Recharge Spa is respected in San Francisco as a registered medical spa with exceptional leadership in the areas of quality service, standards of sterilization, workplace safety, fair and equitable employment, local community support, and our environmental friendly practices. Health and Safety at the Spa
Our health and safety standards surpass those required by law. Our cleanliness and sterilization procedures are the same used in American hospital settings. These higher standards increase our costs, but they provide a significant reduction in health risk as compared with spas with less stringent standards. These standards include the use of medical-grade germicide on all surfaces and instruments, the use of a surgicalgrade autoclave to sterilize instruments, never reusing items that can not be autoclaved, use of medical nitrile gloves, regular spore testing to ensure that our autoclave is operating properly, and staff training in infection control. In addition, we run a â€˜greenâ€™ spa, which is not only environmentally friendly, but eliminates exposure to toxic chemicals.

For the Body:
Treat yourself to a relaxing experience while caring for the most visible part of your body—your face! Facials are the best way to keep your skin looking fresh and revived. We use top quality products in all of the facials, including BelleDerm and SkinMedica, which are only available in medical spas.

Why don’t we provide artificial nail services: Over time, acrylic nails can crack or separate from your real nails. When this happens, moisture collects, providing warm, moist spaces for infectious organisms to grow. This, in turn, can infect your skin or nails or enable you to unwittingly pass on infections to your family, friends, or coworkers. Acrylic nails also destroy your nail beds over time, making nails thin, brittle, and dry. Artificial nails also pose a health risk to you, our staff, and our other clients with the dust and harsh fumes created during the application process.
10 Weeks to Healthy Fingers 10 / 20 min each This pack of Essential Hand Treatments moves you from a never-ending cycle of artificial nails to your very own set of stunning, natural nails! We begin by gently removing your artificial nails and thoroughly cleaning your nail beds. Over the next 10 weeks, we work with you to care for your natural nails, cleaning, shaping, and strengthening them as they grow out naturally. You will be amazed to find out how beautiful your real nails look.
Why we don’t use whirlpool spa chairs. Whirlpool spa foot baths have health risks that you should know about. Even when a best effort is made to disinfect a spa chair foot bath basin, a risk of infectious disease still exists. There are many documented cases of infections caused by treatments in a spa chair foot bath. We don't take these risks with your health. We provide all pedicure soaks in stainless steel bowls. After each use the bowl is scrubbed and soaked in germicide. This process prevents the spread infectious diseases. This method also enables us to use natural herbs and oils that would clog spa chair foot bath basins.
Hair Removal Services We offer a wide range of options to deal with unwanted hair on every part of your body. Whether you choose laser, waxing, threading, or the Epilar system, our licensed professionals will provide you with the most comfortable and highest quality service possible. elōs Laser Hair Removal The elōs laser uses bipolar radio frequency in conjunction with laser energy to deliver an effective and safe treatment for all skin types and hair colors. This laser’s efficacy is unrivaled. The laser targets individual hair follicles in the growth phase resulting in permanent hair reduction. Gently remove unsightly hair anywhere—including hair on cheeks, chins, arms, and even sensitive places like the bikini line, upper lip, and stomach. Dramatic results are seen in about 6 treatments over the course of 4 to 15 weeks. Mild anesthetic and sedative measures are available to clients. Epilar After a precision waxing, a hair removal treatment cream is applied to the area. The cream is painless and non-invasive. Most people will notice that it takes twice as long for hair to grow back after a treatment and notice a 20% reduction in the number of hairs that grow back. Waxing Waxing services are provided with the highest possible quality European waxes containing chocolate and special emollients to decrease sensitivity and reduce ingrown hairs. Both soft and hard waxes are available. Specialized creams and lotions are used to reduce hair re-growth and increase comfort during and after the treatments. Threading Originated in Asia and requiring exquisite skill, this hair removal technique is almost an art form. The treatment is perfect for fine hairs and the effects of threading usually last longer than regular waxing.
