Are you new to the beauty world and want to know before you go? Or, do you have questions about treatments, procedures, or how to tip? We want to make your experience relaxed and enjoyable, so if you don’t see your question below, give us a call at 515-822-3493.
1. Please arrive 5-10 minutes before your scheduled appointment.
2. Many of my services require consultation, please make arrangements in advance.
3. We will also ask you for a basic medical history, such as allergies and contact information. Please know, we do keep all information confidential between you and your provider.
Waxing, skincare, and injectable treatments are popular, and our calendar fills up fast. Please schedule your appointment well in advance if you have a specific need for a particular date and time. We will always try to accommodate your last-minute needs but encourage pre-scheduling. You may also request a courtesy call if a desired day and time becomes available by contacting Kylie at 515-822-3493.
Please note that your late arrival will determine the length of your treatment or whether you will be able to be seen at all. We are very punctual with our appointments. Your service will end on time so that the next guest is not delayed. If you are more than 5 minutes late, your appointment will be rescheduled. You will be considered a no-call no-show without a phone call, per our policies. Please see our annual attendance policy.
If you need to cancel your appointment, please call us at 515-822-3493 at least 24 hours in advance to avoid fees. You are welcome to reschedule your appointment up to 8 hours in advance. Please see our annual attendance policy.
Your treatments are performed in a private room. We want you to feel relaxed and at ease. It is just you and your provider in your room and you will not need to undress completely.
Yes, please inform us if you have any special needs or allergies. While we review your information, it is important that you let us know prior to treatment. We will be happy to accommodate you in any way we can so you will have a pleasant experience. However, if you are pregnant, have a heart condition, or have high blood pressure, services that include the application of heat are not recommended. Please consult your physician first.
Please fill out all consent forms prior to your appointment, as it has important information including potential risks and contraindications.
We accept the following forms of payment: gift cards, cash, Apple Pay, AMEX, Discover, Visa and MasterCard credit cards, and bank debit cards. Payment is expected at the time of service.
Gratuities are welcomed and appreciated on any skin care and waxing procedures. We do not allow tipping for any medical procedures. (ie. Injectables, Botox, Filler, and Threads.) While tipping is certainly not required, it is appreciated and directly reflects your view of the service you received. The customary gratuity for spa services is 18% to 20% of the cost of the service.
If you are on Accutane, please let us know prior to your appointment. If you are having an acute health condition, such as shingles, other herpes viruses, staph infections, etc. please contact us at 515-822-3493. If you are experiencing any other acute health conditions that may affect your appointment, please contact us.
For waxing, please do not shave for two weeks before your appointment. Your hair needs to be the size of a grain of rice or a ¼ inch. Please refrain from trimming as well. You will need to exfoliate the area to be waxed five days prior to your appointment. Please do not use Retinol prior to waxing.
For skincare, do not use Retinol or acids prior to your appointment. If you have had Botox, Filler, or Threads less than two weeks prior to your appointment you will need to reschedule. This could displace your filler, threads, etc.
For injectables, please know that you should not do this prior to a special event. Bruising could be a side effect. Please refrain from facials two weeks after your visit. Botox will take 2-14 days to set and your filler and threads area could take up to two weeks for the swelling to go down. Touch-ups may be needed after the two weeks.
You will receive a fully-detailed post-procedure information sheet with all of this information. For future planning, after your Botox, Filler, and Waxing, it is not recommended to lay flat, get a massage, or work out immediately after services.
At this time, we do not offer men’s intimate waxing. Most studio treatments are gender-neutral.
We require parental consent for any of our services for those under 18. We do not perform intimate waxing on anyone younger than 18, regardless of parental consent.

It all depends on your body and your hair growth. It can be anywhere from three to eight weeks. You will want to grow your hair out to be 1/4-inch long or around the size of a grain of rice before you come in for another appointment.
The first time getting waxed in an area hurts the most but it gets less painful each time after. For a more comfortable wax, we recommend taking ibuprofen and avoiding caffeine on the day of your appointment.
We recommend staying out of the sun for 24 hours after a wax. For sunbeds, it is advised that they are avoided for at least a week after your wax. 30-45 SPF should be worn in general but especially after any skin or waxing service.
Yes! This is completely up to the client and their comfort level but it does not bother us at all. You may be a little extra sensitive during this time but it is entirely up to the client.
Not everyone peels after a chemical peel. It is a side effect but does not happen to everyone. If you do peel, great! If you do not peel, that is great too! However, if you do peel, do not pick at your peeling skin!
After a chemical peel, your skin will be very sensitive to the sun, so use a sunscreen with at least 30-45 SPF and try to limit sun exposure for at least a week. Avoid heavy exercise for two to three days. When washing your face, cleanse gently, and use a moisturizer to help with the peeling.
When you're sunburned, your skin becomes dehydrated and sensitive. Please contact your provider to see if we can customize the service for you or if we need to postpone.
Exfoliate your skin five days before your waxing appointment to remove dead skin cells. Make sure your skin is freshly washed (and dry!).
It is recommended that you do not shave between waxing appointments. If you're on a consistent four-week wax cycle you won't need to!
Too much caffeine and/or alcohol causes your skin to be dehydrated and sensitive (too much alcohol can even cause signs of rosacea!), so we recommend limiting consumption of these two beverages before your appointment.
