The heart of Slim UP® ULTRA is based on 6 sources of infrared lights with wave lengths selected which has the power to penetrate the skin barrier and to act at a depth which cellulite and fat cells gather. The Infrared lights raise the temperature in these areas and metabolise the fatty tissue and is consistently increased at a safe level for prolonged periods. This helps to get rid of fat cells and is eliminated by your own lymphatic system. Infrared also increase the basal metabolism by 14% each degree increase in your body temperature and increasing metabolic rate means it can burn off anywhere from 200 to 600 calories in a half-hour session.

The key to the dramatic improvements generated by infrared light therapy is nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is a short-lived gas that is crucial to the health of the arteries. This powerful signaling molecule relaxes the arteries, helps regulate blood pressure, fights free radicals, and discourages platelets from clumping together in the blood vessels. Infrared energy prompts the release of nitric oxide, which enhances blood flow in the immediate vicinity, bringing oxygen, nutrient for pain relief, visibly improved skin, and wellness.
No serious adverse effects have been reported with infrared, and this type of treatment seems to be safe for the majority of people, even those who can’t normally tolerate other types of saunas or heat treatments. Infrared light is the invisible part of natural sunlight that feels like heat when we are exposed to it. It’s completely safe (hospitals use it to warm newborns) and you can be exposed to it for hours since it does not have any harmful UV rays. Infrared wavelengths are luckily too long to be perceived by the eyes, so they don’t damage sensitive eye tissues like other light therapies can. Infrared light is also considered “gentle radiant heat,” so although it can penetrate up to 1.5 inches (almost four centimeters) beneath the skin, it isn’t painful and doesn’t cause a burning effect.
Contraindicated for those who have a fever, neoplasia or acute inflammation. Safe for all ages.
