While some might consider the experience of a full style body wrap as relaxing, many would dread the thought and consider it constricting and claustrophobic.? I am of the latter.? I have actually had a “full”? body wrap many years ago.? The idea was simple.? Wrap me up so much that I will sweat the water out and then be skinnier.? At the time that was fine.? It was exactly what I wanted.? I had an event to go to and the wrap did help me shrink down.? The thing was that two days later all that I had lost was back.? That was a bummer considering I had paid over $100 for the service not including the tip.
Target body wrapping is a much more happy process.? You can basically choose where you want the wrap to go.? Maybe you want your legs or arms? Whatever it is you can choose.? The wrap is usually no bigger than two feet long so depending on where you want to put it, you might be able to cut it down to the size you need.
With a detox wrap you aren’t supposed to sweat the water out.? You are supposed to absorb the product in to your body to begin flushing toxins from your fat cells and hopefully shrinking up. It’s true that using Saran wrap to keep the applicator in place is suggested, but don’t wrap tightly.? You do not want to sweat.? However, it does help if your pores are opened up, so try laying a hot towel over the area for a few minutes before you apply the applicator.
Is it permanent? In the sense that you won’t gain it back two days later, yes.? It’s not a water loss.? It is as permanent as any other weight loss method.? If you where to lose five pounds from dieting it’s only as permanent as you let it be.? Same with target wrapping.
Many salons offer detox wraps or you can also buy them for use in the privacy of your own home.
A few things to remember about Detox Body Wraps:
- You must drink lots of water to get the best results and detox your body.
- Most are a one time use.
- Many have a time and use limit as to how many you can use at a time and how often.
- They are typically cheaper than traditional full body wraps.
- They key is to get the product “in” to your system, not sweat anything out.
- Most result in inch loss not necessarily weight loss right away.
