CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwire) -- 03/12/13 -- In a recent press statement, Dr. Jennifer Hein of the Women's Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery responded to an article posted by CBS that sheds light on a new way to incorporate anti-aging substance resveratrol into a cosmetic strategy: through a cream. Dr. Hein encourages individuals to look at the research conducted regarding this and other innovative anti-aging treatments before using them and to partner with a medical professional when developing an anti-aging strategy.
According to the article, the limited research that has been completed shows a favorable reaction of the skin to topically applied resveratrol: "Research is limited when it comes to resveratrol's anti-aging benefits when applied externally on humans, but there have been some studies that suggest the compound could help skin. In one study published by the National Institutes of Health in 2005, resveratrol was applied to the skin of laboratory animals, who were then subjected to high ultraviolet radiation. Researchers found the compound protected the animals."
The article asserts that other studies, too, have shown the effectiveness of resveratrol in supporting skin health, although the best way to use this antioxidant is still up for debate.
"Resveratrol appears to have some encouraging data," asserts Dr. Hein. "As with all studies, though, it is important to note how the data is gathered. We must ask if the study was conducted in a university setting, or if it was run as a double blind experiment. These are all important factors that contribute to the credibility of a research initiative."
Dr. Hein goes on to note, "While resveratrol and other treatments may be wonderful tools, if one is looking for a great, healthy looking body the first place to start is with diet and exercise. There is, unfortunately, no miracle product or substance to replace a healthy diet and a physically active routine. There are, however, products and services that can help bolster them. As always, check with your medical professional to find out their recommendations based on science and long-term results."
