    Is there an age limit? I am 17 and I have been looking at doing this for my national guard requirements that I need. I need to slim up fast so I can enlist.

      Yes, you need to be 18. Otherwise your parent needs to sign for you!

    Is this worth doing just once?

    • Tropical Tan March 18, 2014 at 5:38 pm #

      Yes, even if you do it just once it will help jump start your metabolism, it can burn up to 1200 calories, it will decrease joint pain, detox your body, tighten & rejuvenate your skin, & you can lose inches! If you have never tried it before at Tropical Tan, your first one is buy one get one free. Thank you for your inquiry, God bless & make it a great day!

    How exactly does this help acne or stretch marks if it doesn’t touch the skin?

    • Tropical Tan April 3, 2014 at 10:59 pm #

      The infrared heat detoxes the body which helps clear up acne, it also tightens & rejuvenates the skin. The wrap is wrapped around your body so that the heat can penetrate from the inside out. Hope that helps. It works, my stretch marks have went from 1/2″ to thin lines!!!

    How often can you do it? Or what is the recommended time between each treatment

    • Tropical Tan April 3, 2014 at 11:08 pm #

      Because you can dehydrate, I’d only do twice a week at most. You need to be drinking a lot of water. Water not only keeps you hydrated, it flushes the toxins out after the infrared heat penetrates & breaks up the toxins & fat cells. It also jump starts your metabolism & works for up to 48 hours after your session.

    If you’re under 18 and need your parents to sign for it, do they have to come in with you and sign it or can you take home a paper and have them sign it and bring it back?

    • Tropical Tan February 23, 2015 at 9:50 pm #

      You need your parent to come in with you & sign & you will also need to read & fill out our Smart tanning for teens.

    So do you get hot like when you tan or what

    • Tropical Tan February 23, 2015 at 9:54 pm #

      Yes, you get hot during an infrared body wrap, it is infrared heat. It burns up to 1200 calories, tightens & rejuvenates the skin, helps relieve joint pain, as well as detoxes the body. If you have never done one before, your first one is buy one get one free.

    How much are body wraps

    • Tropical Tan March 17, 2015 at 2:38 pm #

      As a new client the first one is Buy one get one free, $65. Plus you get a free 10 minute Aqua massage with it. We also have packages, the more you purchase the more you save. Right now we have our show green save green March special going on, you can save 25% off packages when you wear green. There is a video that I recommend you watch on our website, & I believe if you click on the infrared body wrap it will take you to the prices. I absolutely love them! Have a great day & God bless!

    Do you offer payment plans on the wraps, like you do for tanning packages or is it only to be paid up front?

    • Tropical Tan April 27, 2015 at 5:20 pm #

      Hello Amy, No we don’t offer payment plans on the infrared wraps, they need to be paid up front. If its your first time you get buy one get one free. Have a great day & God bless!

    I had lap-band surgery a year ago this last March. I have skin from the weight loss. Would this be safe for me and would it help with my loose skin?

    • Tropical Tan November 13, 2015 at 2:30 am #

      Yes it will help rejuvenate your skin. I’d recommend buying a package & doing 1 or 2 a week until you reach your desired goal. We also sell Arbonne firming body cream that will help the process as well.

    Can you do a wrap after a spray tan?

    • Tropical Tan November 13, 2015 at 2:26 am #

      Not the same day, if you want to to a spray tan & a wrap you should do your wrap on one day then prepare your skin & do the spray tan the next.

  12. Michelle March 20, 2016 at 8:51 pm #

    I see that its OK for a person under 18 can do this as lonng as a parent brings them and signs. My question, since its mostly16 and 17 yr olds asking, is it OK if I bring my 14 yr old to do with me? She has most the things you llist it helps. And I think she could benefit from it.

    • Tropical Tan March 23, 2016 at 4:04 pm #

      Yes, as long as you come with her & fill out the release form & parental consent. She needs to be drinking plenty of water the day before, day of, and days following. You need to call and make an appointment, she will need to wear comfortable cotton sweats and a change of clothing. We only have one infra red body wrap, so you cannot do it together, but you can do one at a time. Have a great day & God bless! Tropical Tan

    Sorry for all the questions, but… How fast does it help with stretch marks? And do you have to keep doing it repeatedly to keep your stretch marks gone? Does it help with loose, extra skin and stretch marks within the first time? And are there any dangerous effects this can have?

    • Tropical Tan January 1, 2017 at 10:15 pm #

      Yes it helps with loose extra skin & results vary, most people see immediate results with inch loss, however it may take some time on stretch marks, like I said, results vary. As far as dangers, you must be well hydrated, you cannot have metal in your body, you should not tan in the same day. If you come into the salon we have a paper that explains more, but you should always consult your doctor if you have any medical concerns.

  14. Brittany August 23, 2016 at 2:38 pm #

    Do the stretch marks and excess skin stay away after a few uses? Or is this something you have to continue to do or else it eventually comes back? I guess I should say are the results temporary or permanent????

    • Tropical Tan January 1, 2017 at 10:00 pm #

      Hello Brittany, results vary with everyone. I personally used the body wrap & my skin tightened up & the stretch marks shrinked , my results stayed until I gained weight back several years later. So basically as long as you treat your body right & don’t gain your weight back, the results stay. The body wrap Rejuvinates & tightens your skin back up, it detoxes the body & works at the cellular level to break down fat cells. It’s amazing & I love it! Again, results vary with each individual person. The best thing to do is get a package so you can be consistent & get the results you are looking for.

    So i have metal in my elbow, does that mean im not a candidate for infared wraps?

    • Tropical Tan January 14, 2018 at 2:51 pm #

      It’s best to check with your doctor. The wrap goes around thighs, bottom, tummy, & upper arm. The heat penitratez to the bone. I’d recommend avoiding wrapping your arms. But as I said, check with your doctor first. Thank you, God bless & make it a great day!
