The Formostar Infrared Body Wrap System
The Formostar Infrared Body Wrap is a highly effective weight control, inch loss, pain management, detoxification system that is fast, easy, and effective. It uses infrared heat that penetrates twice as deep as other heat sources to target toxins and cellulite trapped in pockets below the surface of the skin. The secret of the Formostar Infrared Body Wrap system is the way that the deep heat therapy activates the function of natural enzymes and metabolism within the tissues.
You may burn 1200 or more calories in just one 50-minute session and potentially see and feel results from your very first session, and the inch loss from infrared treatments are permanent — unlike many of the generic body wraps you may have used.

The whole process to set up is only 5-10 minutes so you can relax, lay back, and enjoy your 50 minutes of burning calories and detoxifying your body.
How Formostar Infrared Body Wraps Work
Losing Weight is a simple process. You need to burn more calories that you consume. Unused calories are stored as fat. Fat storage areas on women are primarily the thighs, buttocks, stomach, breasts and upper arms. Stored fat is known as “cold fat” as blood circulation is extremely low in fat storage areas. When we work out, our muscles and vital organs receive the majority of our blood flow. It is virtually impossible to “work off” some fats through exercise. Limited blood circulation results in what is known as ‘cold spots’ where the fat hardens and over time leads to cellulite. The Formostar Body wrap reverses this situation by applying infrared heat to the body.
The core temperature of our body is 37 degrees Celsius and gets colder toward the outer skin layer. Consequently, the outer areas of the body tend to be around 10 degrees Celsius cooler and this is where excess fat is typically deposited.
For body toning, it is typically needed to sustain cardiovascular exercise for a minimum of 30 minutes, 3 to 4 times per week. During this exercising, the body temperature rises and sweat is generated as the body attempts to cool itself. At the same time, the heart works harder pumping blood at a greater rate to boost circulation. Heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate increase, while diastolic blood pressure drops, improving overall cardiovascular fitness and burning off fat deposits.
Using Infra red heat applied directly to the body via the silicon bandages allows between 970-1460 calories to be sweated out in a 50 minute session.
You can burn up to 900 to 1,400 calories or more in just one 50 minute session of the Formostar Body Wrap System.

FAQs for the Formostar Infrared Body Wrap Treatments
Infrared is the band of light we perceive as heat. We cannot see this band of light with the naked eye, but we can feel this type of light in the form of heat. Our sun produces most of its energy output in the infrared segment of the spectrum. Infrared rays heat your body without having to heat the air in-between, through a process called conversion.
The infrared is divided into 3 segments by wavelengths, measured in microns; 0.76~1.5 microns-near;1.5~5.6 microns-middle;5.6~1000 microns-far infrared. Among these segments, only far infrared penetrates organic substances such as the human body two to three inches so that the warming effect is very uniform.
Of course any diet and lifestyle improvement will be of benefit whether or not people decide to undertake a Formostar program. However, if a client has made the commitment to the Formostar program then more value will be derived from that commitment if other lifestyle improvements are also undertaken.
It is recommended that drinking 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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. Ideally, Formostar 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. However, as previously indicated, results will be dependent on each persons particular make up and physiology.
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 arms. If the arms 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.
The customer is wrapped for 60 minutes, with around 10 minute machine warm-up.
