Frequently Asked Questions About Woman's Relaxation Services

Massages

Will I need to undress for my massage?
This will be up to you.  Please know that during all treatments you will be draped with towels and only areas being directly worked on will be uncovered. Our therapists are trained professionals who have your comfort and well being in mind at all times.

I have a few medical concerns; will this keep me from receiving a massage?
You will be asked to fill out a massage intake form, listing any illnesses, allergies and injuries that you might have. Your therapist will discuss this with you before beginning your treatment. If you have suffered a recent injury, we ask that you consult a doctor or other health care professional before having a massage.

May I ask my therapist to make adjustments for my comfort?
Absolutely, this is your treatment and we want to ensure that it is centered on you and your comfort.  Please communicate with the staff regarding any discomfort you might be feeling as well as room temperature, sounds, smells, etc. 

Are the Therapists at the Woman's licensed?
All of the therapists are licensed and have met all state and local requirements.  You can rest assure that your treatment is being performed by a highly trained therapist.

I am pregnant, are there any available treatments for me?
Yes, massages are available for pregnant women past their first trimester. This is an enjoyable way to relax and ease tension created by your ever-changing body. In addition to a massage, you may also be interested in our pedicures, manicures, facials, etc. 

Can I purchase any of the products used during my treatment?
Yes, products are available for purchase online now or at the Woman's Center for Wellness.            

Waxes

Are there any precautions I need to consider before I receive a wax?
Yes!  If you are using any topical medications such as Retin-A, Differin, etc., you should discontinue use 7 days before your wax.  If you are using Accutane we recommend waiting 6 months AFTER stopping your medication.

How long after I wax will it take for the hair to rejuvenate?
Generally 3 to 4 weeks

Are there any side effects on the skin after a wax?
The dead skin cells are removed to reveal incredibly smooth skin.  The waxing may cause the skin to sting and if so, a soothing cream may be applied. You may experience redness or bumps that generally disappear in a couple of hours.

What is the difference between a Brazilian, Specialty, and a Basic Bikini Wax?
The Brazilian removes hair from the entire area. The Specialty leaves a strip in the center and the Basic will follow the bikini line.

Facials and Skin Treatments

Why should I have a facial?
A facial will cleanse and brighten your face. Regular facials will nourish your skin leaving you with a fresh, clean, young, glowing appearance.

How often should I have a facial?
The best results are achieved when facials are scheduled every 4 to 6 weeks. That is the amount of time it takes your skin to regenerate.

What are the benefits of a chemical peel?
A chemical peel reveals smoother and brighter looking skin. Additional benefits include: smoothing of fine lines, help with dry skin, aid in the control of acne and help to even out pigmentation.

How often should I get a chemical peel?
We recommend once a week for 6 weeks.

Are there any precautions to consider before receiving a peel?
Yes!  If you are using any type of topical medications such as Retin-A, Differin, Renova, etc., you should discontinue use 7 days before your peel. If you are using Accutane it is best to consult with you doctor before having a peel.
