How do I prepare for my waxing appointment?
We recommend that you exfoliate the area several days prior to your appointment. Thoroughly clean the area keeping the skin moist, but not greasy from heavy lotions or oils.
How long does my hair have to be?
Hair needs to be at least ¼” to ½” for effective waxing. For most people this means waiting 2-4 weeks (minimum of 2 weeks) from the last time you shaved.
The longer you wait, the better the results. For the best results you should be waxed every 4 weeks without any shaving in-between.
Can I get waxed if I’m on my period?
Increased hormone activity will make you more sensitive; avoid waxing 3 days before and the first 3 days of your cycle.
Can I get waxed if I’m pregnant?
Absolutely. We are used to making our pregnant clients feel as comfortable as possible during their waxing experience.
Can I tan before I get waxed?
We recommend that you should avoid sun exposure for 48 hours prior to and after your wax.
What should I wear to get a bikini wax?
Whatever makes you comfortable, keeping in mind that the “skimpier” the underwear the better our Esthetician can see what they are doing.
Also, we encourage you to leave your new panties at home in case we get any wax on them. We also provide complimentary disposable underwear for your use.
Any other things I should consider prior to getting waxed?
Females may want to schedule their appointment during the first 2 weeks of their cycle as it will help decrease sensitivity.
Also, avoid stimulants such as caffeine as it may increase sensitivity levels.
Take a couple Motrin an hour before your appointment and a numbing cream can be purchased at the spa to help make your appointment go smoother, which takes up to 60% of sting away.
