At Advance Liposuction Center our Beaver, PA plastic surgeons want clients to know that infrared body wraps not only make you look good, they can make you feel good as well. Our medical grade body contour technology targets specific body areas, resulting in a slimmer appearance. Infrared body wraps are a non-invasive way to get rid of unwanted fat. They work by stimulating fat cells and releasing fatty acids in a natural waste-removing course. Several inches can be lost in a 50-60 minute treatment session. Proven results include tightening of loose skin, burning calories and promoting healthy collagen production.

This revolutionary treatment, however, goes beyond good looks. Infrared body wraps also help detoxify your system. They have been shown effective in helping to improve a number of medical issues, including:

  • Arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Soft tissue injury
  • Neurodermatitis
  • Menstrual pain
  • Muscle and joint stiffness
  • Eczema
  • Pain

Infrared body wraps can also be a great way to jumpstart a weight loss program.

What’s the Process?

We recommend 3 to 6 treatments (spaced about 3-7 days apart) for optimal results. It’s best to treat no more than 3 areas during one session because you will be releasing a flood of toxins. This treatment is safe and effective for all skin types and colors. There are no negative short or long-term health effects. Most patients find that the wraps feel like a warm, deep-tissue massage. The warm sensation may last for a few hours after your treatment and your skin may appear red during that time.


You’ll see a noticeable re-shaping of the treatment area in as little as 4 treatments. You will begin to notice that your clothes are looser and fit better. Gradually the surface of your skin will become smoother and you will see a visible reduction in cellulite. Although infrared wraps alone will bring a reduction in body fat, the best results will be seen when used in conjunction with a healthy diet and proper exercise routine.

Benefits of infrared body wraps?

Infrared body wraps are a type of spa treatment that involves wrapping the body in heated infrared blankets or using infrared saunas to deliver infrared heat to the body. These treatments are claimed to have various benefits for health and wellness. Here are some potential benefits of infrared body wraps:

Relaxation and stress relief: Infrared heat can help relax muscles, promote circulation, and release tension, which can contribute to a sense of relaxation and stress relief.

Detoxification: Sweating induced by the infrared heat can help open up pores and flush out toxins from the skin, potentially aiding in detoxification and improving skin health.

Weight loss: The increased body temperature during an infrared body wrap session may lead to increased heart rate and metabolic rate, potentially resulting in calorie burn and aiding in weight loss efforts.

Pain relief: Infrared heat has been claimed to help alleviate muscle and joint pain by improving blood flow, reducing inflammation, and promoting relaxation.

Improved skin health: The deep heat generated by infrared body wraps may promote collagen production, improve skin tone and texture, and help with conditions like cellulite and acne.

Improved circulation: Infrared heat can help dilate blood vessels, increase blood flow, and improve circulation, potentially benefiting cardiovascular health.

Enhanced exercise recovery: Infrared body wraps may help reduce muscle soreness and inflammation, and improve recovery after exercise or physical activity.

Are there any side effects of infrared body wraps?

While generally considered safe, potential side effects of infrared body wraps may include dehydration, overheating, skin irritation or burns, dizziness, fainting, and concerns during pregnancy. These side effects are rare, but it’s important to monitor your body’s response during the treatment, follow recommended guidelines, and communicate any discomfort or concerns to the spa therapist. Pregnant women should consult with their healthcare provider before undergoing infrared body wraps. Choosing a reputable spa or wellness center with trained therapists can help ensure safe and effective treatment.
