Formostar Encore Infrared Body Wrap System Provides Spa Owners with a 'Green' Treatment Option, MASSAGE MagazinePort Hueneme, CA – The new Formostar Encore, Formostar Direct’s recently introduced Infrared Body Wrap System, provides clients with an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional body-wrap treatments. Unlike traditional body wraps that use disposable bandages and solutions during the body-wrap procedure, the Encore envelops the client in reuseable silicone pads, directly applying infrared heat deep into the body’s tissues. With the Formostar Encore, there are no consumables to purchase, store and, most importantly, dispose of at the end of the treatment session, making the Encore a “green” treatment option.

According to Jim Frye, president of Formostar Direct, “By using the Encore treatment system, spa owners can provide their clientele with a treatment experience that will enhance their well-being with the knowledge that they are not creating any waste products.” He further states, “Even though our Encore system uses electricity, the energy efficient, low-power consumption system operates on just pennies per treatment, maintaining a very small carbon footprint. The Formostar Encore Dual allows the spa or other aesthetic services provider to conduct not just a single treatment, but two treatments can be done simultaneously for even greater efficiencies.”

The Formostar Encore’s infrared body wrap is a noninvasive treatment that allows clients to have complete modesty, as there is no need for disrobing while being wrapped. Using a standard massage table, the client is in a reposed state of being during the one-hour treatment session.

There are many benefits of the Encore’s infrared heat. The infrared heat penetrates the body’s epidermis, muscles, fat stores and actually goes down to the bone, promoting increased blood flow/circulation and boosting metabolism and energy consumption.

The Formostar Encore Infrared Body Wrap Treatment provides not only cosmetic, but therapeutic results as well for the client during each session. Typical benefits of the Encore’s infrared heat include:

• Burning calories, up to 1,400 per session (weight loss)

• Body contouring and slimming (inch loss)

• Diminishing the appearance of cellulite (reduce fat stores)

• Stress reduction

• Pain relief

• Smoothing and rejuvenation of the skin

• Cellular detoxification

Frye also states, “Unlike body wrap treatments that require time to wrap and unwrap bandages as well as an hour or so of treatment time, an Encore infrared treatment takes minimal preparation time. The silicone pads can be applied and removed in two to three minutes, making the Encore treatment a relaxing client experience from beginning to end.”

And lastly, according to Frye, “Today’s busy women and men appreciate having a convenient, relaxing and eco-friendly option that they can turn to that provides a multitude of benefits from a single treatment system. The Formostar Encore is the only system that delivers on all levels.”
