WAXING Q & A


Waxing

You asked…we answered…

Q: How long do I have to wait until I book my next appointment?

A: It varies depending on the stage of your hair growth, but the average time is between 3-5 weeks.

Q: How long does my hair have to be?

A: At least 1/4-1/2 inch long.

Q: What time of the day is best?

A: We recommend in the morning. Most people shower in the morning = fresh!  Your skin will also be free of any body oils/lotions.

Q:I have never had a Brazilian wax before, should I trim before coming in?

A: Yes please! The Esthetician and you will be glad you did! (The hair will be easier to remove which will cause you LESS pain).

Q: Is it painful?

A: It feels like a band aid being pulled off but with a little more force. :) *Tip: do NOT book within 3-5 days of your menstrual cycle as you will be more sensitive.

Q: What kind of training do Estheticians have?

A: We can only speak for ourselves, our Technicians have to follow a strict Protocol and perform a variety of waxing appointments before taking our guests. Typically our peers (staff) are the guinea pigs!

Q: Does it matter what type of wax is used?

A: Yes it does. If you have very sensitive skin you need to make sure the wax has soothing ingredients in it. Also ask if a good wax is used-yes there is crappy product out there! We use a zinc based soft wax which is excellent for all skin types.

Q: Why do I have to stay out of Saunas, hot tubs, hot yoga and the Sun after waxing?

A: Essentially waxing removes the top layer of your skin, making it extremely sensitive to any heat. If your skin is exposed to these elements within the first 24 hours, it may lift and blister.

Q:I have had a bad experience elsewhere, what do you think happened?

A: This is a difficult question to answer. It may be the Technician and the way she/he pulled the wax strip, perhaps she/he didn’t hold the skin taught enough, the wax used was not a Professional grade or you were on a “skin thinning” medication like Retinal or Accutane within the last 2 months. And/or if you were exposed to any “heat” elements listed above.

 

Do your research and ask the right questions when going

to a new Spa/Esthetician and happy waxing!
