The most famous and traditional hair-removal technique that spas offer is waxing. The experts will put hot wax on your skin and then press a cotton strip directly onto the wax. They immediately pull off the strip leaving the excess hair to come off along with the cotton strip. It can be done anywhere on the body like the back, chest, the eyebrows, the legs, the upper-lip, and even the bikini areas.

3. Facial Treatment-

These treatments involve scrubbing, cleansing, steaming, application fo masks, nourishing, peeling and even massaging the delicate facial skin. Facial treatments help in removing dull and flaky dead cells of the uppermost layer of the skin. The massaging helps in improving blood circulation, cleating flighty pores and also rehydrates the skin. Most facials emphasize curing issues on the skin as a pimple, acne, dark circle and even the puffiness beneath the eyes, which other types of facials focus on the overall health of the skin.
