What Day Spas Have To Offer

Posted on Sunday 10 April 2011

While you might like your stylist at a hair salon, if you’d like to have other treatments then a day spa may be the best option. Day spas differ in that they have full bathrooms with showering and changing facilities for women and men. When you arrive and check in at day spas you will be handed robes and slippers to make your visit more a comfortable and relaxing experience. Hair salons will not offer such amenities, however that does not say that the actual service can not be enjoyed.

Although there are a wide variety of services at day spas, the typical services offered include massages, body treatments and skin care treatments. Some massages that are offered include Swedish, Neuro muscular, and Prenatal massages. Some body treatments that are offered include body wraps, exfoliation, and waxing. Skin Care treatments includes facial services. Some types of facials at day spas include a basic facial, deep cleansing facial and acne facial.

Other skin care treatments usually include peels. There are 3 types of peels: enzyme, Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) and Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA). Enzyme peels include pumpkin, papaya or pineapple fruit acids. Alpha hydroxy acid peels are lactic acid (good for dry skin) and glycolic acid (good for mature skin) based. Beta hydroxy acids peels are best for oily skin and includes salicylic acid. Day spas usually have cosmetics available too. Other treatments that may be available include spa manicures and pedicures.

In choosing a hair salon or day spa, what is important to note is that both day spas and hair salons should have a business and state salon licenses. All employees that are working on clients, except makeup artists, should have a state license also. Professional spa products are the norm for which estheticians and therapists have received training in their use. Employees should be able to easily identify which types of services would be best for each client’s common complaints or issues.

Knowing the regulations that govern the salon and spa industry will help to make sure that your visits to day spas will be a day to remember.
