Body Wrap Weight Loss Procedures

In recent years, body wrap weight loss procedures have become very popular. Even Hollywood stars swear by body wrap weight loss procedures that take off a good few inches before red carpet events. Do these body wrap weight loss procedures actually work? Lets find out.

How Do Body Wrap Weight Loss Procedures Work?
Most body wrap weight loss procedures consist of several weight loss minerals, detoxification products and herbal slimming creams that are applied onto the body. These minerals are then held in close contact to the body to encourage flushing out of toxins, increase slimming and help in overall cellulite loss. The ingredients inside the mineral or herbal wraps can actually soak into skin and aid in better health. There are different types of body wrap weight loss procedures that are done. For example, you can choose a dehydration wrap. A special ingredient is wiped onto your body and heated plastic wraps, strips and even a thermal sheet is wrapped around your body to encourage the toxins to come out. As the toxins leak out, you lose water weight which results in an immediate weight loss. Apart from dehydration body wrap weight loss procedures, you can also choose toning, hydrating and tension body wrap weight loss procedures. Different body wrap weight loss procedures will rejuvenate the lymphatic drainage system of the body and help in weight loss. The result with these body wrap weight loss procedures is that you can see an immediate loss of fat and inches on different parts of the body.

What Are The Different Stages Of Body Wrap Weight Loss Procedures?
There are two different stages of body wrap weight loss procedures that work effectively to cause weight loss:

Exfoliation and absorption stage:
In the exfoliation stage, the spa technician massages the client’s body to remove extra skin. This increases the size of the skin pores and ensures that the body wrap weight loss minerals can work faster. After exfoliation, the client takes a bath and the salon technician then applies the mineral compound to the clients skin. A large range of mineral compounds are used in body wrap weight loss procedures and you can choose the compounds you want.

After the exfoliation and the application stage, the client is wrapped with a range of blankets. For example, most spas use plastic sheets. To encourage weight loss, thinner bandages may be used. The plastic sheets are covered with blankets and finally with a thermal blanket to raise the temperature. This increased body temperature acts like a sauna causing weight loss.

There are body wrap weight loss procedures that are done by spas and the actual minerals that are used will vary considerably. We suggest you get in touch with a trained technician to find the right procedure for your particular needs.
