BACKGROUND: Cellulite is a common aesthetic condition that affects almost every woman. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy of acoustic wave therapy (AWT) for cellulite and body shaping. METHODS: In this open-label, single-center trial, 30 women presenting moderate or severe cellulite underwent 12 sessions of AWT on the gluteus and back of the thighs, over 6 weeks. The following assessments were performed at baseline, and up to 12 weeks after treatment: Cellulite Severity Scale (CSS), body circumference measurements, subcutaneous fat thickness by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), quality of life related by Celluqol(®), and a satisfaction questionnaire...

Snake bite is an occupational hazard in India and important preventable cause of acute kidney injury (AKI). This study was done to estimate the magnitude of snakebite-induced AKI (SAKI) who required renal replacement therapy, prognostic predictors, and final outcome, and to measure the oxidative and carbonyl stress (CS) level in SAKI patient who underwent hemodialysis (HD). All SAKI patients dialyzed between April 2010 and July 2011 in NRS Medical College were included. Demographical, clinical, and biochemical data were analyzed, and patients are followed to discharge or death...

BACKGROUND: Our aim was to analyze the impact of intraperitoneal chemotherapy (IPC), administered with direct peritoneal puncture, on the survival of patients with pretreated ovarian cancer in a real-life setting. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This was a retrospective study comparing patients with advanced ovarian cancer treated with IPC (N=33) and patients treated with standard intravenous (i.v.) chemotherapy matching cases for known prognostic factors (age, platinum sensitivity, histological subgroup and grade)...

A 70 year old woman presented with a cellulitic reaction following Zostavax® injection. This reaction could be differentiated from bacterial cellulitis on the basis of the temporal relationship between vaccination and onset of the reaction, its non progression and unresponsiveness to antibiotic therapy. Alerting health care providers to this type of reaction, also seen with pneumococcal and pertussis containing vaccines, should avoid the inappropriate use of antibiotics.

The aim of the present work was to develop and evaluate the potential of nanostructured lipid carriers associated with caffeine extracted from Coffee Silverskin (NLC-CS), a food by-product, as a new possible topical therapy of cellulitis. Caffeine gain increasing research interest due to their cosmetic potential, particularly in gynoid lipodystrophy, commonly known as cellulite. NLC-CS were prepared via double emulsion technique using polysorbate 60 as surfactant and characterized for their morphology, particle size, zeta potential, association encapsulation and stability...

Fractional radiofrequency (FRF) is renowned for its use in cosmetic dermatology, with regard to the treatment of rhytides, striae, scarring and cellulite. We have systemically analysed its evidence for the use of FRF in acne scars. Our search identified 15 articles, one single-blinded randomised controlled trial, two split-face trials and thirteen prospective clinical studies, mostly single-centred. Case reports were excluded. In total 362 patients were treated. The longest follow-up was for 210 days, and on average the follow-up was for three months, varying between one and seven months...

BACKGROUND: Carbon dioxide therapy, better known as carboxytherapy, relates to percutaneous infusion of medical carbon dioxide with therapeutic approaches, and its use in the treatment of localized fat has demonstrated good results. Gynoid lipodystrophy, also known as cellulite, affects 80%-90% of women after puberty, especially in the buttocks and thighs. Its etiology is complex and involves multifactorial aspects. Its treatment and evaluation require the use of new technologies (more effective and low-cost approaches)...

BACKGROUND: Cellulite is one of the worst tolerated aesthetic imperfections. Edema that accompanies cellulite causes disorders of blood flow what may be observed as changes in the skin surface temperature. The aim of this paper was to develop a new method based on the analysis and processing of thermal images of the skin for biometric evaluation of severity of cellulite and monitoring its treatment. METHODS: The observations of the treatment effects were conducted on 10 females (33...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Non-invasive laser skin treatment modalities are generally designed to protect the epidermis by cooling and limiting the laser energy deposition in accordance with skin type. We explore a treatment modality that uses a 2,940 nm Er:YAG laser with high tissue absorption to ablate an array of channels through the epidermis and upper dermis, and then deliver laser energy from a 1,320 nm Nd:YAG laser with lower tissue absorption through the ablated channels. Treatment through ablated conduits offers a unique capability to deliver laser radiation to a deeper level in the dermis or beyond the dermis and the delivered energy to be deposited in a nearly uniform distribution...

Intermittent negative pressure devices were initially developed by NASA to enhance blood perfusion and combat a reduction in orthostatic tolerance. Investigational studies have demonstrated that the pressure differential produces changes in the blood and cardiac systems and also documented changes in weight and cellulite in obese patients. Although the mechanisms are not known, previous investigation has also reported changes in lymphedematous limbs. These initial results suggested to us that the inclusion of intermittent negative pressure into a lymphedema treatment protocol would be beneficial...

: Purpose/Aim: Ultrasound has demonstrated anti-inflammatory and pain-relief benefits in several conditions such as cellulite or trauma events. We assessed the efficacy of ultrasound therapy on nodules associated with first-line treatments in multiple sclerosis patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-two multiple sclerosis patients were enrolled during 2013 and randomized to two groups: in the control group patients were treated only with a conventional gel prescribed for cellulite and nodules, while in the experimental group the gel was combined with ultrasound therapy...

BACKGROUND: Patients increasingly seek to enhance the appearance of their legs. Elimination of unwanted leg veins, reduction of epidermal photo-aging changes such as solar lentigines and keratoses, tightening of skin laxity and reduction of adipose tissue are among the most commonly requested goals. Many patients require a combination approach to address their concerns. It is important for dermatologists to be aware of the multitude of procedures that can be performed, often in combination, to rejuvenate the leg...

A 67-year-old man presented with neck cellulitis following acupuncture for cervical spondylosis. Blood cultures were positive for methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus Increased neck pain and bacteraemia prompted MRI, which showed atlanto-axial septic arthritis without signs of infection of the tissues between the superficial cellulitic area and the atlanto-axial joint, thus making direct extension of infection unlikely. It is more likely that haematogenous spread of infection resulted in seeding in the atlanto-axial joint, with the proximity of the arthritis and acupuncture site being coincidental...

BACKGROUND: Treatment of cellulite using a 1440-nm YAG wavelength laser with side-firing fiber has proven safe and effective, lasting at least 6 months. OBJECTIVES: The authors evaluate the safety and efficacy of a single, subdermal procedure to treat the underlying structure of cellulite for at least 1 year. METHODS: Fifty-seven patients underwent a 3-step cellulite treatment with a 1440-nm Nd:YAG laser with a side-firing fiber and temperature-sensing cannula...

BACKGROUND: Bromelain is a mixture of proteolytic enzymes found in various tissues of the pineapple plant (Ananas comosus) and other species of Bromeliaceae. Owing to its proteolytic activity, bromelain has been used in the food, medical, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries, for its cell renewal, anti-ageing, whitening and anti-cellulite properties. OBJECTIVE: This study evaluated the stability of bromelain (commercial powder) incorporated in topical formulations...

In our experience, patients tend to consider any undesirable feature on their body from the knees to the umbilicus, and even the arms, to be cellulite. It is important to educate prospective patients that Cellfina (Uithera, Inc, Mesa, Arizona) most effectively treats dimple-type cellulite, whereby fibrous bands inserting into the undersurface of the skin cause a puckered appearance. In this brief communication, we would like to share our experience in optimizing outcomes with Cellfina for the treatment of cellulite...
