Appearance of Cellulite
Cellulite refers to superficial pockets of trapped fat, which cause uneven dimpling or “orange-peel” skin. It appears in 90 percent of post-adolescent women and is rarely seen in men. Common, but not exclusive, areas where cellulite is found are the buttocks, thighs, and the abdomen.
Contrary to popular belief, cellulite is not related to obesity, and the appearance of cellulite is not always reduced by weight loss. Because the far infrared radiant heat of a sauna warms three times as deep as conventional saunas, it is significantly more effective at reducing cellulite. There is a link between the slowing of metabolic rates and the storage of toxins in fat cells. Sauna use and far infrared heat increases heart rate and localized blood circulation, which essentially reverses the above-mentioned trends toward the accumulation of liquids in the fat cells to reduce the appearance of cellulite
