How long can I expect my waxing to last?

Depending on the kind of hair removal used so far and the individual hair growth you can expect waxing to last between four to six weeks.

Does waxing hurt?

Speed and great quality of products used are the key to painfree waxing. Our waxes are formulated to make this procedure, performed by a licensed DEPILADORA very comfortable. Because the hair bulb is removed with the hair the treatment is not completely painfree, at least not the first time. But continuous waxing causes hair to grow back finer, sparser, slower and weaker therefore making waxing less painful.

Can waxing cause skin irritations?

Some people will experience a rash after waxing. It is not a break out and will only last a few hours. This is a normal reaction that occurs when the hair removed is attached to the hair bulb and when the pores open up momentarily. The more often waxing is used the finer the hair will become and growth will eventually cease.

Waxers swear by Tend Skin, Ingrown Zone, Tea Tree Products or Aloe Vera Products. We use these for your body, the suitable product after Hair removal to prevent ingrown hair and trritations. All of these after waxing products are excellent to prepare your skin for your next waxing session. They will permit to lift ingrown hair and making the removal easier through pre-exfoliation.

Which kind of wax is used for waxing?

Our wax, based on natural ingredients such as beeswax, is perfectly suited for the removal of all unwanted body hair. Beeswax is known to have a calming, soothing and nourishing effect on the skin. With our specially developed technique, wax is applied at a temperature slightly above body temperature, allowing the pores to open up, and making the process of hair removal without waxing strips for delicate facial and intimate areas almost painless. We are able to shape your brows without the risk of hurting or over-exfoliating your most sensitive skin.

We need to be informed about any usage of strong exfoliants or acne medication orally and topically used prior to waxing. We have alternative procedures if waxing is not for you. Please discontinue all aspirin or exfoliators 7 days prior to your appointments.

Hair from larger body areas will be gently and quickly removed with our famous olive oil and-beewax, superthin formula.

What’s wrong with shaving?

You can use the good old razor. People have been working with it for the longest time. It is quick, convenient and the results are…ok.

But here comes the downside: Shaving can be a real hassle. Many of us are plagued with skin irritations, ingrown hair, and don’t forget the cuts and the ugly sensation of itching skin as the hair grows back.  And your hair will grow back!

Is it true that if you shave your hair gets thicker?

With every shaving session you strengthen the roots, make the growing hair healthier, and thicker.  Just like when you give your head hair a regular trim you revive it, you get the same results with every day shaving. Waxing changes the structure of your hair follicle. Thick coarse hair becomes softer, finer and smaller and weaker. You will notice that the time between waxing treatments will increase with continuous waxing, hair growth will become sparse and eventually cease.

What should I wear after a wax?

You should wear loose clothing for 24 hours after the waxing. Do not wear tights, leggings or hose for 24 hours if your service was a bikini or Brazilian.

Can I tan after a wax?

Please do not expose fresh waxed skin to tanning beds for 48 hours. You risk the sunburn of your life and you could hyperpigment.

When can I bathe?

You can bathe or shower right after your waxing service – use mild soap and warm water instead of hot. Always wash with a clean wash cloth. Do not use loofahs or mesh sponges as these harbor bacteria and can cause break outs. Do not swim in chlorinated water, pools or rivers for 24 hours.

Can I put lotions or other products on freshly waxed areas?

Do not apply any moisturizers or lotions, other than those recommended below, for 24 hours. Do not apply talc, body sprays or perfume for 24 hours on freshly waxed skin.
