In our back bar, we use all non-toxic, chemical-free products which boast of some of nature’s purest botanicals. All of the products in our back bar can be found in our retail shop as well. In addition to using designated back bar products, our estheticians are “beauty chefs” and will often incorporate fresh herbs and florals, as well as powdered spices and pantry items to give your skin the most potent antioxidants and minerals.
Because every facial is customized to the client, you can’t go wrong. However, if it’s your first facial ever, we would suggest you start with a 50-minute facial. If you’re fairly regular with facials and are looking for a slightly more relaxing experience, we encourage a 80-minute as it includes additional masking, aromatherapy, and a scalp massage.
At Lena Rose Beauty, we pride ourselves on quality and employ experienced holistic estheticians to perform your services.

It depends on your level of pain tolerance as well as how impacted your extractions are. It’s not entirely comfortable, however, it’s important you keep communication open with your esthetician and ask for short little breaks if need be.
Yes and no. Because our estheticians take a more “progressive not aggressive” approach to skin care, you should notice your skin look bright, plump, and glowy. However, some pinky-ness and redness may occur depending on your skin type. With that said, signs of redness is not necessarily a cause for concern as when we have facials, our blood circulates and rushes to the surface to aid in skin health.
Our intentions are to always make you look and feel better at the end of your service, however, there is always the potential for your skin to purge after a session. Detoxification is very important which can sometimes resemble pimples and breakouts up to 48 hours after your facial. It is advised that you don’t get a facial less than 7 days before a big event to ensure your absolute glowy-ness day of!
Everyone is different, but its advised that at the bare minimum, you see your esthetician once per season (roughly 4 facials a year) but no more than once a month as your skin needs time to heal and naturally resurface.
There are varying grades of acne, and everyone’s skin is different. There are many approaches to healing acne, and it doesn’t just happen with skincare alone. However, proper skin care, techniques, and products can and will make a huge difference for all types of acne.
Yes, absolutely. In fact, men should be just as regular with their skin care as women. We offer gentleman’s facials, as well as a beard treatment, add-on.
You will be draped between sheets and blankets during your service, so you will be asked to remove everything from the waist up to protect your clothing from oils and creams.
Before coming in, it is advised that you trim your hair no shorter than a ¼-½ inch long. This allows the esthetician to easily shape and makes epilation less painful for the client.
Be sure to exfoliate the area 2-3 days before your appointment, to reduce the potential for ingrown hairs.
If you have sensitive skin and are prone to redness and inflammation, a pain reliever can be taken up to twenty minutes before the appointment to help reduce discomfort.
If you are on your cycle, you can absolutely still get waxed, just keep in mind your sensitivity level may be higher. Same goes for pregnant clients. We will keep you as comfortable as possible during your service, just know that with increased hormones, you may be more sensitive.
Avoid any excessive heat, sweating or friction for 24 hours. Keep the area clean, and be sure to use a gentle post epilation cream or astringent to keep bacteria at bay.
Keep skin protected with SPF if there will be sun exposure.
Also, avoid lakes or pools for at least 24 hours after waxing to avoid potential infection.
You should get a minimum of 1-2 weeks of fresh smooth skin. It is advised you come every 4 weeks to maintain and to slow/minimize hair growth.
Please be advised that certain medications can alter the integrity of your skin, resulting in skin lifting or peeling during a waxing service.
Please be sure to discuss medications with your esthetician prior to your appointment to determine if it will be safe for you to be waxed.
Waxing: depending on the body part, it’s just important that the esthetician can easily access the hair without potentially dripping wax on clients clothing.
Bikini waxing: if you prefer to leave your underwear on during the service, please know that there is the potential for wax getting stuck to your garments. A towel will be provided to drape over your lap for modesty.
