- How long will my wax last?
- Usually your wax will last between 3–4 weeks but everyone’s rate of regrowth is different so results will vary between guests. But remember, with the right products, you can help your bod stay smoother, for longer. Don’t know what to use? Feel free to ask me!
- Does waxing hurt?
- It depends on your tolerance for discomfort. Try to keep in mind that you are removing the hair from the root, but I will make sure you are as comfortable as possible
- What kind of products do you use?
- For face waxing, I use a zinc-oxide cream based soft wax that is meant for sensitive skin. For all other waxing, I use hard wax.
- I’m pregnant! Can I still wax?
- Yes, you can still wax. However, you may experience more skin sensitivity due to the hormonal changes your body is going through. We recommend checking with your doctor during the last two months of pregnancy.
- Can I still wax if I’ve just had a facial?
- You can still wax if you received a basic facial that includes a cleanse, steam, exfoliation and mask. If you received a specialty facial that includes, but is not limited to, an alpha (AHA) or beta (BHA) hydroxy peel, microdermabrasion or any other deep exfoliation treatment, then you need to wait at least 14 days to receive a wax service. You should check with your doctor to ensure it’s ok for you to wax after having any medical-grade facial treatment.
- Can I still wax if I tanned the day before?
- I recommend waiting at least 24–48 hours between waxing and tanning because your skin may be more sensitive. Because waxing exfoliates the skin by removing the top layer of dead surface skin cells, you’re more likely to experience sunburn. If you are going to go in the sun within 48 hours of waxing, it is recommended that you wear sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or more.
- Can I still wax if I have a sunburn?
- I will not perform services on sunburned skin or skin that is irritated or unhealthy. When your skin has healed, you can call to book a reservation for services.
- Can I still wax if I’m on medication?
- It’s always best to refer to your doctor if you have any questions. For prescribed creams such as Retin-A or Differin, we advise that you stop use 7 days prior to your wax reservation and do not resume use until 7 days after your wax service. We will not wax you if you are on Accutane. It’s very dangerous to wax while on Accutane and a doctor’s note will be needed to receive services. Remember, it’s important that you inform or update me on what medications you may be taking so we can ultimately provide you with a safe waxing experience.
