The Slim-n-Slick wrap is a body wrap that assists with drawing out toxins to promote inch loss and reduce bloating. This wrap should be worn for a minimum of 4 hours. The slim -n- slick wrap is good for those looking to work up a sweat, refine and tone the skin, and lose inches.
What is a Body Wrap?
A body wrap or also known as a ‘body cocoon’ or ‘body mask’ - is a spa treatment created to enhance the health, appearance, and the feeling of your skin. Just like a facial mask, a body mask is a thick paste or cream made from minerals, plants, fruits, oils, and other natural elements that detoxifies and firms your skin by drawing out impurities and absorbing excess oil. The idea is to raise your body temperature, which boosts circulation, opens pores, aids in extraction of dirt, toxins and helps the mask to better absorb into your skin.
What health and beauty benefits does a body wrap treatment provide?
The pampering experience of a body wrap can provide multiple benefits, depending on the type chosen:
1. Detoxification: Body wraps featuring detoxifying algae, seaweed, mud or clay can help rid the body of toxins through metabolic skin cell stimulation. As skin is your largest organ, detoxification of the epidermis can have a significant effect on your health and overall wellbeing.
2. Intensive moisturization: The vast majority of wraps comprise moisturizing ingredients to hydrate, nourish and smooth your skin for improved condition.
3. Relaxation: Once you’re fully wrapped, you’ll be left to relax for up to 30 minutes. This will provide you with some valuable - and rare - mental and physical downtime.
Body wraps are all the rage at spas these days -- you might have even seen billboards or TV commercials touting the miraculous slimming benefits of these treatments. Women arrive at the spa in the morning and leave an hour later, suddenly three dress sizes smaller and completely free of cellulite! Wraps are designed to improve the texture and appearance of the skin by helping to rid the body of excess fluids and toxins. Benefits of body wraps may include detoxification, boosting of the lymphatic system and metabolism, body contouring, temporary inch-loss, skin tightening, and skin softening.
What to expect during your treatment.
Although you should always visit www.kayelainesbeautybar.com to determine the exact details of your chosen body wrap, these are the steps typically followed:
STEP #1 - CLOTHING REMOVAL: Before your body wrap can begin, you will need to remove your clothing down to your underwear or a bikini.
STEP #2 - EXFOLIATION: All wraps begin with light dry brushing. This ancient technique involves brushing your skin with a natural bristle brush (synthetic materials can be too harsh) without any moisture or water. The brushing removes dead skin, boosts circulation, flushes out toxins and even improves the appearance of cellulite. We will start at your feet, working up your body and brushing in circular motions towards your heart, which encourages natural lymphatic flow, boosted immunity, enhanced collagen production, improved circulation, and balanced body fluids leaving you with smooth plump skin!
STEP #3 - FORMULA APPLICATION AND WRAPPING: We will then begin applying your chosen wrap formula to your body and limbs, wrapping each area in cloth or plastic film before moving to the next.
STEP #4 - RELAX: You’ll then be left alone to relax for up to half an hour to allow the treatment to work its magic. Alternatively, you may add on a mini facial or scalp massage for $25.
STEP #5 - UNWRAP AND RINSE: We will then unwrap your limbs one by one and remove your body mask with lightly scented warm towels.
STEP #7 - MOISTURIZATION: NOTE: This step is not offered with our tropical hydrating body wrap. At the end of your treatment, a final moisturizer or body oil will be applied to all areas of your skin to protect and soften.
