Most Frequently Asked Questions

Below are the answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about the waxing. Please click the toggle button to see all the question and answers listed. If you have a question that is not listed, contact us and we’ll be glad to answer it for you.

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 or using numbing cream should minimize your discomfort (consult with your physician before taking medications). Continuous waxing causes finer and less hair therefore waxing becomes less painful.

I have tried waxing some area of my body, but those regions always break out with white or red angry spots. Can you provide me some tips that help prevent this reaction?

It’s common to have some breakouts or little red spots, especially if you have sensitive skin. For prevention, we always recommend to treat freshly waxed skin with antibacterial or antiseptic products. You can take other precautions like to apply soothing solution to reduce the irritation. We also have product available that our clients may purchase and use regularly at home to further prevent these spots or redness from occurring.

What kind of wax do you use; and do you offer sugar waxing?

We use three (3) different types of wax. We have a hard wax that shrink-wraps and hardens around the hair and lifts from the skin creating a less painful removal; a more traditional soft wax which is removed by using a cloth strip; and a soy-based hair remover for clients with more sensitive skin. UNFORTUNELY, WE DO NOT OFFER ANY SORT OF SUGAR WAXING.

Will my hair grow back thicker/darker?

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

Can I wax if I'm taking Retin-A, Accutane, or Renova?

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

Can I still be waxed if I'm on my menstrual cycle?

Of course! Being on your menstrual cycle is not a cause for you to reschedule your appointment. All clients will still be able to be seen as long as they have a tampon in during the waxing treatment.

What should I do to prepare for my wax?

Before your appointment we suggest you to take a shower the day of. Your hair must be a quarter of an inch in length, which is about 3 to 4 weeks of growth. A night before your wax gently exfoliate to release all ingrown hairs and dead skin cells. Please do NOT shave or use any other hair removing product as it will make your hairs more sharper and harder.

How long will my wax last?

Can I shave in between my appointments?

Please, don't shave between waxing appointments. This makes the hair resistant to future waxing. The first couple of waxes may not be perfect and you may not be super smooth if you've shaved in the past. Hair grows in cycles and at different lengths especially if you have been shaving for a long time. At the time of your first wax there will be really short hairs and long hairs, and there will also be some breakage resulting in the hair failing to lift from the root when being pulled. So, be patient. As you continue to wax, the hair volume and thickness of hair is lessened, and it will be much easier to get all the hair off. This is how you get the results you want! If you see any random hairs, you may tweeze but three (3) days after the waxing. Then smile and bear with it until the next time you come see us.

What's the difference between a Basic Bikini, a French, and a Brazilian wax?

A basic bikini wax includes all hair that can be seen while wearing underwear to give you a nice clean look without going bare. A French bikini or extended bikini wax resembles a high cut bikini where a portion of hair is removed from the top of the bikini line. The sides of the bikini line are waxed about 1 ½ inches inward from the inguinal line. A small portion of hair is removed from the sides of the vaginal lips. We do not remove hair from the labia or in between the buttocks. A Brazilian wax includes everything front and back, and the client has the option of having a landing strip.

Most Frequent Question - Men

Do you offer waxing for men?

YES! Everyone deserves to stay smooth! We offer full body waxing for both men and women.

What do I do if I feel some sort of way during my wax or if I get an erection?

There is nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed about. We know that our clients are mature adults and we are professionals that want our clients to know and understand that erections can happen during the wax due to many reasons. It will not be an issue for your esthetician, but we do ask that you remain respectful of our staff.
