Tips Before Waxing

Know the contraindications and communicate with your waxing technician about any procedures you have received on the potential waxing area.

  • Avoid sun exposure/tanning for at least 5 days prior.
  • Avoid heavy exercise/sweating for 8 hours prior.
  • Avoid aspirin and other blood thinners. You may take an over-the-counter pain medication such as Tylenol or ibuprofen one hour prior to waxing.

Remember, one can follow all of these tips and still have some post-waxing irritation due to hormones, stress, general skin sensitivity or other factors. Therefore, for special occasions, it is best to schedule your waxing at least 7 days prior.

Tips After Waxing

A person's skin will be much more sensitive after waxing.

  • Avoid tanning and be sure to use sunscreen with at least SPF 20.
  • Avoid use of exfoliate scrubs, AHAs, glycolics, and other ingredients that peel or exfoliate the skin for 72 hours following waxing.
  • To prevent or treat ingrown hairs, apply TendSkin 24 hours post-waxing (not sooner).
  • For body waxing, a gentle scrub can be used 72 hours post-waxing. To soothe any irritation, apply to the affected area.
  • Avoid heavy exercise/sweating for 8 hours following waxing, especially if one is particularly sensitive or irritated.

Waxing FAQs

Got questions about waxing? Take a look at the frequently asked questions below.

The difference between a bikini wax and a Brazilian is location.

Basic Bikini Wax

A basic bikini wax removes the hair growing outside the bikini line, so that if one is wearing a speedo or bikini underwear, he/she will have a neat, clean appearance.

Extended Bikini Wax

Some individuals prefer the line of hair to be a bit higher than others, and this can be discussed with your waxing technician.

Brazilian Wax

A Brazilian wax is different in that it removes all of the hair from the bikini area, not just the hair that grows outside of the bikini line.

Brazilian waxing has become very popular in recent years, and one should not feel embarrassed by the process.

Please discuss your preference before the start of your service.

A 1/4" of growth should be present for effective waxing. This is normally about 10-14 days after shaving.

Typically hair grows back in 2-9 weeks depending on the individual. Due to cycles of hair growth one may experience re-growth sooner. This is not the waxed hair growing back: it is the emergence of hair that was not present at the time of waxing.

With regular waxing early on, one can decrease the frequency because regrowth is usually less and hair tends to become finer.

Waxing is an exfoliation of the skin. Often, when the wax is removed, surface cells are also removed. Exfoliation is healthy for the skin (even encouraged), however, too much can cause redness, irritation, and even rawness. Rarely, hyperpigmentation can result. Some clients get ingrown hairs post-waxing, especially in areas where the waxed hair is coarse and/or curly.

Waxing should not be performed on any area that has been exposed within the last 2 weeks to vitamin-A based products such as: Retin-A, Renova, or Differin. Please inform your waxing technician of the use of any of these products within the last 6 months. Waxing should not be performed on individuals who have used Accutane within the last year, if you have ever used Accutane, please alert your technician.

If one is using products containing glycolic acid, salicylic acid or any other preparation designed to peel the skin, it should be discontinued for 3-5 days prior to any waxing. Waxing should not be used on areas of skin affected by warts, moles, or other skin irritations. One should not receive waxing if one is diabetic or has any circulatory problems. Waxing should not be performed on areas with hydrocortisone, broken blood vessels, or varicose veins.

Very nice staff and the service was excellent.
