Cryotherapy for Cellulite Reduction
If you’re a female who struggles with ugly cellulite, you’re not alone. In fact, about 95 percent of American women have this problem. Although there wasn’t much that could be done about reducing cellulite until recently, thanks to cryotherapy treatments, you don’t have to settle for unsightly cellulite.
As this type of therapy is relatively new, perhaps you may not be familiar with it. Cryotherapy is a noninvasive treatment that entails using exceptionally low sub-freezing temperatures for destroying abnormal cells. Originally, it was intended for treating benign skin growths, but today it is used on malignant growths, as well as internally.
How it Works: Cryotherapy for Cellulite Reduction
Cellulite is the result of subcutaneous fat deposits, mainly found in the hips, thighs and belly. By using below-freezing temperatures, the process is designed to destroy fatty deposits, which results in reshaping the contour of the body.
If the thought of frigid temperatures sends a chill through your spine, take heart. The treatments are actually comfortable and they make your skin feel pleasantly cooled, instead of frozen. This is because of controlled low humidity.
Following a treatment, your skin feels tightened, as well as refreshed and rejuvenated. What’s more, the stimulation of collagen gives your skin more elasticity.
It’s been proven that cryotherapy is the most successful method for helping skin cells to regenerate following microdermabrasions or skin peels.
Treatments are exceptionally brief, especially for whole-body cryotherapy, which only lasts for one to four minutes.
Besides being quick and pain-free, treatments are also very affordable.
During the entire process, you will continue to stay in contact with your therapist. Also, the treatment can be stopped, regardless of the reason or the length of time.
Doctors take extreme safety measures so that your treatment will be positive.
Your therapist or doctor will give you detailed instructions, following a treatment.
Whole body cryotherapy is not for everyone, such as pregnant women, people with severe high blood pressure, and patients with heart problems and other health conditions.
If you’re under 18 years of age, you’ll need to have parental consent to receive a treatment.
If there are any risks, it’s probably the possibility of an infection or that a treatment won’t entirely get rid of bad cells.
Besides treating cellulite, cryotherapy is also effective for several other health problems, such as arthritis, fibromyalgia and skin problems as acne and psoriasis.
