BIKINI AND BRAZILIAN WAXING

o   We use wax strips with soft wax.

o   Hair should be a minimum ¼ of an inch long. If the hair is sticking up then it is too short and will not come out with the wax.  If the hair is too long it will crack off and the whole hair follicle will not come out.

o   If waxing is done consistently you will get longer time in between visits and be less uncomfortable each time.  Typically hair grows back finer and weaker.

o   Exfoliate before and after treatment, no more than 2 times per week.

o   It is not recommended to tan or exercise immediately after (the day of the waxing).

o   If you are taking certain types of acne treatments you should check with your doctor before being waxed.

o   If you are using a product with AHG, this is a product that thins the skin and can cause skin to be removed easily, it important you let your service provider know.

SUGGESTIONS

  • Sensitivity: Your skin is often more sensitive during your menstrual cycle, and waxing can be more painful than normal. So your appointment shouldn’t be any closer than a couple of days before or after your cycle. We do not provide this service during this time.
  • Cleanliness: Shower and lightly exfoliate your entire bikini area right before your appointment using warm, not hot, water.
  • Skip this step: Refrain from using any lotions or oils on the bikini area.
  • Hair for now: You need some hair growth for the wax to hold onto, but not too long, which can make the waxing hurt more than it needs to. We require a  ¼” long, the length of a grain of rice.
  • Pain management: Taking a painkiller, like Tylenol, 30- 45 minutes before your appointment is recommended if needed. (Aspirin and Ibuprofen may not be the best choices as they both are known to thin blood.)
  • During: Know exactly what you want. This service often removes hair from the behind and between your legs. Sometimes a strip of hair or triangle is left in the front. Don’t be afraid to communicate exactly how much hair you want gone and remain to your technician. Remember, you can always create your own.
