Inonithermie originates from France where it has been used to impact cellulite, improve muscle tone, and increase skin elasticity. Often times misspelled as Lonithermie, Ionothermie, Ionethermie, and Ionitherme, the treatment has enjoyed popularity in European Spas and Cruises due to its often immediate results. Ionithermie detox treatment works at the cellular level combating the hardened toxins that are contained in cellulite. These toxins are said to lead to problematic skin conditions in areas where cellulite tends to accumulate. In Ionithermie cellulite reduction, treatment is tailored to impact the accumulated toxins at a much deeper level than comparable treatments. Reaching deeper toxins is one of the many factors that draw individuals to Ionithermie Detox.
Ionithermie detox seeks to achieve five key outcomes:
- Minimize the appearance of cellulite.
- Improve and smooth the skin consistency.
- Slenderize and contour - Many patients may experience inch loss between 1-6 inches from their initial Ionithermie detox treatment.
- Firm & Tone - Ionithermie helps to tone and invigorate tired muscles and flatten the abdominal area.
- Detox - Ionithermie detoxifies the body while returning minerals that will increase both energy & metabolic function
Ionithermie works by using biological compounds in combination with an electrical stimulus. The biological compounds used vary but typically include mixtures of Guarana, RNA, Micronized Algae and conductive thermal clay. Micronized Algae is known for its ability to detoxify while improving metabolic function. So attached to the Ionithermie process, Micronized Algae is now commonly referred to as Ionithermie Algae and the process, Ionithermie Algae Detox. Like many sea-based ingredients Micronized Algae is rich in minerals which are factors in its application in Ionithermie. RNA (ribonucleic acid) enables the outer epidermal layers of the skin to renew and re-hydrate. The conductive and Thermal properties of the Aromatic Clay are the main factors that tie in the biological and stimulus components of Ionithermie. The increased effectiveness of Ionithermie is the result of the procedures ability to retain heat and pass on electrical stimulus.
The stimulant components of Ionithermie Detox consist of Galvanic and Faradic stimulation via specialized equipment. The Galvanic component uses positive and negative ions to propel the organic compounds in the skins area of treatment. This results in a treatment that is more effective in achieving the desired outcomes.
The Faradic component is one that has been employed by chiropractors and therapists to stimulate and restore both muscles and tissue. Its use in Ionithermie follows similar goals and is also desired for its ability to achieve spot slimming on the body.
The Les Complexes Biotechniques company of France has developed the compounds and technology that is most often used in the Ionithermie treatment. Most establishments that offer this treatment will perform it on Les Complexes Biotechniques equipment.
Those concerned with pain will be delighted to know that stimulating current from the Ionithermie treatment device has been described as relaxing
