In order to get waxed successfully you must let your hair grow to at least 1/4 of an inch (a grain of rice) or longer pre-appointment. If your hair is longer than 1/4, do not trim or shave before your appointment. If your hair is less than 1/4 of an inch long, the wax will not be able to grab the hair. It is suggested to wait at least 3-4 weeks without any shaving, waxing or trimming before your wax appointment.
Getting a Brazilian wax can be one of the most intimate services. Your esthetician is trained to make you feel as comfortable as possible. For your comfort, we recommend taking ibuprofen 30 minutes before your scheduled appointment. The waxing process goes very quickly which helps make the experience easier for the client. Please read about our hygiene policy below under "Our Policies."
Before you can receive any treatments with us you must read and sign the Client Health Consent Form. This contract can be found by clicking the button below. If the form has not been submitted before your appointment, you will be not be able to come in for the appointment.
Sometimes clients may experience red bumps immediately after a wax. This is normal and very common for first time wax clients. Pustules or folliculitis can occur 24-48 hours post wax. This is also common and we have some tips and tricks listed below to help combat these annoyances.
After you get waxed you may experience redness, soreness, sensitivity, or small red bumps. Waxing causes your follicles to open up, making you more prone to breakouts. To help prevent folliculitis (or breakouts) we suggest that clients not do rigorous activities 48 hours post-wax. Be gentle with the area and try to keep it clean and dry. When the hair starts to grow back on certain parts of the body, the hair can sometimes get trapped underneath the skin. This is called an ingrown hair, which can be lessened by using an all-natural body scrub or exfoliating glove a few days per week in the shower in between wax appointments. Products that can be applied post wax to help prevent ingrown hairs and inflammation include PFB, TendSkin, and Finipil cream which can all be purchased on Amazon. Ingrown hair removal is included in any service you book with us!
