SLIMMING GEL Tummy, Hips and Buttocks

Firming and Slimming Treatment

Aim of the Study

The study evaluated the efficacy of the remodeling product SLIMMING GEL Tummy, Hips, Buttocks. In particular, it was examined the product’s ability to act on localized fat deposits, typical of female body (abdomen, hips, thighs and buttocks), and exercise a firming effect on the treated skin. The efficacy of the product was evaluated by non-invasive bioengineering techniques able to quantify the circumference and the thickness of the adipose tissue of waist, hips and thigh, and skin elasticity.

Subjects of the Study

The clinical-instrumental study was conducted on 20 healthy female subjects (aged 18-55 years old) who have localized adiposity.

Study Duration

The SLIMMING GEL Tummy, Hips, Buttocks cream was applied once a day, in the evening, with a gentle massage until completely absorbed. The evaluations under study were acquired prior to product application and at a distance of 15, 30 and 45 days of of continuous product use.

Monitoring Parameters

WAIST AND HIPS CIRCUMFERENCE
Waist and hips circumference was measured using a millimeter meter. The used instrument is the flexible meter.

SKIN ELASTICITY
The instrument used is the Cutometer®. The evaluation of skin elasticity is based on the suction / elongation method and the subsequent release of the skin inside of the meter probe. An optical detection system, evaluates then the reached depth by the skin within the probe in the two measuring stages. Data are then graphically and numerically processed in order to calculate the viscoelastic properties of the skin.

THICKNESS MEASUREMENT OF LOCALIZED ADIPOSITY
Subcutaneous fat thickness measurement was carried out using a dedicated ultrasound probe. This measure is useful for an indication of the subcutaneous adipose tissue distribution. The used tool was the adipometro.

ORANGE PEEL SKIN
The presence of “orange peel” skin was evaluated by the dermatologist by visual examination and palpation of the affected areas and the improvement was classified in compliance with the standardized clinical scale.

SELF-ASSESSMENT
At the end of the study period, the subjects were asked to express their personal opinion (from 1 to 10) about the treatment with the product under study.

Conclusions

SLIMMING GEL Tummy, Hips, Buttocks cream had a positive effect in the treatment period on the evaluated parameters, in subjects undergoing study.

In particular the product has determined:

  • a decrease in the circumference of the waist and hips;
  • a reduction of the adipose tissue at waist and hips level;
  • an improvement in skin elasticity;

The product was judged well tolerated, effective and pleasant to use.
