The Complete Guide to Ionithermie Cellulite Reduction

Have you considered trying the Ionithermie Cellulite Reduction program whether for health reasons or to improve your body’s appearance?   If so, you are not alone.  Ionithermie cellulite reduction is becoming a popular trend these days, with over one million treatments conducted worldwide.  If this is something you’re thinking about, the following information may prove to be very useful indeed.  Here we have compiled a brief guide to Ionithermie Cellulite Reduction, including how the procedure works and the cost and frequency of the normal treatment sessions.

What is Ionithermie Cellulite Reduction?

The term Ionithermie describes a cellulite treatment offered around the world in spas, salons, and health clubs and occasionally in medical establishments.  To perform these treatments, therapists must first be trained in Ionithermie therapy and be certified by the Ionithermie Board.

Ionithermie was first invented over 30 years ago, in 1978, by Oliver Fouche, a French biochemist, who used scientific research to discover an effective way to reduce the amount and appearance of cellulite on the human body.  Since its inception, Ionithermie therapy has continued to rise in popularity around the world as a safe and effective treatment of excess and unsightly cellulite.

Proponents of Ionithermie treatment maintain that a single Ionithermie session is equivalent to 30 minutes of vigorous exercise, with the added benefit of smoothing the skin and improving its appearance.  Ionithermie has been known to radically reduce the appearance of cellulite by stretching and smoothing the skin, toning and firming lean muscles, and ridding the body of excess toxins and fluids.

When Ionithermie was being tested in clinical trials, the average client lost close to 5 inches of total body circumference after a single session, and their appearance with regard to the presence of cellulite, improved dramatically.  Ionithermie treatment can be performed on any part of the body, with best results showing up on areas such as thighs, arms, midsection, hips, knees, and the buttocks.

How Does Ionithermie Cellulite Reduction Work?

As stated above, Ionithermie Cellulite Reduction is a procedure performed by a trained, licensed Ionithermie therapist.

Once you choose the area of the body you would like the therapist to treat, he or she will first scrub the area thoroughly, usually with hot mitts.  This process helps to increase the circulation in this area—circulation to the skin and the cellulite—and helps to remove dead skin cells from the area to be treated.

The next step of the process, which may turn some people off, is the application of a purifying mask of algae, which may also contain other important skin treatment substances such as amino acids, seaweed, ivy, ribonucleic acid and vegetable extracts.  Once the mask is applied, it will be wrapped fairly tightly with a fabric of some kind, and then covered with a combination of thermal clay and more algae.

Now comes the fun part.  Once the clay has dried around the treated area, electrodes are attached to the clay mask along specific points, and the treated area receives two different types of electrical stimulation, administered through a handheld piece of machinery.  The first type of stimulation, Galvanic stimulation, is made up largely of both positive and negative ions which help to draw out the toxins from the body and allows the body to absorb the nutrients from the now-hardened clay mask.  The second type of stimulation, Faradic, prompts the muscle to continually contract.  This type of stimulation is to help the muscles in the body firm, thus improving the skin’s tone and appearance.

The clay used in the Ionithermie process is a great conduit for the electrical stimulation, and while there may be a small degree of minor discomfort—much as you would expect from a strenuous workout—the procedure is in no way painful.  If the discomfort becomes more than the client can bear, the therapist can adjust the degree of stimulation from the handheld device.

Once stimulation has been completed, the mask is carefully peeled away from the skin, being careful as to not cause abrasion, and a form of skin moisturizing lotion is applied to the treated area.  Side effects are minimal, with a reddening or irritation of the treated area being the number one complaint from clients.

Ionithermie Cellulite Reduction:  The Treatment Sessions

Generally, an Ionithermie session will last 35-40 minutes with prices ranging from $100 per session to $160.  For moderate cellulite reduction, the best results are often seen after 5 treatments, but for more serious cellulite it may take up to 10 sessions before the area is fully treated.
