F.A.Q.

Waxing F.A.Q.
Are you worried that lasers will take over?

Seems less and less people are waxing these days? I have no immediate concern about that. They have not perfected the art of hair removal with lasers yet and it is rare that someone gets a perfect result. Getting laser hair removal is time-consuming, painful and expensive. Someday the technology will probably affect my business, but I haven’t had that problem yet. I do recommend a couple laser treatments to clients with a lot of hair and serious ingrown hair problems. It makes their regular waxing services much easier for them. Will it make my hair grow back thicker? Absolutely not. Waxing does not cause you to grow more hair follicles. In fact, if you become a regular waxer, you will notice that your hair will become quite sparse and not as course.

Before Your Brazilian Wax!

RELAX and TRUST us! We do this all the time.
Let the hair grow ¼ to ½ an inch. The wax needs something to hold onto!
DO make a date to exfoliate… prep the area with a sugar scrub exfoliating (but be very gentle!) up until the day before your wax to help prevent ingrown hairs.
Make sure you shower the day of your wax to help prevent infection.
DO NOT apply any creams or lotions beforehand; you’ll get better results if your skin is dry.

Should I expect it to be a painful experience?

This truly depends on your pain threshold. Any pain felt is temporary and some feel it more than others. It is a momentary pain when the hair is pulled but subsides right after. When the hairs are pulled, the pain is quick, temporary and generally does not linger. We are not medical doctors so we cannot recommend taking anything but most people will take their favorite pain reliever. It is advised not to take aspirin as it thins the blood.

What Is A Brazilian Wax?

Brazilian wax refers to hair removal from the entire pubic region, front and back. This is a very effective procedure because it removes hair completely from the root.
It’s getting more popular to attain clean and sexy skin. In this process the entire pubic area can be waxed or some women prefer to live a small area above the Pubic area.

What should I do to prepare for my brazilian?

Bacteria around your anal area can be spread to open pores resulting in an infection. For your safety and for sanitary reasons it is important to be impeccably clean in your rectal and genital areas before a brazilian. Do not tan or spend time out in the sun up to 72 hours prior to waxing.  Tanning draws blood up to the surface and the skin is sensitive so lifting, peeling and bleeding can occur. Please do not apply any creams or lotions to your genitals the day of service as wax will not adhere to lotions, oils or creams.

What’s the difference between hard and soft wax?

(Read: which hurts less?) Well, hard wax is amazing on coarse hair and in sensitive areas because as it cools and hardens it grabs the hair and lifts up off of the skin, so when it is removed it only grabs the hair and doesn’t pull on the skin. Most people find it to be far less painful. It can only be applied in small sections or it will break, so it is not efficient to use on larger areas of the body (like legs). Soft wax is applied and removed with some form of cloth. It is great at grabbing finer hairs and works much better on large areas of the body. It cannot be reapplied to the same spot more than once because it removes more layers of dead skin than hard wax. Also, hard wax leaves no sticky residue, so it is easier to clean up than soft wax.

What’s the longest amount of time you recommend people go between waxes?

I recommend coming in every three to six weeks for regular waxing appointments. A person can wait longer than six weeks, but they run the risk that the waxing experience will be more uncomfortable for them.

Where did the term Brazilian Waxing come from?

As the name suggests, brazilian waxing originated from Brazil for women who wanted to wear the new thong bikinis. Brazilian wax became famous when it was introduced into the US when a hair removal salon called J. Sisters International Salon was opened in 1987. J. Sisters International Salon was opened in Manhattan, New York by seven Brazilian sisters Jocely, Jonice, Joyce, Janea, Jussara, Juracy and Judseia Padilha. However, the waxing of the genital areas is not new. Waxing of the genital areas has been prevalent for centuries in Ancient Greece, Rome, Egypt, Arabia, Turkey and Persia. Historically, the waxes were sugar-based and made with lemon.

Will I get ingrown hairs?

It’s possible. Waxing removes the entire hair, root and all, from the follicle. Your skin naturally hardens and thickens over the area it was waxed so it is important to keep that area gently exfoliated. Use a gentle scrub in that area about 3 days after waxing and continue to exfoliate 1 to 2 times a week thereafter. Remember, I said gentle! Also, use a mixture of tea tree and lavender oil. Both are antimicrobial and antibacterial and will prevent irritation. Try to wear loose fitting clothes for a few days after to give your skin a chance to breathe and reduce moisture. The bikini, lip and underarms are where we tend to perspire. Perspiration and moisture cause bacteria to grow. Once that area has been waxed, the follicle is wide open to this bacteria creeping in.

Will it make my hair grow back darker?

Let me ask you this….does your hair grow back darker when you cut it? No. Neither will your depilitated hair. Waxing will not change the pigment of your hair.

Will waxing change the pigmentation of my skin?

No, it will not cause hyperpigmentation (dark spots) on your skin, however, if you spend time in the sun after waxing, you can burn, which can result in sun damage and dark spots later on. If your skin is tan or you’ve applied sunless tanner, it will strip your tan. Remember, waxing will exfoliate your skin. The wax sticks to your skin and removes the topmost layer so you may experience some lightening if you have a dark tan from sun or sunless tanning products.

Sugaring F.A.Q.
What is the Benefits?

PURE AND NATURAL INGREDIENTS
Completely natural made from organic ingredients, sugar, lemon and water. So natural you can eat it! Safe for the most sensitive skin.

MORE SANITARY
Hypoallergenic and non-comdogenic
sugar paste is applied with a gloved hand
and a fresh ball of sugar paste is used
on each client, meaning no risk of cross contamination.

LESS PAINFUL
Sugar will not stick to live skin cells, only
dead skin cells are removed, so there is no
risk of abrasion or tearing.

NOT SO HOT
Sugar paste is luke warm when it is applied,
So there is no risk of burning the skin.

BETTER TECHNIQUE
Sugar paste is applied against the direction
of hair growth then removing the hair in
the natural direction of growth … resulting
in less painful hair removal and eliminating
hair breakage.

EXTRACT VERY SHORT HAIRS
Hair growth only needs to be 1/8 inch after shaving or 1/16 inch after sugaring! (May vary depending on individual and hair type)

SUGARING IS GENTLE
Sugaring is so gentle it can remove the
vellus hair on some woman’s faces and is
safe for clients with sensitivities, eczema
and psoriasis.

Can I be burned?

The sugar is NEVER hot. The paste is applied at a lukewarm temperature.

Does sugaring hurt as much as waxing?

Many clients describe their sugaring experiences as less painful than waxing. Also, they have found that any residual redness, if any, post treatment diminishes much more quickly. Keep in mind that hair is being removed from the follicle at the root so the extraction is not completely sensation-free. However, with regular sugaring the skin will become desensitized.

How long does my hair need to be?

We suggest hair growth length of 1/8”, but not longer than 1/4”.

What should I do to prepare for my appointment?

24 hours prior to your appointment, gently exfoliate and re-hydrate your skin. It is recommended that you arrive at your appointment with clean skin without lotions, deodorants or oils.
The very best results begin with skin care at home. Between treatments keep your skin exfoliated and well-hydrated. Also, never use a razor, depilatory creams or tweezers. This will interfere with the refinement and diminishment of your hair growth and your goal to have smooth and healthy skin.

How often will I need a treatment?

The general rule of thumb is 3-4 weeks. Treatments scheduled closer together result in faster hair refinement. Appointments will be scheduled based on your individual hair growth patterns and body part(s) treated.

Can you remove soft downfy facial hair?

We can safely remove the vellus (peach fuzz) hair on the face. The face is one of the most delicate areas for hair extraction, because of the dense amount of vellus hair. With one flick, we could remove about five hundred hairs. Since this type of hair sits on the nerve endings, it can set off the alarm in the nervous system. A patch test at your consultation can be performed if you have had a previous experience that gives you any hesitation.

Does sugaring hurt more when you have your menstrual cycle?

Some women are more sensitive at their time of the month so it is suggested you do not schedule your appointments to coincide with your menstrual cycle. Other women do not experience any increase in sensitivity. Do what you think is right for your body.

Can I go tanning before or after my appointment?

It’s best not to be in the sun or use a tanning bed for 24-48 hours before AND after your service. However, airbrush tanning is fine after waxing and sugaring.
