Nufree “wax” is the next generation of hair removal… for starters, it’s not actually wax.
When our spa gets requests for male or women hair removal, we want to be able to offer our clients the best new products and services.

Men are visiting spas, skin care facilities and medi-spas for a wide variety of services, and now there are so many skin care products specifically designed for men’s thicker skin.

All About Skin Spa, we create an escape from the hectic pace with the aid of soothing background music. We started this music concept when we opened our spa in March 2015.
