To ensure that you obtain your desired appointments, we recommend scheduling your appointment as far in advance as possible to ensure availability. To accommodate your desired date we require a credit card at the time of booking to guarantee your reservation. We keep this information as part of our cancellation policies and only make necessary charges to your account on the date of your scheduled service. We provide the details of our cancellation policy below.
Cancellation Policies and Fees:
Your spa treatments are reserved especially for you. We value your business and ask that you respect the spa’s scheduling policies. Should you need to cancel or reschedule, please notify us at least 24 hours in advance.
- All appointments need to be scheduled online. You can do this at www.puresthetics.com
- There needs to be a credit card held on file in all accounts
- There is a 24 hour cancellation policy
- If you do not reschedule within this time frame (24hrs), you will be charged 50% of your appointment. You can reschedule by clicking on the links available in the confirmation/reminder emails.
- We recognize the time of our clients and staff is valuable and have implemented this policy for this reason. When you miss an appointment with us, we lose not only your business but also the potential business of other clients who could have scheduled an appointment for the same time.
When you schedule your appointment with us, you agree to these policies. All services require a credit card or gift certificate to guarantee a reservation so, please have your credit card and gift certificate ready when booking. We will not be billing you unless there is a cancellation or no show. Upon checkout, guests may choose their method of payment.
Acne Bootcamp Clients:
This program was created to garner you the absolute best results for your skin. Acne takes time and extreme consistency if we are to heal your skin and clear your acne. The clients who see the absolute best results in their skin are the ones who stay on schedule with their follow up facials (every 2 weeks) and use their home care regimens exactly as prescribed. We need to follow up every 2 weeks until we get the inflammation under control, once that is achieved, we can space the facials out a bit more to 3 weeks, and then regular facial maintenance of 1x a month. This process can take 3-6 months or more depending on your specific acne type.
If appointments are not kept on this 2 week follow up schedule, there is much more extraction and work to be done, we are falling behind in progress and will not get the results we are looking for.
I will allow you to reschedule 1x if you are not able to meet for your 2 week follow up, but if you need to reschedule multiple times and I have not seen you in 4 weeks, you will need to reschedule for a full Acne Clarifying Treatment Facial.
This is because we will need extra time and we will almost need to start over with the progress we were making.
My passion is truly to help you clear your skin and it is my professional opinion and experience that this is the best process to get there. Let’s continue to work together to reach these goals.
We kindly ask that you turn your cell phones and pagers to vibrate upon arrival and to remember to speak in your very soft spa voice once you enter the studio. Please inform your therapist should you need to make a phone call so that you may do so without disturbing other guests. Cell phone use may affect the length of your spa services.
Prices and Services:
Prices and services are subject to change without notice. We will do our best to keep our clients up to date on any changes that may occur but encourage all clients to inquire about pricing and available services when booking your appointment.

You may not redeem Gift Certificates for cash. Please mention the Gift Certificates when making your appointment.
Series of Treatments:
Once you purchase any spa treatment series, we are unable to process any returns or reimburse any payment transaction. We will, however, exchange them for other products or spa credit of equal value.
We do not add gratuity to the price of service or spa packages, customary tipping runs 15% to 20% but is, of course, at your discretion. You may tip the therapist in the room or upon check-out at the front desk with cash, check or credit card.
We ask that you, please arrive 10-15 minutes before your appointment time. We will do our best to accommodate late arrivals. However, the length of service may be adjusted so as not to interrupt the scheduled appointments of other guests. The full price of scheduled services will apply, so please plan accordingly.

How To Prepare For Your Brazilian Waxing
BRAZILIAN AND CALIFORNIA MAINTENANCE = RETURNING EVERY 4-6 WEEKS
Most importantly before any bikini waxing, shower please!! Appointments after the gym or work are very unpleasant for your technician. If you are not able to shower, wipes come in very handy.
For the best wax experience possible, the hair must be at least 1/4 – 1/2 inches or 12-15 days growth. This is especially important for first time waxers who have been shaving to ensure all the hair grows out from under the surface.
It is a good idea to get into the habit of exfoliating the bikini area with a salt or sugar scrub to get rid of a lot of dead skin cells that build up on the surface. This will also help keep ingrown hairs at bay.
Try to remain calm and relaxed. Anxiety about the waxing can definitely contribute to it being more painful. Advil or Motrin can help take the “edge” off. Keep in mind that the results will definitely out weigh the process.
Please remember to arrive to your appointment clean. Sanitation is a top priority here at Puresthetics.
Waxing Services For Men
We offer Brazilian waxing for men. This is a “professional” service. If at any time the technician feels uncomfortable or that you are not taking the service seriously, we will have to ask you to leave. Unfortunately there have been a few issues in the past that have not fallen in line with how Puresthetics operates.
After waxing with our exclusive wax formula, you shouldn’t have much discomfort at all. A little redness is absolutely normal and usually goes away within an hour or so.
For those who are prone to ingrown hairs or get them from time to time, we recommend PFB. PFB is an excellent combination of 3 active ingredients, formulated to reduce any swelling, kill bacteria and exfoliate at the same time. PFB is available in the studio.
