Maxwell’s FormoStar: FAQ's

The Formostar is 1-hour treatment that burns up to 1,200 calories in just 1 hour. It can achieve weight loss and many other benefits, including: reducing the appearance of cellulite by elimination of toxins and waste materials; pain & stress relief; skin rejuvenation and detoxification; sports recovery and healing; and increasing natural energy levels.
Infrared is a type of light that can’t be see seen; instead, we perceive it as heat. Our sun produces most of its energy output in form of infrared energy, so it’s perfectly natural.
Each session is one hour including a 10-minute warm up period.
We recommend you drinking water before, during and after a session. This allows the body to stay hydrated and replaces body fluids that have been sweated out during the session.
This will depend on an individual’s lifestyle and their personal goals. If a person is very physically active, treatments can be as often as every 2 days. With less physically active people, a minimum of 3 days between sessions is usually recommended. More regular sessions may actually be detrimental to results. Upon achieving a particular body shape (or weight), 2 to 4 sessions a month are required to ‘maintain’ those levels.
Yes, there are 6 ‘heat pads’ that can be placed in various locations – it’s your choice! For women, the silicone pads are usually wrapped around the thighs, hips, abdomen, and arms. For men, the most common configuration is thighs, abdomen, chest, and arms (or calves). The heat pads are individually controlled, too, to ensure you’re completely comfortable throughout the treatment process.
In principle, whilst virtually everyone can gain benefit from a Formostar Far Infrared treatment, the usual advice applies. For any health-related concerns, it is recommended that clients seek their Doctor’s or health practitioner’s advice. Sessions should not be undertaken unless clients have received their Doctor’s advice where any of the following conditions exist: Over activity of the thyroid gland, cardiac infarction, cardiac weakness, constriction of the coronary blood vessels, marked high or low blood pressure, diabetes requiring insulin treatment, disturbances to the function of the kidneys and associated organs, fever, severe general infection, contact allergies, skin diseases, open wounds, newly acquired shingles, pregnancy, prescribed medicines causing increased sensitivity to physical stimulation (for example antibiotics), cases of severe varicose veins.
The weight-loss benefits are likely to increase, from combining a programme of Formostar treatments with a healthy, well-balanced diet and lifestyle.
In simple terms, the Formostar can be tailored to your needs. For instance, the heat pads can be used to target certain areas. There are recommended configurations for men and women - you can also select your own ‘problem areas’. The heat pads are individually controlled, too, to ensure you’re completely comfortable throughout the treatment process
