If you have $6,000 to $12,000 to spare, you can look ageless like Fabio — and we’re not talking about plastic surgery.
Fabio Lanzoni appeared on the cover of hundreds of books in the ’80s and ’90s which made him famous, and he ended up riding the wave to TV and film appearances, spokesperson roles, and more.
In a new interview with People, he’s opening up about his life today—including the unexpected beauty tip he believes is “reversing the aging process.”
In his interview with People, Fabio revealed that he sleeps in a hyperbaric chamber, which he says “reverses the aging process.” The model did not share how frequently he does this, however.
According to the Mayo Clinic, “hyperbaric oxygen therapy involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized environment.” It can be used to treat many issues including severe anemia, carbon monoxide poisoning, decompression sickness, burns, and more. The therapy often lasts for about two hours.
“In a hyperbaric oxygen therapy chamber, the air pressure is increased two to three times higher than normal air pressure. Under these conditions, your lungs can gather much more oxygen than would be possible breathing pure oxygen at normal air pressure,” Mayo Clinic explains.
Fabio isn’t alone. In his docuseries Justin Bieber: Seasons, Justin Bieber said that he began sleeping in a hyperbaric chamber to help with managing his anxiety, even though that is not a known benefit of using one of the chambers. He explained that he kept one in his home and one in his music studio, as reported by Insider. NBA player LeBron James is also known to have used hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
People reports that Fabio avoids sweets, alcohol, and drugs, and works out all the time, so that may be why he still looks so good.
