a Slender You

Frequently Asked Question

Call us at 719.231.7080

Q. Is this just a temporary water loss?

No! The A Slender You contour wrap is a firming and toning process that produces results by detoxifying and contouring the flesh; therefore, you will lose inches not pounds. We recommend drinking 8 to 10 glasses of water a day, especially on the days following each wrap to continue the detoxification process through the body's natural elimination system. Flushing your system this way will even aid weight loss.

 
Q. Do the A Slender You treatments involve exercise?

Our system will reduce inches with or without exercise, but the benefits of any level of exercise will increase your results. You can either choose to use your hour in the wrap being active with the mineral wrap using a Gazelle or a Trampoline. Our proprietary mineral solution and our wrapping technique do almost all the work for you, but you do need to exercise your large muscle groups lightly. You will notice a significant inch loss is obtained with our mineral wrap.

 
Q. How long does it last?

As long as you maintain your weight (or lose weight), the lost inches will stay off for at least 2-3 months. Bear in mind that in every day life we continue to take in toxins through chemicals and preservatives absorbed daily through the air we breathe, the foods and drinks we consume, and the products we use on our bodies. As previously noted, the solution is removing toxins, so introducing toxic substances back into your body could reverse the effects.

During your post treatment consultations we give instructions to help maintain, and lose additional inches lost. We recommend reducing the amounts of toxins avoiding salt, sugar, fried foods, alcohol, caffeine and other highly toxic foods. Regular exercise will also delay the retoxification process and prolong your inch-loss results.

 
Q. Does it involve dieting?

No dieting is required for inch loss; however, if you are using A Slender You body wraps as part as your weight loss program, we recommend a body wrap after every 5 to 10 pound loss to help tighten up the skin.

 
Q. Will wraps help Lap Band/Gastric Bypass patients tighten and tone excess and loose skin?

Body Wraps are the perfect partner for gastric bypass or lap band patients who are losing weight drastically. Losing weight causes a breakdown of fat, releasing more toxins within the soft tissues, frequently resulting in loose, flabby-looking flesh. The detoxifying and sculpturing wrap will firm and tighten the flesh, showing the full benefits of your weight loss. We recommend a wrap after every 5 pound loss.

 
Q. How many inches will I lose?

Depending upon body type (the proportion of soft tissue to muscle mass), most clients average an 8 to 10 inch loss on their first wrap, and about half as much on the second and third wraps. Many customers have body wraps for skin tightening and cellulite reduction, which does not involve inch loss, while others seek the therapeutic benefits of detoxification.

 
Q. How often can I get a body wrap?

The body wrap is a safe and effective process that may be done as often as you wish. For inch loss results, we have found that a series of 6 to 12 wraps-performed at least 3 days apart gives most clients the full benefit of the process. If you are losing weight, a continuing series of treatments will show results and help tighten the skin to your new shape. Many people are happy after just one wrap, and others return monthly to maintain their results and to keep the skin soft and supple.

 
Q. What should I do after the wrap?

The body wrap process is still working in your body for 5-7 days after your body wrap and provides your body the ability to continue inch loss and tissue reduction. For continued results, we suggest the following:

    `
  • For continued inch loss, wear contouring clothes like a firm body shaper.
  • Since our process is removing toxins from your body, we encourage you to assist this process by avoiding toxic foods such as salt, sugar, alcohol, caffeine, and carbonated beverages for several days following the wrap.
  • An internal cleanse, which includes drinking 8 to 10 glasses of water a day, will complete the detox process by flushing out the toxins.
  • Avoid taking a shower on your wrap day, as the process is still working.
  • We also recommend avoiding creams or lotions on your areas of concern and by taking lukewarm showers during this time period.

In addition, dry brushing increase circulation and decrease the appearance of cellulite.

 
Q. What should I wear to be wrapped?

In order to maximize the coverage of the Mineral Wrap, we suggest that women be wrapped in cotton undergarments, and men are required to wear underwear and gym shorts. You will be wrapped in warm, damp bandages, so bring an extra set of dry undergarments to change into after the wrap.

 
Q. How long does it take?

Your first body wrap session is approximately 2 hours. The initial Pre-Consultation, first measuring, and wrapping will take up to 30 minutes. An additional 60 minutes is spent in the wraps on a piece of exercise equipment.Unwrapping; a second measurement and dressing will take approximately 15 minutes, followed by the reviewing the results from your first session, 15 minutes. For our members and program holders, the body wrap should take approximately 1 1/2 hours.

For those who have bought a Deluxe Detox Package you will enjoy a 20-minute dry sauna to begin your wrap experience. Your sauna treatment will fire up your metabolism a little and stimulate your sweat glands, making the entire experience that much more effective.

 
Q. How do body wraps work?

The body has 3 layers of fat. Over time, as toxins begin to accumulate, life, literally shapes our bodies:

The accumulation of the above toxins in the body causes poor circulation, water retention, and the body's natural elimination process becomes weakened. As toxins accumulate between the fat cells, the skin begins to take on an orange peel effect of cellulite as the fat cells expand to accommodate trapped toxins (demonstrated on the right side of the Body fat diagram above).

Our body wraps use a FDA approved mineral detoxifying solution that is absorbed into the body, extracting toxins from between the fat cells, and restoring much needed nutrients to the body. As toxins are removed, empty pockets are formed and the compression of our advanced wrapping technique creates inch loss, nourishes, tightens and tones the skin.

 
Q. I'm in the Military and will be taped soon for my Physical Fitness test. I want to lose a few inches before then, when should I come in?

Ideally members of the military seeking to lose the last few inches prior to your taping should have the last Mineral Body Wrap one day before taping.

Anytime Deluxe Detox package purchasers should spread out their treatments so there is two to three days between treatments.

Q. Bodybuilding, fitness, figure, bikini & physique athletes often ask about tightening the skin to create a better look during competitions ?

A mineral body wrap the day before you start posing on stage will produce the best results. Take advantage of your peak condition and fine tune it to perfection, earn honors for your tight skin and muscle tone.
Our mineral body wrap solution is FDA approved and does not contain any substances banned by the National Physique Committee.

Q. May nursing Mothers come in for a Mineral Body Wrap?

No. The high concentrations of minerals your body absorb during a mineral body wrap will go to your milk while you are nursing. We suggest using our Infrared Slimming Treatment while you are nursing.
