Why Waxing is Better

Waxed areas stay softer and smoother considerably longer than shaved areas. Facial and body waxing removes the hair from the follicle, as opposed to cutting it off above the surface. This results in hair growing back softer and smoother, leaving you stubble free. It’s also very affordable to wax small areas like the chin, brows, and sideburns. You won’t break the bank even if you opt to wax from head to toe!

One of the biggest benefits of waxing hair is that the more you wax, the less hair you will grow over time. Another distinct advantage to waxing is that the results can last much longer than other hair removal solutions – up to three weeks. No shaving, no hassle, no stress.

How Should I Prepare for my Waxing Appointment?

It’s important to let your hair grow out for about two to three weeks prior to coming in for your waxing appointment. Having your hair grown out a bit longer than you’d like is necessary for any hair removing service. Never apply moisturizer before your appointment, as it can make the hairs slippery, and therefore, the treatment less effective. Using facial scrubs or abrasives within a week of your appointment should be avoided as well. If you are planning on scheduling a chemical peel or a laser skin rejuvenation, you should plan on spacing your waxing and the other treatment(s) a few weeks apart.

I just had Botox/Filler/Laser Procedure. Can I Get A Waxing Treatment Too?

Every situation is different, and you should ask our aesthetician directly if you are interested in combining procedures. In general, you will want to avoid combining these treatments on the same day. It is possible that the waxing process will irritate the skin, shift the filler, or cause other negative effects. However, you will be able to schedule your waxing appointment a short time after your other procedure, per the recommendation of our aesthetician.

Is it Okay to Schedule a Wax Treatment When I am Pregnant?

Yes! A waxing treatment is perfectly safe for you and your baby. Just keep in mind that you may experience a bit more sensitivity than you would if you were not pregnant.

How Should I Care for My Skin After Waxing?

After a waxing treatment, you should avoid sun exposure as well as any skin care product that contains alcohol, acids, or strong chemicals for the first 24 hours following your treatment. Each of these things can cause irritation or scabbing. If you are prone to rashes, keep some ice on hand and slide the ice over the waxed area to help reduce the chance of a rash occurring. Massage your skin with a gentle, quality moisturizer to avoid dryness, and for even better results, apply aloe vera gel every day for one week. To keep that smooth skin silky, begin exfoliating regularly after about three days.
