Banish Cellulite with Cryotherapy

If you struggle with stubborn cellulite don’t worry, you’re not alone. Over 80% of women suffer from cellulite, and getting rid of it has been an impossible task… until now!

Every year, women spend millions on lotions, potions, mitts, massagers, body wraps, muscle belts and even rubber pants in the fight against cellulite. However, none of these magical cures has actually proven themselves useful in the slightest.

But don’t worry, it’s not all doom and gloom. Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, you can now fight those annoying little dimples with Cryotherapy!

What is cellulite and how can Cryotherapy help?

Even though almost every woman you pass in the street will have cellulite somewhere on their body, not many people actually know what it is or what causes it. Those unwanted little bumps and dimples are actually caused thanks to a breakdown of collagen in the skin. Collagen is a connective tissue that keeps your skin looking smooth, elastic and young. However, when it breaks down, the skin becomes looser in some areas and tighter in others, causing that uneven skin texture we have all grown to hate.

Now, there’s good news and bad news about Collagen… The bad news is that we can’t do anything about it breaking down. Thanks to either genetics or age, collagen will ultimately break down no matter what you do, and there’s actually been no way to increase collagen in the skin (or anywhere else in the body for that matter). The good news? Whole Body Cryotherapy has been proven to not only repair the broken collagen connections in the skin but to also promote collagen production throughout the body!

The below-freezing temperatures the body is subjected to while in a Cryochamber causes the production of collagen, and in turn, gives back the skin’s elasticity and youthful smoothness, ultimately reducing cellulite. As an added bonus, collagen is also found in tendons, ligaments, bones, blood vessels, teeth and even your gastrointestinal tract, so full body cryotherapy can make your whole body stronger, more mobile and more youthful.

Another thing that can make cellulite appear more vividly is a thick underlying layer of fat. The more fatty tissue you have under the layer of skin showing cellulite, the more those pesky little dimples will show. Fortunately for us, Whole Body Cryotherapy also helps to reduce these fat deposits. Fat cells like these are completely intolerant to the cold. So, when you undergo 3 minutes of Cryotherapy, some of these cells can undergo apoptosis, effectively, cell suicide. The contents of these fat cells are then removed from the body through the lymphatic system, helping to reduce the visibility of cellulite.

But I Hate The COLD!

Ok, who here would enjoy standing in the middle of the Antarctic, surrounded by snow and ice, wearing only underwear? No one?… That’s what I thought. Humans are made to hate the cold. That’s why we keep inventing ways to keep warm. Fires, jumpers, duvets, insulation, coats, hats, gloves… they are all made to relieve us from the feeling of cold at all times.

So, you may be thinking, “Then why would anyone want to do a cold treatment like Cryotherapy?”. I understand your concerns and the line of your thinking, but Cryotherapy isn’t actually going to make your body cold. It only ever effects the skin’s surface temperature.

If it’s not cold, what is it?

During an ice bath, your body is exposed to freezing cold, iced water, that completely shocks your system and leaves you feeling frozen to the bone. Cryotherapy, on the other hand, is a completely dry treatment. At no point will freezing cold liquids be passed over your body. Whole Body Cryotherapy takes place inside a Cryochamber, where liquid nitrogen vapour is passed over your skin, only ever lowering the surface temperature of your skin, never your core temperature.

By simply lowering the skin’s surface temperature in this way, we trick the body to go into survival mode, without actually causing any damage to your cells whatsoever. Your body will begin pumping more blood and nutrients around your body, and any inflammation or pain you’re experiencing will be greatly reduced. During the Cryotherapy process, your body also produced endorphins, so you’ll actually leave the Cryochamber feeling happy and rejuvenated, not cold and miserable.

Another amazing thing about Whole Body Cryotherapy is that the Cryochamber process only takes 2-3 minutes. Your dedicated, licensed professional will be with you the whole time, talking you through the process and providing a distraction, so the treatment will be over before you can say “Brrr”.

On the other hand, other ‘cold’ treatments, such as ice baths or ice packs, can take much longer. To get even close to the benefits of Whole Body Cryotherapy using an ice bath, you would heave to sit in freezing cold water for up to 10 minutes… now that’s cold!

If you think that you can spare 2-3 minutes of your time to reduce pain, inflammation, swelling, and increase your metabolism and overall energy, then book your Cryotherapy treatment with us today HERE.
