DENVER -- Thousands of women rely on Botox and other wrinkle-fillers to keep a younger, fresher look. But now, new research is paving the way for a whole new option.

The Laviv treatment allows doctors to take something you already have in your body and use it to fill out wrinkles without any chemicals.

Hedy Mantel says she loves the natural look she sees in the mirror.

"All of these lines I’ve earned. I don’t want to get rid of them,” she told us. “I want them little softened just as I’ve gotten a little softer myself over the years."

Dr. Joel Cohen gradually smooths wrinkled areas with skin cells taken from behind her ear. They are then multiplied and the collagen producing cells are placed back into the face.
