most commonly asked questions

Does waxing hurt?

Waxing does involve some pain, but if done with our express technique it is a lot less painful.

For first timers it can be more uncomfortable, but we minimise the pain by using a special 3D Film waxes that does not adhere to the skin. Many clients said that it is not as bad as they imagined it would be ... and far less painful than normal strip wax!!!

The benefits of waxing outweigh the few seconds of stinging :)

Why remove hair with wax?

Waxing makes your skin feel soft and lasts much longer than shaving. Shaving stimulates potential hair growth, but waxing decreases hair growth. Some people use wax because they feel it is more hygienic and it IS! Hair holds moisture and moisture holds odor. By removing the hair, you stay cleaner and fresher longer. With wax, your hair will come back thinner and less noticeable. Eventually, they won’t grow any more.

How often do I have to wax?

Every 4-6 weeks. We needs at least 5mm of hair for the wax to adhere to. Some men go every 4 weeks for a intimate wax, but others every 2 months. The more regular is better, exacly more wax = longer results last.

How can I avoid in-growing hairs?

Exfoliate the skin thoroughly to remove dead skin cells. Moisturise the skin every day. If the skin is supple new growth can break through more easily reducing the risk of in-growing hairs and infection.

Waxing will be much better for you than shaving. However, if you want to take care of existing ingrown hair faster and avoid new ones to come, we highly recommend ,Australian Medical Paste' that does an excellent job on stubborn hair ( ask in our Salon)

What if Im pregnant?

You can still get various wax procedures. A new trend for moms-to-be is to get a Brazilian wax right before childbirth.

How should I prepare for my treatment?

If possible, gently exfoliate the areas you are having waxed for a few days before your appointment. This helps to remove any dead skin cells and lifts the hair, enabling me to remove as many hairs as possible.

Please have a shower or bath before your appointment.

Do not shave or use hair removal creams on the area for at least 3 weeks before your appointment, as hair needs to be a minimum of ½cm long to get removed successfully.

Wear a clean, loose-fitting t-shirt if you're having your back or chest waxed, loose trousers for leg waxing, and clean cotton underwear for all intimate waxing.

How should I care for my skin afterwards?

Please note: slight soreness, small bumps and redness are common and perfectly normal temporary reactions, particularly if it's your first wax, or ur hairs are thick and strong. These symptoms should subside over the next 24 - 48 hours. If you experience persistent redness or irritation, or you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

  • AFTERCARE (around 24-48 hours after treatment) :

    • Keep the waxed area clean, and avoid heat and friction

    • No hot baths or showers (min. 4 hours after treatment)

    • No saunas, hot tubs or steam rooms

    • No tanning (sunbathing, sunbeds or fake tans)

    • No sport, gym work or other exercise

    • Avoid touching the waxed skin with unwashed hands

    • Wear clean, loose fitting clothing

    • Avoid swimming

    • Do not apply deodorants, body sprays, powders, lotions or other products to the area, other than those recommended by me

    • To soothe and protect the skin, wash your hands and apply an antiseptic cream to the waxed area regularly for 3 days following your treatment

    • Use an antibacterial skin wash

Im going on my Holidays tomorrow... It's OK ?

Not really ....Get it done 3-5 days before!

I do not recommend having your first wax immediately before a special occasion or holiday because the treated area needs to calm down afterwards. Your skin may look a little pink and slightly bumpy straight afterwards and also any sun exposure could irritate the skin further.

Is there any reason I can't get waxed?

There are a few reasons why you may not be able to get waxed, or you may need a medical referral or I may just need to be aware of an issue. Please check through the following list below (and continued on the next page) and if you answer yes to any of the questions, please call me to discuss. Please be honest as everything is confidential and I don't want to have to turn you away when you've arrived for your appointment.

  • Are you taking oral skin thinning supplement or a medication pill such as Accutane, Vit. A

  • Have you had recent surgery or medical treatment?

  • Any injuries or areas of tenderness?

  • Do you have Diabetes?

  • Do you have any recent scar tissue, cuts, bruises or other abrasions to the area being waxed?

  • Do you have sunburn or heat allergies?
