Frequently Asked Questions For Waxing
All questions are welcome, if you don't see your question feel free to ask us!
How long does my hair need to be for waxing?
After shaving, you should allow the hair to grow out for about 3 weeks. It needs to be between a 1/4 inch to a 1/2 inch long.
How often can I get waxed?
The usual grow out time is between 4 and 6 weeks, that may very by person.
Does waxing hurt?
It's kind of like ripping off a band-aid, it stings but then the pain promptly goes away. The more you get waxed the more you get use to it and know what to expect. Avoiding caffeine prior to waxing can help as well.
What is a Brazilian?
A Brazilian removes all the hair on the labia and in the back "between the cheeks". You can leave as much hair as you want on the top. Some women like triangles and other prefer leaving a strip.
What should I do as far as aftercare?
It is important to keep the skin exfoliated after waxing. This will help the hair to come in easier which helps to prevent ingrowns. A topical exfoliation solution in combination with manual exfoliation using bath gloves or a loofa, works the best. It's also important to avoid sun exposure, tanning beds, scented lotions or oils, hot tubs and strenuous exercise for 24 hours after the wax as the skin is more sensitive during this time.
Should I trim my hair before getting waxed?
It's actually better if you don't trim your hair before your appointment. The longer the better and there is a risk that it could be trimmed too short.
Do certain medications prevent me from getting waxed?
Yes! You cannot get waxed if you are using Differin, Retin A, Renova or are using or have used Accutane in the last 12 months. Any medications that make you sensitive to the sun will also prevent you from being waxed, such as certain antibiotics. These medications weaken the skin and it is easier to get burned or to have the skin "lift". In addition, if you had just had a glycolic peel or intense exfoliation is best to wait 3 or 4 weeks before waxing. If you're not sure if you should get waxed due to medication or peels, feel free to contact me.
I'm on my period can I still come in for a Brazilian?
Of course! No worries! I do ask that you have a tampon in for the service.
I'm pregnant, can I still get waxed?
Definitely! A lot of pregnant women are making this their pre-labor ritual. Although keep in mind that pregnancy does make some women more sensitive.
