What to Expect at a Spa Salon When You are Expecting

May is the month when we celebrate all Mothers and how much they mean to us. This month at Absolute Body Waxing & Spa, we wanted to focus on expectant mothers visiting our facility. Pregnancy is a special time in every woman’s life. We welcome all expectant mothers at our spa regardless of how far they are in their journey so we wanted to take a moment to answer any possible questions you might have before scheduling your appointment at Absolute Body Waxing & Spa.

Waxing services: Expectant mothers can receive all waxing services even Brazilian waxes.  It is believed to be safer than shaving during pregnancy. As your body changes shaving becomes more inconvenient and you have higher chances of cutting yourself or getting razor burns. Shaving creams and gels can disrupt the natural pH balance of the private areas which can then cause irritation. Receiving a Brazilian wax from a skilled and experienced professional will eliminate those risks. Generally, receiving a wax during pregnancy will not be more painful than usual if you come in during the recommended 4-6 weeks’ time frame. To ensure the most comfortable experience, please notify your esthetician that you are expecting ahead of time so that we can ensure the safest and most comfortable waxing experience for you.

Facials and facial treatments: Getting a facial is a great way to relax and unwind while adding benefits to your skin. At Absolute Body Waxing & Spa, we use the most advanced skin care products available on the market. It is very important that you mention to your esthetician that you are pregnant so that they can customize your facial choosing the safest and most beneficial products. Although certain cosmetic ingredients like AHA and/or BHA (acids) and treatments like chemical peels have not been proven to be safe for expectant or lactating mothers and should be avoided, there is still a wide range of facials that can be performed. Enzyme peels and microdermabrasions are safe and effective services that can be performed on anyone. Our Image Skin Care line carries the most gentle and potent products for home care use as well.

Nail services: It might be uncomfortable to take care of your toenails while you are pregnant so let Absolute Body Waxing & Spa Nail Technicians take care of that for you! We utilize the safest resin bowls for our pedicures. They do not have jets which may harbor harmful bacteria and viruses.  Our resin bowls are easily cleaned and sanitized to eliminate any chances of cross contamination. We also use the highest quality of nail products by Keyano Aromatics, Pure Fiji and OPI; furthermore, all of our tools are sanitized with hospital grade cleansers. Nevertheless, we ensure the most pleasant and safest nail experience for all our clients!

Lash services: Lash enhancements are generally safe for everyone. However, they do require the client to stay still in the supine position with their eyes closed for over 2 hours for a full set of lashes. For your comfort, we do offer an elevated bed.  Many of our clients find that it is quite relaxing and use the opportunity to take a quick nap, however if you are not sure that you will be capable of laying down for such a prolonged period of time, you might want to wait until after you give birth.

We hope that we answered all the questions you might have about visiting our spa while being pregnant. If you still have any doubts or need more information, feel free to contact us by clicking here and we will gladly provide you with more details. We look forward to seeing you at our spa!

The Winter Dos and Don’t of Skin Care

We at Absolute Body Wax came across this interesting article about the winter dos and don’ts of skin care. Although we do not get much of a winter in Central Florida, it is important to maintain your skin in Florida’s cooler weather. Check out our Image Skincare line the next time you pop in. At the end of the blog, you’ll find the original link to this article.

If it isn’t the Blizzard of 2015, it’s freezing temperatures — and both are messing with our skin. The life seems to just get sucked out of our pretty faces this time of year, leaving us with dull, dried out and dehydrated skin. Luckily, there’s always a miracle beauty product to combat Mother Nature’s wrath, and here is a little refresher on the dos and don’ts of winter skincare.

Do

Carry hand lotion at all times. Dried out skin on the hands is common and very uncomfortable, so when you’re not wearing gloves, keep them moisturized with your favorite lotion.
Hook up the humidifier. Heaters are notorious for sucking the moisture out of skin. Keep the mister flowing overnight, so you’ll wake up with soothed and hydrated skin.
Boost your skincare routine. We’ve discussed trading in a harsh cleanser for a more gentle cleansing balm, but don’t stop there. Layer on a serum booster — like one with hyaluronic acid — to increase skin’s hydration.

Don’t

Take long, hot showers. The heat from a longer than usual steamy shower causes skin to lose its oil barrier fast, causing itchy, dry skin.
Skip the body lotion. To remedy flaky skin, reaching for the lotion post-shower is a must. It’s one of those steps that is easy to overlook, but you’ll be glad you did it once your skin gets the relief and moisture it needs.
Over-exfoliate. We’re all for a scrub down (or even a peel!) to remove those dead skin cells and reveal that glowy skin. But overdoing it will irritate and chap the skin, so proceed with caution.
