Many Albertans enjoy a relaxing visit to the spa to get esthetic services. These include things like manicures, pedicures, waxing, facials, ear piercing, makeup, and hair and barber services.
Spa owners and operators need to follow the Alberta Personal Services Regulations. These rules are made to keep you safe from injury or infection when you get esthetic services.
Going to the spa can be a fun, healthy, and relaxing time. However, there are potential health risks, such as serious infections or injuries, when proper health and safety precautions aren’t followed. Take a look at the
Be Spa Safe guidebook to find out what you should look for when visiting the spa.
