Cellulite Treatment Options:
Testing Products

Before you use any new topical treatment, you should “test” the product on a small area of skin and give yourself sufficient time to observe any reactions.

You should also carefully read product labels and follow directions. If it contains an allergen that you already know affects you, obviously you won’t want to use that particular product.

People who suffer from asthma need to pay particular attention. “Aminophylline,” an approved prescription drug used in the treatment of asthma, is an ingredient used in many thigh cream products that marketers claim will dissolve the fat and smooth the skin.

Since some individuals suffer from allergic reactions to ethylenediamine, a component of aminophylline, there is some concern and these people may wish to avoid these products so that they don't develop a sensitization (become allergic) to aminophylline.

For these and other reasons the government argues that the majority of “topical agents and thigh creams” should be regulated as drugs. They further dispute the efficacy of these creams. As we said earlier, that isn’t our determination to make.

Some dermatologists and clinicians have a differing point of view. One such practice conducted an abstract study wherein they used a “double-blinded randomized trial.” This means that neither the clinicians conducting the test nor the subjects, knew which of a particular topical agent they were testing.

Twenty women with a moderate degree of cellulite on the buttocks and/or thighs were entered into a four-week, double-blinded, randomized trial where an anti-cellulite cream was applied to the affected sites on a nightly basis.

Some of them were randomly selected to use a neoprene garment on either leg. High quality digital photography was used to photograph them from different angles before and after four weeks of treatment.

17 of the subjects actually completed the study. Of those 17, 76% saw overall improvement in their cellulite. 54% reported even greater improvement on the thigh that used the special garment.

The dermatological evaluators found an improvement in 65% of treated legs with the garment and 59% of treated legs without the garment.

Further, the evaluators found the thighs using the garment showed greater improvement than those that did not in 65% of subjects. The topical agent used in this study was found to be effective in reducing the appearance of cellulite and the neoprene garment enhanced the effect of this topical agent in cellulite reduction.

The dermatological evaluators claim that the success of this study validates the garment used to enhance the topical agent used.

Your writer makes no claims as to the validity of the above test or the arguments set forth by the government. Both present valid points of view.

Also take note that we have no idea of the “brand names” of the products involved. Again, you might want to check the contents of any product you may be considering.
