Infrared heat has many different uses, despite being entirely invisible to the naked eye. Recently, many people have begun to enjoy the benefits of infrared light and heat for detoxification and fat-reduction purposes. This is known as infrared body wrapping.

What is Infrared Body Wrapping?
Infrared body wrapping is an aesthetic and detoxification treatment. This treatment can be administered by a technician. Infrared body wrapping utilizes special “wraps” that administer safe and painless amounts of infrared heat.
Infrared body wrapping has been used to treat:
- Excess cellulite
- Excess fat
- Muscle spasms
- Chronic pain
- Joint pain
- Dry skin
- Loose skin
- Slow metabolism
- Low blood circulation
All of these issues are believed to be soothed through the delicate heat of an infrared body wrap. It is believed that the heat from the wrapping technique stimulates the body systems to provide the desired result. Infrared body wrapping can be adjusted to multiple wavelengths depending on the issue being treated and the individual needs of the patient.
How Does Infrared Body Wrapping Work?
A typical infrared body wrapping appointment takes about an hour and features virtually no pain. During the infrared body wrapping, one of many different infrared light machines can be used. These machines deliver consistent, safe amounts of infrared heat to the body. This process can be done by lying down.
During the treatment itself:
- Infrared heat penetrates the body, roughly 1 – 2 inches deep depending on the wavelength
- The infrared heat stimulates the body, causing sweating and detoxification
- When used for fat reduction, the infrared light targets and “melts away” fat cells in order to produce the desired results
- Collagen growth is stimulated, which tightens the skin and reduces the appearance of cellulite
- By sweating, the body removes unnecessary “water weight” and may actually burn calories
Many people find the infrared body wrapping process to be relaxing and invigorating, not dissimilar to visiting a sauna. Before and after the treatment, it is crucial to hydrate in order to compensate for the large amount of water expelled by the body. Many people choose to receive multiple infrared body wrapping treatments in order to boost the results.
Infrared body wrapping features absolutely no downtime or recovery, as it is completely non-invasive. Some people even choose to receive the procedure during a lunch break and return to work the same day! Stop in Majestic Sun Salon Blue Bell and Welsh Rd locations for more information!
