Waxing is a form of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for four to six weeks, although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week due to some of their hair being on a different growth cycle. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, pubic area (called bikini waxing), legs, arms, back, abdomen and feet. There are many types of waxing suitable for removing unwanted hair.
Strip waxing (soft wax) is accomplished by spreading a wax thinly over the skin. A cloth or paper strip is applied and pressed firmly, adhering the strip to the wax and the wax to the skin. The strip is then quickly ripped against the direction of hair growth, as parallel as possible to the skin to avoid trauma to the skin (i.e., bruising, broken capillaries, ingrown hairs caused by hair follicle trauma and lifting of skin). This removes the wax along with the hair.
Strip-less wax (as opposed to strip wax), also referred to as hard wax, is applied somewhat thickly and with no cloth or paper strips. The wax then hardens when it cools, thus allowing the easy removal by a therapist without the aid of cloths. This waxing method is very beneficial to people who have sensitive skin. Strip-less wax does not adhere to the skin as much as strip wax does, thus making it a good option for sensitive skin as finer hairs are more easily removed because the hard wax encapsulates the hair as it hardens. The strip-less waxing method can also be less painful

Does it hurt?
There is some discomfort involved, however most women find it quite tolerable. Our estheticians work quickly and because of our proprietary technique the pain is greatly minimized.
How long should I wait to get waxed after I’ve shaved?
3-4 weeks is recommended. It takes time to grow out each of the 3 cycles. If you come in prematurely you may not achieve a desirable result.
How often should I make an appointment?
We recommend booking every 6 weeks.
What is a Brazilian? The Brazilian wax originated in a place where tiny bikinis are worn and the incredible rate at which it has gained in popularity can leave little doubt that there is truly something special about it. The Brazilian wax basically takes it ALL away sometimes leaving just a tiny strip of closely shorn hair in the front (which is then referred to by some as a “landing strip”, a “playboy” or inverted “v”).
What can I do to prepare?
Avoiding caffeine for 5 hours before getting waxed will greatly reduce sensitivity. Caffeine restricts the blood vessels so skin is not getting as much blood flow which increases sensitivity. Taking an Ibuprofen 1 hour before will aid in reducing sensitivity and inflammation. We also carry PFB topical anesthetic which you may purchase and apply 15-20 min. before your appointment.
Is it OK to shave between wax appointments?
Waxing slows down and reduces hair growth. Hair also grows much thinner thus making it easier to remove and less painful when waxed. Shaving just one time in between will negate all that is gained from waxing and can further irritate follicles which can cause ingrown hair. So, no, we don’t advise shaving in between.
How long will it last?
If you have been shaving, there may be a transition period. It generally requires 2-3 consistent waxes to achieve optimal results which are: 3-4 weeks of hairlessness, softer hair, and less hair growing back. If you haven’t been shaving prior to getting waxed, these results may be obtained more quickly.
I’m on my period. Can I get waxed?
If possible, avoid scheduling your appointment just before or during your menstrual cycle. We recommend this only because we tend to be most sensitive during this time.
How long does it take?
Our experienced estheticians move quickly. The Brazilian itself should take no longer than 10 to 15 min.
What can I expect afterwards?
The waxed skin might be tender for a couple of days. We advise taking Ibuprofen to decrease inflammation and skin sensitivity.
What can I do about ingrown hair?
Exfoliating in the shower with a body brush everyday helps to keep the skin free from cellular buildup which can trap hair. We carry PFB which helps to prevent and clear the skin of ingrown hair.
Is waxing sanitary?
Yes! In concern for your health we never double dip our wax sticks. Never!!
Are there any topical creams or medications that I should avoid prior to getting waxed?
Yes! Internal Medication such as Accutane and topicals that include Retin-A, Salicylic Acid, Glycolic Acid, Differin, Tazorac, Avage, Strivectin, Renova, ProActive, Avita, Benzoyl Peroxide. All of the above mentioned can enhance skin sensitivity that could lead to lifting of the skin when removing hair.
Can I tan before or after I get waxed?
You should wait 3-5 days to get waxed after you have tanned. You should never get waxed if you are sunburned or even if skin is pink. The very top layer of skin could pull off or “lift” which is painful and can result in scabbing. You should wait for 3 days after you have waxed to tan. Waxed skin is more photosensitive and is more susceptible to burning.
