How Formostar Works

dualwrapped3How the Formostar Infrared Body Wrap Treatment Works
The core temperature of our body is 37 degrees Celsius and constantly reduces toward the outside. Consequently, the outer areas of the body tend to be around 10 degrees Celsius colder and this is where excess fat is typically deposited.

In order to achieve body toning, it is necessary to undergo sustained cardiovascular exercise for a minimum of 30 minutes, 3 to 4 times per week. During exercise, 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.

Guyton’s Textbook of Medical Physiology reports that one gram of sweat requires 0.586 kcal. The JAMA citation above goes on to state that ” A moderately conditioned person can easily sweat of 500 grams in a traditional sauna, consuming nearly 300 kcal-the equivalent of running two to three miles. A heat conditioned person can easily sweat off 600 to 800 kcal with no adverse effects. While the weight of water lost can be regained by rehydration, the calories consumed will not be.”

The implications are that Far Infrared heat applied directly to the body via the silicone treatment pads will allow between 970-1400 kcal to be eliminated via perspiration during a 60 minute session.

Easy To Use

One of the most appealing aspects of Formostar is that there is no need to remove clothing for an effective session. The silicone treatment pads should not be directly applied to the skin. Natural fabric such as cotton clothing is recommended. Clients simply lie down on a comfortable massage table, have the silicone treatment pads wrapped around the areas to be treated and relax for 60 minutes.

Easy To Operate

The most appealing aspect for the operator is how easy the Formostar is to operate and that it only requires minimal staff time for each 60-minute session. A user’s manual with step-by-step instruction is provided with each system.
