FACIALS

What are the benefits of a regular facial?

Facials are an important way to support and enhance the body with its natural skin maintenance and rejuvenation cycle, and keeps skin hydrated and regenerated.  The benefits are:

  • increased blood circulation under the skin

  • decreased waste under the skin that can cause puffiness and fluid accumulation

  • reduced fine lines. relieves dehydrated skin, and promotes collagen production which reduces premature aging, wrinkles and sagging

  • cleanses pores on a deeper level as extractions help to keep the skin clear and stop acne formation

  • supports an even skin tone and lightens dark spots

  • reduces and slows down the effects of aging allowing the skin the feel healthier, smoother and look for radiant

  • you get to relax and enjoy a great stress release and leave with great skin - what more could one ask?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WAXING

We wax with Nufree

 

Nufree is the gold standard in hair removal. It was developed over 25 years ago to help plastic surgeons remove hair from a patient before surgery. Here are just a few reasons why Nufree is the most effective hair removal treatment in the world:

  • Nufree is NOT A WAX and never sticks to the skin

  • Nufree is self-preserving antibacterial/antimicrobial so it is safe, clean and germ-free

  • Nufree is completely botanical and safe for the entire body

  • Nufree doesn't dry and can be erased at any time

How long do I have to let my hair grow?

Don't even think about booking an appointment unless you've gone one to two weeks without shaving or waxing and have at least 1/4" of hair. Patience is a virtue - waxing will be painful and not as effective if you haven't waited long enough!

How do I prepare for my waxing service?

With the exception of the face, it is recommended that you exfoliate the area several days prior to your appointment. Thoroughly clean the area keeping the skin moist but not greasy from heavy lotions or oils.

Does waxing hurt?

It hurts more the first time than any other time because you're pulling out 100% of the hair, your nerves are on edge, and you don't know what to expect. You will experience a quick, temporary sting that stops hurting right away. By far the worst part for most people is the anticipation and not the actual removal. Follow all the tips given and you will be fine. You second time will be so much EASIER!

Can medication affect waxing?

Yes! You CANNOT be waxed if you are taking any antibiotics such as Accutane, Differin or Retin A. Additionally, any medications that list "sun sensitivity" as symptoms will preclude you from being waxed. You should also avoid waxing while using glycolic acid, harsh exfoliants or any facial peels.

How often will you need waxing?

Everyone is different but 95% of clients come in every 4-5 weeks. Regular waxing sessions ensure that your hair grows back finer and thinner as the follicle has less grip on the hair.

What if I'm on my period?

You can but just know that you are more sensitive about three days before and after your period.

EYE TREATMENTS

To ensure the best results possible, the following are recommended before each visit:

  • do not wear makeup

  • remove contact lenses

  • let us know if you are experiencing any eye infections or irritation as this will need to be cleared up before any treatment is performed

After your eye treatment, it is recommended to:

  • ​keep your lashes dry and free of makeup for 24 hours

  • avoid using any oil-based creams and lotions for the first 24 hours (natural products are always a good choice!)

  • do not use waterproof mascara

  • do not rub or irritate your eyes
