Waxing is the process of removing unwanted hair from the body by pulling the hair from its follicle. Most growth cycles take 4-6 weeks for new hair to grow in that area. 

Wax Do's...

  • Wait until your hair is long enough! Hair should be about a quarter inch long = a grain of rice to have a great waxing experience. But also, make sure the hair isn't too long, this will only increase discomfort.

  • Do arrive to your appointment clean, while we do understand things happen, wipes are provided for such occasions. 

  • For the best results, stay consist and book your appointments every 4 weeks.

  • Relax! Take deep breaths, being relaxed = a great appointment!

  • Wear comfortable clothing. (Ex. cotton panties)

  • Let us know if you have any allergies to ANYTHING and/or any medications you're taking or applying topically. 

  • Exfoliate 1-2 days before your appointment. 

Wax Don'ts...

  • Numbing creams, unfortunately, numbing creams don't penetrate the skin deep enough to work. Any discomfort you MIGHT feel will only be temporary. 

  • If you need to tan, do it a MINIMUM of 3 days before waxing. 

  • Drink large amounts of coffee and/or alcohol, this may increase the discomfort of your waxing experience. 

  • Plan your appointment right before, right after or during your menstrual cycle, this can also increase your discomfort. If you must have your appointment during your period, please arrive with a fresh tampon.

  • Don't be nervous! Just Relax!

Please Be Aware:

Waxing can cause "skin-lifting" when the top layer of the skin is torn away during waxing. Although lifting is a normal hazard of waxing, the following can/will further encourage it.... 

Do Not Wax if you are:

  • Taking blood thinning medications

  • Taking medications or autoimmune diseases, ex. lupus

  • Taking prednisone or steriods

  • Have Psoriasis, eczema or any other chronic skin conditions 

  • Recent sunburn

  • Recent cosmetic surgery/reconstructive surgery

  • Recent laser skin treatment

  • Severe varicose leg veins

  • History of cold sores/fever blisters, doing so can cause flare ups

  • Using any skin peeling agents

  • Recent surgical peel, microdermabrasion or chemical peels using glycolic, AHAs, salicylic acid
