What kind of wax do you use?
We use 2 different types of wax. For the face and more sensitive areas of the body, we use a hard wax that shrink wraps and hardens around the hair and lifts from the skin creating a less painful removal. We use a more traditional soft wax for larger body areas such as legs, arms, chest, and back and it is removed by using a cloth strip.
How long can you expect the wax to last?
If you’ve allowed your hair to grow out to the proper length prior to waxing, you can expect to be hair-free for a minimum of 1-2 weeks following your appointment.
Will my hair grow back thicker or darker?
No, waxing actually has the opposite effect.
Hair that is removed at the roots grows in finer and softer over time.
Is there an age limit to getting waxed?
Waxing is for everyone—young or old! Speaking of young, if you’re under 18, please bring a parent or guardian on your first visit as we need their consent. Better yet, have them book an appointment, too!
Waxing is offered for guys only on chest, abdomen, legs, arms, and face.
Can someone come in the treatment room with me?
To provide optimal services, only the client and Esthetician are allowed in the treatment room during an appointment. Except for clients under the age of 15, where we invite a parent or guardian to be on hand.
Can I be waxed if I’m taking Retin A, Renova, or Accutane?
These medications increase the rate at which your skin exfoliates so waxing could potentially remove skin as well as hair. Please let your Esthetician know immediately if you are on any medications. Also, be aware that chemical peels, laser, and micro-dermabrasion can also affect skin integrity.
Other medications to be aware of are?
There are many medications that affect skin and skin integrity (glycolic acid, lactic acid, benzyl peroxide, salicylic acid, alpha hydroxyl acid, vitamin A, prescribed exfoliating scrubs, antibiotics, hormonal medications, radiation and/or chemotherapy drugs).
Please consult with your physician in regards to any medications and how it may affect your waxing experience.
Some brand names to be aware of: Adapalene, Avita, Tazorac Avage, Proactiv(e), Differin, Strivectin.
Will price decrease if I don’t have much hair?
Our charges are determined per service, not by amount of hair.
How do I pick a good waxing salon?
Providers should be licensed and specialists in skin care. Your provider should provide on-going education and help answer any questions you may have regarding the waxing process.
The salon overall should be a clean and healthy environment.
What’s the difference in a bikini, modified bikini and Brazilian?
Bikini – for the “Modest”…hair will be removed that extends outside of the panty line or crease of thigh.
Modified Bikini – for the “Adventuresome”…a thin strip of hair will be left down the middle of the bikini area.
Brazilian Bikini – for the “Wild”…all hair removed including backside (some prefer leaving a small patch in front)

We understand life may occasionally get in the way of your appointments.
