Appointments

  • How do I book an appointment?
    For Karina's existing clients, please schedule your appointments directly in the Square app. Karina takes new clients as her schedule allows but still has a waitlist to which you can add yourself here. If you are a new client and would like to book an appointment with Edith, please schedule your appointments directly in the Square app.

  • I'm a new client and I'm not sure which services to book. Help.
    We recommend that all first-time clients book a New Client Skin Analysis appointment. During this appointment, we'll discuss in-depth your skin concerns, skin triggers, goals, and we'll select a treatment that is right for you. 

  • What should I do to prepare my skin before my appointment?
    We ask that all of our clients come to their appointment with a clean, makeup-free face. This is best to get the most out of your skin treatment. It is also okay to shower before your appointment.

  • How much time should I set aside for my appointment?
    You can expect to spend about 60-75 minutes for any typical service.

  • Can I work out after my scheduled services have been completed?
    No. We do not recommend that you participate in exercise immediately after your skin treatment. It is better to wait until the following day. You can choose to work out and shower prior to your appointment.

  • I'm a new potential client. How long should I expect to be on the waitlist?
    First off, thank you for your interest! We are experiencing high volumes of interest and at the moment it will take about 6 months for us to get through the waitlist.

  • I'm pregnant. Can I still receive services?
    There are treatments that we do not recommend if you are pregnant. Please contact the reception desk directly about specific services you wish to receive while pregnant.
