Butler plastic surgeons offer a warm way to re-contour and detoxify your body using the first FDA approved, non-invasive solution for body contouring and cellulite reduction—The VelaShape II. At Advanced Liposuction Center, we offer this revolutionary technology which uses infrared light energy, bi-polar radiofrequency and mechanical and vacuum massage. Vacuum rollers provide a smooth, mechanical massage of the skin, safely and efficiently delivering heat energy for a quick, effective treatment with virtually no downtime. Body wraps are safe for all skin types and colors with no negative health effects.
What Can You Expect?
With our infrared body wraps, you’ll see smoother, tighter skin and a slimmer appearance, all without surgery. This procedure is painless. Most patients experience a warm sensation for the first few hours following a treatment and in some cases the skin may also appear red during that time. With our recommended 3 to 6 treatments (spaced 3 to 7 days apart), you’ll find that your clothes are looser and many patients see a total circumference reduction of 3 inches or more. Cellulite will also be minimized. Body wraps are also great to help with post-baby bounce back. Patients will see full results within 6 to 8 weeks of treatments. For longer lasting effects of body wraps, it is recommended that patients eat a well balanced diet and exercise at least 3 times a week.
In addition to a newly sculpted, more toned body, body wraps provided other benefits. They also help detoxify your system, ridding your body of potentially harmful impurities. Some of the conditions that body wraps are shown to help with include: Fibromyalgia, arthritis, eczema, soft tissue injuries, neurodermatitis and menstrual pain.
Here are some of the most common questions asked about Body wraps
Can you get rid of cellulite using a body wrap?
With women, cellulite is a prevalent issue. The higher skin layers’ tenacious fat cells are challenging to eliminate. Cellulite is defined as the retention of fluid and the expansion of certain fat cells in the connective tissues of the upper layers of the skin. Cellulite develops as a result of toxins building up and fluid retention due to impaired circulation. Cellulite is less noticeable thanks to the body wrap technique, which also tightens pores and detoxifies the skin’s layers.
Can I Get A Body Wrap After A Cancer Treatment?
No and yes. It is not advised that you get a body wrap if you have received cancer treatment within the last two years (due to toxins being stirred up in the circulatory system). One may get a body wrap with their doctor’s approval after being cancer-free for more than two years.
Should I Avoid Body Wraps When Pregnant?
No. Toxins are stirred up in the body during pregnancy, thus we would always recommend waiting to utilize any products that are detoxifying to the body.
How many body wraps would it take for me to see results?
Many individuals only wrap when they want to lose inches right away, and it works great for those special times as well as for fast, noticeable results. A series of wraps is advised for even greater results.
The amount of cellulite that has developed, the percentage of body fat you are attempting to decrease, and your skin type will all influence how often you should wrap.
Once or twice a week until you attain your goals, we advise wrapping. Do a body wrap once a month to maintain the results and for detoxifying purposes.
