Cellulite Cream - Can it Really Help?

Updated on January 4, 2013

Do These Products Really Work?

With the new year upon us, many of us are turning our attention towards the appearance of our bodies. Perhaps the indulgences of the holiday season have left you with a few extra pounds and yes, there is always that unattractive cellulite to worry about.

It's a common misconception that the cause of cellulite is simply overeating and poor diet choices. While those extra holiday treats may not have helped the situation, it's likely they did not create it either.

There are a number of potential causes including gender, hormones, diet, lifestyle, physiology, and personal metabolism. Cellulite by itself is not typically a health concern as it is found in average and underweight people as well as those who are over their ideal weight. The real concern is cosmetic as the dimpled and uneven appearance of the skin is downright ugly and embarrassing.

There are plenty of products and treatments on the market such as topical creams, drugs, and supplements that claim to reduce the appearance of cellulite and restore your smooth and youthful legs. Do these cellulite creams and treatments really work? Up until recently, none of these products have ever been scientifically shown to yield any kind of significant results.

New Science

New technology has led to some amazing new treatments and consumer products that could finally give hope to those who are looking to do away with those uneven lumps and bumps for good. One discovery that has grabbed headlines recently has been the use of stem cells to help the skin regenerate and renew itself.

One of the most talked about treatments is a topical serum called Leg Tone. It is produced by Adonia Organics and the manufacturer claims that it uses stable plant stem cells to stimulate circulation and help the body to release excess fat stores. This in turn leads to a reduction in the appearance of cellulite within a relatively short period.

Fact or fiction? The company cites an independent study performed by AMA Laboratories (a reputable cosmetic testing facility) which demonstrated that the product was able to reduce the appearance of cellulite in test participants by as much as 70% over a six-week period. That's pretty impressive! I wasn't the only one to take notice either, AOL recently published a story featuring this new cream in their well-respected health and beauty section (Stylist).

As these technologies continue to develop and become available to the public, it is likely that we will see a whole new generation of cellulite cream products that actually work. While these products will never be a substitute for healthy diet and lifestyle choices, they are sure to give us hope that when combined with responsible decision-making; those unsightly dimples don't have to stay with us for the rest of our lives.
