FAQs- Wax Treatment What should I do before the treatment?
Ideally, do NOT exfoliate and BUT moisturize the area everyday after every shower/bathing prior to your appointment. On the day of your appointment, please shower before arrival. If coming straight from work, we will provide fresh wipes for your convenience. We also recommend that you take some Tylenol or Ibuprofen 30 minutes prior to your treatment to help with any discomfort.
How long does the hair need to be?
The hair should not be shorter than 1/4" inches. If you are having intimate waxing, the longer the hair the more uncomfortable it will be, but do not trim the hair before your appointment, it will be done for you during the service.
Why get waxed?
Men & women from all professions and all ages get waxed....more than you would ever dream of. Their reasons is it feels cleaner. Some think about it as excess hair that may be aging and that is a turn off. "Who really likes to wear a fur coat in the summer?"
How long will the results last?
Everyone is different. In most cases you will see minimal re-growth during the first 3 weeks with a noticeable increase after that. Continued waxing encourages slower re-growth.
How often should I be waxed?
If you are serious about maintaining that clean and smooth feeling, we recommend that you come in every 4 to 5 weeks.
When Not to Wax!
Waxing is appropriate for almost everyone but not recommended for people suffering from diabetes or those who have varicose veins or poor circulation as they are more susceptible to infection. Users of Retin-A, Renova, Differin or Isotertinoin are advised not to wax, the medications tend to weaken the skin and tearing of the skin may occur when the wax is removed. Waxing should not be carried out on areas of skin affected by warts, pimples, moles or rashes or on skin that is irritated, chapped or suffering sunburn. It is the responsibility of the client to discuss any concerns, conditions or medications that may result in contra-indications for waxing when you have your initial consultation.
If you are having the intimate waxing you will need to get naked from the waist down to get a perfect result, so you need to leave your modesty at the door. However, if you are not comfortable we will provide you with a towel to cover up although your treatment may take longer. If you choose to wear your own knickers, we cannot assume responsibility for any oil or wax splashed onto the fabric.
