Body Wraps

The most popular of these wraps are sold through It Works representatives and sells for about $25. The wraps are said to tone, firm, and tighten skin in as little as 45 minutes with progressive results in 72 hours. You can place the wrap on problem areas such as your stomach, back, arms, thighs, and chin/neck. However, there is a separate applicator for your face. It is recommended that you consume a lot of water (at least half of your body weight in ounces) while the wrap is on and during the 72 hours that follow. You also are not to eat while using the wrap.

The wrap detoxifies fat cells in your body, essentially causing them to shrink and expel the toxins. Most women claim to have lost two to ten inches with just one application. However, physicians warn that results should be viewed only as temporary and state that each body will react differently to the treatment. One woman reported no results, but was told that this was due to her medical history and the medication she currently was taking for her thyroid condition. According to WebMD, wraps are a great way to kick start a weight loss program, but must be maintained through more treatments or healthy diet and exercise.

Spa Treatments

Traditionally, body wraps have been done in spas and were first done with linen cloth. Treatments can cost anywhere from $85 to $125 depending on the spa and what type of treatment you decide upon. While some body wraps focus on promoting relaxation and in depth hydration, others, like their do-it-yourself counterparts, also boast to detoxify, slim, and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Body wraps that use algae, seaweed, mud or clay are treatments to detoxify the body and help to remove toxins through metabolic stimulation. Body wraps that utilize shea butter and rich lotions are hydrating treatments geared towards softening the skin.

The atmosphere of a spa is a little different than that of your house – well maybe. Most spas feature darkened rooms with flickering candles. Soft, calming music plays in the background and probably just a hint of lavender or some other relaxing scent will linger in the air. Some spas will start off with a body scrub. Then, the remedy will be applied to your skin and you will be wrapped in a thermal blanket or plastic to help keep you warm. After about thirty minutes, it is common that you will be asked to rinse and lotion applied. Many recommend going to a spa in which a massage therapist administers the product. Estheticians will apply product to your skin, however, massage therapists often incorporate massage techniques into their application.

Useful Tricks Remove Stretch Marks

No matter which cream you choose, there is one important principle you need to consider. In order to remove those unattractive marks naturally you have to take preventive steps ahead of time. Most women prefer to only deal with the problem once their baby is born, but the best thing to do is to start applying a professional cream that includes all natural ingredients, from the third month of pregnancy.

Red stretch marks, or even the colorless ones, occur as a result of massive changes happening in your body. The transformations that take place are incredible and wonderful – the stretches are just a side effect that can be easily treated as long as you’re aware of it, and act from the very beginning to remove stretch marks quickly.

The great news is that most women who take precautionary measures are usually capable of preventing any kind of permanent skin damage. Of course the skin will stretch once you get pregnant, but they can be removed before you even notice them by thinking ahead. You would be amazed to see how effective these preventive treatments are!

From applying a good cream, drinking lots of water, keeping your skin hydrated, to eating lots of food rich in vitamins A,C and E – these are the methods that will help you remove stretch marks quickly.

Tummy Tuck

Generally who undergoes a tummy tuck surgery is quite often a woman who has given birth and developed stretch marks and saggy or loose skin on her abdomen. Apart from this situation, other women choose this surgery if they have gone through a caesarean section, or those who may have scars on their lower abdomen.

Others who frequently reap benefits from it are those who have lost a lot of body weight. Due to their huge weight-loss, these individuals are usually left with excessive folds of saggy skin on their stomach region. This may cause depression among people who end up in such a situation and therefore this surgery is an ideal solution for this situation. It also helps in boosting confidence of people and stops them from regaining their lost weight.

A tummy tuck scar commonly goes horizontally from hip to hip above the pubic area. The cosmetic surgeon who is commonly a cosmetic/plastic surgeon tries his best to make sure that only a small scare remains on the abdomen area to be noticed. People, especially women don’t like to have any type of scars on their body. For that reason the cosmetic surgeon will do his utmost to make sure the scar that’s remaining is as least visible as possible.

It’s vital that people who have decided to undergo this surgery should be aware of the fact that there will be a scar on their abdomen. This is a major surgery and therefore the scar will be visible to naked eyes. However, this problem can be resolved to a great extent if you choose the best cosmetic surgeon, who knows how to handle the scar problem. Tummy tuck surgery is generally performed on healthy people who aren’t suffering from any major illness.

Bogus Beauty Treatments

Beauty queen and former Elvis love Priscilla Presley, now 62, famously made headlines when she visited a doctor who injected her with “low-grade silicon” he had smuggled into the US. It is thought the silicon was fabricated to grease auto parts, not plump up aging women’s faces.

The latest hype about the latest trendy product makes news headlines, and those in the know want to be first. However, they are also often the first to discover that the treatments don’t really work, or that the small benefit they get is not worth the hefty price tag. Here are a few that have either extremely temporary benefits, or none at all…

* Oxygen Facial. Can putting a bit of oxygen on your face really make your skin look fresh, younger and rejuvenated? Well, Hollywood actresses jumping on the oxygen facial bandwagon say yes; scientists say no. There is no real evidence that squirting atomized moisturizers, or those infused with oxygen, can have any beneficial effects whatsoever – except on the wallet of the person doing the squirting!

* Seaweed Wraps. Supposedly they can help you get rid of excess poundage by drawing out impurities from your body and helping with fluid retention. The ocean slime is wrapped around your body and your skin is detoxified as the mineral-rich seaweed draws out fluid from our cells. So you may lose some water, but will quickly put it back on. Might was well just not drink anything for a few days!

* Tua Viso Non Surgical Facelift. This facial exerciser works with a 9-volt battery to exercise the face so you don’t have to, much like an abdominizer supposedly does to your tummy. But it has little scientific evidence to back it up, and many who have tried it say it does nothing.

* Rodial Bum Lift. A topical cream that promises an “instant fix” to make your bum look smaller, including reducing 32 percent of cellulite and altering the appearance of wrinkles. But results are temporary, and you need “at least six treatments” for anything more permanent. So why is it advertised as being “instant”?

* Smooth Away hair remover. Kind of like sandpaper to buff away unwanted hair and make skin soft and smooth. Unfortunately, feels like sandpaper too – and leaves most of the hair right where it was. Also can make skin feel rough and sore.
