A Comprehensive Spa Etiquette Guide for your Perusal 

A spa day is a perfect way to decompress, whether you’re getting together with friends and family, or simply feel like some well-deserved pampering time. Let us guide you on the right Eleven11 Laser + Skincare spa etiquette. 

  • Being late 

As a matter of politeness, please arrive at your spa at least 15-20 minutes early for your appointment. This will give you enough time to check in slowly, change into something more comfortable, and unwind a bit before your delightful spa treatment. 

You desire to enjoy this particular delight to its fullest. Unfortunately, rushing and being late will cut into the time allotted for your treatment, leaving you feeling stressed, apprehensive, and unable to fully enjoy this joyous moment. So that the following guest’s service is not delayed, your treatment must conclude on time. Your table time is when it is scheduled. Sadly, you’ll be billed in full if you are tardy to your scheduled day spa. 

  • Changes to or Cancellations of Scheduled Appointments 

Spa services would be frequently scheduled months in advance. You often need to offer 24-48 hours’ notice to modify or cancel an appointment to avoid being charged. Consider understanding the appointment and cancellation of spa alteration procedures. If not, they could charge you the entire sum. 

  • Walk-ins 

The majority of day spas try to accommodate walk-ins. Although it may not always be possible, it is usually preferable to schedule an advance appointment if you need a certain time. 

  • Dress Code 

It is advised to wear comfortable, casual clothing that you can put on and take off quickly. You can’t always carry your robe and slippers inside spas. Find out in advance if they will let you have treatments while wearing your underwear or swimwear, but be aware that they cannot be held accountable for any harm or stains to these items. Many day spas offer you disposable undergarments, robes, and slippers while you’re there to protect your apparel. Again, always do your research first. 

  • Modesty 

Being undressed is the ideal situation for receiving therapy or another type of bodywork at a spa. However, if it bothers you, they would never demand you to take off your clothes. Only dress as comfortably as you can! Please don’t be afraid to speak out while you are still dressed if decency is a concern. You may also enquire about spa services that you can receive while still wearing your clothes. In the “craft of draping,” most therapists have received training. 

Check to see if the spa will give you the towels, robe, and slippers you’ll need for your visit.
