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. 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 long. 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.
