Spa Services Policy
Arrival, Late Arrivals, Cancelations, No-Shows, Deposits
We hate to be so tough, but due to the high amount of No-Shows, this long time policy created in 2014 is being strictly enforced as of January 2nd, 2017. We have so many great guests that can't get serviced when we don't limit the booking privileges. So if you understand and feel this policy is fair, we look forward to servicing you, too. Go ahead and start your booking!
- Be sure to read the information and tips about your service on this site and on the booking page to be prepared for your service.

The Difference Between an Express Facial and a Regular Facial
The express facial will get you a goodprofessionalexfoliation without any extractions or treatments, masks, steam, massage, and multiple serums. There is also an express microdermabrasion where you get just the diamond-tip microdermabrasion exfoliation and go straight to the finish with one serum and a sunscreen- no treatments, masking, etc. So although you give up the many benefits of a full service treatment, these are still good options for a quick glow or a professional exfoliation.
Our Most Common Services Explained
Threading:A cotton thread
is pulled along unwanted hair in a twisting motion, to trap hair in a mini
lasso, and lifts hair right out of the follicle. The concept is basically the same as when you take a rubber band off of your wrist. The rubber grabs on to the hair and twists it out by the root as you take the rubber band off of your arm. The thread is much much finer, but this is what gives it the same grip on individual hairs (and its much faster than the rubber-band concept).
The Most Common Questions We Get About Spray Tans
Q: Why do I have to wait 8 hours before I shower?
A: The active ingredient in spray tan (DHA) does not start developing for about 2 hours. The color you see when your tan has been applied is "instant bronzer" and is not much more than make-up. It is a color guide to let the technician know they sprayed you evenly. Spray tan can continue to develop for up to 24 hours, and this is how you gradually get darker. We hit the ideal color at about 8 hours.
