SPA ETIQUETTE OR SPA 101
To ensure that you and those around you experience the full benefits of Montage, we suggest the following:

  • Arrive on time. Arriving late will only deprive you of precious minutes for your spa treatment. Should you arrive late, your treatment will end on time so that the next client isn’t delayed.
  • Please turn your cell phone on Vibrate so you and the others around you can have a relaxing, quiet appointment, (ideally) with no interruptions.
  • Please be considerate of other Montage guests—no loud talking or cell phone conversations.
  • Please leave young children at home. This is your special time to pamper yourself. Don’t feel guilty! This will make you an even better mom!
WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?
If you must cancel or reschedule an appointment, as a courtesy to other guests and our therapists, 24-hour notice is required to avoid being charged 100% of the price on all treatments scheduled.
WHERE DO I PARK?
One of the best things about Montage is the convenience. We have ample free parking in front, but if those spaces are filled, there’s more free parking just around the corner in back of the building.
HOW OLD DO I NEED TO BE TO VISIT THE SPA?
All ages are welcome at Montage. Many young women start coming to Montage as teens (we just need a parent’s permission). We have beautiful and beloved clients in their 90’s and of course all ages in between.
DO YOU TAKE WALK-IN APPOINTMENTS?
Yes, if time allows.
WHAT TIME DO YOU SCHEDULE YOUR LAST APPOINTMENT?
It depends on the service being provided, but we are available Tuesday through Thursday until 7 p.m. and Friday and Saturday until 5 p.m. Our first appointment of the day is at 9 a.m., but we can accommodate an earlier appointment, if needed.
WHAT IF I’M SICK THE DAY OF MY APPOINTMENT?
Please give us a call and we will happily reschedule, without a payment penalty. We want to keep our spa and Montage staff healthy so we appreciate the heads up and will look forward to seeing you when you feel better.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF JOINING M3?
Once you experience the treatments at Montage, you’ll find yourself making monthly appointments anyway to maintain your glowing skin, relaxed body or beautiful nails. By joining the M3 Montage Monthly Membership Program, you will enjoy big savings as well as beautiful results. Having a special standing appointment set aside just for you each month is a reward you deserve and will make you look and feel better, inside and out.
DO YOU HAVE ANY TIPS FOR BEFORE AND AFTER WAXING?
What to do before your wax:

  • Allow 3-4 weeks between waxing and/or shaving. ¼-inch outgrowth is required for bikini, legs and underarms.
  • For Brazilian and bikini waxes, if your hair is long, it’s best to trim in advance, to make waxing more comfortable.
  • Female clients may have heightened sensitivity during the week prior or during menstruation.
  • Be careful before you wax: Do not use Retin-A/Renova up to 30 days prior. Do not use Accutane up to 90 days prior.

Post-Waxing Tips:

  • To keep from irritating the skin: Aloe Vera or Hydrocortisone cream can be used as a topical application, if skin in the waxed area becomes irritated.
  • Keep the waxed area clean, but do not use harsh cleansers or creams for 24-48 hours post wax.
  • No hot tubs, hot showers or baths, sunbathing or tanning for 24-48 hours post wax.

To get the most out of your wax:

  • Do not exfoliate the skin for 2-3 days post wax, then exfoliate regularly to help prevent ingrown hairs.
MEDICAL CONDITIONS & ALLERGIES
Please notify a Spa Coordinator when booking your appointments about physical ailments, medical conditions and allergies. This will allow us to further personalize your treatments. Special conditions may include pregnancy, high blood pressure, heart conditions, or other. Therapist cannot work on clients with open wounds, abrasions, etc.
HEALTH BENEFITS TO SPA VISITS

PREGNANCY & SPA TREATMENTS
Many women find that spa treatments are very helpful in relieving some pain and stress from pregnancy. Please consult your doctor with any other concerns or questions.
