In brief: Likely OK

A good spa will have providers who are familiar with common skin agents.
I suggest you discuss it with your esthetician before the treatment, and if she/he looks at you with a blank stare, find another provider.

In brief: Yes.

This should not be a problem at all.
Just remember that if you are on a prescription strength retinoid, you cannot get waxing performed as this can actually remove the topmost layers of skin.
