(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- Instead of a facelift, one dermatologist says there is a non-surgical way to make you look younger. However, you have to be willing to change the foods you eat every day. He says this could be the cure for wrinkles.
Lunch for Phyllis Keitlen is water, fruit and salmon. She eats this way to take care of her skin. "I've psyched myself into the change. Would I like to have a pizza right now? I'd love to have a big pizza, but I also want to look good, and you can't have it all."
This is how her skin looked six weeks ago. Compare that picture to today.
Phyllis attributes the difference to a program designed by former Yale dermatologist Nicholas Perricone, M.D. "I've never seen healthy, beautiful glowing skin on a person who was unhealthy," he explains.
Dr. Perricone says it starts with your diet. He says sugar causes inflammation in the skin, which accelerates the aging process. He says, "It may not be completely well accepted-science at this time. It always takes a little while for things to catch up, but the reality is on an individual basis. It's exciting."
Besides avoiding sugar, Dr. Perricone recommends eating only anti-inflammatory foods such as egg whites, fresh fruit, oatmeal, salad, turkey and salmon. "If you eat salmon you actually can bring inflammation down, give yourself enough protein to repair those skin cells and increase skin tone," he says.
The change in Phyllis has been dramatic. "Someone asked me if I had a facelift," she says. She'll only admit to being 50 years old, but says she feels so good she's even started exercising.
Dr. Perricone says the key is foods that are low fat, high protein and no sugar. He says his patients who have tried his diet say they see a difference in just three days!
