Cellulite Testing

Cellulite Reduction, Skin Smoothness, Scar Reduction, Orange Peel, and Tan Abatement

No matter how beautiful or fit an individual might be, everyone has something about their body that they wish could be improved in one way or another.

Validated Claim Support provides a number of different testing methodologies which can help demonstrate the efficacy of products designed to improve conditions in different areas of the body.

Cellulite Reduction Studies and Skin Smoothness

Cellulite is a very common physically harmless skin condition that can cause lumpy, dimpled flesh.  While most prevalent in women, cellulite can occur on anyone.  Cellulite is most common on the thighs, hips, buttocks, and abdomen.

In many cases, the appearance of cellulite can be improved through diet, exercise, and general weight loss, however that isn’t always the case.  Topical products are often formulated specifically to target the appearance of cellulite, and they contain a number of different formulas with varying degrees of efficacy.

There are also other causes of skin rippling and roughness which can be addressed with topical creams, gels, and treatments.

Let VCS help you custom design your next cellulite reduction study, and see what the power of Validated Clinical Photography can do for your brand.

Claim Support Validation Techniques

Claims can be supported by a combination of the following techniques:

  • Clinical Photography
  • Biophysical Instrumentation
  • Expert Clinical Grading
  • Subjective Questionnaires

Sample Cellulite Claims

  • Reduces the appearance of cellulite
  • Helps reduce orange peel
  • Smooths the skin in as little as 3 uses
  • Reduces the appearance of skin dimpling

Scar Reduction Studies and Wound Healing

The human body is extremely resilient, however sometimes the way it heals isn’t always pleasing to the eye.

Scars go through multiple phases of healing after surgery or traumatic injury.  Topical products can have a wide range of effects on these different phases from simply helping to keep the area moisturized through physically improving their appearance over time.

Scar Reduction Studies are generally going to end up supporting OTC or Drug claims, however there are products that don’t necessarily go the full FDA Monograph route.

Scars can be particularly stubborn, and no single treatment is best for everyone.  A combination of skin care, resurfacing, and continued sunscreen are generally recommended to help minimize the appearance of scars over time.

If you’re formulating or marketing a product for general body scars, acne scars, post inflammatory hyperpigmentation or wound healing in general, please contact our team to discuss the study variations we can design and implement.

Tan Abatement and Sunburn Treatment

Sunburns involve a reaction to UV radiation in which your skin gets inflamed, and can appear within a few hours to 24 hours post sun exposure.  In lighter skin types, sunburn is generally red, but it can occur no matter how dark an individual’s skin may be.

Trust Us on the Sunscreen

Without treatment, sunburn may take many days to fade.  Repeated UV exposure also increases the risk of long-term skin damage including dark spots, rough spots, and dry or wrinkled skin.  Repeated exposure is also known to dramatically increase the risk of many skin cancers.

Our team at VCS cannot stress the importance of sunscreen enough, but no matter how diligent people may be, there is always the risk of getting a bit too much sun.

Many known treatments for sunburn include soothing moisturizers and active ingredients with anti-inflammatory properties.

VCS can help substantiate the hydrating, soothing and healing properties of your sunburn treatments, and consumer use research and high resolution clinical photography will help demonstrate product efficacy.
