Breast enhancement creams are an alternative to getting breast enlargement or lifting surgery. These creams claim to do everything a surgeon can, but what they are, what is in them, how to use them and what they really do can be hard to figure out. Before you make a potentially expensive investment, use this information to help you decide if a cream is worth your while.
Breast enhancement creams contain chemicals and herbs that the manufacturers claim will help boost, enlarge or tighten the breast tissue and/or skin. These creams usually come in jars and are sold on the Internet, on television or in stores.
The ingredients in breast enhancement creams vary depending on what brand it is. Many creams contain ingredients that are said to stimulate estrogen production or imitate estrogen. This is because estrogen has positive effects on breast tissue. Some brands, such as Perfect Woman Breast Enlargement cream, contain mastogenic herbs that the producer claims will stimulate the body’s growth hormones to simulate puberty. Other creams, such as Shere Breast Cream, contain Pueraria extract and Phytoestrogens. Pueraria is a plant grown in Thailand that is said to mimic estrogen in the body. Phytoestrogens are hormones that increase blood flow and estrogen in the breast to make the breast larger.
Breast creams are used much like lotion. A prescribed amount is rubbed into the skin on the breasts until it is absorbed. This may be repeated several times a day, depending on the cream.
According to manufacturers, it can take from 2 weeks to 2 months for results to be achieved with breast creams.
According to review sites such as Breast Enhancement Guide, up to 98% of consumers are happy with the effectiveness of their chosen cream. Other sites such as Breast Enhancement Reviews show that consumers they dealt with rated the same creams very poorly. Either way, there have been no studies that prove conclusively that breast creams work. According to the National Research Center for Women & Families, products that claim to enlarge breasts are a scam and should be avoided.
The FDA does not regulate breast enhancement creams because they are considered beauty products. The ingredients used in these products can be potentially harmful since the ingredients are absorbed through the skin. Consult your doctor before using any type of treatment to enhance your body.
