Paraffin wax dips are a salon treatment used for manicures and pedicures to help hydrate and rejuvenate dry damaged skin. This petroleum and mineral oil based wax product were first used in the 1950’s by doctors to help arthritis patients with pain relief. By the 1980’s it was commonplace in nail treatments and pedicures in salons as a way to help dry or damaged skin.
Here at Charisma Salon and Day Spa, we use paraffin dips in our manicure and pedicure treatments as a way to help our clients relax and repair their hand or feet. We highly recommend it during the dry winter months to keep your skin healthy and hydrated!
