If I submit an appointment request through the "appointment request" button on your website, does that reserve an appointment?
Your appointment is not confirmed until the front desk staff contacts you directly or you receive an email confirming all details of your appointment with a personalized message from the front desk staff. This email will tell you that your request has been confirmed or has been rescheduled (if your requested time/date is not available) followed by a message from our staff.
Is it okay to put makeup on after my facial?
For best results, try to let your skin breathe and let the treatment soak in for at least 8 hours. You can apply makeup if you need to, but be mindful that your pores are open and your skin may be more sensitive to foundations and powders.
What do I need to know before receiving a massage?
Wear comfortable clothing to your appointment. Before your massage, your therapist will ask preliminary questions to determine your wellness goals and consult with you about problem areas or past injuries. The therapist will leave the room while you undress, remove clothing to your level of comfort. Lie on the massage table underneath the sheet, your entire body will be draped during the session except for areas being massaged at that time. Your therapist will check on pressure and comfort throughout the session, if you're uncomfortable at any time let them know immediately. After the massage, the therapist will quietly leave the room. Feel free to take your time getting up and dressing, you will be in what we call "Massage Fog" so avoid wearing difficult clothing to put back on! Make your way to the front desk when you are ready to check out.
What is the difference between all of your bikini waxes?
The difference in the bikini waxes is the amount of hair that is removed during the waxing. This includes the mons pubis, inner and outer labia, and anal regions.
Bikini – only 2 inches is removed along the bikini area.
Brazilian Bikini – all of the hair is removed and a narrow strip or triangle is left at the top.
Full Brazilian – all of the hair is completely removed.
This will be my first Brazilian wax. What can I expect? Will it hurt? Will I have irritation and redness?
Waxing will sting a little bit depending on your pain tolerance and skin sensitivity. However, if you maintain a regular waxing schedule the pain decreases significantly each visit. Some irritation and redness is common for the first 24 hours after your appointment due to the histamine reaction caused by the removal of the hair by the root. However your skin will desensitize over time and your hair will grow back lighter and finer!
Is it okay for anyone underage to receive treatments?
Bella Riley’s will cater to underage clients with a signed consent from their guardian.
Should I tell my therapists if I’m using any prescription medicine?
Absolutely! This information is very important for all treatments. It will be held in the strictest of confidence. Please inform your therapist of any and all medications that you are currently taking prior to treatment.
