Q?

Waxing vs. Shaving?

A.

Waxing is better because it removes hair from the root. When you shave you just cut the hair, so two hours later, you can see the hair there or the blue shadow (the hair follicle below the skin). Waxing, on the other hand, not only can last up to a month, but it’s also much more permanent. Over time it thins the hair so less grows back. Bonus: It exfoliates the skin as well, leavingyou feeling silky smooth.

Pre-Wax Checklist

There are many methods to remove unwanted hair from the body and the method chosen really depends on each individual. Our specialty is an Authentic Brazilian Wax. Our treatments last only 15-30 minutes, depending the area you want waxed.
The hair should be at least 1/8” to 1/2 inch long for waxing to be effective.

To ensure our client's waxing experience is pleasant and successful, here are some tips:

• Stop shaving the area 10 days prior to waxing.
• Avoid exposure to ultraviolet rays (sun or tanning beds) for at least 24 to 48 hours after the service.
• Client's using the following medication should not receive hair removal treatments:
- Accutane
- Retin-A
- Renova, or
- Antibiotics

There are two types of waxes:
• Hard (no strip used) and soft (a strip is used). They are considered a no-strip-wax.
• Hard wax are gentle enough for the face and eye area, yet strong enough to be used on difficult remove coarse hairs. Soft waxes in certain area, such as the back and legs and hard wax in others, such as eyebrows, lip or underarms.
