A Guide to Perfect Timing: Planning Spa Treatments Before Holidays & Events

Picture this: a sun-kissed beach, a tropical breeze, and you, looking absolutely radiant. With that much-anticipated holiday or special event just around the corner, it's time to plan your spa treatments strategically for maximum impact and minimum stress. Let's dive into the details, shall we?

Laser Hair Removal: Timing is Everything

First things first, let's talk laser hair removal. It's the secret weapon against unwanted hair, but timing is key, especially when the sun is shining. Aim to schedule your last laser hair removal session at least a week before and 4 weeks after your hot holiday. This ensures that your skin has enough time to recover, and you'll reduce the risk of sun sensitivity or irritation. After the treatment, keep those sun rays at bay and use a high SPF sunscreen religiously.

Facials for a Glowing Complexion

Now, let's focus on achieving that coveted glow. A Glo Facial or New Skin Facial are most recommended for a refresh right before your event! If you're considering additional facial treatments like a chemical peel, microneedling, or other more intensive procedures, plan them in advance. These treatments may require a week of downtime for redness or peeling to subside, so schedule accordingly.

Teeth Whitening: Flash That Pearly White Smile

Who doesn't want a flashy smile? Schedule your teeth whitening session a few days before your big day for optimal results. The whitening effect can continue to enhance over the next 24 to 48 hours following your treatment as the whitening agent continues to work. This timeframe gives you the confidence to dazzle everyone with your whitest, brightest smile.

Spray Tan: The Golden Glow Without the Sun

For a sun-kissed tan without the sun damage, schedule your spray tan 1-2 days before your holiday or event. This gives the tan time to develop fully without any risk of smudging or streaking. Remember to exfoliate and moisturize beforehand for a flawless application.

Brows That Wow

Book your Brow Lamination at least 48 hours in advance! For the initial 24 to 48 hours post-treatment, avoid getting your eyebrows wet, including steamy environments like saunas and hot showers. Refrain from washing your face and applying makeup or skincare products to allow the lamination process to take full effect.

Luscious Lashes

A Lash Lift & Tint has similar aftercare to brows. Avoid water and steam for the first 48 hours, along with avoiding makeup application. If you have an upcoming event, schedule your lash lift and tint a few days prior. Plan your makeup routine accordingly, following guidelines on when you can start using makeup again after the treatment. The beauty of a lash lift & tint is that no makeup is necessary for perfect lashes!

In conclusion, by strategically timing your spa treatments for that upcoming hot holiday or special event, you can confidently showcase your best self and leave a memorable impression.
