Ah grasshopper, we all overlooked this question and talked only of wax.
My regimen is to 'tune" my skis every time I ski. If I was on soft snow very little may be necessary, but if on hardpack or ice the edges getted all burred up after a single day.
Filing often is not a good thing, but using a stone, preferably a diamond stone, on the edges to deburr them will keep your skis edgehold and smooth slicing much better. We're all assuming you will be doing this yourself, and well you should, but you will need some tools.
If indeed we misunderstood you and you're going to bring them to a shop all our advice will be quite costly for you won't it? Paying someone to wax your skis daily - ahhhhhh! Also trusting a shop to tune your skis a lot will potentially get you worse conditions skis, they may for example overbevel the base edge.
So grasshopper we (
really just I, but I assume) suggest you do it yourself - it's fun, relaxing and will keep you more in touch with your skis. You will see for example what parts of your edge get burred worse (typically your inside edge, and in the areas you put more pressure.)
There is a ton of info on posts in this forum about what tools to get, and how to do it. At the least you'll need a vice and some stones, an iron, a plastic scraper and a brush or two. At the most, like me, you'll end up buying tools just because it's addicting - and fun!
Meditate on this
