Default first laser treatment - not sure about tipping :confused:

Hi everyone!
maybe my question sounds a little silly - but it just drives me crazy (
I'm going to have my first laser treatment in few days- and i am confused by one question - do you usually give tips (gratuity) after each treatment (like for example in hair salon )?
I'm just nervous about how everything will go - and this money question makes me even more worried

I did not initially but since I have the same person and have the package deal, I started to tip between $5 and $10. I tell the lady to have luch on me. It is a nice thought, she appreciates it and I hope I get bettr service as a result.

Tip if you want to. Some places have a policy against it. so just ask. I wouldnt tip if it is in a medical spa, or medical environmnet. If it is more like a spa... then it is ettiquetly correct to tip.

Hi there,
I am a guy and I get middle brow, earlobes and a brazilian treatment.
The techs have always been women. There is the regular one, but sometimes she is on holiday.
I think the price I pay is quite reasonable, I have a locked in price of $89.00 Cdn. if I buy 3 spa certificates at a time in advance.
I tip most places I go, including the spa.
I tip the tech $10.00.
I figure seeing as how I am a guy and they are women it may be a bit awkward for them giving me a brazilian, so I figure I should at least show my appreciation. If it was a guy, I would still tip.
The last time I tipped the tech gave me a big thank you and seemed to very appreciative of receiving the tip. I can only expect that maybe she does not get tipped often, or maybe not as much.
I would say, if you like the service, leave a tip. Tips are usually 15%, but vary depending on the type service, how well pleased you were and also the total bill. I expect $10.00 or slightly more would be sufficient and appreciated.

We don't take tips, but were more a medical type spa environment. Imagine would you tip your dentist or doctor? Then unlike a massage therapist or barber who you would tip, I wouldn't tip them. But gift giving for sure! ; )

I always tip at least 15-$20. Sometimes more if the tech is especially good.

If you have got good treatment and best service then you can tip for this service men. It is depend on you because many people pay as per service. So I hope you understand about tipping. Thanks
