Treatment against the imperfections of CELLULITE

Cellulite Cream

Aim of the Study

The study evaluated the efficacy of the product Treatment against the imperfections of CELLULITE assisting in the reduction of cellulite blemishes. For this purpose, it was examined whether the constant use of the product can positively affect the subcutaneous blood perfusion, skin problems (skin to “orange peel”, skin roughness) and common cellulite discomfort (pain at palpation).

Subjects of the Study

The clinical-instrumental study was conducted on 20 female subjects aged between 18 and 55 years old with with typical cellulite blemishes (thermographic stages from II to III).

Study Duration

The Treatment against the imperfections of CELLULITE cream was applied only 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 treatment.

Monitoring Parameters

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.

THIGH CIRCUMFERENCE
Thigh circumference was measured using a millimeter meter. The used instrument is the flexible meter.

SKIN TEMPERATURE (thermographic plates)
Thermographic assessments were acquired through the Cell Meter System Professional kit thermographic slabs. The variation of colors allows to assess the extent and severity of the skin microcirculatory damage and the consequent hypodermic damage according to district variations in skin temperature.

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

CELLULITE ENTITY
The cellulite entity was evaluated by a dermatologist using visual inspection, palpation and with the help of thermal sheets according to clinical scores.

SMOOTHNESS SKIN
The skin smoothness was evaluated by the dermatologist with visual inspection and palpation of the affected areas in accordance with standardized clinical scores.

PAIN AT PALPATION
The sensation of pain at palpation was evaluated by the dermatologist by palpation of the affected areas according to standardized clinical scores.

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.

Results

Skin Elasticity Evaluation

Graph 1

The use of the product has resulted in a statistically significant improvement in skin elasticity in all monitored experimental times (15, 30 and 45 days).

Evaluation of thighs reduction

Graph 2

The use of the product has resulted in a statistically significant reduction in thigh circumference in all monitored experimental times (15, 30 and 45 days).

Thermography evaluation

Graph 3

The clinical thermographic analysis has revealed a normalization of the skin microcirculation in 10%, in 45% and in 55% of subjects, respectively after 15, 30 and 45 days of treatment. This variation is associated with an improvement of cellulite blemishes.

Clinical evaluation – “ORANGE PEEL” SKIN

Graph 4 The improvement of “orange peel” skin was recorded in 30%, 50% and 80% of subjects, respectively, after 15, 30 and 45 days of treatment.

Clinical evaluation – PAIN AT PALPATION

Graph 5

The clinical analysis showed a reduction in pain on palpation. This improvement was recorded in 20%, 55% and 75% of subjects, respectively, after 15, 30 and 45 days of treatment.

Clinical evaluation – Skin Smoothness

Graph 6
The clinical analysis showed an improvement in skin smoothness. This improvement was recorded in 30%, 45% and 75% of subjects, respectively, after 15, 30 and 45 days of treatment.

Subjective evaluation (Self-evaluation)

Conclusions

The Treatment against the imperfections of CELLULITE cream had a positive effect, in the treatment period, on the evaluated parameters in subjects undergoing study.

In particular the product has determined:

  • an improvement in skin elasticity;
  • a normalization of the cutaneous microcirculation highlighted by the analysis of thermal contact;
  • a reduction of thigh circumference;
  • an aesthetic improvement of the skin appearance (smoothness) resulting in a reduction of the typical cellulite (orange peel appearance) and improving the sensation of pain felt by palpation of the affected area.

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