Waxing 101

Frequently asked questions and tips for a fabulous waxing experience.

Before Your Waxing Appointment

  • Refrain from taking a shower or bath immediately before the treatment. Soaking the hair will soften it, allowing it to break more easily and making waxing less effective.

  • Make sure the hair is the appropriate length for waxing. The hair needs to be at least the length of a short grain of rice...do not trim long hair, let us take care of the details in the treatment room.

  • Make sure that the area(s) to be waxed are clean.

  • There are certain medications and products that should not be taken or used if you plan to have a waxing treatment soon. Topical exfoliants used on the area to be waxed such as Retin-A, Renova, and hydroquinone, oral acne medications such as Accutane, blood-thinning medications, and topical/oral cortisone make the skin more sensitive and increase the likelihood of irritation or other complications. Please check with your doctor if you are unsure whether you should be waxed while on or using a medication.

After Your Waxing Appointment

For the next 24-48 hours avoid on the waxed areas:

  • use of exfoliating products (Alpha-Hydroxy Acid (AHA) products, loofahs, scrubs, etc.)

  • direct sun exposure and tanning beds

  • creams with fragrance or ingredients that may irritate

  • deodorant: it results in irritation and clogging of open follicles

  • wearing tight clothing: results in irritation and inflammation

  • excessive heat, such as that from hot tubs and saunas. Warm showers are okay.

  • exercise, if it may cause chaffing or sweating

  • touching the freshly waxed area: this encourages irritation

 

For best results use the professional products recommended.

Remember Do Not shave in between appointments because it disrupts the hair growth cycle resulting in more hair at your next appointment.

Apply an SPF 30 or greater sunscreen to any exposed treatment areas. Since waxing exfoliates as well as removing hair, your skin will be more prone to sunburn in the days following your treatment.

First Time Brazilian Wax Made Easy

If you are feeling nervous know it's Understandable!

Getting a Brazilian wax doesn’t have to be something uncomfortable.

Most clients breathe a sigh of relief after their first experience. ​The hurdle is to get through the first appointment. The process becomes easier with each appointment thereafter. As the hair follicle is destroyed through the waxing process it becomes less painful. After long-term waxing, most clients literally won’t feel discomfort.

A Brazilian wax is removing all the hair in the bikini area front and back. That’s right everything is removed in the front plus between the cheeks in the back.

Brazilian wax offers many benefits; comfort and smooth skin that lasts for a month. Hair that will grow back finer and sparse. Softer hair and less of it is a huge perk. Exercise? No problem. Beach time? Care free.

Your home-care regimen is key to a successful and joyful waxing experience. To provide you with the most fabulous experience possible we offer home products that will:

  • Stop ingrown hairs before they start

  • Provide gentle skin-resurfacing

  • Remove dead skin cells and unclog pores

  • Brighten skin tone

What To Expect After Your First Wax

Smooth & Hairless skin! 

Everyone's skin reacts differently to waxing treatments, but you can expect to have temporary redness and minor irritation for a day or two. Slight itchiness may be experienced as the hair grows out. Proper post-wax care will alleviate these symptoms quickly.

Attention Brides: 

If you’re a bride or attending a special occasion, we recommend receiving waxing services a month before your special day to see how your skin reacts. If your service and skin went smoothly (pun intended), reschedule another wax a few days before.

Pregnancy & Waxing Services

Pregnancy hormones make hair grow in thicker and sometimes in unexpected and unwanted places.

Waxing is a great option for expecting mamas to enjoy smooth skin at all stages of their pregnancy.

The incredible female body changes so rapidly during pregnancy...as it gets harder to reach and bend, don't let hair growth be a frustrating task. Let us pamper you from head to toe with our specially formulated sensitive skin hard wax. 

Feel beautiful and confident through each phase with silky smooth skin.
