Facial Best Practices

Some people may think that getting a facial is something that is done on special occasions.  Those of us that are serious about skincare,  know that it’s more ongoing.  Although facials can be very relaxing, at Absolute Body Waxing & Spa we take the act a little more personal.  So let us all get serious about getting a facial and take time to learn a little about pre-facial best practices.

Professional skincare treatments will provide deep hydration, exfoliation and a thorough analysis of your skin’s needs and issues.  We at Absolute Body Waxing & Spa take pride in our facial services.  We use the best skincare line (Image), customize each and every facial to our clients’ specific needs, and utilize the safest practices.

There are many things one can do in order to get more out of their facial treatments at our facility.  To help individuals out, we decided to put together this quick Pre-facial check list below.

  1. Do not wear make up when arriving to your facial treatment appointment.  Our most popular facial is 60 minutes and we want to use most of the time working on the skin, not removing make up.
  2. Take pictures of the skincare products that are currently being used in the household (particularly the prescription items).  Seeing pictures helps the Aesthetician to use products that enhance the products used at home as opposed to them being counterproductive .
  3. When receiving a new medication prescription, always ask the provider  whether it affects the skin and if it’s safe to continue facial treatments/products while on the medication.  Also let the Aesthetician know if there are any precautions that should be taken.  We at Absolute Body Waxing & Spa are capable of customizing the facial treatments  in order to get favorable results.
  4. It is best (when possible) to book facial treatments in the evening and a week or so prior to any events or trips.
    1. The face may appear red and blotchy right after a facial treatment and since we do not recommend using makeup right after it is best to relax at home after the service.
    2. Since exfoliation is one of the most important steps in a facial treatment, we suggest minimizing your time outside even while using SPF to prevent unfavorable results.

For best results, follow these suggestions.  Click here to book your next facial treatment!   We are looking forward to seeing you!

Absolute Body Waxing & Spa will be closed on Thursday July 4th in observance of Independence Day.  Normal business hours will resume on Friday July 5th.  Have a safe and festive holiday!

Summer Time Wax

At Absolute Body Wax & Spa,  we strongly believe that waxing is a year round procedure and there is no particular season when you should enjoy smooth skin more than the other.  However, we do see an influx of summertime clients that are getting ready for bikini season.  We have decided to address the specifics of getting waxed in the summer and how it’s different from any other time of the year.

Your main concern when receiving a hair removal service during the hot Florida summer, is of course sweat!  If you ever talk with one of our Aestheticians, the first thing they will tell you would be “no sweating for 24 hours after your wax!”  This is rather hard to pull off with the blazing tropical heat.  In order to minimize the possible side effects, we strongly recommend wearing loose fitting clothing and soft cotton underwear (or even go commando if you’re bold enough!).  Try not to plan any outdoor activities right after your wax and wait a day before going to swimming  pools, lakes or rivers.  If you tend to sweat more than average, use some talcum powder or corn starch to absorb the moisture.

Another thing to keep in mind when getting hair removal services done, is the sun.  Waxing provides light and natural exfoliation to your skin, which results in making it more prone to sunburns.  With sun rays being extra aggressive during the summer time, there are some precautions that need to be taken.  You can always ask your Aesthetician to apply some sunblock to your face right after the waxing.  We also sell a variety of prevention care via our Image Skin Care line.  Wearing a large hat and sunglasses also protects your freshly shaped eyebrows and face.  Now for the body waxing, we do suggest safe sunbathing practices, such as staying in the shade as much as possible and using an umbrella on the beach.  Don’t forget to apply sunscreen with an spf of at least 30 and to reapplying if you are splashing in the water.

Summer is a great time  in Florida, so if you are planning on hitting the beach schedule your appointment today!

First Time Brazilian Waxing

Getting a Brazilian wax for the first time can be a scary process, we at Absolute Body Waxing & Spa understand this, and love helping our first timers out anyway possible.  It may sound intimidating and scary, especially when you have no idea what to expect, but rest assured Absolute Body Wax has your back! To make your first Brazilian wax experience as pleasant as possible, we have decided to give this quick recap of how to get ready for your first wax and what you should do to make this experience as pleasant as possible.

  • Let your hair grow out.  The length of the hair for a successful wax should be at least ¼ of an inch (0,5 cm) or as long as a grain of rice.  We suggest that you do not shave for at least 2 weeks to achieve the desired length.  We also ask our clients not to trim the hair even if it appears too long.  All of our estheticians are trained on performing the wax on longer hair.  While trimming there is a chance of cutting the hair too short which may result in uneven wax.
  • Take a warm shower prior to your service.  It will prep the skin for waxing by opening the follicles.  Do not apply lotions or any other products to your skin since it will make the surface slippery and the wax will not adhere correctly.
  • Take an OTC painkiller 1 hour prior to your waxing service.  It will help to alleviate the pain.  (Keep in mind, some medications do thin out blood which makes bleeding more likely).
  • Make sure to wear loose cotton underwear to prevent the skin from rubbing against your skin causing more irritation.
  • If you are currently being treated by a dermatologist or a physician, write down the medications that you are currently using so that we could determine whether they interfere with waxing.
  • For our female clients, we recommend to book waxing services after their monthly cycle is over. The area tends to be a little less sensitive during this time.
  • Make sure you are not booking your first wax the day before any sports competitions or trips to the beach.  Allow your skin to heal for at least 24 hours before any vigorous activities (sexual activities included).
  • Always use the services of a reputable establishment for your wax and let your aesthetician know that it is your first Brazilian wax.
  • Follow all of the post waxing guidelines provided by your aesthetician to promote faster healing and minimize possible side effects.

 

We hope that we answered all of your questions about getting waxed for the first time. If you still find yourself needing more information, contact our office and our estheticians will gladly provide you with more information. We are looking forward to waxing you! Book your appointment today and receive 20% off your first wax!
