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.

The COLD Hard Facts About Cryotherapy and Weight Loss

It seems like something out of a futuristic Sci-Fi movie… Stripping down to the bare essentials and jumping into a chamber that will basically freeze the surface of your skin, all in the name of weight loss. However, there’s a reason that Cryotherapy is fast becoming the go-to treatment for star athletes and celebrities all over the world.

Whole Body Cryotherapy works by passing liquid nitrogen vapor over the skin, causing the surface temperature to drop dramatically. This triggers an immune response in the body resulting in reduced inflammation, decreased pain and an increase in metabolism, something that could help with your weight loss goals.

That’s right, Whole Body Cryotherapy can be a fantastic calorie burner. After a 3-minute Cryotherapy session, your body will burn up to 800 calories, that’s the equivalent of 45 minutes of rigorous cycling! However, it should be noted that sessions of Whole Body Cryotherapy alone won’t make you lose weight. These treatments should be used as an aid in weight loss, to be used alongside a healthy diet and exercise regime.

So, how does it work? Due to the freezing cold nitrogen vapor, your brain triggers your body’s survival mode. This results in the secretion of adrenaline and an increase in blood and oxygen to your skins surface, causing a boost in immunity, rapid cell renewal and an increase in metabolism. As your body is tricked into thinking it’s beginning to freeze, it will start breaking down that stubborn brown fat in order to raise your core temperature. Using a large amount of energy like this to heat up the body is what burns those pesky calories.

Following your treatment, for around 8 hours, your body will keep on burning around 2000−3300 Kilojoules of energy. So you can see why, in conjunction with a healthy diet and active lifestyle, Cryotherapy can help you with your weight loss goals.

Not only will Whole Body Cryotherapy assist in burning extra calories, but it will also improve sleep and boost your energy, leaving you in the best possible mindset to do your usual exercise routine. Also, while working out, our bodies can become tired and even injured. As Whole Body Cryotherapy decreases inflammation and pain caused by sports and rigorous exercise, it can help get you back to your workout much quicker, and make those rest days so much more beneficial.

BUT! …..

If you’re looking for the magic bullet to miraculously lose weight – then CRYOTHERAPY IS NOT FOR YOU!  Some Cryotherapy clinics (rather, some general clinics too) are making pretty astounding claims that you’ll lose weight through Cryotherapy and their modality.
