Cosmetic paraffin treatment for hands and feet
Paraffin treatment for hands and feet supports the reconstruction of the lipid coat of the skin, protects the skin from excessive dryness, and softens the epidermis while making it more flexible. It prevents skin cracking and reduces the feeling of roughness.
Paraffin improves the absorption of nutrients from beauty masks, creams and conditioners. It stimulates microcirculation and metabolism, lubricates, nourishes and regenerates the skin. Such properties cannot be found even in the most intensively moisturizing creams
Cosmetic paraffin and its' remarkable properties
Cosmetic paraffin is transparent, and contains natural, oily, lubricating substances. It has moisturizing properties, improves and restores skin elasticity. Liquid, heated paraffin keeps warm for a long time. Applied to the skin, it forms a layer which retains moisture inside the epidermis.
The melting point of paraffin is about 42-45 degrees Celsius. This makes it slightly warmer than the temperature of the human body, which means it can be comfortably applied directly to the skin. The heat of the heated paraffin penetrates the deep tissues and increases their temperature.
Hot paraffin opens the pores and allows active substances or nutrients to be absorbed deep into the skin. As it gradually cools down, after about 15-20 minutes, it closes the dilated pores, trapping the absorbed skin care products under the skin
Indications for paraffin treatment:
- Dry, sun-damaged skin
- Keratosis and cracking of the epidermis

Paraffin treatment is an ideal way to regenerate dry, damaged skin on hands and feet. The effects of paraffin treatment are quickly visible - already after the first application. The skin becomes smoother, soft, elastic and pleasant to the touch.
