Frequently Asked Questions
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.
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.
When can't I wax?
We cannot wax you if any of the following applies to you:
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.
What about care after waxing?
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.
