  • For Brazilian and bikini waxes, if your hair is long it is best to trim so that the waxing is more comfortable.
  • Female clients may have heightened sensitivity during the week prior or during menstruation.

Be careful before you wax:

  • Do not use Retin A/Renova up to 30 days prior.
  • Do not use Accutane up to 90 days prior.
  • Do not use peels (glycolic, AHA, etc.) or dermabrasion on the waxing area up to 24 hours prior.
  • Do not drink alcohol heavily or sunbathe up to 24 hours prior.

POST-WAXING TIPS

To keep from irritating the skin:

  • Aloe Vera or Hydrocordisone cream can be used as a topical application if skin in the waxed area becomes irritated.
  • Keep the waxed area clean, but do not use harsh cleansers or creams for 24-48 hours post wax.
  • No hot tubs, hot showers or baths, sunbathing or tanning for 24-48 hours post wax. Sorry.. Don’t mean to spoil your fun!

To get the most out of your wax:

  • Do not exfoliate the skin for 2-3 days post wax, and then exfoliate regularly to help prevent ingrown hairs.

What is a Skincare Treatment? Is it Beneficial?

Skincare treatments are becoming one of the fastest growing services and becoming more

and more popular. Even with their popularity there are still people who don't know what they are or how

beneficial they can be for the skin.

Most people grew up thinking that skincare treatments were just for the very rich or just to be pampered.Skincare

treatments are the most important thing you will ever do for your skin! During a treatment, a trained, licensed professional

will assess your skin. After assessment, they will choose the correct treatment for your particular skin issues and

skin type. They will then consult you with specific instructions for home care. The following is a breakdown of a

basic general treatment. There may be steps eliminated or added depending on which treatment service

the client chooses.

The general facial treatment includes the following steps:

  • Cleansing and Clear: The cleanser cleans the skin and removes dirt, bacteria and cosmetics. Clear helps wash
  • away soap residue, leftover makeup, dirt, oil and dead surface skin cells. It is also really helpful in tightening pores, balance pH levels, control oil, improve skin tone, and speed up cell turnover to reveal younger, healthier skin.
  • Skin Analysis: Inspection of the skin to identify any and all skin issues.
  • Exfoliation: Use of Manual, or Enzyme agents to sloughing off dead skin cells and promote cell turnover.
  • Extremely important for all skin types.
  • Steaming: This process helps soften clogged pores, black heads and acne. This prepares the skin for extractions.
  • Extractions: This step is extremely important to unclog pores and clear out acne to allow pores to heal and tighten.
  • Massage: This is probably everyone's favorite part of the facial. The facial massage is extremely beneficial and
  • therapeutic. It will relax tense facial muscles, while it increases blood flow which brings blood flow and oxygen to the skin. This kills anaerobic bacteria responsible for break outs. It also is helpful for Rosacea and other sensitive skin conditions involving chronic skin inflammation. The lymphatic drainage, pressure point stimulation and aromatherapy also help with detoxification and oxygen flow. A facial massage should be at least 10 minutes ( for acne skin) but ideally 20 minutes for optimal results.
  • Mask: There are many varieties of facial masks. Each one has its own unique benefits. Your skin care specialist will pick
  • the one that will give you the greatest benefits for your skin type and needs. The facial mask is applied and left on for 10-20 minutes depending on the mask. It is an awesome opportunity to relax and let the mask do its job.
  • Serums: Serums are an amazing way of target specific nutrients into the skin. Most common are Vitamin C complex,
  • Hyaluronic Acid and regenerative skin serums. They must always be used under the moisturizer and an important part of anyone's home skincare regiment.
  • Moisturizers: Moisturizers are your last defense to protecting your skin from the environment. All while hydrating and
  • nourishing the skin.
