The following are our most common questions that we get about our Signature Mineral Body Wrap. Please feel free to Contact Us should you have any further questions.
Does the LA SlimWrap involve exercise?
Our System will reduce inches with or without exercise; however, the benefits of any level of exercise will increase your results. You can either choose to utilize your hour in the mineral body wrap being active or just relax in our massage chair and let our mineral solution and the wrapping technique do all the work for you. Our clients are happy in either of the wraps and it just depends on what they "feel" like doing that day, but we do notice a better inch loss is achieved with our mineral wrap as an active wrap.
To better enhance the results if you choose to relax while in the mineral wrap, then we suggest you do so in our infrared blanket instead of just our massage chair.
Does it involve dieting?
No dieting is required for inch loss; however, if you are using LA SlimWrap body wraps as part as your weight loss program, we recommend a body wrap after every 5 to 10 pound loss to help tighten up the skin.
How long does it take?
For your first body wrap session you will be with us for approximately 2 hours. The initial consultation, first measuring and wrapping will take about 30 minutes. An additional 45 to 60 minutes are spent in the wraps, and then unwrapping; a second measurement and dressing take approximately 15 minutes, followed by the reviewing the results from your first session. For our members and program holders, the body wrap should take approximately 1 ½ hours.
What should I wear to be wrapped?
In order to maximize the coverage of the Mineral SlimWrap, we suggest that women be wrapped in cotton undergarments, and men are required to wear underwear and gym shorts. You will be wrapped in warm, damp bandages, so be sure to bring an extra set of dry undergarments for after the wrap.
What should I do after the wrap?
The mineral body wrap process is still working in your body for at least 24 hours after your body wrap and provides your body the ability to continue inch loss and tissue reduction. For continued results, we suggest the following:
1. For continued inch loss, wear contouring clothes like a firm body shaper.
2. Since our process is removing toxins from your body, we encourage you to assist this process by avoiding toxic foods such as salt, sugar, alcohol, caffeine and carbonated beverages for several days following the wrap.
3. An internal cleanse, which includes drinking 8 to 10 glasses of water a day, will complete the detox process by flushing out the toxins.
4. We also recommend no hot showers for at least 8 (longer is better) hours and if using any lotions after your shower, to be sure to rub lotion in vigorously in your areas of concern. This will help circulation in those areas.
5. In addition, dry brushing your body prior to your showers will help to increase circulation and decrease
the appearance of cellulite; as well as exfoliate for smooth and firm skin.
We specialize in providing you with the absolute best body treatment products on the market today. We manufacture our body wrap products in the United States in an FDA approved lab with only FDA approved ingredients under strict USA manufacturing guidelines.
How do body wraps work?
Over time, as toxins begin to accumulate between the three layers of
fat. The accumulation of the toxins in the body causes poor circulation,
water retention and the body's natural elimination process becomes
weakened. As toxins accumulate between the fat cells, the skin begins
to take on an orange peel effect of cellulite as the fat cells expand to
accommodate trapped toxins.
Our body wraps use a detoxifying solution that is absorbed into the body, extracting toxins from between the fat cells, and restoring much needed nutrients to the body. As toxins are removed, empty pockets are formed and the compression of our advanced wrapping technique creates inch loss, nourishes, tightens and tones the skin.
What is the Ultimate Results Wrap?
The Ultimate Results Wrap is a two-part process. You are first placed in an infrared blanket, which promotes heating the body, stimulating the system, and opening the pores of the skin to better accept the body wrap solution. When you incorporate both the internal benefits of infrared and the external compression process with the mineral body wrap, the body's detoxification process is enhanced and this promotes inch loss and weight loss.
Is this just a temporary water loss?
No! The LA SlimWrap contour wrap is a firming and toning process that produces results by detoxifying and contouring the flesh; therefore, you will lose inches not pounds. We recommend drinking 8 to 10 glasses of water a day, especially on the days following each wrap to continue the detoxification process through the body's natural elimination system. Flushing your system this way will even aid weight loss.
How often can I get a body wrap?
The body wrap is a safe and effective process that may be done as often as you wish. For inch loss results, we have found that a series of 6 to 12 wraps-performed at least 3 days apart--gives most clients the full benefit of the process.
If you are losing weight, a continuing series of treatments will show results and help tighten the skin to your new shape. Most of our clients on a weight loss journey come to see us every 5 to 10 lb. loss in order to keep their skin tight as they lose the weight.
Many people are happy after just one wrap, and others return monthly to maintain their results and to keep the skin soft and supple; while others see us once every change of season.
How long does it last?
As long as you maintain your weight (or lose weight), the lost inches will stay off for at least 2-3 months. Bear in mind that in every day life we continue to take in toxins through chemicals and preservatives absorbed daily through the air we breathe, the foods and drinks we consume, and the products we use on our bodies. As previously noted, the solution is removing toxins, so introducing toxic substances back into your body could reverse the effects.
During your post-consultation we give instructions to help maintain and lose additional inches lost. We recommend reducing the amounts of salt, sugar, fried foods, alcohol, caffeine and other highly toxic foods. Regular exercise will also help to improve your circulation aiding in the lymphatic system to rid the body of toxins; thereby, prolonging your body wrap results.
How many inches will I lose?
Depending upon body type (the proportion of soft tissue to muscle mass), most clients average an 8 to 10 inch loss on their first wrap, and about half as much on the second and third wraps. Many customers have body wraps for skin tightening and cellulite reduction, which does not involve inch loss, while others seek the therapeutic benefits of detoxification.
Will wraps help Lap Band/Gastric Bypass patients tighten and tone excess and loose skin?
Body Wraps are the perfect partner for gastric bypass or lap band patients who are losing weight drastically. Losing weight causes a breakdown of fat, releasing more toxins within the soft tissues, frequently resulting in loose, flabby-looking flesh. The detoxifying and sculpturing wrap will firm
and tighten the flesh, showing the full benefits of your weight loss. We recommend a wrap after every 5 lb. loss.
Which body wrap formula is most popular with your celebrity clientele?
Our clientele, celebrities as well, prefer the results of the active LA SlimWrap Signature Mineral Body Wrap. Although they may use the infrared blanket prior to the wrap or even enjoy the mineral wrap while relaxing in the infrared blanket, being active after the infrared treatment in the wrap will always give the best possible results.
Why does LA SlimWrap offer so many different types of wraps?
Our Signature Body Wrap is the LA SlimWrap Mineral Body Wrap. When you call to schedule a body wrap, you will be scheduling the active mineral compression wrap unless otherwise specified. Our Signature Mineral Body Wrap can be enjoyed as either an active wrap or a relaxation wrap. If requesting it as a relaxation wrap, you will then have a choice of spending the 45 minutes in our comfortable massage chair or in our infrared blanket.
LA SlimWrap body wraps and treatments appeal to different people at different times or even the same person at different times. Everyone has the same desire and need to want to feel good and look their best; however, everyone has their preference about how and what they will use to achieve those goals. There are definite differences in the products we use, such as our Signature mineral solution, aloe/herbal, clay or infrared; each with a specific purpose. Because we offer our body wraps as an active wrap and a relaxation wrap, there is a choice for everyone.
