Summer is here and it’s time for those treatments that you NEED TO DO!

Among these, certainly the treatments of greatest interest to clients are bandages. Since all kinds of tutorials with abysmal errors are going viral on social and online, or most propose products full of harmful substances, we decided to offer you this vademecum to know all about bandages and to give you many tips.

Let’s start with some technical data:

In order to be able to talk about aesthetic interventions capable of improving the condition of the veno-lymphatic microcirculation, it is important to understand what effects cold and heat cause on the tissues. Vasoconstriction and vasodilation: Heat, in contact with the skin, results in skin changes with increased metabolism and effects on nerve endings that change their degree of perception and become more sensitive. The use of heat essentially causes an effect termed vasodilation, that is, a significant increase in vessel lumen and blood flow. As a result, there is an increase in tissue metabolism and a trophic action, that is, nourishment and oxygenation of the tissues; these effects occur both when heat is increased in one area of the body, thus locally, and when it is increased over the whole body. Heat also has a relaxing action on muscle fibers, decreasing pain if it is present; thus, its use on rheumatic, joint and muscle problems is excellent. Cold, conversely, has a reducing action on the vessel lumen, which can be termed vasoconstrictive and decongestant, thus causing drainage of present and stagnant fluids to the drainage pathways, and freeing the tissues from congestion and edema.

Bandaging constitutes one of the most popular and most performed treatments in beauty salons. It is used by the cosmetic practitioner in order to intervene on circulatory problems such as stasis of the veno-lymphatic micro-circulation with involvement of saphenous veins and the lymphatic circulation, widespread pain and tingling in the lower limbs, fatigue in standing for many hours and difficulty in walking for long distances; telangiectasias (noticeable capillaries); water retention, i.e., noticeable swelling and heaviness in the abdomen in the limbs; pefs, i.e., so-called cellulite, whereby the skin appears with unsightly orange peel skin; disharmony of the silhouette (pads) with increased hips and trochanteric areas (thigh area).

Goodbye to heavy legs!

How to apply them:

Wraps are applied to the legs from the bottom to the top . (from the foot to the torso and not vice versa) through cotton strips that are soaked in functional substances; the formulations used, which are then absorbed by the skin and promote a powerful draining action through the gradual compression exerted by the bandages, are mixtures of essential oils, birch, geranium, fucus, mint, eucalyptus, etc. The bandages should be rolled in a spiral shape around the affected limb and should be left on for at least 15 to 30 minutes and then removed. Depending on their benefits, wraps can be: firming; detoxifying; reducing; and counteracting PEFS (edematous-fibro sclerotic panniculopathy).

Bandages should be applied lightly and should not compress so as not to block blood circulation.

Do not use essential oils during pregnancy.

Wraps can also be applied to the torso and arms to achieve reducing, firming, toning action.

In case you buy “ready-made” products (which you will not find an environmentally friendly choice from us) pay close attention to the ingredients they contain. Just one example, there are bandages on the market that contain BUTYLPHENYL METHYLPROPIONAL, which is a synthetic preservative, suspected endocrine disruptor as well as allergen!!!

Ecology = Economy … find out below!

Our ecological choice and more!

Instead of choosing ready-made packages, which are certainly convenient but full of preservative ingredients (which end up in the lymphatic system), full of plastics and microplastics, which only create waste, we have chosen to offer you something super green but above all with a focus on the well-being of the wearer.

The recipe is simple: lukewarm\hot water, Epsom salt, Bandages!

Preparation time: a few minutes

Effect: Draining and Detoxifying

Cost: in the cabin they will have an impact of less than 1chf\treatment (instead of 10\15 chf\treatment of prepackages)

Ecological impact: none! The bandages are washed and reused until they are destroyed.

Other uses: epsom salt can be used for bandages but also for foot baths and scrubs!

If you can make a choice that is good for nature, good for your customers, and good for your pocket, why choose anything else?
