Waxing

All facial, underarm, Brazilian, and bikini waxing is done by using hard wax which is

gentle on the skin, making it ideal for these sensitive areas. We never double-dip.

 

We use a cream-based soft wax for the body only one applicator use per person,

we throw away the used applicator at the end of the service.

Frequently Asked Questions

Waxing

What type of wax do you use?


We use hard wax on the face, underarms and Brazilian because of the sensitive skin in these areas. Hard wax adheres to the hair and not the skin, making in gentler on the skin. We use a cream based soft wax for the rest of the body.




How long does your hair have to be for waxing?


We recommend 3/4 of an inch for most areas. Upper lip and eyebrows can be shorter.




Can I use numbing cream before waxing?


Please don’t! Numbing creams can interfere with the application of the wax, we ask you avoid using them.




Can I bring someone in the room with me?


Sorry, we do not allow anyone else into the room when you are having waxing done*. It can distract the esthetican and actually make a first time waxer feel more anxious. We will endeavour to make your experience as comfortable as possible. *A parent or guardian may be in the room for anyone under the age of 18, or for someone who has communication difficulties or a medical condition.




Should I trim before I come in for a Brazilian?


No its fine, leave it up to us and well do everything for you. We have often found that if you try to trim before you visit more often than not it gets cut too short making our job harder.




How long should I let my hair grow?


This really is down to individual hair growth. For legs we recommend that you leave hair to grow for 3-4 weeks to ensure that both of your growth cycles (hair grows in 2 growth cycles) are through therefore ensuring a nice thorough wax. For Brazilians, if you haven’t shaved, waxed or trimmed in over 6 months we recommend trimming slightly to make it a more comfortable experience. We need a minimum of ¾ of a inch of hair. We also recommend that if it’s your first wax ever that you don’t leave it literally just before the big occasion – i.e. Just before a holiday/your wedding. We recommend that you have a couple with us before the big one to ensure that the most uncomfortable one is out of the way plus after your second wax the results will be even more thorough as the first wax may not have caught both of your two hair growth cycles.




When can't I wax?


We cannot wax you if any of the following applies to you:
You are on your period for Brazilian waxing.
You are using any Retinol products i.e. Retin A on any area you are looking to have waxed. You are using Acne medication Accutane. You have any kind of sunburn, laser burn, pustules or breakouts on the area to be waxed. You are diabetic. You are currently going through chemotherapy or radiation. However, we can wax you if you supply a doctor’s note saying it’s okay for you to wax.
Please can we ask that you discreetly disclose all medical conditions you have before we wax you, especially any STDs.




Can I have a Brazilian wax if I am pregnant?


Yes you can, but please let our reception staff know that you are pregnant so we can be ready with pillows for support and to allow more time for waxing. Please be aware that being pregnant will make you more sensitive during your wax.




What about care after waxing?


We recommend using an exfoliant 24-48 hours post wax on areas neck down to prevent ingrowns. You can use light creams or serums to nourish and hydrate the skin.

Post wax for 24 hours avoid heavy sweating such as working out to avoid irritation.

For facial waxing we recommend not wearing make up until the next day to prevent breakouts and irritation.




I’m taking acne medication can I get a facial or waxing?


If you’re taking accutane you need to wait 1 year after stopping treatment to receive any facials, waxing or medical treatments.

If you are taking (prescribed or OTC) Tretinoin, Adapalene,m Benzoyl Peroxide or Tazarotene medication let us know beforehand, depending on percentage, when used and when stopped we may be able to perform a facial.

If you are taking antibiotics we recommend waiting until you wax to reduce any risks and side effects.




How often should I come in for waxing?


This really is down to individual hair growth. For legs, arms and brazilian we recommend a minimum of 3-4 weeks. For underarms 2-3 weeks, and for face it depends on individual growth but a good standard is 2-3 weeks




What should I expect the first 1 or 2 times that I get waxed?


Avoid getting waxed for the first time, or after a long time before a vacation, wedding or special occasion. The first 1-2 times you get waxed we may not be able to remove all the hair due to hair growth cycles, as well you may experience more irritation your first time.

Don’t be nervous, we’re here to make your session as comfortable as possible and you can ask questions at anytime.





We require 24 hours notice to cancel or change any single service appointment and 48 hours notice for multiple same-day service appointments.  If the required notice is not given, or the client does not show up for their appointment, the client may not be re-booked unless they prepay their appointments until Five Senses deems prepayment is not required.
