When to Consider a Body Wrap

When to Consider a Body Wrap

Winter weather dries out your skin; the air has less humidity in it. Are you tired of looking at skin imperfections like wrinkles, cellulite, or stretch marks? Now’s the time to combat premature signs of aging — before the swimsuit season. 

If you’ve never had a body wrap, now’s the perfect time to treat yourself to a soothing experience that leaves your skin hydrated and glowing. Once you have one body wrap, you’ll likely want to make it a regular part of your beauty routine. 

You’re in safe hands with Dr. Jack Hensel, Jr., board-certified plastic surgeon with Lowcountry Plastic Surgery Center in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. Dr. Hensel understands that when you look good, your self-confidence can soar, so give yourself the gift of aesthetic procedures, whether noninvasive or surgical. 

What is a body wrap?

A body wrap is a treatment to improve your skin’s health and appearance. There are various types of body wraps — mud and clay wraps and infrared wraps focus on detoxification; heat wraps may aid pain relief, while seaweed and algae wraps have vitamins that are helpful to the skin.

The body wrap that Dr. Hensel has selected to improve your skin’s appearance is an anti-aging treatment. The wrap includes both gel and cream. A handheld applicator infuses nourishing ingredients into your skin; they’re held in place with a special cloth. The wrap has been clinically studied and evaluated. 

What areas of the skin does the body wrap improve?

At Lowcountry Plastic Surgery Center, we can wrap the following areas

How does this body wrap improve my skin’s appearance? 

Following are some of the benefits of the Lowcountry Plastic Surgery Center’s anti-aging body wrap. 

Tightens the skin 

You’ve come to Lowcountry Plastic Surgery Center because your skin is showing signs of aging. As you age, skin loses its elasticity, so it’s not as firm as it was when you were 20. You notice the skin on the bottom of your upper arms is getting looser. When facial skin loses its elasticity, your cheeks begin to hollow out. You may have some loose skin around your jawline. Our unique body wrap helps lift and tighten your skin, lessening the appearance of wrinkles and firming up your skin in places where it’s looser. 

Helps minimize cellulite 

You want to reduce the appearance of dreaded cellulite. Our proprietary body wrap is designed to help minimize it. 

Retaining too much fluid exacerbates cellulite. When you’re sedentary during the day, your connective tissue collects excess fluid. Examine your hands, feet, ankles, and legs. Do you see signs of swelling, also called edema? You want to try to reduce water retention. Eating less salt, staying active, and increasing the amount of Vitamin B6 and magnesium you ingest help reduce fluid retention. 

You want your beautiful thighs back. The vitamins, antioxidants, and herbs in our body wrap target excess fluid retention and help make the surface of your skin smoother. 

Moisturizes the skin 

Our anti-aging wrap contains nutrients and moisturizers that nourish your skin, leaving it smooth and silky. There’s no more dry, flaky, rough skin. 

Relaxes your body 

Who doesn’t need some relaxation time? You’ll lie comfortably in your wrap and may choose soft, soothing background music to lull you into letting go of your worries and concerns. 

Total relaxation is good for your health. Relaxation lowers your heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing rate; aids digestion; ends muscle tension; and causes your brain to release endorphins.
