ALA can help regenerate vitamin C and E in your system, and helps moisturize the skin. Maybe it's ability to regenerate vitamin C helps with scarring? It might be a good supplement with some kind of procedure.

I have been taking 200 mg of Alpha lipoic acid with 400mg of acetyl L-carnitine everyday for at least a month and I have not noticed any major changes in my scarring.

I used Perricone's ala lotion and I think I was was taking ala pills with it. No change in my skin after six or 12 months or whatever was suggested in his book.

I did however make Perricone Enterprises healthier. :redface:

Some people swear that ALA plumps up their skin. As for me..For the past 2 years, Ive been taking 400mg alpha lipoic acid, plus 4-6 grms MSM, multi vit. COQ10, 6grms C and many more.. with NO improvement in skin quality or scars.
