Waxing

What is waxing?

Waxing is a semi-permanent hair removal option that removes the entire hair from the follicle. If done consistently, hair will grow back slower, finer, and sparser.

Why waxing?

  • Easy hair removal
  • Silky-smooth legs for up to 6 weeks
  • No razor cuts

Frequently Asked Questions

Waxing can be done almost anywhere, but the most common treatment areas include:

  • Eyebrows, nose, lips, ears, chin, side burn
  • Arms and legs
  • Bikini

Warm wax is applied to the area, with a cloth or paper strip pressed and adhered to the wax. The strip is then quickly removed, pulling the wax and hair with it. We do carry a gentle wax for people with more sensitive skin.

It depends on the area to be treated:

  • Brows, lips, chin, nose – 15 minutes
  • Arms and legs – 30 minutes
  • Bikini – 45 minutes

We recommend waxing every 4-6 weeks, although some people may notice hair growth sooner depending on the hair growth cycle. If done consistently, hair will grow back slower, finer, and sparser.

Do not shave for 2 weeks prior to hair removal. This will ensure the wax and strip have enough hair to adhere to for removal. It is also recommended that you avoid sun exposure for 48 hours before and after your wax.

For a full post-treatment plan, please see the form “Waxing take home instructions” in the box to the right. A quick run-down of post-care includes:

  • Avoid aggressive exfoliation, waxing, and Retin-A products for one week after treatment.
  • Wear SPF 30+ for the first 2 weeks post-treatment (this is a MUST).
  • Refrain from tanning for 48 hours.

You will be able to see a noticeable difference immediately following treatment.
