frequently asked questions
Allow your hair to grow. The hair needs to be at least 1/4 of an inch long which typically takes two to three weeks of growth. I know that may seem crazy but the longer the hair, the better the results.
Exfoliate your skin. One of my favorite ways to do so is with a spa glove which can be found at your local Target, CVS, etc. gentle exfoliators are acceptable but please make sure they are GENTLE.
Moisturize your skin leading up to your appointment especially during dry months. We recommend not putting moisturizer on the day of your appointment but beforehand is great!
We do offer a numbing spray for those who would like to take a bit of the edge off. Please arrive 5-10 minutes early to spray.
Taking ibuprofen beforehand is always helpful.
Please stay away from caffeine before your appointment as this does awaken the nervous system and can make your wax more painful.
Waxing during your menstrual cycle is not a problem as long as a tampon is worn. Just note that you may be a tad bit more sensitive but we do understand that sometimes Aunt Flo’s visit can’t be predicted and often comes at the most inconvenient times.
Please obstain from using retinoids 2-3 days prior to waxing as these can cause skin sensitivities and irritation.
