Copper can be used in a Dupuytrens contracture treatment plan because it is an essential mineral necessary to the tissue remodeling phase that occurs after excess scar tissue has formed. It is not uncommon to see excess scar formation and soft tissue contraction and thickening in a person with copper deficiency. (1-5)Use of copper has been repeatedly found to reduce the appearance of even old and healed scars on the surface of the skin. Copper has been found to be a critically important mineral element needed to repair a site of tissue injury. The cosmetics industry has long known and used copper as the essential ingredient in any preparation that reduces or removes faulty collagen formation, as with facial wrinkles. Accordingly, what is beneficial for one problem (a wrinkle or a surface scar) might also be beneficial for a similar problem (thickened cords and contracted tissue of Dupuytrens contracture or the internal scar of Peyronie’s disease).

Dupuytrens contracture and Peyronie’s disease connection

There are many statistical and clinical similarities between Dupuytrens contracture and Peyronie’s disease. So much so, that there is even a connection between treatment that has benefited one condition being also potentially beneficial for the other. Because of this, it is common to learn from men who are being treated with a PDI therapy program for their Peyronie’s disease that their concurrent Dupuytrens contracture is also improving.
Copper product recommendation for Dupuytrens treatment

Loren Pickart, PhD, who holds numerous patents for his discoveries and innovations with problems in dermatology; he is perhaps the leading world authority on the use of copper for skin problems.

He manufacturers an excellent copper formula that he has recommended in personal communication with DCI for the use of attempting to stimulate remodeling and reversal of the nodule and cord formation of Dupuytrens contracture. This product is called Super CP Serum.

Dr. Pickart has experience with Super CP Serum in thousands of cases of different skin problems. He advises that for Super CP Serum to reach the deep Dupuytrens contracture, extra penetration of the copper-peptides would occur if Super CP Serum was applied at the same time with DMSO.

Place 2-3 drops of Super CP Serum on the contracted tissue of the palm and fingers, and work into the skin with your finger. Initially the Super CP Serum will feel slippery, but after just a few seconds it will penetrate the area and you will feel a certain resistance or drag as you rub it in. At this point stop working it in, and apply a small amount of DMSO over the same area of the hand you just applied the Super CP Serum. Let the area air-dry.
