Tons of tanning salons in my area seem to be getting more skin care type services. I would say that it is successful and if you start now you'll be ahead of the pack. People are getting more savvy about skin care and know what they like and don't like. I know that everyone seems to be afraid of wrinkles now (including me!), so you have a good market for this. Body wraps are pretty common in Europe. I'm surprised more salons here don't do it. Good luck with your endevour!

I do infrared body wraps. Been doing them for 5 years and I love having the service in my salon. I also just added skin care I rent one of my rooms out to a girl and she just pays rent and I don't have another employee to look after. When I bought this store 3 years ago there was skin care equipment here its been in storage. If you are getting started its for sale, Don 425-827-1195. I am in Washingtion.

From what I have heard, body wraps do great in California but suck everywhere else. Just hear say though

Before investing in bodywraps check you state Regs there might be restrictions on who can do them.

I am looking to add infrared body wraps. Can anyone help me with comparing Formostar ($9500) and the Far Infrared Body Shaping System Blanket wrap sauna which only costs about $500? It's a huge price difference. What kind of results are you getting with these two systems

I am looking to add body wraps to my salon in NC as well.....I have been trying to get opinions on the Formostar vs. traditional clay body wraps. Does anyone have any info on how well the Formostar does, profitability, etc. I don't like the look of it, but if it gives a good result I have the market and clientelle for it, just not sure which is the better way to go....

Re: Body Wraps

I've had the Formostar system in the salon since Labor Day, and the client feedback has been amazing.

Though mainly marketed as weight loss, the pain management feature of a full body 'heating pad' is my #1 benefit from client exit polls.

post-pregnancy weight loss can be rather dramatic also.

Anyone that's either cancelled or put their tanning packages on hold due to pregnancy are a perfect potential client also.

Easily a $50-$75K addition to a salon with basic marketing.
