Brief Summary:
A Clinical Trial Evaluating Efficacy of a Skin Cream Targeting Dermal Fat in Improving the Skin Elasticity of Healthy Volunteers.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Atrophy, Hemifacial Elastosis Photoaging Other: Adipeau face cream Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
This is a single-arm study with subjects serving as their own controls. The study evaluates a face cream comprised of natural agents with adipogenic and lipolytic activities. The combination of adipogenic and lipolytic impulses is theorized to be more effective in promoting regeneration and healthy cell size in the dermal white adipose tissue than other approaches (e.g., adipogenic + lipogenic or anti-adipogenic + lipolytic). The health of the dermal white adipose tissue is reflected by the strength and elasticity of the skin and the distribution of volume in the face.
