Waxing

 

Waxing is the longest-lasting temporary hair removal technique available.

With waxing, the hair is removed by the root resulting in beautifully smooth, silky, hairless skin for up to 4 - 6 weeks.

 

You can be confident when waxing with us, that you're in the hands of a professional, highly experienced esthetician.

 

Waxing Tips

 

  • The best antidote for the pain of waxing is to relax. Aside from relaxing you can take a pain reliever an hour before waxing to temporarily reduce pain and sensitivity.
     

  • Allow at least 2 weeks (4-6 is the norm) between waxings. Approximately a quarter inch of regrowth is necessary for the wax to adhere to the hair and pull it up by the root.
     

  • Clip your pubic hair down to approximately 1/4 inch in length.  Pubic hair that is clipped down to a quarter inch is the easiest to remove and will cause less discomfort. You can trim your pubic hair down with scissors, mustache clippers, or hair clippers.  Do not shave it down to nothing because at shorter lengths the hair is very difficult if not impossible to remove.
     

  • Do NOT use exfoliating products (AHA's, scrubs etc.) 24 hours prior to receiving a wax and DO notlfy your esthetician if you are using any medications that might make your skin prone to sensitivity. If you are not sure, ask.

  •  

  • If you suntan try to avoid waxing for 24 hour prior to and after your waxing procedure.
     

  • Be sure to wash the skin thoroughly and dry it well before hand to remove any lotions or oils that may prevent the wax from adhering closely to the skin.
     

  • Exercise, the use of hot tubs or saunas and sex is not recommended for 24 hours post wax.
     

  • Sometimes bumps or in-growns can result from waxing. Regular exfoliation is recommended to remove dead skin cells so that the hairs can get out above the surface of the pore and not become in-grown.

 

What are the possible side effects of waxing and how can they be minimized?

Although we cannot predict nor guarantee who may react and how, most clients do not experience reactions beyond redness and minor irritation.

 

  • It is possible that hair may break at the root during waxing, causing some hairs to grow out faster and or become in-grown hairs. To avoid/minimize this you should exfoliate the area to be waxed regularly.
     

  • When waxing thin skin, skin lifting can occur. Skin lifting happens when both dead and live skin are pulled off with the was, creating an abrasion similar to scraping one’s knee. When lifting is visible, the area will be shiny and slightly “dewy” and have a slight stinging sensation.  Lifting is not uncommon and should resolve itself in a few days.  To avoid/minimize lifting make sure to tell your esthetician if you have had lifting in the past and on what areas.  Also, let the esthetician know if you are using any harsh products on your skin that might make it more sensitive.
     

  • Discoloration (hyperpigmentation) of the skin can occur if freshly waxed areas are exposed to the sun.  To avoid/minimize this risk please use sunscreen on any freshly waxed areas.
