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.
