Waxing provides long-lasting silky smooth skin while reducing and replenishing damaged skin. We offer facial and body waxing. Once you start to wax on a regular basis, you will notice that your new hair is growing in softer and finer, while simultaneously diminishing new hair growth. Not to mention waxing eliminates that pesky itchy stubble that results from shaving. Waxing is a great way to reduce unwanted hair and, when done properly, can provide you with smooth skin for weeks. The benefits of waxing will leave you feeling pampered, beautiful, and empowered. With repeated waxing, unwanted hair grows back finer and sparser. Our waxing services are fast, affordable, and virtually painless. We are gentle and careful so that you can have a pain-free experience when you come to us for any of your waxing needs. Whether you are touching up your brows or require a full scale Brazilian, we are here to provide you with the best care.
Why do people wax?
The reasons are truly personal. An interest in enhancing intimate pleasure, being more hygienic, an improved appearance and feel, sports benefits for athletes, etc. People find that beautifully smooth skin is easier to maintain and more comfortable than shaving every day, not to mention worrying about that unattractive razor stubble.
How long do I have to wait between waxes?
Usually 3-4 weeks depending on how quickly or slowly your hair grows. Usually hair grows slower in winter months and faster in the summer months (so you would need to come in more frequently.)
How long does the hair have to be?
Hair should be at least a quarter of an inch long in order to be long enough to grab with the wax. Ideal is between a quarter to a half inch in length.
Will the hair grow back thicker?
Absolutely not. It might seem so because you will be accustomed to a hairless zone and new hair will be intolerable. Usually, regrowth will be finer, thinner and slower. Eventually, hair growth may stop altogether.
What can I do before waxing to prevent pain and/or irritation?
Check first with your doctor but some find that taking an over the counter pain reliever an hour before getting waxed helps to reduce some of the pain felt during the service. There are also some over the counter products that can reduce the pain associated with waxing. Make sure that you do not exfoliate, expose the area to the sun, apply any moisturizer, or exercise vigorously before your wax appointment as this may contribute to irritation and may damage your skin.
What’s the difference between a bikini wax and Brazilian wax?
First and foremost, lets go over what areas are covered with a bikini versus a Brazilian wax. In a typical bikini wax, just the outside of the bikini line, or any hair visible beyond the boundaries of a swimsuit, is removed. With the oh-so-popular Brazilian wax, all hair is removed from “front to back,” so to speak.
How should I treat my newly waxed skin?
Make sure that you do not sunbathe, exfoliate (with scrubs or acids), or go to the gym for about 24 hours after waxing. Also, do not use anything on your waxed skin that contains artificial colors or fragrances as they may irritate or infect your skin. If any wax residue remains on your skin it can be gently washed off with soap and water. Do not scrub. Any gentle body oil would also work.
Does waxing hurt?
Yes. The bottom line is that your hair is being pulled out by the root. Different body parts hurt more or less than others. We try to minimize the pain by utilizing superior wax techniques and by waxing as quickly as possible.
