While I am not a newbie to the spa world, there are treatments/services I have yet to try. However, if you’re still a spa virgin, there is no reason why you shouldn’t be aware of the services that might be offered. As a general rule, ensure that the technician performing the service is fully licensed and that the tools being used are cleaned. Other than that, sit back, relax, and enjoy.
Body treatments: Estheticians will help to radiate the skin through deep cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing. This rids the body of the dullness and dryness that can set in from lack of hydration. Options include sugar or salt body scrubs, seaweed wraps, or a mud bath treatment.
Facials: Estheticians are able to cleanse and treat the skin as well as perform extractions or use tools like the ultrasonic to bring out facial radiance. Facial options range from a hydrating, clarifying, or antioxidant facial. You can also receive a back facial, which exfoliates, hydrates and cleanses the skin, in addition to microdermabrasion, or a chemical peel.
Massage therapy: A professional masseuse will relax you through touch. A gentle massage with aromatherapy oil will restore your body and mind to balance. Options to choose from include stone, deep tissue, sports, and Swedish massage. Each has varying intensity and a different goal in relaxing the body.
Nail care: Nail techs will work through your manicure or pedicure to exfoliate and hydrate the skin while attending to your nail bed to give them the care they require. Mani/Pedi options can range from a warm cream, paraffin, or milk and honey treatment. Nail extension through acrylics or gel is also an option.
Waxing/threading: Technicians who are experienced in hair removal and the elasticity of the skin will remove unwanted hair, leaving the skin beautiful and smooth. Whether you prefer waxing (hot wax applied to the area) or threading (a thread is used to remove the hair directly from the root), you can have hair removed from the face, lip, chin, eyebrow, legs, arms, bikini area, and more.
