It is so important to understand which body wraps actually work and which ones don’t. Let’s start with the most popular types: Salt Solutions, Mineral Salt Wraps, Seaweed Wraps and Liquid Herbal Wraps. ALL these types of wraps promote toxins and water to come out through the pores internally to externally. Though there is a mild detoxification benefit, these processes dehydrate and age the skin by water loss! If there is an immediate weight loss after a wrap, this indicates that it is a water loss wrap. With a water loss wrap, you may be required to wear a rubber suit or booties to promote sweating. These wraps are generally messy, uncomfortable and the inches come back as you ingest liquids again to replace hydration. What about Clay Wraps? Clay wraps are also an internal to external detoxification, and act as a poultice to draw impurities from the skin. A dehydrating wrap tends to age the skin due to dehydration. There are always Thigh Creams and they are also available in stores. The main ingredient here is aminophyllin. This chemical is an asthma medication, which was formulated to shrink the mucous membranes so the patient could breathe. It does exactly the same externally, shrinking the cells of any moisture. This treatment is a water loss, dehydration, and the most damaging of all cellulite treatments, as it is putting a chemical into the body’s blood stream.
Lastly, there are Internal Cleansing Wraps. M’Lis Body Contour Wraps, for example, use herbal formulations which work externally to internally. This type of program aids in the removal of wastes that have become trapped in vulnerable parts of our bodies. It does not dehydrate and age the skin. It is by far the healthiest and most beneficial type of wrap. Research showed that because of this increased flow of both the lymphatic and the circulatory systems, the patient also experienced cleansing of the tissues. This, in turn, caused healthy inch loss.
The M’lis Professional Contour Wrap may be used in two ways: detoxification and lymphatic cleansing. This amazing wrap does both for the body. The contour body wrap helps to free and remove trapped waste in the connective tissue, eliminating internal disfiguring deposits and stimulate inch loss. Wraps are often sold in a series of treatments to maximize inch loss and cleansing. The contour cream helps stimulate the lymphatic circulation while the plastic wrap acts as an acupressure to push the lymphatic fluid up into the thoracic valve, circulating the toxins back into the blood stream to get filtered out through the liver and the kidneys, promoting permanent inch loss. This 60-90 minute process is not a water loss, as clients do not sweat, and does not contain chemicals or dehydrating ingredients. Clients may wear their own swimwear or a spa bra and panties (short swim trunks for men).
Because the body wrap has incredible instant inch loss results, it makes it the perfect thing to do for yourself before an event. However, when done in a series, maximum results are achieved. A series of three to six Body Contour Wraps are recommended, with four to seven days between each wrap. Many people who go on a diet or exercise plan to lose weight are afraid of losing too fast because they don’t want their skin to get loose and saggy. We recommend the M’lis Body Contour Wraps for every seven pounds that you lose, simply because your skin needs to be tightened and toned immediately. The wraps also get rid of toxins stored in the body, so you lose even more inches.
Wraps should never be performed on one who is pregnant, nursing or if one has not been in remission from cancer for two years or more. Also those on blood thinning medications such as Coumadin and those who suffer from seizures should not utilize body contouring products.
At home care is very important to maintain your inch loss and cellulite reduction. We recommend M’Lis Maintain – Anti-Cellulite Lotion. This rejuvenating lotion is intended or at-home use to continue the slimming benefits of a contour wrap, with a pleasant light cinnamon scent. The Maintain Anti-Cellulite Lotion increases circulation to cellulite-prone areas for greater inch loss and better long-term wrap results.
