Is your hair long enough?
Your hair must be at least 1/4″ long – 4 weeks since your last waxing, or 2 weeks since your last shave. For Brazilian and Bikini Plus services, if your hair is too long, this is quite tangled and discomfort. To ensure an efficient service, aesthetician has to trim it shorter, and there is $10 charge for that. You can prepare yourself at home, trim hair short to about 1/4″ length (no shorter) OR simply get regular waxing every 4 weeks.
Exfoliate the waxing area 24 hours prior to your service will help loosening the hair follicles for a smoother wax, while reducing the risk of ingrown hairs.
Take painkiller or apply numbing cream 30 to 45 minutes prior to the service. Bare Ease Numbing Cream is highly recommended and it is available for purchase in-store. Order now to arrange for pick up.
Keep Me Informed.
Let me know if this is your first time waxing. This will allow me to adjust the service to your needs. Please leave me a note when you book online.
You may experience some redness which usually subsides within 24 hours. If you are first time getting waxed, you may experience more irritation than usual due to the follicles being more rooted. Apply finipil® antiseptic cream to reduce irritation, soothe the skin and prevent ingrown.
Wearing loose comfortable clothing allows the skin to breath.
Avoid excessive heat related activities, such as hot bath, steam rooms, sauna, tanning.
Avoid applying any harsh chemical products on freshly waxed area, such as: AHA, BHA.
Avoid shaving. This will make the hair grow back thicker. It also increases the risk of ingrown. Regular waxing will help the hairs become thin and finer.
Exfoliating and moisturizing your skin once or twice a week, starting 2 days after waxing.
Removing hair at its early growth stage is much easier and less painful. For the best result, book your appointment every 4 weeks.
