Waxing seems like a simple beauty treatment—but at Wax Spa, there's more to it than meets the eye. First off, aestheticians must be licensed to ensure safe, effective treatments, and the wax is imported from Europe. Then, there's the strict policy against recycling wax and spatulas, which ensures a germ-free salon. With their lash services, artists apply silk strands that add length, volume, and curl to natural lashlines, providing optional fills to be used within three weeks of service. Their extensions come in pre-curled short, medium, or long synthetic lashes that are resistant to wear and last up to several months with touchups.
The team complements their waxes and lash services with an array of body contouring treatments, which rely on technology ranging from ultrasound waves to radio frequencies, which is a cosmetic treatment designed to tighten skin without the need for an incision or recovery time. The treatment uses radio frequencies to uniformly heat the dermis, or inner layer of skin, to tighten and help initiate the production of new collagen. Depending on the size of the treatment area, the procedure may take anywhere from 15 minutes for a facial to upwards of an hour for a full body treatment. The salon also brightens complexions with diamond microdermabrasion, which sloughs away dead surface skin to reveal the bright, youthful-looking skin beneath it. And no matter the treatment, each team member takes a customer-centered approach to their services, and helps to cultivate a warm atmosphere that puts clients at ease.
