Body Melt, also known as Ionithermie Detox, is a spa procedure for the temporary reduction of inches. Featured today on The Doctors, Body Melt originated in France and uses a combination of clay and electronic pulse to tone key areas such as the thighs and buttocks.

A conductive clay that's enriched with natural compounds such as vegetable extracts, finely ground algae, seaweed and other nutrients is spread over the skin. The clay is then subjected to electrical stimulus which enables absorption of the clay's nutrients into the skin. The nutrients are said to detoxify fat cells and stimulate blood and lymph circulation.

Immediately following Body Melt, those treated see a reduction in size. According to, as much as 10 inches may be lost, although 1-3 is probably more likely. Patients also report a reduction in the appearance of cellulite The improvement is temporary and only lasts about 1 week. Some offices recommend several treatments, often 2 per week for 3-4 weeks to see longer lasting results. These will only be maintained with proper diet and exercise but could last 5-7 months.

Reportedly, the treatment doesn't hurt but the muscles may feel sore, similar to the feeling after a vigorous workout. Body Melt is not a weight loss procedure and the inches lost are not actual fat loss.

How much does Body Melt cost?

Body Melt typically costs between $150 and $200 per treatment.
