Interested in waxing? Allow ME to lay down the ground rules. I so *heart* my job, that I am not just saying this STUFF for my health. These are things that need to be done before each session with ME.
Just so you know…Dry dehydrated skin does not wax well. You will need to ‘put some lotion on’ everyday the week prior to your session and continue after you’ve waxed. Just in case you were wondering what to use, since 2007 clients have *loved* and recommended Prince Reigns Ingrown hair serum, for their pre and post waxing needs. You can get yours for only $32.99.
Yes. Since I am a one woman show…the online booking thing makes life easy. Give it a try, you’ll see.
Who are your clients?
My clientele consists of the most amazing people. I wax many a professional folk including, but certainly not limited to attorneys, doctors, nurses, engineers, the non-profit sector, actors, physical therapists, and quite a few entrepreneurs. I don’t wax people that I don’t like.
What if I absolutely
I hate shaving, what can you do for me?
For starters I can wax you, and you have to be committed to waxing regularly. Every 4 weeks is recommended for body waxing. I also offer Depilar System™ an enzyme based hair reduction system. Depilar System™ uses the latest in advanced scientific research to offer an effective and affordable method for reduction of unwanted body hair for all sexes, races, hair colors, and hair types.
How old do I have to be to get waxed?
18 or older.
Does waxing hurt?
Absolutely, but to help minimize the pain we now retail Dr. Edna’s Bare Ease for $19.99. It makes for a virtually “Ouch Less” bikini wax.
Is my skin going to be red, now that I’ve waxed?
Possibly. Here’s the deal if you’ve done everything that you should have like ‘put some lotion on it’ and washed before waxing. Then the redness should subside with in 24-48 hours.
How often should I wax?
Typically bikini and body waxing should be done every 4 weeks, and facial waxing done every 3 weeks.
I have an STD/STI (sexually transmitted disease or infection), can I still wax?
Has it been longer than 2 hours since I’ve washed the area to be waxed (it’s rhetorical )?
If you’ve gone numbers 1 or 2, had sex, went to the gym, or were sweating at any point before your session pretty puhlease WASH YOUR bleep.
- I think it’s nasty if you don’t.
- because you wouldn’t be playing fair.
- more than likely you will get a gross infection, because your skin is not clean.
*If you can’t shower right before your session I do sell SweetSpot Labs on-the-go wipettes.
Has it been at minimum two weeks since you last shaved, tweezed, waxed or Nair’d?
If you answer NO. Then you need to wait and schedule after you’ve reached the two week mark. If you come for an appointment before the two week grow out phase is complete. YOU will be charged the full session rate, and asked to reschedule.
Two weeks of hair growth is the requirement for everyone NO EXCEPTIONS. Don’t worry about trimming, I will take care of it for you. * The science…everyone’s hair grows roughly 0.5 inches per month (doing the math it would take you 1/2 of a month to reach the desired length of 1/4 of an inch). Skin that’s dehydrated gives the illusion that hair is growing at an alarming rate, but this is not the case. Remember, ‘put some lotion on it’.
I’m on my Period, can I still wax?
No way Jose’. You will need to wait until you are completely finished with your period. It makes me throw up in my mouth just thinking about it, and besides during this time your body tends to be more sensitive, making this wax way more painful. If you arrive for your session and are on your period. YOU will be charged the full session rate, and asked to reschedule.
I’m Pregnant, can I still wax?
Congrats Mama-to-be. As long as you don’t have any have any of the contraindications listed below that can result in a Skintastrophe, by all means you can wax. Feel free to have a chat with your OB and get their thoughts, if you’re still unsure.
I have dry skin, can I wax?
Yes, but you will want to discontinue using any products that are overly drying, or that over exfoliate your skin as not doing so may cause burning, tears and or even scabbing. FYI: Dry dehydrated skin does not wax well, so remember to ‘put some lotion on it’.
When was the last time that I tanned?
If your answer is less than 48 hours. You will need to wait to schedule your session with ME. Not playing fair and following the rules can result in damage to your skin.
Sidenotes to my sun getters
I’m not your mom and I’m not interested in preaching to you, but I wouldn’t be a good esthetician if I didn’t at least make mention of the importance of sunscreen. Sunscreen is Important!
Hey, I’m all about the K.I.S.S factor. Solise is just that, a very simple solution to our SPF dilemmas. It’s SPF 15 in a body or handwash that lasts all day. Yep your prayers have been answered, and you can buy that here at the studio or in my online store.
So can I have sex, now that I’m waxed?
Medical professionals don’t recommend hot passionate for a least 24 hours after waxing. They don’t want you to cross contaminate the playground, but it’s your bikini…I just ask that you keep it cleany=).
Can I workout after my wax?
No. You should wait at least 24 hours and clean your skin immediately after you are done with your workout. Not doing so can result in unsightly breakouts.
What can I do, now that I’m waxed?
You can carry on life as usual. Just don’t do the following for at least 8 hours=).
No HOT showers. No Heavy Moisturizes. No AntiPersperants. No Makeup (for those that wax your face).
Doing any of these things & waxing = a Skintastrophe
Botox treatments within 72 hours of waxing, retin-a, accutane, alpha hydroxy, tetracycline, diabetes, & phlebitis. These are only a few of the products and conditions that I’m aware of. If ever in doubt do not wax and consult with your doctor.
I cannot predict how your skin will react to waxing, therefore for special occasions I recommend a test wax two to four weeks prior to the event. If there is no major reaction then you can come in to be waxed at least a week before your special day.
