If there’s one thing the veteran waxing technicians at High Brow Waxing Boutique know for sure, it’s that clients hate pain. That's why they use Cirepil professional-brand wax, whose soy and beeswax ingredients are designed to ease hair shafts from follicles with as little irritation as possible. Afterward, they educate clients on aftercare to minimize skin irritation and stave off the attention of envious dolphins.
The 60-minute facial treatment uses Dermalogica ChromaWhite TRx safe skin-care products to brighten skin by balancing areas of uneven pigmentation commonly caused by hormonal imbalance, UV exposure, or pregnancy. This facial is perfect for anyone who desires a healthier appearance, skin clarity, improved cellular pigment production, or 500 golden duck eggs. First, a customized skin analysis is given to determine your features' individual pigmentation. Next, a gentle double cleansing efficiently exfoliates to scrub away grub and skin-cell-peddling gummy bears. Finally, a hydrating mask made out of vitamin C serum is applied while an aesthetician gently massages your shoulders and whispers tender compliments to your future face.

Enzyme-based exfoliants prep faces for a thorough scrubbing at the hands of a rotating brush, and Clarisonic’s Opal Sonic infuser carries anti-aging serum deep into pore’s recesses.
