Prolonging the Benefits of Your Treatment

Aftercare instructions to prolong the results of your spa visit


Prolonging the Effects of Your Massage

  • After your massage, drink plenty of water through the next two to three days
  • Eat light foods and try to rest after the treatment
  • Do not engage in any stressful activity if possible. If working out at the gym, it is not recommended to lift weights after a deep tissue massage
  • Enjoy the application of oils from the treatment as they continue to moisturize your skin
  • Moist heat (i.e. hot water packs) and ice can be used alternately for 10 minutes on areas of soreness to heal the areas where deeper massage work was performed
  • Soak in a hot bath with Epsom salts (pictured)
  • It is not uncommon to feel soreness after a massage. The massage therapist has uncovered an area where there is a lot of tension. Alternating hot and cold compresses on the area of soreness will help, as well.

Prolonging the Effects of Your Facial

  • Drink plenty of water after your facial
  • It is not recommended to apply make-up right after your facial, it may affect the texture of your skin (we find people break out, it seems, from applying make-up right after their facial)
  • For an even fresher start, swab all of the things you handle every day: the computer, the mouse, phone, tv remote, fridge handle, microwave handle, steering wheel, etc. Handling your face after handling these objects could bring about break outs and clogged pores
  • Change your pillow case. Start with a fresh pillow case every week. Products from hair and make-up residue can settle on the skin
  • Always wear an SPF to prevent further sun damage
  • Start with one or two product recommendations from your esthetician as you begin a skin care regimen
  • Refrain from picking any blemishes as it may cause scarring to the skin
  • Keep your skin well moisturized; it makes for easier extractions during your facial

Prolonging the Effects of Your Wax

  • Any redness caused by waxing usually goes away by the end of the day
  • Take lukewarm showers for two days (as opposed to hot showers) after your wax
  • No exfoliating on the area that was just waxed for two days
  • After two days, you can go back to your regular temperature showers
  • Start exfoliating with a body polish or loofah on the area the was waxed
  • If you see ingrown hairs, we have an array of products that will exfoliate the dead skin that traps the hair in the follicle. The Brazilian Wax Starter Kit (pictured) can help.
  • It is best not to shave in between your wax visits, the hair will come in short and stubbly making your next wax service painful
  • If you come in contact with direct sunlight, including a tanning booth, you should wear an SPF
