The wax should take about 15-30 minutes. After the waxing is over she should use a cooling gel or an ingrown hair inhibitor. Also look and make sure your waxer got all the hair off. If not call her back in and show her what was missed, a good waxer should always want you to be happy with the outcome. After 24 hours use a sugar based exfoliant on the waxed area to prevent ingrowns from forming. Be careful not to use a salt based these are often times to abrasive for that area of skin. Usually you will be ready for your next wax in four weeks. This wax should be less painful and quicker because the hair should be growing more sparse then before. So remember ladies, make sure you have a licensed esthetician or operator doing your service, exfoliate 24 hours after with a sugar based scrub, and go back regularly for your touch up. Do not exfoliate before your wax! These often times can thin our the skin to much before your service and the skin can be lifted if the Waxing and Skincare by Celeste is using strip wax.

Apart from some laser hair removal treatments which look at here now, There are the myriad of treatments and therapies available, one of their newest, the BioRadiance Facial, is certainly one of the most unique, indulgent, and healing treatments we’ve encountered. The high-performance customized facial incorporated eco-conscious skincare with the tradional vitality that we love about The Mandarin Oriental Spas.

My exceptionally skilled technician, La Juana, who had an aura of zen-like calm about her, immediately assessed my skin’s specific needs and utilizing the world’s most potent healing botanicals, she brought out a vibrant glow that I haven’t seen in far too long.



The 80 minute treatment began with organic seed oils and whole plant products that gently cleansed and exfoliated for balance while it also stimulated cell renewal, and provided antioxidant protection. What I really loved about the facial is that it included their signature Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage—a treatment akin to a natural face-lift, reducing puffiness and firming the skin. The results were immediately visible and I nearly bounced out of the Spa, inspired by my youthful, healthy and radiant skin!
