What is waxing?
Waxing is a popular, safe and effective semi-permanent method of hair removal that uses heated wax to remove unwanted facial and body hair from the root. It can be performed on any part of the body, including the face, legs, arms, back & bikini area.
How often do I need to come in to get waxed?
Consistency is the key to achieving the best hair reduction results, we recommend waxing every 4-8 weeks as this will allow all the undergrowth to grow together. Although results can vary with each person due to different hair types and the frequency of scheduled waxing appointments, waxing does cause the follicles to produce hair at a slower rate and can result in noticeable hair reduction in the waxed area.
How do I prepare my skin before waxing?
Hair growth needs to be at least ¼ inch from the skins surface so the wax can adhere to the hair. Longer hair should be trimmed before waxing. Exfoliating your skin days prior to waxing will aid in the removal of dead skin cells and allow for the wax to easily adhere to the hair. Please avoid exfoliating the day of’ you waxing appointment.
What type of wax does Spa 901 use?
We use two kinds: Strip Wax and Hard Wax, with the most up to date techniques to minimize pain and protect the skin.
Hard wax is a gentle, peel off wax applied thickly on the skin. As this wax dries on the skin it is removed with a quick flick of the hand, pulling in the opposite direction to hair growth. This wax is designed for thicker hair on delicate skin in sensitive areas.
Strip wax is applied thinly and removed with a waxing strip; used for large areas and areas with fine hairs, it is multi-purpose and is so versatile that it can be used in all areas.
Will Price decrease if I don’t have a lot of hair?
No, our charges are determined per service, not by amount of hair.
What’s the difference between bikini and brazilian wax?
Bikini – hair that extends outside of the panty line or crease of thigh will be removed.
Brazilian – all hair, including the backside, will be removed (some prefer leaving a small patch in front)
Does waxing hurt?
The amount of discomfort experienced when waxing depends on the individual. Waxing offers an affordable way to keep skin smooth for longer periods than shaving so you don’t have to wax as often. A tingling sensation can be felt immediately after waxing, this is the tiny nerve endings in your hair follicles reacting to the removal of the hair, and this will pass in seconds. If you are new to waxing you may experience more discomfort, however after regular waxing the discomfort lessens because the hair follicle becomes weaker.
- Exfoliating days before you plan to wax as this will ease the pain by eliminating dead skin cells
- If female, avoid waxing within a week before your period, this is when you’re extra-sensitive to pain. Please keep in mind; Women’s tolerance to pain may vary at different points in their menstrual cycle.
- Excessive caffeine, salt & alcohol, and a lack of sleep may affect the skins’ overall sensitivity.
Is waxing suited for everyone?
Waxing isn’t for everybody. There are certain medications and topical products that increase the rate at which your skin exfoliates, therefore waxing could potentially remove skin as well as hair. Also, be aware that chemical peels, laser, and micro-dermabrasion can also affect skin integrity and pose a contraindication to a waxing service. We ask that you inform your waxing technician immediately if you are on any medications or if you have undergone/ used any skin resurfacing services and/or products.
Precautions and considerations:
- Sunburned, irritated or areas with open skin cannot be waxed.
- Moles cannot be waxed.
- If irritation should occur, recommend you use a cold compress and an antibiotic ointment such as Polysporin to keep the area continually moist to avoid infection and scabbing.
- No sun/tanning booths for 2 days following a waxing treatment. Extra precaution should be taken if using tanning accelerators.
- No hot baths, hot tubs & pools for 24 hours following a body waxing treatment.
- No abrasives for 24 hours following a waxing treatment.
- No deodorants for 12-24 hours following an underarm waxing treatment.
- Women may experience extra sensitivity to waxing up to a week prior to the beginning of their menstrual cycle.
Can I be waxed if I’m taking Retin A, Renova, or Accutane?
Other medications to be aware of?
There are many medications that affect skin and skin integrity (glycolic acid, lactic acid, benzyl peroxide, salicylic acid, alpha hydroxyl acid, vitamin A, prescribed exfoliating scrubs, antibiotics, hormonal medications, radiation and/or chemotherapy drugs). Please consult with your physician in regards to any medications and how it may affect your waxing experience. Some brand names to be aware of: Adapalene, Avita, Tazorac Avage, Proactiv(e), Differin, Strivectin.
