Clinical studies show that alpha lipoic acid reduces mild-to-moderate wrinkles by up to 50%, whereas fine lines almost disappear completely. In another study, alpha lipoic acid significantly improved the appearance of certain types of scars. Alpha lipoic acid also reduces oedema (puffiness) around the eyes. The appearance of the skin can take on a healthy glow after 3-4 days of use. After a few weeks, fine lines (wrinkles) should begin to diminish. Lipomal™ is a unique water-soluble form of alpha lipoic acid that improves skin penetration and delivery.
