Shrinking Violet Body Wraps

Shrinking Violet Body Wrap is a technique that is so powerful that a 60 minute treatment can shrink waistlines by up to 2 inches. The amount of inch loss varies depending on your build and metabolism, but many people may reduce by a least one whole dress size after the first treatment. Immediate results can be seen. After the full 72 hours, you will see the maximum effect.

Shrinking Violet made by Tibby Olivier, is one of the most powerful body wrap products available in salons today. Unlike your traditional Inch Loss Body Wraps Shrinking Violet doesn’t work by dehydration but by Lipolysis, a revolutionary method to remove unwanted fat from problem areas. Shrinking Violet is a painless, effortless process that can successfully remove fat from in problem areas such as thighs, buttocks and abdomen. Lipolysis is achieved by chemical reaction and heat which permanently break down fat within fat cells. These will only reform should you continue to follow an unhealthy lifestyle.


The fat is removed from the areas you want without effort or discomfort. The Shrinking Violet oil contains 20% Hydrolysed Lecithin (the activator for Lipolysis – this is not organic) and 80% Lavender, Cypress and Juniper oils. In Laymen’s terms – the easiest way to explain how it works is to think of your Fat Cell as a Firm Grape. The Active ingredient (Hydrolysed Lecithin 20%) we use penetrates through the surface layer and targets the Grape. It then turns the inside of the Grape to liquid. The liquid (Fat) is then excreted from the body leaving the Grape looking more like a Raisin shrunk and empty. The fat you lose through this process is permanent. The Grape (fat cell) will only return to its previous state if your diet allows it to.

Unwanted fat in difficult areas such as the stomach, bottom, thighs, hips and upper arms, are a big problem. Lipolysis offers pain-free slimming and breaks down inside the actual fat cells where triglycerides are changed to free fatty acid so that they can be excreted in tissue fluid and further transported to the lymph vessels. The active ingredient continues working over the next 72 hours  providing the client follows the after care given.


Shrinking Violet is an excellent jump start to a new and slimmer you. For the fat to come back, new cells have to form that would happen if a person continued to eat excess calories.  Combine the Shrinking Violet inch loss wrap with exercise and healthy eating for optimum results. 


We recommend a series of 4 or 6 wraps for maximum results!
