Pre & Post Waxing Care

Before your appointment

  • Come in with clean skin, free of any lotions.
  • No tanning (or spray tanning) 24 hours before.
  • Do not use Retin-A, Glycolics, or chemical peels for 5-7 days before your waxing appointment.
  • Do not use Accutane for at least 28 days before treatment.
  • Hair should be around 1/8” to 1/4” in length by the time of your appointment.

Aftercare

  • No tanning and avoid sun exposure.
  • Avoid high temperatures for 24 hours. (Saunas, steam rooms, hot yoga, or working out). Sweat harbors bacteria.
  • Showers are okay but avoid submersion in water. (Lakes, pools, hot tubs, bath).
  • Exfoliate & moisturize regularly.
  • You may use a cool compress or take an anti-histamine to calm any irritation of the skin.

Waxing FAQ

How long does hair have to be to be waxed?
Hair needs to be at least 1/4″ to 1/2″ long; if it is too short, the wax won’t grab the hair.
Will my hair grow back thicker?
Nope! Actually. over time, hair will grow back finer and softer with waxing.
Do you offer waxing services for men?
Yes, aside from bikini areas.
What is the difference between bikini, extended bikini and a brazilian wax?
  • Bikini: removes hair extending outside the panty line.
  • Extended bikini: removes hair extending outside the panty line, and further inside the panty line leaving a thin strip of hair.
  • Brazilian: removes all hair front and back (some women choose to leave a small strip on the front).
Can I get waxed if I'm on my period?
Yes. However, while on your period (and just before)- sensitivity is increased, so if you have a lower pain tolerance I recommend waiting until afterwards.
How often should I book my waxing appointments?
You should expect to be smooth and hair free for at least 1-2 weeks and hair will be long enough to wax again in about 4-6 weeks.  Brazilians have separate pricing if they are booked within the maintenance time period of 4-6 weeks.
