It may sound too good to be true, a wrap applied to your body that offers almost immediate fat loss. I set out to see if they really work.
"When I first started coming in, I always thought, well, it's a gimmick. I'll try it and stuff like that. I've been through four weeks now and the results are remarkable for me," says John Sayler.
John Sayler has been losing weight and working out for years, but still had some trouble losing inches around his abdomen.
"What I've noticed with the wrap is that it actually focuses on that area. And, I can still eat right and work out and lose the weight and I'm also losing the inches, so that's the motivating thing about it," says Sayler.
And these wraps not only claim get rid of fat, but detoxify the body at the same time.
"Our wrap is organic niacin-based cream, which actually works from the outside in. So, it's a transdermal cream that used the cell as a vehicle to pull toxins from the fat cells in the lymphatic system," says Dr. Kirk Blackwood.
I wanted to see how these work for myself, so we wrapped my right leg, using the special creams and saran wrap.
"Ok, so what we're going to do today is we're just going to do a body wrap. We're going to start with the exfoliation. What it's going to do is just going to to remove all the oils, creams, anything and everything that's on your skin," says Sayler.
Next, the niacin-based cream was applied to my leg, saran wrap was put over that. And then, the waiting game began.
The wrap is on nice and tight now and the process was extremely quick and painless, which was important. So now, we just sit about 45 minutes and wait until I'm ready to be cut out of the wrap.
From my experience today, body wraps are a painless and relaxing.
