Aminophylline Cream

Aminophylline cream is a weak solution of aminophylline in cream form that can be easily rubbed into the skin. It can be purchased without a prescription and is sold for the purpose of reducing fat and cellulite, particularly on the thighs. The Food and Drug Administration has not approved that use.

Cellulite

Cellulite is a condition in which skin has a "lumpy" appearance due to fat pockets.

Does Aminophilline Cream Work?

Study results are mixed, and some researchers and journalists have questioned the fat-reducing claims made by promoters of aminophylline creams. In any case, these creams do not reduce body fat as well as diet and exercise.

Where to Purchase

There are many brands on the market, and you can purchase the cream online, in drugstores or in department stores. It is often called "thigh cream" or, if sold as a bodybuilding aid, as "cutting gel."
