Quick! Call a copper! Or something

THE VERDICT IS IN! I wrote a while back about copper pillow cases (tomorrow it may be titanium). 

Anyway, pillow cases that contain copper oxide may improve skin texture and reduce facial wrinkles.  A study reported in 
the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology involved 61 patients (30 with copper; 31 control group). 

The authors did 3-D imaging (kind of like Star Wars), and measured 3 roughness parameters and they found no difference in the control group but a definite decrease in crows feet appearances in those sleeping on copper oxide.  

Amazes me, even as a board certified cosmetic surgeon.
