Before waxing………

You should refrain from waxing if you are using Retin-A , Acutane (currently or in the past 4 months), some antibiotics and or skin medications or if you are recovering from a recent laser treatment or peel. Please inform your skin care professional about any and all medication that could affect skin sensitivity.  We can help you decide if it is a good time for waxing or when to navigate waxing for the future.


Why should I wax?

Waxed hair grows back smooth and fine.  Each time you wax, the hair follicle weakens and can eventually stop growing, leaving you with less hair and smoother skin. 


How long should I let my hair grow?

You must let your hair grow in for at least 2 weeks.  There should be about a 1/4 to a 1/2 of an inch of hair growth for your best wax.  Particularly with your first wax, the more hair growth, the smoother the results.


What if I am pregnant, can I still get waxed?

Yes. You may be a little more sensitive than usual but we regularly wax mothers-to-be. 


If I’m on my cycle do I need to cancel?

No!  It doesn't bother us at all. Just use a tampon.  Not to worry.  It happens all the time. 


What will I be wearing in the treatment room?

For bikini waxing, you will need to undress from the waist down, underwear optional.  Additionally, if you are getting a Brazilian you will need to underdress completely from the waist down.  We will do our absolute best to put you at ease!


What does a Brazilian really mean?

A Brazilian wax is the complete removal of hair from front to back, including the labia, and the backside. You do have the option however, of either going completely bare or leaving a small strip or triangle of hair in the front.  Your waxing professional can discuss options with you during your appointment.


How long does the Brazilian waxing take?

The process usually takes about 20 minutes, but it depends on how much hair needs to be removed.


How long does waxing last?

Waxing last on average 2-4 weeks.  The longer you wax the longer and smoother the results. We recommend no shaving in between waxes to insure decreased hair growth. 


How often should I get waxed?

The baseline recommendation is every 3-6 weeks. That goes for everything: brows to legs to Brazilians. Some clients experience a slower or faster rate of hair growth, and that time can be changed accordingly.  We will help you gauge when you should return.


Does it hurt to get waxed?

There is some pain associated with waxing but we promise it’s worth it!      You will experience a temporary sting that leaves quickly and lessens the more you wax.  Of course, our estheticians are sensitive to this and do everything they can to minimize your discomfort.


What is the cancellation policy?

We kindly ask that you give us 24 hours notice when canceling your service.  We understand that circumstances arise that do not allow for 24-hour notice and we will do our best to accommodate you.  However, if you miss multiply appointments we may ask for a credit card number to hold future appointments.
