Vacials for Everyone

New Year, new you!  The 2020 year is well on it way and hope that everyone has a great start to the new year.  We get a lot of new clients at the beginning of the year and many of them might not know someone the services we offer.  So, for the next few months, we at Absolute Body Waxing & Spa are going to highlight a few of our services and the benefits to receiving them.

We will be focusing on Vacials for the month of February.

What is a Vacial and do you need to get one?

Vacials are great treatments for any one that suffers from ingrowns.  It helps eliminate ingrown hairs.
We all love waxing.  It makes your skin smooth, gives long lasting results and the effects keep getting better with time.  However, one of the most common side effects of waxing is ingrown hairs.  They form when the new hair can not penetrate through the surface of the skin and keeps growing inside.  Quite often they are accompanied by inflammation and comedones.  The first step that we take when treating ingrowns is a proper home care routine.  We recommend regular mild exfoliation, application of moisturizing lotions and creams and we also suggest specific products targeted to alleviate ingrown hair problem.
Sometimes the ingrown problem becomes too prominent.  This is when we resort to more aggressive methods.  A Vacial treatment is for your pubic area, similar to facial.  The main focus of this treatment is to manually remove ingrown hairs through extraction.  The steps are similar to facial but are shorter it includes: cleansing, exfoliation with steam, extraction, masking and moisturizing.  The best time to get a Vacial is a couple of days after getting a Brazilian wax.
You are a perfect candidate for this treatment if you suffer from multiple inflamed ingrowns that are located deep under the skin.  Do not let the name fool you, Vacials are recommended for male and female who suffer from excessive ingrowns.  We do not recommend this service as a precaution method, since your  home care routine should provide sufficient ongoing treatment.
