Taking care of our skin is not limited to just our faces—it extends to our entire body. With the summer weather in full swing, many of us are donning swimwear and lighter summer clothes, leading some people to be conscious of their cellulite, most commonly on their legs. Recent findings report that the global cellulite treatment market will experience growth of 9.48 per cent during the period 2023 to 2030, making this one of the most in-demand treatment areas currently.
ZO Skin Health is proud to introduce Body Smoothing Crème to its body care portfolio, which is clinically proven to give the skin a more contoured, toned and smooth appearance. This breakthrough product complements in-clinic body treatments to help maintain optimal results and to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
What is cellulite?
Cellulite occurs in the subcutaneous adipose tissue and presents itself as a dimpled or lumpy appearance of the skin, particularly in areas with a higher concentration of fat deposits, such as the thighs, buttocks, hips, and abdomen.
It arises when fat deposits push against the connective tissue beneath the skin, causing it to bulge and create a dimpled appearance. The causes of cellulite are believed to involve a combination of factors, such as hormonal changes, genetics, poor circulation or a sedentary lifestyle.
Cellulite affects approximately 90 per cent of women and some men, and despite common misconceptions, can affect people of all body types.
Whilst cellulite itself does not signify the risk of any serious health concerns, it can be a distressing cosmetic concern for many people, which may lead them to seek out treatments to reduce the visibility of it.
This body smoothing crème provides an instant firming benefit and visibly improves the appearance and texture of cellulite, whilst continually working to prevent the formation of new cellulite. It is ideal for use on the hips, thighs, buttocks, stomach and other areas of the body which are common areas of concern for cellulite, to help diminish its ‘orange peel’ appearance and provide a sliming and toning effect.
After 56 days of twicedaily use, Body Smoothing Crème demonstrated the following results in a third party, independent clinical study:
- 95 per cent of subjects saw improvement in the appearance of their body skin.
- 86 per cent of subjects said their skin was smoother.
- Statistically significant decrease in dimpling for smoother skin.
- Statistically significant reduction in cellulite.
Body Smoothing Crème contains a blend of breakthrough active ingredients to treat and prevent the visible signs of cellulite.
Plankton extract enhances cellular and tissue metabolism, providing a visible toning and firming effect. The multi-functional blend of caffeine, coenzyme A and carnitine
enhances metabolism to assist with the breakdown of fat tissue, whilst saccharide isomerate minimises the chance of new nightly fat deposits from accumulating by interrupting
the body’s natural circadian rhythms, whilst stimulating collagen production.
The addition of humectants glycerin and betaine maintain skin hydration and restore a healthy skin barrier.
