Facials: Avoid exfoliating skin four days before your facial. Be ready to write down the current skincare products (and medications) you are using. Perform your normal skincare routine, with the exception of exfoliation. If that means coming in with makeup on, that is completely okay, the esthetician is happy to remove your makeup for you. There is no need to worry about your hair, it will end up looking a little wonky after your facial- we recommend booking a Blow Out service afterward so that you leave looking extra fabulous! Men should shave the morning of their facial appointment. The instant healthy glow achieved from a facial should last about 48 to 72 hours. The long-term benefits of a facial should last 28 to 45 days. To achieve ongoing skin benefits, a facial should be scheduled every 4 to 6 weeks.
Waxing/Threading: Let your hair grow! Before any waxing appointment do not pluck, shave, etc. for at least a week. Hair should be about 1/4 inch (Basically, it needs to be long enough to grab with your fingertips). If your hair is coarse, hair length cannot exceed ½ inch; if it’s too long use scissors to trim it. Due to increased sensitivity, women should avoid waxing within 4 days of their menstrual cycle. Your hair will not grow back darker and thicker- in fact, waxing/threading causes hair to grow back thinner and less coarse—that means no more prickly and irritating feeling from shaved hair regrowth! The hair color will remain the same. How long your treatment lasts depends on individual hair growth cycles, the climate you are in, and the medications you take. Generally, waxing/threading lasts from 2-4 weeks. Waxing/threading on a regular basis will actually slow down hair growth!
Massage: In the days before your massage, drink plenty of water. Do not eat just before your massage. If you have a fever, skin irritations (e.g. sunburn, poison ivy), or are in extreme pain from an injury or illness, you will need to reschedule your appointment.
