What is Waxing?

The process of removing body hair at the root by using a covering of wax, to adhere to the hair, then removing this covering, pulling out the hair from the follicle.

What are the Benefits to Waxing?

  1. It's semi-permanent, but can become a source of permanent hair removal if done consistently

  2. It's a healthy exfoliation for the skin

  3. leaves the skin less irritated compared to traditional shaving methods, helping us to get less ingrown hairs

  4. No possibility of those pesky cuts/nicks

How Long do the Results Last?

​Hair will not grow back in the treatment area for about 4 - 6 weeks. Some clients may start to see regrowth within a week due to some of their hair being on a different hair growth cycle.

What Should/Shouldn't I Do Before My Treatment?

  • Exfoliate the waxed area for 24 hours after treatment 

  • Avoid sunlight/ UV rays, swimming pools, beaches and very hot showers for a minimum of 24 hours after a waxing

  • No shaving in between waxing appointments! This will interrupt the waxing process by stimulating the hair to grow again.

  • Apply and oils, lotions or creams to the area before your appointment

  • Try not to use any perfumed creams or lotions for a couple of days to decrease skin irritation

  • Avoid scheduling your appointment right before, during or just after your menstrual cycle, otherwise the procedure may feel very painful

Do:

  • Let your hair grow out 1cm before your appointment

  • Give the area a good cleansing/cleaning before you come to your appointment (but dont apply any creams or oils on the area before your waxing)

  • wear soft, comfy clothing around the area being waxing to healp reduce any redness or burning.

  • Invest in a good water-based moisturizer to apply to your waxed areas post treatment. This will help to hydrate & nourish the skin as well as prevent clogged pores, caused by many of those oil-based products. (clogged pored create ingrown hairs)
