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.

Slimming Body Wrap

Losing weight is never easy but with a slimming body wrap you should be able to lose at least a little weight easily. Dieters do agree that a good exercise routine is necessary to lose weight. But along with exercise, it’s also necessary to carry out regular slimming body wrap procedures along with dieting to lose that stubborn weight.

Why do you need regular slimming body wraps?
We all know that exercise and dieting can help you lose weight. But what you don’t know is that even with the best exercise routine, you will eventually plateau in weight. That means, you will exercise away but there will be no more weight loss. This stubborn body weight can be lost with a slimming body wrap. In fact, most trainers will recommend the use of a sauna or slimming body wrap to help you lose those last few pounds that have stuck to your body. There are many slimming body wraps that are expressly designed to increase circulation and draw out toxins from your body as quickly as possible.

How are slimming body wraps applied and used?
The exact ingredients that are used in slimming body wraps will vary considerably. For example, some salon specialists will use algae wraps while others will use fruit based wraps to draw water out from the body. People who want to use the slimming body wraps will have to first consult with the salon technician. The salon technician will carry out a whole body exfoliation procedure to remove the superficial layers of dead skin. A full application of the pack is done. The patient is then wrapped from head to toe with the elastic bandages, followed by plastic wrap and finally with a thermal bandage. These bandages will draw out the water from the body and raise body heat to melt cellulite that is accumulated on different parts of the body. The packs may also contain essential oils and cosmetic compounds that will soothe the skin and increase skin tone. Results are usually seen immediately but doctors do recommend that you continue with an increased work out routine. This will ensure that the weight that was lost during the slimming body wrap will stay off.

What is the average cost of a slimming body wrap?
The average cost of a slimming body wrap will vary considerably. Body wraps usually cost anywhere from $100 to about $500 depending on the materials that was used. The cost may seem a little high but the procedure usually lasts for one hour. Some salons may also carry out a complete body exfoliation and shower followed by the slimming body wrap. After the slimming body wrap, the client is also massaged with body lotion and then allowed to relax for twenty minutes.
