Does Waxing hurt?

Everyone experiences pain differently! That being said, you can expect a short, stinging sensation. To help ease the pain try taking an ibuprofen 30 minutes before your appointment to help ease the pain.

What are the benefits of wax over shaving?

Waxing removes hair directly from the root causing hair to grow back slower, thinner and more sparse. Waxing can also solve problems with ingrown hairs and razor burn. Shaving cuts the hair off directly at skin level causing hair to grow back quicker and the thickness of the hair will remain the same.

How long will my wax last?

If you’ve allowed your hair to properly grow out prior to your appointment you should see no hair growth for 1-2 weeks. At the 3rd and (preferably) 4th week you’re ready for another wax!

Will my hair grow back thicker and darker?

Waxing will cause the exact opposite of that! After being waxed you should notice your hair coming in thinner and more sparse. The more regular you become with waxing the better results you will see.

Can I bring a friend in the treatment room?

To provide the best service possible, the aesthetician and client will be the only ones in the room during the appointment. If under the age of 16, you are more than welcome to have your guardian in the room.

Can I be waxed if I’m using Retin A, Accutane or Renova?

Unfortunately no, using these medications can increase the risk of lifting/removing skin. Please advise your doctor on when it would be safe to wax after being off of these medications. Please let your aesthetician know immediately if you are taking any medications that could affect the quality of your service.

Can I get waxed on my period?

Yes, your aesthetician advises you wear a clean tampon before your appointment. Waxing on your period could make you feel more sensitive than normal.

Can I get waxed if i'm pregnant?

Yes it is safe to wax during pregnancy. Waxing while you’re pregnant may cause to feel more sensitive and make you more prone to swelling and lifting. Our aesthetician recommends that you book for a hard was Brazilian during this time.

Should I trim before my appointment?

It’s recommended to have 1/4 inch of hair for your waxing appointment. Any longer is fine, if you trim your you risk the quality of service if hair is trimmed too short.

How long should I wait to book my appointment after shaving?

After shaving you should wait 2 1/2 - 3 weeks. Hair ideally should be 1/4 of an inch (about the length of a grain of rice).

What is the difference between hard wax and soft wax?

Soft wax is a warm wax which is applied in a thin layer and then removed with a strip. Soft wax is great for larger areas and works for all hair types. Soft wax is available for all services and makes for a quick and efficient appointment!
Hard was is a thicker warm wax which when applied is left to dry for a couple seconds and then is removed on its own. Hard was is great for clients that have dry skin that is more prone to lifting. It’s also recommended for clients with psoriasis, eczema and for coarser hair types. Hard wax is available for all genital waxing.
