Why Caffeine in Perricone Cream for the Body?

You know caffeine is good for waking you up, but do you know its other benefits?

Dr. Perricone has included caffeine in one of his newest products, Cold Plasma Body, coming soon, so knowing its benefits is important when considering the efficacy of his latest product.

Read on to learn how caffeine helps the skin.

What Can Caffeine Do for the Skin?

Caffeine is put in some cellulite creams to help reduce the appearance of cellulite. Before getting into detail of what caffeine does, it’s important to understand what cellulite is.

What is cellulite?

You may know what cellulite looks like; it’s the lumpy substance that resembles cottage thighs, buttocks, and stomach. But why does cellulite appear the way it does?

Cellulite forms from collections of fat that push against connective tissue underneath your skin. These collections cause the surface of skin to dimple or pucker and look lumpy like cottage cheese. Most women (about 90 percent) and some men have cellulite, and even the most slender people can have cellulite.

Try Perricone for as little at $10.

The factors that influence the amount and visibility of cellulite include a person’s:

  • Genes
  • Gender
  • Amount of body fat
  • Age
  • Skin thickness

How to conquer cellulite

For the most permanent results, the best thing to do is decrease excess body fat, combining aerobic and strength training exercises. Adjusting your diet is also essential in achieving lasting results.

However, for a temporary, immediate solution, Perricone cream with caffeine can help. Caffeine can reduce fat and tighten blood vessels to help reduce the appearance of cellulite.

How Caffeine Helps in Perricone Cream

Cold Plasma Body is formulated with concentrated levels of caffeine.

Topical application of caffeine can reduce fat content in cells because it can enhance fat metabolism and reduce the swelling that you get around fat, resulting in smoother looking skin. It enhances fat metabolism by blocking phosphodiesterase, an enzyme that inhibits fat breakdown.

Caffeine also helps reduce the appearance of cellulite because it works to tighten blood vessels, which can lead to tighter skin. Tightening the skin can temporarily make your skin look smoother.

About Perricone Cold Plasma Body

While 82% saw improvement in cellulite or dimpled skin on their thighs in clinical trials of Perricone Cold Plasma Body, the Perricone cream does more than help reduce the appearance of cellulite.

It also helps to:

  • Give arms and legs a beautiful defined and contoured appearance with DMAE
  • Tighten and tone the appearance of skin all over the body with DMAE
  • Provide essential hydration to keep skin feeling soft and looking radiant with Sodium Hyaluronate

With all of these benefits, Perricone Cold Plasma Body cream is different from other lotions that help reduce the appearance of cellulite.

  14. Would love to test this product. I am a very athletic & lean woman in my 40′s who really never had a problem with cellulite when I was younger…..even during times of carrying extra weight. It seems as if the skin on my legs is quitting on me a bit and as a result am presenting with dimpling and uneveness on my thighs and above the knees even though I have a toned muscular base.

    Thanks for considering me.
