Paraffin Wax is a soft wax with a low melting point, which means that it melts to a temperature cool enough to safely immerse the skin.
Not only is this therapy used for softening and smoothing the skin, it also treats ailments such as arthritis by working to remove excess fluid from the surrounding tissue.
How does it work?
Paraffin treatment is a form of deep heat therapy. liquefied paraffin wax is very efficient at absorbing and retaining heat. When you apply the wax to the hand or foot, the heat transfers from the wax into the affected area as the wax solidifies. The heat increases circulation and relieves pain and stiffness.
To aid in skin softening, paraffin wax increases blood supply to the skin while also opening pores and trapping moisture from underlying areas of skin
