Sederma Introduces Anti-Cellulite Active

November 30, -0001

Sederma has developed Phytosonic, a product designed to combat hypertrophy of adipose tissue by acting on pre-adipocytes and mature adipocytes. The vegetal material is derived from the new anti-fat technologies of ultrasound cell lysis. It is able to selectively detach hypertrophied adipocytes without destroying them.

The properties of Phytosonic target slimming not only at the cellular level but also at tissue level, according to Sederma. In one study, 27 female volunteers applied a cream containing 3% Phytosonic morning and night for two months. The material reduced cellulite from 17 to 69%. The ultrasound measurements demonstrated a very significant decrease in adipose tissue thickness in the thigh and knee. The decreases were 8.5% (up to 18.6%) and 8.2% (up to 20%), respectively. Therefore, it resulted in a mean reduction in thigh circumference of 1cm and a reduction of up to 2cm vs. the untreated thigh.
