interested individuals can call 1-800-DEFY-AGE (1-800-333-9243) or visit
