During a paraffin dip the hands or feet are immersed into a bath of melted paraffin.  The heat from the paraffin increases the blood supply to the area being treated.  Moisture is drawn from the underlying layers of the skin, the moisture surfaces and mixes with the applied moisturizer.  This fluid is unable to evaporate because of the paraffin glove.  It is then infused back into the skin resulting in the most successful way to rejuvenate, hydrate and nourish the skin.  It also helps to relieve muscle aches and arthritis pain.


First the skin is sanitized, and then moisturizing lotion is applied and lightly massaged into the area.  The hand or foot is immersed gradually, 3 or 4 times into the warm paraffin wax creating an extra thick paraffin glove.  A mitt or bootie is then slipped over a plastic liner creating a seal to improve heat retention.  The treatment will last about 10 - 15 minutes and then the paraffin sheath will be peeled off revealing incredibly soft and moist skin.
