          Waxing FAQ
What is waxing?
Waxing is the removal of unwanted facial and body hair by
the root.  Warm Wax the consistency of honey is applied over
the hair to be removed and a cotton strip is pressed over the
wax.  Then the strip, wax and hair are removed together in a
quick pull.

Does it hurt?
It's most uncomfortable at first since it's a new sensation.  Any
discomfort dissipates quickly and decreases with regular
treatments, as less hair is removed each time.  Caffeine,
menstruation and pregnancy increase skin sensitivity.

How long does it last?
Hair typically grows back several weeks after your treatment.
 For best results waxing should be repeated every 4-8 weeks,
although once a year before your warm-weather vacation is
fine, too!

How long does my hair need to be?
1/4" - 1/2" long, or at least 3 weeks growth.  If too short, hair
won't come out.  If too long, hair will break and the service
will be less comfortable.  

Will my hair grow back thicker?
No, but after removing hair lightened by the sun darker
re-growth may appear thicker.  Often hair grows in sparser
after regular treatments, and since waxing removes hair by
the root, a soft new hair with a fine tip grows in, eliminating
razor stubble.

Is waxing okay for everybody?
It's fine for most everyone, but isn't appropriate for those on
certain medications such as Retinolds and Accutane, or for people
with diabetes or particular skin conditions.
 If this is the case for
you, I'll be happy to discuss other options.
Honey Wax is used for the quickest, most
comfortable waxing, then a calming serum is
applied to reduce redness.  Hair should be
about 1/4" long for the best results.

Waxing is contraindicated for use with
Retinoids,  Accutane or allergies to latex
