The Sweet Spa

Before Your Appointment

Sugar or Hard Wax Hair Removal

The hair needs to be long enough for the wax to hold and pull. We know resisting temptation to shave can be tough but what is tougher is trying to pull hair that is too short. We recommend hair to be roughly the length of a grain of rice. If your hair is too short, simply give us a call at least 24-hours before your appointment and we’ll get your appointment moved. 

Stay hydrated! Drink lots of water and moisturize regularly up until the day before your appointment. Healthy and hydrated skin will allow the entire hair follicle to be easily removed and to prevent future ingrown hairs. Just like a weed in a garden, the root will snap and break if the area is dry. 

Exfoliation is important but over exfoliation may cause irrational to the skin. It is important to properly exfoliate regularly and before an appointment in order to get the best service and to avoid ingrowns. We can suggest product if you need to help your skin stay its best.

Do not wear any products on the area you plan on being sugaring the day of your appointment. Clean, bare skin is best. Products may create a barrier making it difficult for the sugar to hold onto the hair.

Avoid the following for 24-48 hour prior to hair removal: working out, swimming, saunas, hot tubs. Hair removal leaves the pores temporarily open and it is important to keep sweat and bacteria from entering. 

MEDICATIONS 

 

We are unable to preform certain services for any individuals that use topical or oral prescriptions such as but not limited to:

 

 

Certain medications either topical or oral affects the whole body and can cause severe drying and thinning of the skin. There is a high risk of permanent damage to the skin if you do hair removal or certain facials while on these treatments. 

 

Our recommendation is a minimum of at least 6 months after discontinuation of these medications before receiving these services. Please let us know if you are currently, have, or plan to take any medications for your safety. Call our front desk to discuss your options.

Spray Tanning

If you plan on getting sugared or any form of hair removal including shaving do so at least a full day before your appointment. Hair removal after getting a spray tan risks the color to be removed. We do not provide tanning and sugaring appointments on the same day, if it is the same areas of skin being serviced. This prevents open pores from the hair removal from being contaminated with tanning solution.

Exfoliate the day before or day of your appointment. This is an important step to having an even color. Exfoliating off the dead skin cells will allow a smooth canvas for the tanning solution to be applied. If applied to dry, flaky skin, the color may come off in patches. 

Do not wear any products. Lotions and other products will prevent the tanning solution to be applied evenly on the skin, but rather, it will adhere to the product resulting in a patchy result. If you plan on getting your face tanned please do not wear any makeup.

Wear or bring dark, loose clothing. The tanning solution will dry within minutes on the skin but be prepared to prevent any possible transfer staining.

Eyelash Lifts, Extensions, & Tints

Do not wear any makeup on and around the eye area. A clean slate is the best bet for best results!

If you wear contact lenses please bring a pair of glasses or backup lenses or lens case and solution. Some individuals may have sensitive or watery eyes which can temporarily result in blurry vision.
