Spa and Esthetic Services in Alberta

Esthetic Services in Alberta

​​​​​Many Albertans enjoy a relaxing visit to the spa to get esthetic services. Esthetic services are services that help you look or feel better. These include things like manicures, pedicures, waxing, facials, ear piercing, make-up, and hair and barbering 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 should 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.

Contact Alberta Health Services (AHS) Environmental Public Health if:

  • you have concerns or questions about an esthetic service in Alberta
  • you’d like to make a complaint about a spa or its services
  • you want to find out if a spa has been inspected and approved by AHS
