FAQ

A:  A bikini wax is the area outside brief panty lines, Brazilian is the entire personal area, front and back and including buttocks, and “Not quite a Brazilian” is close to, but not personal area.
A:  Depending on the results you are looking to achieve, i.e. a Microdermabrasion or Chemical Peel Series is spaced 2-3 weeks apart – six treatments in all. The basic rule for spacing facial treatments is every 4 weeks to once a season.
A:  We suggest making an appointment and you and the aesthetican will decide what would be the best facial treatment for you.
A:  This is a personal choice and for some, threading is the only choice due to medication or sensitivity. Wax is quick and efficient, not for those who are using over the counter or prescription acne or anti-aging medications. Threading is preferred by those who react to waxing or are taking medications just mentioned.
A:  Ten days to two weeks growth or ¼ to 1/3 inch.
A:  Soft wax is for large body areas, i.e. legs, bikini and back. Hard wax is for sensitive and delicate areas, i.e. face, underarm and bikini.
A:  We suggest the Sun and Sand – a complete body exfoliate to ensure even and deep penetration of the organic mineral tan. Expect great color for five days, and then a gradual fade. To extend color retention, use the facial tanner and tan extender every two to three days at home.  Expect a natural sun-kissed glow, but we do offer Intensive bronzing.
A: Lash Applications are temporary, using glue that can be removed with warm water and cleanser. The lashes used for this application would be strips, flairs and individuals. These take minutes to apply. Lash Extensions are applied with surgical glue that will keep the extension on for the life of the lash it is attached to.  A full set takes up to ninety minutes to apply, and a fill-in every two weeks is recommended, which is about a 45-minute appointment.
A: Applied like traditional nail lacquer but cured under a UV light, this manicure can last up to 3 weeks, every day keeping that just-manicured shine.
A: If it is your first visit at Oliver West Day Spa, arrive fifteen minutes early to fill out a questionnaire and become familiar with our Spa. All other guests should arrive ten minutes earlier so you have time to make your next appointment and use the facilities, if needed.
A: A manual exfoliation (scrub) is recommended 2-3 times a week.
A: Keep any mask on for 15-20 minutes, rinse with warm if water if required, and apply moisturizer.
A: Shave the night before your facial appointment – shaving that day could cause sensitivity.

A: Yes you can, but it will be removed during the facial. Only for all lash services do we require that you come with clean lashes.
