Why Is The Spa Pedicure More Expensive?

Professionals do go to great lengths to find technicians who can give you a special experience. They can give you beautifully shaped nails and suggest the perfect color for your skin and the season.

Their work lasts -- no chips or bubbles. And they should have a very nice manner. A spa pedicure usually has a few extra steps -- an aromatic salt rub, or hydrating mask or paraffin dip -- that can make it last longer and feel more luxurious.

Paraffin treatment for Hand and Feet

Paraffin wax treatments are luxurious spa treatments that are intended to moisturize and soften the skin. Paraffin wax treatments are most often applied to the hands and feet as components of manicures and pedicures respectively.

Paraffin wax is a softer wax because of the paraffin oil component. Because it is a soft wax, it melts at a lower than normal temperature. This means that the skin can be submerged in the wax without causing burning or blistering. Spa specialists melt blocks of paraffin wax in special vats. During paraffin wax treatments, beauticians have their clients dip their hands or feet into the melted wax one or more times to coat the skin in a generous layer. The hands or feet are then wrapped in plastic, or some other non-absorbent material and left to "soak" in the layer of wax for up to half an hour.

Paraffin wax treatments are particular popular because they provide a great deal of moisture to dry and cracked skin. During paraffin wax treatments, the skin is bathed in warmth, which helps the pores to open and the skin to soften. Then the paraffin oil can enter the skin to nourish and replenish it. Because the treatments are meant to be soothing, calming oils are often added to the wax in order to add a dimension of aromatherapy to the experience. Once the skin has been allowed to soak in the wax and the layer has hardened, it can be pulled off in one solid piece. Because the wax is soft and contains oil, it does not become very stiff and does not adhere to the skin. Rather, after a paraffin wax treatment, the skin is left slick and soft.

People who experience seasonal dry skin often find paraffin wax treatments to be helpful and relaxing preventative measures. Dry, cracked heels and knuckles can make cold weather unbearable. One or two moisturizing paraffin wax treatments can help a great deal.

Brazilian Waxing


    Most waxings occur in a private room with a door. You remove your pants & underwear & lie on a table with clean paper or sheets.


    Because you only need about a quarter-inch of hair for the wax to grab onto, your waxer will start by trimming your public hair to the right length.


    The best waxers are fast, which means less discomfort for you. The waxer will dip a waxing stick into a pot of hox wax & then spread it onto your skin & hair. She will then apply a cloth strip over the still-warm wax, pressing firmly so the cloth, hair and wax adhere to one another. When the wax has cooled, she will pull the strip off, in the opposite direction of your hair growth, pulling the hairs out by the root.


    Most likely, your waxer will tweeze any stray hairs.


    Waxing usually starts in the front & moves toward the back. You will likely have to move around in all sorts of odd positions in order for the waxer to do her job.


    Once the waxing is over, the waxer will spread soothing lotion over the waxed areas.

Bikini Waxing

To perform a bikini wax, a female technician applies warm wax to a woman's pubic area, places cloth strips atop the wax, and then removes them when the wax hardens by pulling the material off the skin. Often a small thatch of hair is left above the vagina, sometimes in the shape of a heart or triangle.

How is Brazilian Waxing different from Bikini Waxing?

Basically, with the Brazilian, hair is removed in the front, back & everything in between. Most of the time a 'landing strip' is left in the front, but some clients opt for everything removed.
