Alternative treatment of remedies taken from nature
Another method of treating aging skin that smooths wrinkles is to use alpha hydroxy acids of five different acids found in such common foods as sugar cane, sour milk, apples, pears, oranges, mangoes, grapes and lemons.
Studies have shown that all these acids help smooth out wrinkles, eliminate senile spots, improve the condition of dry skin, and even reduce the formation of acne and acne marks.
Eugene J. Van Scott, MD, professor of dermatology at the University of Hanemann in Philadelphia, one of the leading researchers in the field of alpha hydroxy acids. For 15 years, he has been using them to treat acne and ichthyosis, a characteristic manifestation of which is dry, scaly skin. He noticed that as a result of the treatment, some of his patients are starting to look younger. They have lost age spots, wrinkles are smoothed.
What is going on?
It often happens that dead skin cells are not rejected, which should be normal. They accumulate, forming a thick outer layer, and the skin looks dull and old. If you remove these layers, then, according to Dr. Van Scott, the skin will be better. This is how alpha hydroxy acids work. They soften the “physiological glue” that holds dead skin cells together and can now be removed. And under them is the skin, soft, like a child.
Wrinkle treatment is a simple outpatient procedure. For a few minutes, a concentrated solution of alpha hydroxy acids is applied to the skin, which at the end of the procedure is washed off with water. The patient may feel a slight burning sensation, indicating that a certain amount of solution penetrates the skin and exerts its effect.
How effective these hydroxy acids will show further research. In case of success, we will get a method of treatment with natural remedies that can replace the tightening of the skin of the face.
