Formostar has been a great addition to my practice. My patients are very happy with the results. They find that it works really well to reduce areas like the thighs, stomach and love handles.

We have been using the system at my West Hollywood office for about four months now. Initially, I was skeptical after reading company provided “testimonials” touting a myriad of “miraculous results.” After personally treating a number of patients and continuing to speak to current patients having ongoing treatments, I have come to the opinion that the procedure does indeed produce visible and measurable results in most patients. Obviously results and satisfaction will vary depending on each individual patient’s unique situation and expectations. I am pleased that the procedure offers an effective non surgical option for those patients unable or not yet needing a more invasive surgical procedure. The majority of patients tend to be very satisfied after undergoing a series of treatments and continue to return for “touch ups”.I’m happy that we are now incorporating the system in our Brentwood office as I believe that it will benefit our practice and more importantly our clients. Thank You!

So far every client that has bought a session has loved it. The Formostar Body Wrap System is a one of a kind. We are expanding to make room for another one.

Thanks for coming up and sharing your knowledge with us all! Our Formostar is well on the way to paying for itself. I started using the Formostar Infrared Body Wrap System in my locations for over a year ago. I have, along with my clients, experienced the benefits from it for sore and stiff muscles. We have also had great success with the weight loss and detox benefits, our training was great and the system is very easy to use.

I am writing to let you know that for the first time our company, A Healthier You received a prescription for the Formostar body wrap system from a doctor. We had it approved by the insurance company. We are so excited and are looking forward to many more. A doctor prescribed it for a client that was in an automoblie accident. The infrared treatment is very good for this type of injury and more. We put a moist towel under the injured area, then wrapped the whole body. The client is doing much better. Thanks for such a versatile system.

How long does each client treatment last?

The customer is wrapped for 50 minutes.

What parts of the body can be targeted?

There are six high-density silicone treatment pads providing several wrapping options.

For 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.

What is the body reshaping opportunity using the Formostar?

The answer greatly depends on the physiological make-up of each individual. Generally, the greater the excess weight being carried, the faster and more dramatic the reshaping results will be. Some people will not experience significant weight loss at all but will see improved body shaping, losing inches or dress sizes. Extremely physically fit people that don’t carry excess weight or inches can experience much improved muscle tone. Obviously, the more physically active a person is, the greater the benefits that can be achieved from Formostar. Common sense dictates that if a client is on a Formostar program and then eats or drinks excessively most of the results will be negated. Formostar treatments will be of most value with a balanced exercise and eating program. Clients that lead a very sedentary lifestyle can still achieve great results over a longer period assuming that they exercise adequate control over dietary and other general health factors. Experience worldwide indicates that the rule of thumb is one clothes size reduction in 6 to 10 sessions with 2 to 3 days between each session.

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, 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.

How often can clients 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. With relatively physically inactive people, a minimum of 3 days between sessions is recommended. More regular sessions are unnecessary and may actually be detrimental to results. Upon reaching the intended body shape, it is possible to revert to maintenance only schedule, which for most people, should be around 2 to 4 times a month.

Can clients use multiple infrared treatments, such as 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.

Who can use Infrared Heat?

Virtually everyone from all walks of life can gain benefit from a Formostar Far Infrared program. However, sessions should not be undertaken unless clients have received their Doctor’s advice where any of the following conditions exist: Over activity of the thyroid gland, cardiac infarction, cardiac weakness, constriction of the coronary blood vessels, marked high or low blood pressure, diabetes requiring insulin treatment, disturbances to the function of the kidneys and associated organs, fever, severe general infection, contact allergies, skin diseases, open wounds, newly acquired shingles, pregnancy, prescribed medicines causing increased sensitivity to physical stimulation (for example antibiotics), cases of severe varicose veins. As always, if any doubt exists, it is recommended that clients seek their doctor’s or health practitioner’s advice.

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.
