Why does skin revert back to its normal condition after alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) treatment is stopped? If AHA is supposed to increase collagen or encourage cell proliferation, why aren't the anti-aging effects permanent?
It seems pointless to expose your delicate facial skin to this topical treatment if the effects are limited. Does research indicate that the skin will return to its normal state after treatment with Epidermal Growth Factors, Insulin-like Growth Factors, Glycolic Acid, Chemical Peels, and products like Amotokin that stimulate stem cell activity?
I am totally confused by all the conflicting information out there.
