Spending a day at the spa is an excellent way to relax and unwind. Doing so can also help you look and feel your best. If you want to visit Colibri Day Spa, you may have some questions. Here are the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions:
A facial is a professional treatment that cleanses, purifies, and beautifies the skin on the face and neck. Facials are the most popular treatments performed by estheticians. They are an excellent way to care for your skin. They also help you feel very refreshed. We recommend you receive a facial every four weeks, but your esthetician may suggest a more frequent schedule depending on your skin’s specific needs.
A mini facial lasts about 30 minutes. However most clients get a 60 to 90 minute facial treatment. You don't have to do much to prepare for a facial, but you may want to not schedule anything right after. A facial removes your makeup. A facial treatment will make you look and feel young and beautiful. You can expect to feel very relaxed and at ease. Your esthetician understands not only how to care for your skin, but also how to create a soothing environment. A facial includes makeup removal, cleansing of the skin, skin analysis, exfoliation, massage, extraction, and application of products.
Having a routine facial can help you age with grace and beauty. A professional facial will help prevent acne, reduce wrinkles, rehydrate your skin, and balance skin tone. If you are ready to receive the highest level of skin care, a facial at Colibri Spa is the perfect choice.
You can have a facial once per week if you’d like. Most of our clients have facial treatments every 2 to 4 weeks.
Getting a facial can be one of the best investments you can make. To keep your skin looking young and healthy, it is important to be consistent with your daily skin care routine. Be sure to properly cleanse and moisturize at least twice per day. And don’t forget the sunscreen.
Microdermabrasion is a type of exfoliation. When you receive microdermabrasion at Colibri Day Spa and Beauty Shop, we use high technology and safe tools to remove dead surface skin cells and start cellular turnover. Microdermabrasion began in the 1980s in Europe and was introduced to the United States in the late 90s. It is noninvasive and device-driven, making it technologically advanced and comfortable. It is one of the most popular services at day spas across the country. People seek microdermabrasion to remove dead skin cells, stimulate blood circulation, to revitalize collagen production, and to achieve smoother younger-looking skin.
Acne is the most common skin disorder, with about 85 percent of Americans experiencing it in their lifetime. While it is a common problem for adolescents, adults can experience it as well. Acne most often appears on the face, back, and chest. To treat less severe cases of acne, you can visit an esthetician at Colibri Day Spa. Our team will evaluate your skin to determine which treatments are most suitable for you. We use professional cleaning products that will cleanse and disinfect your skin, clearing away oil, bacteria, and dead skin cells. Consider trying the Hydra-Oxygen Facial and the Deep Pore Rescue Facial. High frequency and LED treatments can also be added for the best results.
Rosacea is another common skin disease. It causes various degrees of swelling and redness, primarily on the face. There are four grades of rosacea, ranging from mostly redness (grade one) to symptoms affecting the eyes (grade four). You can receive professional rosacea treatment for lower grades with an esthetician. At Colibri Day Spa, we can create a skincare plan specific to your rosacea. We use professional skin care lines designed specifically for individuals with rosacea to make sure each treatment is as safe, comfortable, and effective as possible.
At Colibri Day Spa in Sarasota, we have treatments designed with aging skin in mind. Our treatments can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and discoloration. Some of the treatments you can receive when you visit us include facials, microdermabrasion, and chemical exfoliation.
A professional skin care routine will greatly improve your skin tone and prevent signs of aging over time. Your skin will become more radiant and youthful looking. With regular facial treatments - you will always look your best. It will boost your level of self-confidence. When you look good, you feel good.
We recommend exfoliation every 3 to 4 weeks. At Colibri Spa, we offer premium treatments – including the Dermaplaning and Microdermabrasion Facials. If you exfoliate at home, please don’t over do it. It can cause skin problems and breakouts. The best rule is to be gentle, and avoid stripping the skin of its natural balance.
A chemical peel is another type of skin treatment for the face and neck area. A chemical peel is a safe treatment that dissolves the outermost layer of skin cells. When this layer is removed, a fresh and younger layer is revealed. This can help with a range of skin concerns, including the evening of skin tone, improving skin brightness, mild scarring, acne, sun damage, and aging.
Using a high quality eye cream on a regular basis (every night) can eliminate circles and puffiness. As an effective treatment, we recommend Dermalogica Stress Positive Eye Lift, or Dermalogica Intensive Eye Repair. Both of these products work very well. They are available for purchase at the spa, and at our online store.
During our facials, we target the areas just under the eyes. As we age, our tissues lose collagen and elasticity. Having a facial can correct and effectively treat dark circles. For a home care product, Dermalogica Super Rich Repair is an excellent choice.
RF Microneedling is a great way to boost collagen levels, tighten skin and remove fine lines and wrinkles. To learn more about our RF Microneedling services, click on our website link here.

Yes. Just be sure to wait at least 48 hours after receiving your injections. For a Microdermabrasion Facial, or Hydra-Oxygen Facial, we recommend postponing for two weeks.
Yes, absolutely. To tell the truth – all men are missing out. Having a facial is so relaxing and healthy for the skin. Tell your boyfriend or husband to join you for one of our amazing facial treatments. He will love it! As for having a beard, our estheticians work around these areas to make sure he receives a thorough and complete moisturizing and cleansing. And don’t forget – a foot, arm, neck and shoulder massage is included with each facial service.
Dermaplaning is an exfoliation service using a specialty tool to scrape away dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz). You will feel immediate results - smoother skin and a brighter complexion.
At Colibri Spa, we recommend Dermaplaning treatments every 3 to 4 weeks.
Absolutely not. It is painless and quite relaxing.
Dermaplaning leaves the skin incredibly smooth and baby soft. It allows for greater penetration moisturizers and serums. And applying make-up is so much easier.
Yes, but it doesn’t grow back darker or thicker – this is a myth. Any vellus hair will return over time the same as it was before.
After your Dermaplaning treatment, avoid direct sun exposure and wear sunscreen. Don’t engage in strenuous exercise. Refrain from using a washcloth, - use your fingers to gently cleanse your skin and then pat dry. An no make-up for the first 24 hours.
Waxing is intimidating to some, but don't worry! When you visit Colibri Day Spa & Beauty Shop, you are in good hands. Our professional team of estheticians is highly skilled and gentle.
When you receive a wax, warm wax is applied to the area where you wish to have hair removed. Hard wax is used on delicate skin, such as the face, underarms, and bikini area. Soft wax is used on other areas of the body, such as the chest, back, arms, and legs.
Waxing your hair, rather than shaving, reduces hair growth when performed at a regular 30-day interval. Waxing pulls hair out by the root, so the hair grows back softer, thinner, and finer. The more often you wax, the less often hair grows back.
Brazilian waxing is a type of waxing for women that removes all pubic and labial hair from front to back. It leaves a sleek clean feeling, and it can help you wear a bathing suit with increased confidence. Even though Brazilian waxing removes all hair, you can request variations depending on your preferences. At Colibri Day Spa, we offer the best professional and most comfortable waxing services in the area.
You will have clean and smooth skin for 3 to 4 weeks.
Most common are the eyebrows, arms, legs, upper lip, and bikini area.
Not at all…just kidding. It depends on the individual and their personal tolerance level. Any pain during waxing is very quick and temporary. And it’s well worth it.
Yes. As your skin strengthens and the hairs become more fine and thinner, the discomfort level decreases. Waxing regularly makes everything a lot easier.
We recommend wearing loose clothing for your appointment. Nothing too tight that will rub against your skin. This will help prevent any post wax irritation.
Most clients come in for a wax every 4 weeks. This insures the very best results.

Speaking with your therapist at the beginning is very important - to express your goals and needs. But during your service we hope you can breathe deeply, relax and completely let go as you drift away to a state of pure bliss. A great massage therapist will always ask “how are you doing?” during the massage, and “is the pressure okay?” Let the massage therapist know if a certain area is feeling sensitive or uncomfortable during your session.
