Shrinking violet

Shrinking violet is a revolutionary new type of slimming wrap and is recommended to be used as part of a sensible eating and healthy lifestyle. The slimming wrap provides instant results and keeps working for up to 72 hours after the treatment.

Shrinking violet is designed to shrink fat cells through Lypolisis. This painless, effortless process can successfully decrease fat from problem areas, such as stomach, thighs, buttocks, arms and legs. The pre blended specialist oil, applied to the skin, penetrates to the subcutaneous layer of the skin where fat is stored to break down fat cells which are then easily excreted by the body. The amount of reduction varies for each person depending on metabolism, lifestyle, medication and menstrual cycle. Many people reduce by at least one whole size after the first treatment. The main ingredient is an active phospholipid solution, which is pre-blended with essential oils containing a cellulite blend which also improves the aesthetic appearance of the skin, including cellulite, stretch marks and rough or dry skin.

For maximum results we recommend a 6 weeks course with before and after care whilst following a sensible diet and exercise programme.

What does the treatment involve?

Firstly you will be measured, wear a bikini or underwear you feel comfortable in, a robe will be provided. The skin will then be lightly exfoliated with a body brush before the specially formulated oil is applied. The body is then wrapped to seal in the oil and help penetration.

You will then be invited to lie back and relax in the warmed beauty bed for 60 minutes while the oil takes effect. During this time you can enjoy any of the following treatments or simply lie back and enjoy the calming relaxing environment.

  • Scalp, hand & foot massage
  • Reflexology
  • Facial
  • Eyelash tint (patch test required)
  • Eyebrow shape
  • Eyebrow tint
  • Semi permanent Occasion lashes

Once the time is complete the wrap is removed and measurements will be taken and recorded to assess fat reduction. It is important to note that we would like to avoid focusing on numbers and instead focus on how clothes are feeling before and after the treatment and the days following the wrap.

How long does the treatment take?

Treatment time is 1 hour 45 minutes.

What does it feel like?

Quite comfortable, the wrap does not feel overly tight and a slight squeezing sensation is felt. We aim to keep the body just 2 degrees warmer than normal, not to hot to avoid sweating (this would reduce results) using the heated bed and blankets.

Are there any side effects?

Yes, the wrap should encourage fat cells to shrink and urination should increase, the more water you drink the more your body can process fat removal processes through the lymphatic system.

How long will results last?

An immediate result can be noticed after just 1 treatment and results should improve for 72 hours post treatment. Shrinking violet is an excellent jump start to a new and slimmer you however, the cells which have been reduced due to the shrinking violet process can become full again if excessive calories are consumed. For maximum results a course is recommended whilst following a healthy exercise and eating lifestyle.

How often should I have a treatment?

A wrap can be applied after 7 days however for optimum results a 6 wrap plan should be followed; 1 wrap each week for 4 weeks followed by 2 wraps fortnightly.
