TRY FIRE & ICE AT CHILL!
Cellulite. It is a dirty word. Between 80 – 90 percent of women get it while the percentage of men with cellulite is less than 10%. The exact cause of cellulite is not known but medical experts believe it is a combination of 7 factors:
- Poor circulation/lymphatic drainage/toxin accumulation
- Oxidative damage
- Collagen deterioration
- Fat accumulation
- Scar tissue formation
Thankfully Chill Cryotherapy has a solution to address ALL 7 of these risk factors for cellulite—so YOU can feel great about your gorgeous body!
For cellulite reduction, Chill Cryotherapy offers a two-step process called Fire & Ice. In our 7 years of being in business, we have 100s of clients who have reduced fat & cellulite all over their bodies using this 2 step protocol.
Fire and ice is a combination treatment that starts with heat therapy. At Chill we offer 2 types of heat therapy: full-specturm infrared sauna and full-spectrum infrared slim pod. Both of these treatments use infrared heat to directly increase the temperature of your fat tissue, leading to a huge calorie burn, metabolic boost AND fat tissue destruction! Chill infrared sauna is a 40 minute treatment while our Slim Pod is 30 minutes. Our slim pod also includes red light therapy which builds collagen in the skin….
The ice part of our fire & ice treatment is a 3 minute whole body cryotherapy treatment. Whole body cryotherapy involves exposing your (naked) body to temperatures between -121 to -220 F. Cryotherapy is colder than Mars!! Cryotherapy has many benefits including inflammation reduction, pain-relief and weight loss!! A single 3 minute whole body cryotherapy can burn up to 800 calories, boost metabolism and increase mental and physical energy!
So how does Fire & Ice help get rid of YOUR cellulite??
Let’s tackle each risk factor one at a time….
- Poor circulation/lymphatic drainage/toxin accumulation. Fire & ice improves circulation, lymphatic drainage and detoxifies toxins in the following ways. Our infrared sauna & slim pod improve blood & lymphy circulation by dilating blood & lymph vessels. After infrared therapy, cryotherapy works in the opposite way by vasoconstricting blood & lymph vessels. This contrast therapy creates a pumping action within the blood & lymph circulatory systems to not only improve circulation to but to also detoxify waste products and toxins. This vasodilation/vasoconstriction sequence improves Infrared heat is independently a well-known toxin-detoxifier as infrared heat penetrates fat cells and releases fat-soluble toxins to be detoxified through the blood & lymphatic systems.
- Inflammation: Infrared heat improves circulation which promotes healing of injuries, relieves inflammation and protects against oxidative stress. Whole body cryotherapy is extremely anti-inflammatory: cold exposure triggers strong biomechanical and biochemical responses in the body leading to a huge reduction in local and system-wide inflammation! The combination of infrared therapy with cryotherapy can significantly reduce inflammation throughout the body, including wherever cellulite is found—leading to a reduction in the appearance of cellulite!
- Oxidative damage: whole body cryotherapy specifically triggers a 200 – 300% increase in norepinephrine in the brain and in the body. Norepinephrine is clinically proven to reverse oxidative damage by working as a free-radical scavenger. Since oxidative damage is a cause of cellulite, whole body cryotherapy has significant potential to reduce cellulite through its stimulation of norepinephrine.
- Collagen deterioration: Numerous studies have shown that infrared heat can increase collagen & elastin in the skin, leading to visible improvement in skin texture and thickness! Additionally, cold temperature exposure as found in whole body cryotherapy reduces the collagen-degrading enzyme collagenase. So while infrared heat stimulates fibroblasts & collagen production in the skin, cryotherapy can halt the degradation of collage, leading to an improvement in cellulite!
- Fat accumulation: infrared sauna and infrared slim pod both burn up to 500 calories and increase metabolism. Whole body cryotherapy can burn up to 800 calories and boost metabolism. The combination of fire & ice can burn tons of calories AND boost metabolism leading to significant fat & weight loss with consistent usage.
- Glycation is caused by the presence of excess glucose in skin fibers. This excess glucose triggers an internal reaction in which sugar molecules adhere to collagen and elastin proteins, leading to their deterioration. Both infrared heat and cryotherapy stimulate new collagen production thus potentially reversing glycation and reducing cellulite!
- Scar tissue formation—there are many clinical studies showing that inflammation is the trigger for scar tissue formation. Reducing inflammation can not only reduce the formation of scar tissue, it can actually help degrade existing scar tissue! Since infrared heat therapy and cryotherapy are highly anti-inflammatory, they are also highly effective at reducing the appearance of cellulite by also reducing scar tissue!
Wonder why cellulite gets worse with age?? For women, as we age our estrogen levels drop which has a negative effect on blood vessels—leading to poor circulation. As mentioned above, poor circulation and toxin build up is believed to be a cause of cellulite. Older women can counteract this hormonal shift by including fire and ice in their daily or weekly self care. You don’t have to live with Cellulite! Chill Can Help!
