Do you have a Return Policy for any products?
Yes, in the event you purchase any of our spa products for home use and would like to make a return, we will exchange any products within 14 days of purchase, provided a receipt is presented. Unfortunately we cannot provide cash refunds for returned products. Instead a spa credit will be provided for any returned products to be used on any other products here at LuDawn Spa & Salon.
How should I prepare for my body waxing appointment?
Firstly, we recommend arriving 10-15 minutes early if you need to ask any questions or use the restroom. We recommend not participating in any type of hair removal for at least two weeks. Hydrate as much as possible before your reservation this aids in a more comfortable service.
We recommend exfoliating at least 2-3 times a week before visiting us. We carry Intelligent Nutrients organic products, these provide optimum exfoliation. Exfoliating 48 hours before your service is beneficial to your treatment.
To achieve maximum comfort we ask you to wear loose fitting cotton clothing. This will allow the skin to breathe and help prevent any ingrown hairs or irritations.
We ask all guests to avoid physical activities that result in sweating or makeup application that would result in clogging your pores for at least 24 hours. Clogged pores may lead to ingrown hairs or irritation.
Feel free to speak with our team members if you have any further questions.
What is the difference between Bikini Line, Bikini Risque, & Brazilian waxing?
Bikini line is the removal of hair that might peek out from beneath a modest bikini bathing suit.
Bikini Risque is the removal of most of the hair in the bikini area, but we do leave behind a shape if this what you desire. For reference we remove anything that would be exposed while wearing a high-waist bikini bathing suit.
Brazilian is the complete removal of all hair in the bikini area as well as a back strip.
