Most Common Questions
Q: Will I break out after a Facial?
A: It is not uncommon to experience purging after having a facial. Purging occur when your skin is deeply congested with blackheads or whiteheads underneath your skin. If this is your situation, you may experience some breakouts, but be assured they won’t last long.
Q: How often should I get a Facial?
How often you get a facial depends on the current condition of your skin, the health of your skin and your skincare goals. For proper maintenance we recommend a facial every 3-4 weeks. At this frequency, we can monitor your skin throughout the seasons and help you maintain a healthy and glowing complexion.
Q: At what age should people start getting Anti-Aging Facials?
We recommend Anti-Aging facials for both men and women age forty and older. 40+
Q: How soon will I see results from my Facial?
A: Depending of the facial treatment chosen some people see results immediately. Others, require a series of treatments to be completed before substantial results are achieved. For instance, If your skin has more advanced, long-term needs such as skin aging, acne or hyper-pigmentation caused by hormonal fluctuation or sun damage, your results may not be immediately visible. However, your skin will feel different after the first facial and the skin health will continue to improve as you follow the advice of your professional skin therapist. Results will be achieved if you are committed to your series of treatments and continue your home care regimen.

Q: How long or short should my hair be for body waxing?
A: The hair should be at least 1/2-inch long for best results. If your hair is longer we recommend trimming it down a little. It is very important to avoid shaving the area before or between waxing appointments, as this will interrupt the process and stimulate the hair growth again.

Q: Can I drink before my wax to help with the pain?
A: Dont drink and wax. Alcohol tightens your pores making waxing more painful. If your tolerance to pain is low we recommend taking a over the counter pain reliever at least one hour before your wax appointment.
Q: What are the benefits of waxing?
A: Waxing pulls the hair out at the root so the hair takes longer to grow back. Waxing reduces hair growth when performed every two to four weeks. The more you wax, the less hair grows back. Your hair will grow back finer and sparser. Your skin will get a gentle exfoliation. Waxing makes your skin less prone to inflammation.
