The free radical theory of aging was first proposed in 1956, and states that aging is a result of free radical formation that leads to inflammation and cell damage. This process takes place not only in your skin, but in your arteries, heart and other organs. The skin care specialists at Baumann Cosmetic & Research Institute will educate you on how to decrease your levels of free radicals, as well as other ways to slow the aging process and revitalize your skin. Signs of aging include red moles, brown spots, wrinkles, "skin tags", loss of fat in the face, addition of fat in unwanted areas, and changes in skin texture and color. In addition to skin care and lifestyle changes, we specialize in procedures that counteract the effects of aging.
