Got questions about waxing? Take a look at the frequently asked questions below.
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.
Some individuals prefer the line of hair to be a bit higher than others, and this can be discussed with your waxing technician.
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.
