Body Wrap Frequently Asked Questions
How does “The Body Wrap” work?
Metabolic waste, chemicals, stress, medication and pollution in our environment overload body systems, causing water retention and soft spongy, cellulite-ridden tissue. The wrap is a procedure which includes wrapping the entire body in elastic bandages soaked with a natural mineral solution. During the one hour period, the client does light exercise to help maximize the results of the process.
How long does the appointment take?
Your first visit will take about 2 hours and 15 minutes. Repeat visits will take 1 1/2 hours to 2 hours.
How many inches will I lose?
It is impossible to predict exact inch loss because each person is different and may have specific goals in mind. Measurements are taken before and after your first wrap. We guarantee 10 to 30 inches your first visit! (6 to 20 for men) On average, first time clients will experience inch loss of approximately 12 to 18 inches their first BodyLift Body Wrap.
Is this wrap dehydrating?
No. In fact this wrap is considered to be hydrating. Our proprietary mineral solution is applied to the body using ace bandages. Once the bandages are applied, the distilled minerals solution is then absorbed through the skin creating a fluid exchange to leave you hydrated and energized.
How long do results last?
While it is not possible to predict exactly how long results will last, the average is for 2-6 months at a time, depending on factors such as age, diet, weight maintenance, metabolism, and lifestyle.
Do I need to do anything special before or after my visit?
No body lotions on your skin the day of your wrap. You will be wrapped in your undergarments. So make sure to wear cotton panties or a thong, a comfortable bra, doesn’t have to be cotton, can be under wire, just no sports bras or bathing suits. Sport bras tend to squish the bust line, we tone and firm, no decreasing! We ask that men wear dark coloured boxer briefs. Your undergarments will not be ruined in any way. Please bring an extra set so you don’t have to go home in wet undies! For the infrared, you will need to bring a towel and a bottle of water. If you normally eat around that time, have something in your stomach but not a big, heavy meal. It is an active wrap so we want you to be as comfortable as possible. After the wrap, we recommend you do not shower for several hours or until the next day if possible. There is no odor or residue from the wrap and you will be able to safely return to your daily activities. We also recommend drinking a lot of water and avoiding foods that are high in salt, sugar or other substances that are not healthy for the body.
How quickly will I see results?
You will see results immediately when you are unwrapped. The skin will appear tighter, cellulite will look smoother, stretch marks will be visibly reduced. The shape of the body may be visibly different and your clothes usually fit slightly differently when you change back into them. We recommend wearing or bringing a garment that fits tightly in your target areas, so that you can see the difference more easily.
Can the wrap help a double chin or round face?
Certainly! The Body Wrap includes wrapping the face. A certain amount of tightening is achieved on the face and under the chin. For clients who only want to slenderize facial appearance, or want extra results on the face without doing an entire body wrap, the Facial Wrap is recommended.
Will your Body Wraps help with the appearance of Cellulite?
Yes! Customers who specifically targeted cellulite-ridden areas for improvement reported a visible result after being wrapped just one time, and that cellulite continues to become less visible after repeated treatments.

How many wraps will I need?
The number of wraps is determined by what your goals are and how your body responds the wrap. To reduce specific body areas or cellulite, or to maximize inch loss, you should come in for a wrap once or twice a week, until your objectives are met. If you are dieting and exercising for weight loss, or have undergone a surgical procedure for weight reduction, it is recommended you come in for one Power Wrap for every 5 pounds you lose. Depending on the rate of your weight loss, this may be once a week up to once per month.
How frequently can I do a Suddenly Slender Wrap?
This process is safe enough to do 2-3 times in one day. Immediate goals, such as a wedding or another important dates, where you need to look your best, may be sped up through multiple wraps in one day.
Will I lose weight?
Inches, not pounds, is what our Body Wraps are designed for. We make no claims for weight loss. Weight loss type body wraps are just temporary water loss and results do not last like our detoxifying body wraps. As a matter of fact, you will see how your body is detoxifying by what is in your baggies. However, it is common for clients so lose weight the days following their wrap while their body continues to detoxify.
Are there any medical considerations?
Common sense dictates. If you are on medication or have a medical condition, you should obtain your doctor’s permission. Of course, the body wrap should not be done if you have any contagious condition, open wounds, or irritation of the skin caused by other beauty treatments, such as waxing, body scrubs, microdermabrasion, etc.
Is it ok to get a body wrap during my menstral cycle?
Absolutely, as some women feel it helps with bloating, water retention and the puffy feeling they experience during that time of month. It is best to wear a tampon but for those that can only use feminine pads, bring 1-2 extra pending on how heavy your flow it is that day.
