Spa Treatments for Weight Loss That Make You Look Thinner, Faster
Losing weight is never easy, and sometimes you need a little help to lose those last few pesky pounds. Many spa treatments claim to help you lose weight, but do they really work?
Weight Loss Spa Treatments
Some of the most common slimming spa treatments include electrostimulation, body wraps, lymphatic drainage massage, and MyLipo body sculpting. All of these options have pros and cons, but most have more cons than pros.
For example, electrostimulation involves attaching electrodes to the areas being treated and sending a small electric charge through the adipose (fat) tissue. This supposedly increases muscle contraction and increases blood flow, reshaping the treatment areas and smoothing out cellulite.
While, in theory, this sounds like a good idea, treatments are about 30 to 90 minutes in length and usually cost $100 to $300 each. Electrostimulation will cause the loss of water weight due to the sweating it induces, but it does not typically result in long-term weight loss.
Spa wraps are another popular treatment for weight loss. This involves sitting in a heated room and wrapping elastic bandages around your belly after being scrubbed with an exfoliant and smeared in creams. Like electrostimulation, spa wraps cause weight loss via sweating but do nothing to help you burn fat. Treatments cost about $150 and people usually need several wraps to maintain "weight loss."
Lymphatic Drainage Massage
Lymphatic drainage massage is a medspa weight loss treatment that claims you can rub away the fat. A trained therapist massages your body to unclog lymph nodes for about $80 to $120 a session. It is a good option for people who have had surgery because it does help with swelling, but does not work for weight loss.
MyLipo Body Sculpting
MyLipo LED body contouring in Seattle is a non-invasive body sculpting technique that uses red light to slim problem areas such as love handles, thighs, under the chin and more. Also known as photobiomodulation, MyLipo is a simple, affordable, hygienic, and effective treatment that is completely noninvasive, making it painless and safe. The red light stimulates the fat cells in the body to release the stored fat, allowing your metabolism to burn the fat for energy.
Does Body Contouring Work?
Because the red light stimulates the release of stored fat, MyLipo can help tighten and slim areas that are not responsive to exercise. At Seattle Sun Tan, we have heard MyLipo reviews from customers that are thrilled with the results. You will need several treatments for best results, but we have multiple locations in Washington to make this easy and convenient.
