  • How & why does Formostar Far Infrared Body Wrap work?
    Far infrared energy is a part of the natural light spectrum minus the UV element. The Formostar Far Infrared Body Wrap has been designed to output energy in the 5.6 to 25 micron infrared ray band also peaking around the 9.4 micron level to achieve maximum effectiveness. When Far infrared energy penetrates through the skin it transforms from light energy to heat energy and elevates the temperature of the subcutaneous layers. The body's absorption of this energy simulates a workout, burning up to 900 to 1400 calories in a 60 minute session providing body shaping and detoxification.
  • What parts of the body can be targeted?
    There are six high-density silicone treatment pads providing several wrapping options. For most women, the silicone pads are wrapped around the thighs, hips, abdomen, and arms. For men, the usual configuration is thighs, abdomen, chest, and shoulders. If the shoulders don't need much toning up, the calves can be wrapped instead. The heat to each of the silicone pads is individually controlled therefore the level can be set according to the client's comfort level.
  • How often can I repeat Formostar treatments?
    This will depend on a person's lifestyle. If a person is very physically active undertaking significant walking, jogging, working out, or competitive sports, then Formostar treatments can be as often as every 2 days. For best results it is preferable right before a workout as this will help burn the most dramatic amount of calories and also has maximum impact on body definition.
  • Should I drink water before or after a session?
    It is recommended that drinking room temperature water before, during and after a session allows the body to stay hydrated and replaces body fluids that have been sweated out during the session.
  • Can I use the Formostar and a tanning session, on the same day?
    Both the Formostar and a tanning bed give off infrared heat therefore it is possible to receive a burn or heat rash if both sessions are undertaken on the same day. It is not recommended, especially if the client is fair skinned and prone to burning. Tanning the previous or the next day should be perfectly fine.
  • How long does each client treatment last?
    The customer is wrapped for 50 minutes, with around 10 minute machine warm-up.
