Don't be embarrassed. Like your doctor, anyone specializing in Brazilian or body waxing has seen it all before (literally) and will do their best to put you at ease.
Plan on being waxed every four to six weeks for best results.
Do exfoliate regularly after a wax to prevent ingrown hairs.
Do relax. Yes, easier said than done, but the more relaxed you are, the easier it will be.
Ladies, don't book a wax just before your period, as this is when your body is most sensitive and the ouch factor will be at it's greatest.
Do not have any body lotion or oils applied to your skin on the day of waxing.
Area stays softer and smoother longer.
Waxed hair becomes finer and more sparse over time. Waxing pulls hair out at the root. Shaving shears the hair in the middle at it's thickest point, so it grows back blunt and thick.
No itching or stubble feeling as the hairs are growing back.
If kept up consistently year-round, repeated waxing may result in weakened hair follicles so that many unwanted hairs no longer grow back.
For Body Waxing Treatments hair needs to be at least ¼ inch long but preferably ½ inch. Please allow two or preferably three weeks of hair growth before your visit.
Limit your caffeine intake the day of your appointment as it can stimulate the nervous system and make waxing more painful.
Let your service professional know if you have been on any skin medications that could affect your waxing service. These include but are not limited to Accutane, Alpha or Beta Hydroxy Acids(glycolic, salicylic etc..), Antibiotics, Benzoyl Peroxide, Differin, Retin-A/Retinol or any other skin thinning medication.
Be sure to pick up your home care products to maintain a smooth bikini line, we carry many ingrown hair relief products so ask your esthetician!
We maintain a strict no double dipping waxing policy
A pain reliever/anti-inflammatory can be taken 30 minutes prior to a waxing appointment to minimize discomfort.
For ladies, waxing on or near your menstrual cycle can be more painful so please schedule your visit wisely. We can still perform the waxing service just be aware that you may be more sensitive.
Avoid Heat 24 hours for after a wax. This includes working out as it produces sweat which carries bacteria into the pore and can irritate skin after waxing. Also avoid sauna, steam and hot tub for one day following a wax.
We ask that you honor our 24 hour cancellation policy, appointments that cannot be re-booked will be charged 50% of the price of the service.
Must be 18 or over to wax, if younger must have a parent or guardian present.
