What are the benefits of waxing vs. shaving?
Waxing is far more effective as a long-term hair removal choice as hair grows back much slower, lighter, thinner and sparser. Plus, it helps you avoid the shaving risks of ingrown hairs and razor burn. Also, shaving results in more than one hair growing back in each pore which means your hair grows back thicker and coarser.
Is waxing permanent? Will the hair grow back?
While hair grows back after waxing, it is softer, finer and sparser. On average, most of our customers repeat waxing every 3–6 weeks depending on personal hair growth. If you wax consistently, it will change the growth cycle and physiology of your hair follicle, causing growth to diminish. It’s simple—the more you wax, the less hair you’ll have over time.
What happens if I shave between waxes?
Shaving between waxing will completely reverse the progress you’ve made in diminishing hair growth. It disrupts the hair growing cycle, causing unevenness and shortening the time period of smooth skin.
Will my Hair grow back thicker
The hair follicle is pulled out by the root. Overtime (barring hormonal or other unseen variables) it is discouraged from re-growing, and the hair becomes softer and actually less dense. Thus, making it easier to remove during your next visit.
how long should the hair be?
At least a 1/4 long (the length of a grain of rice). If measurements is confusing use the length of your longest eyelash as a guide. We know it can be miserable to grow out an area. Don’t worry! We will take care of you! Just come in with all you’ve got rather than shaving or trimming down. We can take care of that for you at no extra charge.
Can I wax during that time of the month?
Sure, we can absolutely wax you if it's that time of the month. But ... just be aware that the area is more sensitive and you may experience more discomfort than usual. Required to wear tampon to complete service, no exceptions. You may want to take Motrin or Tylenol before your visit.
What do I do if I have a low pain threshold?
If you know for a fact have you have a low pain threshold and you are wondering how painful the wax experience may be, consider trying the No Scream Cream. We have it in the spa retail hutch. Apply it to the area that will be waxed about 40 minutes prior to hopping on the wax table. Rub it in but not until it is completely absorbed. Leave a white film on the area. By the time you get to your appointment, it will have absorbed. It diminishes the sting felt with each pull about 40%. It retails for $19.
Can I wax when I am pregnant?
Firstly, congratulations! Secondly, yes, you can still wax. However, you may experience more skin sensitivity due to the hormonal changes your body is going through. Our wax specialists will make you as comfortable as possible during the service. We recommend checking with your doctor during the last two months of pregnancy.
Are there any medications (topical or other) that would affect my waxing?
Prior to your service, let your waxer know if you have any skin condition, currently being treated for or with any of the following:. Anti-aging
Note: If you are currently or have recently been treated with Isotretinoin (former
brand name Accutane) you should not be waxed.
