Cleise spa uses a special hard wax which means less pain than a traditional bikini wax.

Microdermabrasion (Silk Peel)
Why get a chemical peel when you can opt for a silk peel? Microdermabrasion is a superficial exfoliation performed on the skin’s outer layer to stimulate new skin growth. So you can stay buffed, sun-kissed and rejuvenated.
