Your options during the appointment are a strapless bikini top and bottom, one piece, bottoms only (we do carry disposable thongs), or nothing at all (women only). Always wear loose, dark clothing after your appointment so as not to rub off your tan.





Teeth Whitening

How often should I whiten my teeth?


Whitening can be done every 6-12 months depending on lifestyle. Habits such as smoking, daily coffee drinking, daily red wine drinking would be reasons that one may wish to whiten every 6 months. Ones that do not have these habits may find just once a year sufficient.




What method do you use to whiten teeth?


We brush the gel directly on your teeth. No strips or trays are used. This allows for custom treatment and a very low chance of any sensitivity as the product does not come in contact with the gums. We provide this treatment under a cool blue LED light.




Will whitening work if I smoke?


Yes! However, we do always recommend one follow up treatment (at half price) scheduled 2-4 weeks after your inital session, to further lift those heavy smoke stains.




Can I whiten with braces on?


Definitely! Our brushes easily get in and around those tracks. It is a great idea if you have had, or will have your braces on for a great length of time. We recommend coming in once they are removed to get it done in it's entirety as well.




Will my teeth hurt?


This is the most common concern we hear! There is approximately only a ONE percent chance of sensitivity. Our most nervous clients that have had previous sensitivity experiences have had no issues with sensitivity and even came back for the option follow up treatment!









Lash Extensions

Can I shower with lash extensions?


Please refrain from exercise, swimming and showering for 24 hours after your lash appointment. After that period, the adhesive used to apply your extensions is cured.




Do lash extensions ruin your natural lashes?


No! If applied correctly and properly, they are safe and do not ruin the health of your natural lashes. Be sure not to rub your eyes or tug or pull your extensions as this can cause lash loss and damage your natural lashes. We only apply lashes with length and weight that your natural lashes can safely hold.




How long will my new lashes last?


Your new lashes will last approx 2-3 weeks before requiring a fill. This depends on your skincare routine and your own natural lash cycle. Regular fills keep your lashes looking full.

Will my facial hair grow in thicker and darker?


No! There are two types of hair on the human body; terminal and vellus hair. Terminal hairs are the thick pigmented hairs that grow by the influence of hormones (legs, armpits, scalp etc). Vellus hairs are the fine transucent hairs usually found on a woman's face, back or chest. Unlike terminal hairs, when vellus hairs are cut they grow back with the same thickness and length as before, only with a blunt tip and are expected to return in approximately two to four weeks post procedure.
