Answer access question 'under protest' says GPC

Dr Gordon Dougal claims to have discovered a cure for wrinkles.

Dr Dougal, a GP in Peterlee, County Durham, and eye surgeon colleague Jim Haslam have refined a technique they developed for treating cold sores using near-infrared light. They conducted research at the University of Sunderland into the effects of Restorelite on wrinkles around the eyes and the results were surprising.

Dr Dougal says the technique could also be used to treat ectropion and acne, and will submit his work for peer review.

'We thought it would have some benefit but we didn't expect the shrinking of wrinkles to be so dramatic,' he said.
