WHAT IS WAXING?

Waxing is a form of hair removal that removes the entire hair from the follicle. Warm wax is applied to the skin and adheres to the hair. When removed, the hair is pulled from the root.

DOES WAXING HURT?

Everyone’s pain tolerance is different, but you can expect a short, stinging sensation after the strip is pulled. If you are worried about being sensitive, taking an ibuprofen or aspirin about 30 minutes before your appointment should minimize your discomfort (consult with your physician before taking any medication). Continuous waxing causes finer and less hair therefore waxing becomes less painful.

WHY SHOULD I WAX VS SHAVING, ELECTROLYSIS, OR LASER?

If waxing is done consistently, hair grows back slower, finer, and sparser. Shaving cuts the hair off at the skin and the quantity and thickness of the hair stays the same. Shaving can also increase skin sensitivity and create a higher probability for ingrown hairs. Electrolysis and Laser hair removal doesn’t work for everyone and can be unpredictable and cost prohibitive.

WHAT KIND OF WAX DO YOU USE?

We use 2 different types of wax. For the face and more sensitive areas of the body, we use a hard wax that shrink wraps and hardens around the hair and lifts from the skin creating a less painful removal. We use a more traditional soft wax for larger body areas such as legs, arms, chest and back and it is removed by using a cloth strip.

HOW LONG CAN I EXPECT MY WAXING TO LAST?

If you’ve allowed your hair to grow out to the proper length prior to waxing, you can expect to be hair-free for a minimum of 1-2 weeks following your appointment.

WILL MY HAIR GROW BACK THICKER OR DARKER?

No, waxing actually has the opposite effect. Hair that is removed at the roots grows in finer and softer over time.

IS THERE AN AGE LIMIT FOR GETTING WAXED?

Waxing is for everyone- guy or gal, young or old! Speaking of young, if you’re under 18, please bring a parent or guardian on your first visit as we need their consent. Better yet, have them book an appointment too!

CAN SOMEONE COME IN THE TREATMENT ROOM WITH ME

To provide optimal services, only the client and technician are allowed in the treatment room during an appointment. Except for clients under the age of 15, where we invite a parent or guardian to be on hand.

CAN I BE WAXED IF I’M TAKING RETIN A, RENOVA, OR ACCUTANE?

These medications increase the rate at which your skin exfoliates so waxing could potentially remove skin as well as hair. Please let your technician know immediately if you are on any medications. Also be aware that chemical peels, laser, and micro-dermabrasion can also affect skin integrity.

OTHER MEDICATIONS TO BE AWARE OF?

There are many medications that affect skin and skin integrity (glycolic acid, lactic acid, benzyl peroxide, salicylic acid, alpha hydroxyl acid, vitamin A, prescribed exfoliating scrubs, antibiotics, hormonal medications, radiation and/or chemotherapy drugs). Please consult with your physician in regards to any medications and how it may affect your waxing experience. Some brand names to be aware of: Adapalene, Avita, Tazorac Avage, Proactiv(e), Differin, Strivectin.

WILL PRICE DECREASE IF I DON’T HAVE VERY MUCH HAIR?

Our charges are determined per service, not by amount of hair.

HOW DO I PICK A GOOD WAXING SALON?

Providers should be licensed and specialists in skin care. Your provider should provide on-going education and help answer any questions you may have regarding the waxing process. The salon overall should be a clean and healthy environment.
