Wholistic skincare

We are passionate about the mind/body connection and believe that in order to experience true wellness you must treat your body wholistically. Wholistic Skincare is best loved for the Brazilian/Bikini waxing services. We offer a variety of waxing mediums including European hard wax, soft vegan-based wax (beeswax free), and other hypo-allergenic wax options to provide the most comfortable waxing experience one can have. 

Our specialized facial protocols are formulated using raw, organic fruit, herbs and vegetable pulps to support the skin's natural functions. We also combine nature with science as we feature glo Professional Skincare, a clinical-based skincare line that helps correct hormonal acne, aging, and sun-damaged skin.
