Cellulite Reduction with Cryotherapy
According to statistics, over 80% of women suffer from cellulite, and until now there hasn’t been much of a solution. Modern technology provides us with the answer – cryotherapy. It has been found that low temperatures have a positive affect on the skin, and overall body condition as a whole.
In the U.S., cellulite-reduction treatments and products became popular in the 1970s, but most were found to be questionable at best.
Fortunately, cellulite sufferers today don’t have to subject themselves to the myriad of ineffective (but not inexpensive) loofah sponges, horsehair mitts, massagers, rubber pants, body wraps and electrical muscle-stimulating belts of yesteryear.
How Can Cryotherapy Help with Reducing Cellulite?
Cryotherapy reduces fatty deposits by using extreme cold to constrict the blood vessels. This is achieved in a cryosauna, a therapeutic “bath” of liquid nitrogen steam that reaches between -250° and -350° Fahrenheit (-120° and 180° Celsius).
Due to the controlled low humidity, patients experience a pleasant cooling sensation, and they don’t feel the bone-chilling temperatures. After a cryotherapy treatment, the skin is not only refreshed and tightened, but also rejuvenated and more elastic because of collagen stimulation.
Cryotherapy is helpful in the treatment of many, many problems, from arthritis and fibromyalgia to psoriasis and acne, and lately has proven to be the best way to help regenerate skin cells after a skin peel or microdermabrasion. Cellulite reduction has now been added to the long list of cryotherapy’s proven benefits, and the sessions are quick, painless and affordable. If cellulite is, as many doctors call it, “fat gone wrong,” then contemporary cryotherapy is cellulite reduction done right.
