Benefit of a topical slimming cream in conjunction with dietary advice.
Bottom Line: Control of food intake improved the cellulite score after 4 weeks when compared with the base value, but this reduction was significantly greater and earlier on the treated side than on the untreated side, indicating an objective additional benefit derived from the new slimming cream.This result corroborated the slimming effect assessed by measurement in centimetres of the circumference of the upper thighs and the reconstructed volume of the thigh between two fixed horizontal slices.Furthermore, skin tonicity, a major component of cellulite visibility, was also significantly improved on the treated side after only 2 weeks.

Mentions: When compared with the baseline values, the clinical score showed a significant decrease over time only on the treated side at T2W, with a significantly higher reduction between T0 and T2W for the topically treated side than for the untreated side (P < 0.001). At T4W, there was a reduction in the clinical score on both sides vs. baseline values, but this reduction was statistically greater on the topically treated side than on the untreated side (P = 0.006) (Fig. 1). This means that the dietary advice contributed a slight but significant benefit to the cellulite score, whereas on the topically treated side an additional beneficial effect on the ‘orange peel’ visibility was obtained.
