Paraffin Wax Hand Treatment

There is nothing better than when someone compliments you with, “Wow, you have soft skin!”. It’s a nice pat-on-the-back to have someone notice how hard & well you take care of yourself. Of course, there isn’t just one fool proof way to achieve such soft skin, and every person is different, but Paraffin Wax treatments is a pretty good start!


Paraffin wax isn’t talked about enough! Not only does it work as a great moisturizer for healthier & softer skin, it’s also a fast-acting, drug-free, and versatile, heat therapy for arthritis joint pain relief. Here at Schenden’s Med Spa, we use this treatment on your hands, feet and even in facials.  This wax treatment acts as a thermotherapy, or heat therapy, which helps heal by increasing the blood flow, relaxing your muscles and reducing the stiffness in joints all while leaving your skin silky smooth & smelling fabulous!


How it works on your hands is you dip your hand into the paraffin wax bath 2-4x, then a wax baggy is placed over your wax covered hand & an oven mitt over the top of that. This locks in the heat & moisture while the wax does it’s magic. You may feel a little silly with two oven mitts on your hands, but don’t worry, your aesthetician will be more than happy to help if you need anything while your hands are otherwise occupied! You will have to keep these mitts on for at least 15 minutes. This is why it’s a great thing to add onto your Pedicure or other treatment you might be having at the spa!


Call us today to schedule your treatment & never hesitate to ask during your pedicure if you could have this treatment added on. You won’t be sorry!

Men need pedicures too!

Today’s society is appearance driven for both men and women. Women are no longer the only people wanting to look younger and well maintained. Men are working later in life and are faced with a competitive workforce. The days of just a razor, hair gel and dumbbells are gone. Men are seeking the treatment room. The Top 5 minimally invasive procedures for men are Botox, Microdermabrasion, Laser Hair Removal, Chemical Peels and Laser Skin Resurfacing. Men are also seeking general grooming such as pedicures, manicures and waxing. Feet take a beating with standing on them all day long. They are a breeding ground for bacteria, dead skin and calluses. Your feet carry stress too.

Ask yourself: When was the last time you trimmed or really cleaned beneath your toenails? When did you last scrub the bottom of your feet to get rid of any dead skin or calluses? It is easy to think of pedicures as a fluffy spa indulgence—but most importantly they are relaxing and necessary for foot health! You should also take into consideration the hygienic benefits of actually paying close attention to your feet. Benefits of a pedicure include:

       Improves foot health

       Reduces bacteria

       Eliminates foot odor

       Prevents ingrown toenails

       Relieves stress

       Improves the look and feel of your feet

What separates Schenden’s Medical Day Spa from the standard nail salon is that we provide a private room for a relaxing treatment. Men are sometimes intimidated or embarrassed to go to a salon or spa that has rows of pedicure chairs filled with women. At Schenden’s Spa you are the only one in the room with your nail technician. Our unique pedicure bed will allow you to recline and place your feet in a footbath. We encourage you to disconnect from every day stress an technology and just relax. Stop neglecting your feet. Call today to schedule your pedicure. Your feet will thank you!
