What is Waxing?
Waxing is a safe and effective method of removing unwanted facial and body hair using heated wax. The warm wax is applied to the desired area using a wooden applicator, the wax is quickly removed along with the unwanted hair.

What is the appropiate length of hair for waxing?
1/4 inch of growth should be present for effective waxing. Approximatley 10-14 days of hair growth.

Are there risks to waxing?
If you are using any vitamin-A based products such as Retin-A, Renova, or Differin, or if you use products containing glycolic acid, salicylic acid or any other preparation designed to peel the skin, please refrain from using them at least 48 hours prior to and after your waxing service.

Waxing should not be performed on individuals who have used Accutane within the last year (minimum). Please inform me of the use of any of these products within the last 6 months. If you are experiencing dry skin or have been exposed to the outdoors (wind and sun) please inform me at the time of service. Avoid sun exposure/tanning for at least 2 days prior and post.

Avoid aspirin and other blood thinners. An over-the-counter pain medication such as Tylenol or ibuprofen can be taken one hour prior to waxing. Remember, even if all these tips are followed there can still be some post-waxing irritation due to hormones, stress, general skin sensitivity or other factors. Therefore, for special occasions, it is best to schedule your waxing at least 5 days prior.

How often should I get a facial treatment?

That depends on what you are trying to accomplish with your skin. Once a month is common along with proper maintnance at home, unless you get a series of treatments that require you to do it more often.
