SHRINKING VIOLET BODY WRAP
The Shrinking Violet Body Wrap is a pain-free inch loss treatment that removes unwanted fat from all over the body, it does not rely on dehydration or water loss for its results. Instead it works by Lipolysis which is the process by which fats are broken down in our bodies through enzymes and water.
Before your treatment we measure certain points on your body and mark where was measured, your therapist will apply the Shrinking Violet oil which contains the active ingredients and wrap your body with the Shrinking Violet Wrapture. You will then be wrapped up cosy with a foil blanket and a fluffy blanket to retain heat. You may opt to add in an additional treatment such as a facial or simply relax while your wrap gets to work for an hour. Once removed you will be remeasured using the same points marked on the skin before the treatment.
The majority of clients achieve inch loss after one treatment but a course of 6 over a 5 week period is advised for best results.
€99 per wrap. Course of 6 wraps €495 (one free).
A full list of do’s and don’ts before and after the treatment are listed below.
THE SCIENCE BEHIND SHRINKING VIOLET
HOW THE TREATMENT WORKS
The main active ingredient in Shrinking Violet which provides inch loss is a Phospholipid. It contains a high content of Phosphatidylcholine (Hydrolised Lecithin) unsaturated (20%). It is derived from soya bean. The Phospholipid has the same effect as the popular fat dissolving injections that are on the market currently. These injections involve patients receiving dozens of small injections over several sessions. Shrinking Violet requires no injections.
Once the Shrinking Violet oil is applied to the skin it enters the dermis within seconds. The Phospholipid’s hydrophilic head is attracted to the water that surrounds a fat cell. The two hydrophilic tails of the Phospholipid repel water and want to get away from the water. Numerous Phospholipids come together to form a Phospholipid bilayer around the fat cell. The Phospholipids begin to rock and the tails come around (like arms giving a hug) the fat cell and make punctures in it. The punctures last for 72 hours. The fat inside the cell is changed by the active ingredient to a fatty acid which then leave the fat cell and enter the bodies tissues. It is then collected by the lymphatic capillaries and worked through the lymphatic system and other bodily systems ultimately being excreted from the body via urination.
The wrap used is LLDPE co-extruded 5 layer cast high grade stretch film, it is thicker and has lots of stretch giving the best wrap of the client possible.
The nearest market to the Shrinking Violet would be the use of the same product to secure heat pads/ice packs to the limbs of footballers, rugby players and according to the suppliers is supplied to many premiership clubs. Shrinking Violet has been tested independently by Reading Clinical Research under Clinical Testing conditions.
BEFORE THE TREATMENT
- Do not consume a large meal.
- Do not have any other heat treatment in the same 24 hours e.g sunbed, sauna, steam room etc.
- Do not wax in the 48 hours before treatment.
- Do not shave in the 24-48 hours before treatment.
- Take a warm bath or shower before your treatment to ensure the skin is completely clean.
- Do not apply moisturisers or creams to the skin in the 24 hours before your treatment as it may create a barrier on the skin.
AFTER THE TREATMENT
- Have a light diet. Eating heavy, fatty meals will result in further fat forming in the cells.
- Drink plenty of water (at least 8 glasses a day) to ensure the fatty acids that have been removed from the cells are excreted.
- Limit salt, sugar, caffeine, alcohol, cigarettes and processed foods.
- Leave the oil on your skin after your treatment. You can lightly shower but only use soap or shower gel on necessary areas (such as underarms, groin or feet). Do this for 72 hours.
- Follow a healthy lifestyle that includes exercise to prevent further fat from forming in the cells.
- Dry body brushing before a shower will help to improve the skins texture and tone.
- Maintain your results with regular Shrinking Violet Body Wraps.
