Paraffin treatments are luxurious spa treatments that are intended to moisturize and soften the skin. Paraffin wax treatments are most often applied to the hands and feet.
Paraffin wax is a soft wax because of the paraffin oil component and melts at a lower than normal temperature. This means that the skin can be submerged in the wax without causing burning or blistering.
Benefits of paraffin treatment may include the soothing of chronic joint pain, relaxation of muscles, and improved blood flow to the treated area.
