Frequently Asked Questions

ultimate body applicator

What is the Ultimate Applicator?
The Ultimate Body Applicator is a non-woven cloth wrap that is infused with a powerful, botanically based formula to deliver maximum tightening, toning, and firming results in as little as 45 minutes! It continuously hydrates for firmer, smoother, more youthful-looking skin, and reduces the appearance of cellulite and skin slackening.

How do I use the Ultimate Body Applicator?
The Ultimate Body Applicator comes in a versatile shape that can be applied wherever you choose to see results, such as the stomach, sides, back, upper arms, thighs, or lower legs.
To use the Ultimate Body Applicator, simply open an individual Ultimate Body Applicator package (four included in each box of Ultimate Body Applicators), remove the Ultimate Body Applicator cream-infused cloth wrap, and unfold it. Place the cream-infused side of the wrap against your skin on the area of your body where you wish to see results.

How does the Ultimate Body Applicator work?
While many body wraps simply cause water loss, the Ultimate Body Applicator uses a botanically based cream formula that, when applied to the skin, gives you tightening, toning, and firming results that last. The botanical ingredients help to deeply hydrate and nourish the skin while reducing the appearance of cellulite and redefining the appearance of your body’s contours. These cutting-edge ingredients work to give you visible results in just 45 minutes, while other ingredients in the formula continue to work over the next 72 hours, leading to progressive results.

How often can I use the Ultimate Body Applicator?
We recommend you use a new Ultimate Body Applicator once every 72 hours. The formula in the Ultimate Body Applicator works progressively, giving you continual results for 72 hours after use. Each individual Ultimate Body Applicator can only be used once and should be discarded after use.

How long should I leave on the Ultimate Body Applicator?
If it is your first time using an Ultimate Body Applicator, we recommend that you only leave the Ultimate Body Applicator on for 45 minutes to test your skin’s sensitivity to the natural ingredients. For best results, use Defining Gel twice a day in between your Ultimate Body Applicator uses.

Can I wear the Ultimate Body Applicator overnight?
Just 45 minutes is all that is necessary, but you can wear the Ultimate Body Applicator longer. If it is your first time using an Ultimate Body Applicator, we recommend that you only leave it on for 45 minutes to test your skin’s sensitivity to the natural ingredients.

Can I use more than one Ultimate Body Applicator at a time?
Ultimate Body Applicators are intended to be used on one area of the body at a time. The Ultimate Body Applicator targets the specific area where it is applied, so using one Ultimate Body Applicator at a time on one area of the body will allow your body to better absorb the formula more effectively and, consequently, see the best results because its effects are being targeted to one specific area.

What about for arms and legs? Is it okay to wrap them at the same time?
You may use two Ultimate Body Applicators on areas such as the arms or legs (one on each arm/leg) in order to promote symmetrical results.

What size is the Ultimate Body Applicator?
Each Ultimate Body Applicator is approximately 13” x 21” and comes in a versatile shape that can be applied wherever you choose to see results, such as the stomach, sides, back, upper arms, thighs, or lower legs.

Is this just water weight loss?
Absolutely not! This is not a water weight wrap. The results from a full application (4 wraps) are real and can last from 2-6 months depending on your lifestyle habits. You can place the wrap anywhere on your body except the face.

How much water should I drink when I use the Ultimate Body Applicator?
We recommend that you drink up to half of your body weight (in pounds) in fluid ounces of water daily. Staying hydrated is key to helping you see maximum results with the Ultimate Body Applicator.

How long do the results from the Ultimate Body Applicator last?
While results from the Ultimate Body Applicator are lasting, you can counteract the results from the Ultimate Body Applicator by eating poorly and not regularly exercising (as is true with any weight loss or body contouring results). Applying Defining Gel, which can help improve skin’s texture and tightness, between Ultimate Body Applicator uses can help ensure that you maximize and maintain your results.
