VLS FAQ's

Tips for a Great Spa Experience

 

How should I prep for a wax?

 

Pre-Waxing Tips

• Do not shave or wax for at least 3 to 4 weeks prior to your treatment.

• Female clients may have heightened sensitivity during the week prior to or during menstruation.

• Limit your caffeine intake the day of your waxing service. Caffeine stimulates the nervous system

and increases sensitivity.

 

Before your wax, please DO NOT USE....

• Retin-A/Renova for at least 30 days. • Use Accutane for at least one year. • Use peels

(glycolic, AHA, etcetera) or dermabrasion on the area for at least 24 hours.

• Consume excessive amounts of alcohol or sunbathe for at least 48 hours.

• Use self-tanners, exfoliants or moisturizers the day of the service – they can cause irritations to the

sensitive hair follicles that are open after waxing.

 

What about after I get waxed?

• Minimize skin irritation by applying aloe vera or hydrocortisone cream to the treated area.

• You may wash the waxed area, but refrain from using harsh cleansers or creams for 24 – 48

hours.

• Stay away from hot tubs, hot showers, hot baths, sunbathing and tanning for at least 24 – 48

hours.

• Prevent ingrown hairs by avoiding exfoliation for 2 – 3 days and then exfoliating the area regularly.

• Avoid shaving in between waxing treatments.

 

I’m curious about getting a peel — tell me more.

Peels can have a transformative effect on your skin but, you need the right preparation.For this reason, VLS does not performed peels on 1st time guests. If you are interested in receiving a peel, and have never visited VLS before we recommend our New Client Let's Get Acquainted Service.  A full consultation and treatment plan (which may include peels) is performed as a part of this service.

Lash Service Policies

Client's eyelashes are to be completely cleansed and product free at time of any lash service (I.e lash extensions, lash lift, tint, etc). If lashes have any form of residue or product build up the Lash Bath service will be REQUIRED (and the fee will be applied).
