Q: What is the difference between a basic bikini, french bikini, and a Brazilian bikini wax?
A: A basic bikini wax removes all of the hair from the outside of the bikini line on both sides. A french bikini wax removes hair from the outside of the bikini line deeper than a basic bikini wax, and can also include waxing some hair on top to make a more defined "triangle area." This wax also includes the inner buttocks. A Brazilian bikini wax involves complete hair removal. With a Brazilian, the client could also choose to leave a strip of hair in the center. This wax also includes the inner buttocks.
Q: What can I do to help improve my waxing experience?
A: It is always helpful to exfoliate the area a few days before your service. Some people like to take a mild anti-inflammatory medication (like Ibuprofen) beforehand. This will help to reduce redness and swelling; it will also help to keep you calm if you get nervous easily. Also, avoid caffeine and alcohol before your appointment. These are stimulants and only increase your blood flow, which will make your experience more nerve-wrecking.
Q: Is waxing sanitary?
A: We have a very strict "no double dipping" policy regardless of whether we're treating your bikini area, eyebrows, or legs. We will NEVER reuse our wax sticks. This prevents the spreading of harmful bacteria.
Q: How long will my waxing appointment be?
A: Brazilian waxes take no longer then 20 to 30 minutes. We are very skilled in efficient waxing. Full legs, backs, or chests should take at most 45 minutes. On average, a full body wax will take an hour and a half.
Q: How long should I expect my results to last?
A: It depends on your rate of hair growth, but the average person is hair-free for two to three weeks. Most people are happy on a waxing schedule of four to six weeks.
Q: How long should my hair growth be for waxing?
A: Ideally the, hair needs to be at least an inch long in order to be waxed. The longer the hair, the easier the pull and the better the results. This means that it's best to have four to six weeks of hair growth after shaving or between waxes. There is no need to trim or buzz before your wax. We will care care of that if needed.
Q: Will my wax hurt?
A: Most people find waxing to be tolerable. Nevertheless, it might be helpful to take a mild anti-inflammatory medication (like Ibuprofen) one hour prior to their appointment. After just one wax session, your hair regrowth will be thinner, finer, and softer. That is one of the major benefits of waxing. With continued waxing, you may even experience significant reduction in regrowth. This makes it easier and less painful if you keep up with regular waxes.
Q: Can I get waxed while menstruating?
A: You can still get waxed while menstruating. However, you will be much more sensitive during this time.
Q: How long will my skin stay red for after a wax?
A: The skin may stay red and tender anywhere from one to 24 hours after--depending on your skin's sensitivity. We use a cream-based wax, specifically formulated for sensitive skin. Thus, most of our clients experience very little redness and irritation. We recommend applying a light layer of Hydrocortisone to soothe skin if irritation persists.
Q: If I'm pregnant, can I still get waxed?
A: Waxing during your pregnancy is perfectly safe. We are very experienced with treating moms-to-be. However, please note that you skin may be a little more sensitive during pregnancy. We suggest talking to your doctor about any concerns.
Q: What do I do about ingrown hairs?
A: EXFOLIATE, EXFOLIATE, EXFOLIATE!!! We advise ALL individuals who receive any sort of body waxing to exfoliate on a daily basis. You will get ingrowns if you're not exfoliating. Treat your skin with natural sea sponge. Move the sponge in a circular motion and pair it with a chemical exfoliant results. We will discuss these issues during your waxing appointment. We carry many products that will fit your individual needs.
