FIT Bodywrap® can elevate your clients’ beauty routine and skin care upkeep. Health and wellness benefits from FIT Bodywrap are centered on weight loss, detoxification, relaxation and pain relief. As it turns out, beauty also comes to those who body wrap. A FIT regime can help regenerate the skin, fight wrinkles, normalize digestive and metabolic control, and protect the skin from sun exposure. Infrared heat therapy, such as that in FIT Bodywrap, can contribute to proper skin care that is essential to maintaining the health and vitality of one’s skin.
FIT Bodywrap® Clinical Director Dr. Flickstein explores skin beautification with FIT Bodywrap and how infrared heat therapy can provide results for clients such as healthy, glowing skin.
One of FIT Bodywrap®’s key beautifying benefits includes skin regeneration, the process of replacing old skin with new skin. Studies suggest that far infrared light, such as that in FIT Bodywrap, helps rapidly promotethe regeneration of skin and blood tissue (from “Reversing the Aging Process – an Enlightened Doctor’s Discovery”, ©1999 by Dr. Fouad I. Ghaly, M.D.). The regeneration of skin can also be attributed to an increase of 155%-171% of human cell growth after the application of infrared light (Whelan et al., 2001).
The far infrared heat in FIT Bodywrap® promotes the rebuilding of injured tissue, such as skin insulted by weather, sun exposure and other external elements. Infrared heat therapy also increases the growth of cells and the rate of DNA and protein synthesis necessary during tissue repair and regeneration.
Fight Wrinkles, Spotting, and Sagging Skin
According to European Beauty Specialists, infrared heat generated by FIT Bodywrap® can help speed any anti-cellulite program. Infrared thermotherapy, such as that in FIT Bodywrap, can also improve the condition of the skin through increased metabolism, oxygenation of tissue and increased blood flow that can delay the effects of photoaging. Photoaging represents the changes in the skin that accompany the changes associated with chronological aging, such as wrinkles of skin, uneven pigmentation, loss of skin elasticity and disturbance of skin barrier functions (Yaar, 2006).
Normalize Digestive and Metabolic Control to Beautify Skin
Expelling the usually hard-to-remove heavy metals and organic acids from stress overloads in sweat helps rebalance both digestion and metabolismthat can adversely impact skin beauty (Yamazaki). Far infrared heat in FIT Bodywrap® can speed cellular metabolic rates by stimulating the activity of mitochondria, and triggering enzyme activity. Normalizing digestive and metabolic control can help with the health and appearance of the skin.
Protection from Sun Exposure
Several further studies have concluded that infrared radiation provides resistance to UV-induced cell damage from over-exposure.It works via reduction of DNA damage and an increased production of proteins that protect stressed cells enough to prevent their death from UV over-exposures. (Jantschitsch et al., 2008, p. 1271).
According to the Clayton’s Electrotherapy, 9th Edition, Far infrared radiation, such as that in FIT Bodywrap®, is the only antidote to sunburn from too much ultraviolet radiation (UV).
Efficient skin care and healthy lifestyle choices can help prevent aging effects and repair skin damage. Infrared heat therapy, such as that in FIT Bodywrap, can help clients keep their skin glowing and rejuvenated all year long. After all, the skin is the body’s largest organ, and it should appear, as nature intended it, to be beautiful and in good health.
