Body Waxing FAQ

Usually your wax will last between 3–6 weeks but everyone’s rate of regrowth is different so results will vary for everyone. Hair will begin to grow back softer and thinner following your first visit. TIP: Don’t wait till it fully grows back. If the hair is long enough to pull then its time for your next visit.
Yes, you can still wax but you may experience more skin sensitivity due to the hormonal changes your body is going through. We will try to make you as comfortable as possible during the service. We recommend checking with your OB/GYN during the last two months of pregnancy.
Wait at least 24–48 hours between waxing and tanning because your skin may be more sensitive and you’re more likely to experience sunburn.
We always say that if you can grab the hair then so can the wax.
Sure, just be aware that the area is more sensitive and you may experience more discomfort than usual. We ask that you apply new tampon prior to your appointment.
It is important that we know any medications that you are taking and/or any skin products that you are using. This can ensure a safe and successful waxing experience. If you are taking or have taken any of these medications within the past three months, we need to talk. Please contact before scheduling an appointment: Accutane (Acne medication) Adapalene (Acne medication) Alustra (Retin A) Antibiotics Avage (Tazorac – Acne medication) Avita (type of Retin A) Clindamycin Differin (Acne medication) Doxycycline Erythromycin Isotretinoin (like Accutane) Madifloxicine Metronidazole Minocycline Renova (Retin A) Tazarac (Acne medication) Tazarotene (like Tazorac) Tetracycline Tretinoin (like Retin A) These medications may cause the skin to thin or to be extra sensitive to waxing. Thin, sensitive skin can lift with the wax. If you have taken Accutane within the last year it is not advised to wax for one year after you have stopped taking this medication. If you are currently using any of the following products, they can cause the skin to be overly sensitive. Please inform me prior to your appointment. Other Acne medications not listed above Alpha Hydroxy Acids (Glycolic, Lactic) Topical Antibiotics Retinol Salicylic Acid Exfoliants/Laser Peels/Microdermabrasion Remember, it’s important that you inform or update you consent form on what medications you may be taking so we can provide you with a safe waxing experience. If you are taking a medication or using a product that has changed your skin in any way, and you are unsure about the safety of waxing, please talk to your doctor first.

Laser Hair Removal FAQ

What are the most popular areas for laser hair removal?

The most popular areas are female facial hair, bikini line hair and back hair for men.

What are the risks of hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a lunch time procedure. There is no recovery time. Patients can return to work or play immediately. These lasers do not remove skin, so the risks are very low. As with any procedure, we have an informed consent that explains all the possible risks.

How old do you have to be for laser hair removal?

There really is no age limit, but we never treat toddlers. Young people that are not finished growing will develop new hair as they grow, and will require touch ups to maintain the results. We currently do not treat children under the age of 13. Older people usually have gray hair that will not respond to laser.

Is it painful?

Compared to waxing the treatment has very little discomfort. Everyone's pain tolerance is different, our laser has a cooling tip just to address this problem.

I have dark skin but I am tired of shaving and dealing with shave bumps and ingrown hairs. Would laser hair removal work for me? Is it safe for me skin?

Yes. We researched and found the perfect laser for every one of our clients skin types (excluding blond or gray hair) which is the diode laser it more effective than YAG lasers when it comes to darker skin types. Its longer wavelength safely bypasses the skin and targets the melanin in the hair shaft, destroying the unwanted hair follicle. You will love your results!

How long before I see results?

All results are individual based do to preparation and the 3 growth cycles. The diode laser has to target the melanin in the hair shaft so don't remove it below the surface by plucking, threading or tweezing. We recommend to start shaving the area but not removing hair from the follicle for at least 1 month before your first treatment.
