How long does your hair have to be for waxing?
We recommend 3/4 of an inch for most areas. Upper lip and eyebrows can be shorter.
What type of wax do you use?
We use hard wax on the face, underarms and Brazilian because of the sensitive skin in these areas. Hard wax adheres to the hair and not the skin, making in gentler on the skin. We use a cream based soft wax for the rest of the body.
What facial products do we use?
We use Dr. Spiller, a German Line and one of the leading European lines.
Can we submit esthetic services to 3rd party insurance?

Do I need to shave if I am coming in for laser hair removal.
Shaving isn't necessary but you can do so if you like. We always check the area to make sure there's no hair and shave if needed. Please avoid waxing, tweezing, epilating or using hair removal creams between treatments or 4 weeks prior.
As a man coming in for a facial, can I shave that morning?
We advise you don't shave 24 hours before your facial. When you shave and then get a facial your skin can become easily irritated. If you have facial hair you can still get a facial without any worries.
