The Formostar Infrared Body Wrap is a highly effective weight control, inch loss, pain management, detoxification system that is fast, easy, and effective. It uses infrared heat that penetrates twice as deep as other heat sources to target toxins and cellulite trapped in pockets below the surface of the skin. The secret of the Formostar Infrared Body Wrap system is the way that the deep heat therapy activates the function of natural enzymes and metabolism within the tissues.
You may burn 1400 or more calories in just one 60-minute session and potentially see and feel results from your very first session, and the inch loss from infrared treatments are permanent — unlike many of the generic body wraps you may have used.
Formostar Infrared Body Wrap Features
The Formostar Body Wrap System is a targeted Infra Red heat system usually found Medi-Spas, and Medical offices that target specific inch loss, weight loss, and cause improved skin conditions from Acne, Psoriasis, Cellulite removal and more.
One of the best features is that you don’t even have to remove your clothes off to do this. Just wear absorbent clothing and we will wrap you in the hygienic silicone wraps for a 60 minute treatment. The whole process to set up is only 5-10 minutes so you can relax, lay back, and enjoy the process of burning calories and detoxifying your body.
Losing Weight is a simple process. You need to burn more calories that you consume. Unused calories are stored as fat. Fat storage areas on women are primarily the thighs, buttocks, stomach, breasts and upper arms. Stored fat is known as “cold fat” as blood circulation is extremely low in fat storage areas. When we work out, our muscles and vital organs receive the majority of our blood flow. It is virtually impossible to “work off” some fats through exercise. Limited blood circulation results in what is known as ‘cold spots’ where the fat hardens and over time leads to cellulite. The Formostar Body wrap reverses this situation by applying infrared heat to the body.
The core temperature of our body is 37 degrees Celsius and gets colder toward the outer skin layer. Consequently, the outer areas of the body tend to be around 10 degrees Celsius cooler and this is where excess fat is typically deposited.
For body toning, it is typically needed to sustain cardiovascular exercise for a minimum of 30 minutes, 3 to 4 times per week. During this exercising, the body temperature rises and sweat is generated as the body attempts to cool itself. At the same time, the heart works harder pumping blood at a greater rate to boost circulation. Heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate increase, while diastolic blood pressure drops, improving overall cardiovascular fitness and burning off fat deposits.

1. How long is the actual time that I’m wrapped and what do I do?
A. 60 Minutes is the actual session time. While you are wrapped you can enjoy watching a Movie, listen to your own music, or enjoy reading a book. What you choose is up to you, it’s just that easy, and very relaxing. We suggest bringing a bottle of water to drink and drinking water before your appointment. Please be aware that if you are late, you may lose minutes on your session. If you think you are going to be late, please call us and let us know.
2. What parts of my body do you wrap with the FormoStar Infrared pads?
A. For most woman, the infrared silicone bandages are wrapped around the abdomen, hips, thighs, and arms. Men, the usual wrapped areas would be: chest, abdomen, arms, and thighs. If you feel you do not need a lot of toning on the arms then you can have us wrap your calves instead.
3. How many sessions before I feel/see results?
A. The answer will greatly depend on you. Because FomorStar has many other benefits including cellular detoxification you will notice a difference in the way you feel like: increased energy, better sleep and pain reduction just to mention a few, as soon as the first or second session. For inch loss, weight loss, cellulite reduction and/or loss, and stretch mark reduction, the average number of sessions is 8 – 20 depending on your circumstances but some can see as much as a whole dress size in as few as 6 sessions.
4. Can I do the FormoStar if I am pregnant or have other medical circumstances?
A. No. You can not use FormoStar if you are pregnant and if you have any serious medical conditions such as: Kidney Disease, Diabetes requiring insulin, Heart Conditions, Fever, Severe General Infection, over activity of the Thyroid, Open Wounds, newly acquired Shingles, cases of Severe Varicose Veins, etc. we recommend that you talk with your Physician about using Infrared heat treatments before you schedule your appointment.
5. Is the weight/inch loss permanent?
A. Yes, upon maintaining proper eating and exercise habits.
6. How often do I do FormoStar?
A. If you are exercising and drinking plenty of water you should schedule your appointments every other day for optimal results. If not then every three days and once you reach your goal you can maintain 2 – times a month.
7. What if I want to tan on the same day as doing FormoStar?
A. We do not recommend that you tan immediately before or after your session. You can come in to tan after your body has had time to cool down.
8. What do I wear when I come in to do FormoStar?
A. We recommend that you wear a pair of long sweat/cotton pants(not leggings or yoga pants) and a long sleeve cotton shirt. We need to have all areas of the body covered for the silicone pads can not be directly applied on the skin. Because of the amount of sweating you will do, you may want to bring a change of clothes to slip back into before you leave.
