Do Body Wraps Help with Stretch Marks?

What Happens During a Body Wrap

Everyone loves a nice, satisfying wrap, but these types of wraps are not available at your local deli. To receive a body wrap, you will have to make your way to a local spa like Novopelle Med Spa, where you can receive this powerful treatment that enhances the health and appearance of the skin and works to reduce body measurements. Patients flock to the body wrap for weight loss, cellulite reduction, detoxing, slimming, and overall relaxation.

During a body wrap, a spa specialist will cover your body in a mask that is made up of plants and herbs like algae, seaweed, mud, clay, creams, and lotions. All of these healing substances are placed within a saran wrap, creating a wrap-like effect during the procedure. At Novopelle Med Spa, the treatment lasts one hour, and we use a specific set of ingredients: Detox Base, Active Slim Gel, and Active Slim Cream, and we also massage these products into the patient’s area of concern.

Benefits of Receiving a Body Wrap at a Spa

When you think of burning cellulite, you probably think of long hours spent in the gym and tedious hours calorie counting. What makes the body wrap so unique is that it provides patients an opportunity to relax while burning cellulite. Many patients turn to body wraps before a major event or special occasion for an extra boost of confidence and an enhanced state of relaxation. Some of the other benefits of receiving a body wrap include:

  • Reducing the appearance of stretch marks

Yes, body wraps do help reduce the appearance of stretch marks! One of the best ways to curb the appearance of stretch marks is to keep the body and the skin hydrated. Because body wraps have a hydrating effect, they are a great way to accomplish this.

  • Reducing water weight

During a body wrap procedure, the body releases a lot of excess water. Water weight is often responsible for making the body appear bigger, so letting go of the excess water weight will help you achieve a slimmer figure.

  • Improving body contouring

Body wraps are specifically designed to improve body contouring because of the precision with which they target certain areas of the body. Body wraps promote a natural contouring process, which helps improve a patient’s self-image surrounding their figure.

  • Reducing cellulite

The main way that a body wrap treatment works to reduce cellulite is by flushing out toxins that contribute to the appearance of cellulite. The treatment can also help smooth the skin’s complexion and tighten the skin, which makes cellulite-prone areas less defined.

  • Exfoliation

Before the wrapping portion of a body wrap begins, the patient is typically scrubbed and exfoliated with a substance like sea salt, pumice, sugar, or another natural ingredient that removes dead skin cells. Regular exfoliation is important because it helps stimulate collagen production, which improves the skin’s texture and keeps it looking young and refreshed.

  • Detoxification

The organic substances used in body wraps have the ability to remove toxins and excess fluid from the body. This happens because the products stimulate your circulation and provide the body with healthy minerals. The most immediately noticeable effect of this is softened skin, but patients also report that they feel an improved sense of well-being over time.

  • Relaxation

A body wrap involves massaging aspects, which is naturally relaxing, but the aromatic components involved in the procedure are relaxing as well. Furthermore, the heat from the wrap relaxes the muscles, opens the pores, and encourages sweating. Body wraps offer an opportunity for patients to improve how they feel about themselves and unwind in the process.
