Why do I need a facial?
Receiving a thorough facial will serve not only to deep cleanse, exfoliate, hydrate and replenish your skin but will provide you with the opportunity to have your skin analyzed by a professional Aesthetican who has the experience necessary to "read" your skin's needs. Your skin is the largest organ of your body and it needs to be cared for like your heart or kidneys.
This varies from person to person depending on their skin's needs but in general, every four to six weeks is ideal. The skin takes about 28 days to regenerate new skin cells. Consistent facials will benefit the skin bringing balance and health to those new cells. In cases of active acne or heavily clogged skin, we may recommend more frequent facials until the problem subsides.
I like to keep my skin care routine simple. Do I need to buy a lot of products?
Most of us want an easy skin care routine, therefore we recommend the basic essentials - a cleanser, moisturizer and sunscreen. Once you are comfortable with the basics and feel you want to expand your routine, we will suggest products like an eye cream, exfoliant, glycolic/retinol, serums or masks.
What is a lash perm?
It is a semi-permanent soft curl to your upper lashes that lasts about 8-10 weeks. It takes about 45 minutes and is safe and pain free.
The hair on my face really bothers me, can I wax my whole face?
Yes. Many areas of a woman's face can be waxed including brows, cheeks, sideburn area, upper lip and chin. We use a gentle and calming wax, specifically designed for the face.
Do you wax men?
Yes. Just about any area that we wax on women can be waxed on men. The beard area however, can be challenging, as the hair is typically extremely coarse and can be painful to wax.
Will waxing make my hair grow back darker and coarser?
This is a myth and is contrary to what actually happens. Over time, as the hair is continually pulled from the follicle, the hair becomes weaker, more refined and lighter in color.
Is there anything I should do or be aware of before I am waxed?
If you are using any kind of retinol, such as Retin A, it is important that you discontinue use for 3 -5 days prior to facial waxing. Very recent sun exposure can make your skin more sensitive to waxing. You absolutely cannot wax any part of your body if you are currently on Accutane and it is recommended that you refrain from waxing for 3-6 months after finishing the medication.
