cellulite OVERVIEW

Cellulite is fat that collects in pockets just below the surface of the skin. It forms around the hips, thighs, and buttocks. Cellulite deposits cause the skin to look dimpled.  As fat cells increase, they push up against the skin. Tough, long connective cords pull down. This creates an uneven surface or dimpling, often referred to as cellulite. Cellulite is a very common, harmless skin condition that causes lumpy, dimpled flesh on the thighs, hips.


Skin aging is a gradual process that leads to wrinkle formation, laxity, and overall changes in skin appearance. In recent years, the demands to noninvasive treatments for skin rejuvenation increased, along with a variety of technologies and devices, such as microcurrent. The combination of red light/infrared light, microcurrrent and pulsed electromagnetic field therapy offfers the most effective results for long term appearance.

The purpose of this controlled, double‐blinded study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of a novel phosphatidylcholine‐based, cosmeceutical anti‐cellulite gel combined with a light‐emitting diode (LED) array at the wavelengths of red (660 nm) and near‐infrared (950 nm), designed to counter the possible mechanisms that purportedly accentuate the presence of thigh cellulite.  Nine healthy female volunteers with Grade II–III thigh cellulite were randomly treated twice daily with an active gel on one thigh and a placebo gel on the control thigh for 3 months. Twice weekly, each thigh was exposed for a 15‐minute treatment with LED light for a total of 24 treatments. At 0, 6, and 12 weeks of the study the following clinical determinants were obtained: standardized digital photography, height and weight measurements, standardized thigh circumference tape measurements, pinch testing, body mass index (kg/m2), body fat analysis, and digital high‐resolution ultrasound imaging of the dermal–adiposal border. In selected patients, full‐thickness biopsies of the placebo and active‐treated sites were obtained. At 18 months, repeat standardized digital photography, height and weight measurements, and body mass index measurements were obtained.  At the end of 3 months, eight of nine thighs treated with the phosphatidylcholine‐based, anti‐cellulite gel and LED treatments were downgraded to a lower cellulite grade by clinical examination, digital photography, and pinch test assessment.  The results of this small but well‐documented, randomized, double‐blinded study affirms that eight of nine thighs with Grade II–III cellulite responded positively to a novel, combined 3‐month treatment program of a phosphatidylcholine‐based, anti‐cellulite gel and LED exposure, as determined by the clinical determinants obtained.
