What is IONITHERMIE?

It's a non-invasive deep-tissue detox anti-cellulite treatment that is clinically proven to provide:
  • the immediate loss of up to 8 inches per treatment
  • the smoothing of the dimpled appearance of cellulite
  • the lifting and toning of the underlying muscles

How does it work?
Our licensed and certified therapist will prep your skin and apply all-natural, medical-grade products to your skin in the areas being treated. Next, a seaweed and algae-based body masque is applied to the treatment area. This conducts gentle stimuli from a hand-held machine into the deep layers of skin and tissue, causing the breakdown of fatty deposits and flushing the trapped fluids and toxins from the dermal layers where cellulite is present.


What is involved in receiving the treatment? What can I expect?
Step 1 Dry brushing of the skin in the area to be treated eliminates dead skin cells and increases circulation.
Step 2 Products with active ingredients are applied to the skin (products contain algae, kelp, ivy and protein).
Step 3 Warm natural clay infused with algae is applied and electrodes are placed on the clay in the treatment area.
Step 4 The machine is tumed on for 30 minutes. During this time gentle stimuli propel the active ingredients into the skin.
Step 5 The clay is removed and a cooling body lotion is applied. No shower is necessary.


How long does the treatment take?

The actual treatment takes about 35 minutes, but plan an hour for prep, product application and follow-up measurements.


How many inches will I lose?
This varies on an individual basis. Everyone is different, but most of our clients lose up to 8 measurable inches after the first treatment. Generally, greater inch-loss resuits are seen with greater amounts of cellulite, I.e., the more you have, the more you'll lose. Other benefrts include toning and smoothing of the skin as well as inch-loss.


How long do the results last? Are they permanent?
That depends on life-style and the amount of cellulite you have. The results are sustainable and long-term with the appropriate series of treatments and proper nutrition and exercise. There is no permanent treatment on the market. Even plastic surgery - such as liposuction - is not permanent, and the duration of results depends on lifestyle and individual body-type.


What does the treatment feel like? Does it hurt?
At the beginning of the treatment you will feel a slight prickly, tingling or vibrating sensation in the treatment area, which subsides as the muscles begin to contract in the treatment area. Your muscles will flex (contract) on and off for 30 minutes. Depending on your comfort level, your therapist can raise the stimulation intensity to maximize your results. The treatment does not hurt and your body will quickly become accustomed to the feeling of the treatment.


Is it safe? How long has this treatment been used?
Used as directed, the treatment is completely safe, and has been the number one cellulite treatment in France for over 30 years.


Can anybody have the treatment?
Yes - the treatment is safe for men and women of all ages - except for ·individuals with certain conditions (contraindications) which preclude them from having the treatment.

If I have a contraindicated condition and can't have the professional in-spa treatment, can I use the at-home (retail) products?


Definitely, the products are the same professional strength that is used during the treatment, except without the stimulation and penetration of the products. You won't see the immediate inch loss, but you will notice your skin looking and feeling smoother and toned.


Are the retail products necessary?
Yes they are, especially if you are doing a series of treatments. Most clients can not do back-to-back treatments, therefore the home care products help to maintain results in-between the treatments and speed up resuits. Clients need to use the products every day except for the days that they have a professional treatment.


How many treatments willi need?
Your therapist is trained to determine your cellulite condition, and will prescribe the appropriate number of treatments depending upon your body-type, amount of cellulite and response from your first treatment. Remember, cellulite is caused by a combination of issues that took time to develop ... so it can take a while to get rid of it. Generally, a series of between 5 and 15 treatments is recommended. With the correct number of treatments, plus execise and proper eating habits, the typical client can drop 2 clothing sizes in just several weeksl
