Whole Body Cryotherapy Reduces Cellulite and Fights Ageing
We all want to feel and look our very best but finding the best, safest and quickest way isn’t easy with the myriad of treatments available. Imagine a method takes only 3 minutes per session and is affordable.
One of the most requested anti-ageing treatments by women is for the treatment of cellulite. Around 90% of women have it to some degree or another and it usually gets worse with age as hormonal changes affect tissue breakdown and collagen production. Topical products seem to be ineffective at removing it and diet and exercise can only slightly improve it. However, a new way to possibly reduce cellulite is with Whole Body Cryotherapy treatments.
Whole Body Cryotherapy was firstly developed in 1978 in Japan by Professor Toshiro Yamaguchi as a medical treatment for rheumatoid arthritis and since then it’s been refined and used for many health benefits including skin rejuvenation, cellulite, weight loss and anti-ageing treatments.
The reason Whole Body Cryotherapy may help you visibly reduce ageing and cellulite is that during your Cryotherapy treatment, the sudden exposure to extreme cold causes the blood vessels in the dermal layer of the skin to contract. As soon as you finish your treatment, your blood vessels then do the exact opposite – they dilate.
This process oxygenates the blood and healing enzymes and nutrients are delivered to every part of your body. The production of collagen is increased which improves elasticity and firmness of your skin and therefore reduces cellulite. The immune system is boosted and the lymphatic system moves toxins out of the body.
How Many Treatments Should You Have?
In order to achieve the maximum anti-ageing results with Cryotherapy, in addition to your healthy eating and exercise plan, it’s recommend that you book in for a minimum of 10 sessions within a 2-3 week period and it’s safe to have a Cryotherapy session every day. The reason for this is after your first few sessions, your increased metabolic rate tends to last longer between treatments and therefore the benefits are cumulative.
Cryotherapy will not only improve your appearance but the experience will make you feel fantastic. The additional rush of ‘feel good’ endorphins helps combat the ageing effects of fatigue leaving you feeling refreshed and exhilarated. You can feel like this for up to 8 hours after your 3 minute Cryotherapy treatment.
What Happens During a Cryotherapy Treatment?
With whole body Cryotherapy, the body is exposed to extremely low temperatures of −170°c for up to 3 minutes. During this time, the average skin temperature drops whilst the core body temperature remains unchanged. Once you are in the Cryosauna your head and neck area are not covered by the chamber and so are exposed to room air above the device. A fine chilled oxygen & nitrogen mist is then sprayed into the chamber in order to lower the temperature. You are never left alone. A trained therapist stays with you throughout your treatment and you can leave the chamber at any time you wish during the treatment.
