Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Investigator global aesthetic improvement scale assessment of the target cellulite area [ Time Frame: Day 90 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Subject global aesthetic improvement scale assessment of the target cellulite area [ Time Frame: Day 90 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   21 Years to 60 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Be a female and be ≥ 21 years of age and ≤ 60 years of age
  • Have a skin type classification of I through V according to the Fitzpatrick scale
  • Have EFP within the posterolateral thigh(s) and/or buttock(s) for at least 12 months before the screening visit
  • Have a photonumeric cellulite severity scale (CSS) score of ≥ 7 representing moderate to severe cellulite severity within the right or left buttock or the right or left posterolateral thigh (selected quadrant)
  • Have an area of EFP within the selected quadrant that is at least 8 cm x 10 cm (ie, target EFP area) and is suitable for treatment:

    • The target EFP area must be located on the posterolateral thigh or within the buttock and does not involve the gluteal fold
    • The target EFP area must be evident when the subject is standing, without the use of any manipulation such as skin pinching or muscle contraction (ie, CSS Classification E score of 2 or 3) at screening and before injection
  • Have a Body Mass Index (BMI) between 20.0 and 33.0 kg/m2, and intends to maintain stable body weight throughout the duration of the study (a variation of ≤5% from baseline body weight is permitted)
  • Be willing to refrain from using artificial tanning devices and lotions during the 2-week period before screening and throughout the duration of the study
  • Be willing to apply sunscreen with sun protection factor (SPF) ≥15 to the selected quadrant before each exposure to the sun while participating in the study (ie, screening through Day 90)
  • Be judged to be in good health, based upon the results of a medical history, physical examination, and laboratory profile at screening
