Frequently Asked Questions

Q. DOES WAXING HURT?

A. There is some discomfort involved, however most clients find it quite

tolerable. Our Wax Specialist are quick and thorough and because of our

specialized technique the pain is greatly minimized. If you are still

concerned with pain, all locations sell Dr. Edna’s BareEase cream. This

cream is 4% lidocaine and significantly decreases the sensitivity of the skin

during waxing procedures.

Q. IS WAXING SANITARY?

A. Our salons are held to the top sanitary standards. Each treatment room is

thoroughly sanitized. Our wax specialists never double dip our sticks. You

can be sure that you are receiving a clean service every time you walk in

our doors.

Q. DO I NEED AN APPOINTMENT?

A. No, We are a walk in salon only! Stop in at your convenience.

Q. CAN I BE WAXED IF I’M TAKING ACCUTANE?

A. No, absolutely not. We can however tweeze your brows to perfection.

Q. OTHER MEDICATIONS TO BE AWARE OF?

A. Retin-A, Salicylic Acid, Glycolic Acid, Differin, Tazorac, Avage, Strivectin,

Renova, ProActive, Avita, Benzoyl Peroxide. All of the above can enhance

skin sensitivity that could lead to lifting of the skin when removing hair.

Please let us know if you use any of these. It is a good idea to refrain from using

these products a few days before your service.

Q. CAN I TAN BEFORE OR AFTER A WAX?

A. You should wait 3-5 days to get waxed after you have tanned. You should

never get waxed if you are sunburned or even if skin is pink. The very top

layer of skin could "lift" which is painful and can result in scabbing. You

should wait for 48hrs after you have waxed to tan. Waxed skin is more is

more susceptible to burning.

Q. CAN SOMEONE COME IN THE TREATMENT ROOM WITH ME?

A. For the safety and privacy of our clients we ask only the client be in the

treatment room with the Wax specialist.

Q. WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BIKINI, FRENCH, & BRAZILIAN?

A. Bikini- We wax just outside of your underwear line.

French- Leaves about a 2inch strip all the way down. A little further in than

the bikini and the backside.

Brazilian- The whole she-bang, with an option to leave a strip, triangle or

shape on top.

Q. CAN YOU GET WAXED WHILE PREGNANT?

A. There is no reason you cannot get waxed during your pregnancy.  We

would prefer you discuss with your Physician, however, before you visit.

Q. HOW LONG SHOULD MY HAIR BE BEFORE I WAX?

A. For any body waxing service we recommend a full 2 weeks of growth from your last shave or trim. 

3 weeks from nair or similar products. Underarms are the exception with only 1.5-2 weeks of growth.

Q. HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

A. It depends on the service, however due to our proprietary speed waxing

technique our Wax Specialist move quickly.

Q. IS IT OKAY TO SHAVE IN BETWEEN WAXES?

A. We don’t advise shaving in between waxes. Waxing slows down and

reduces hair growth. Hair also grows much thinner thus making it easier to

remove and less painful when waxed. Shaving just one time in between

will negate all that is gained from waxing and can further irritate follicles

which can cause ingrown hairs.

Q. HOW LONG CAN I EXPECT MY WAXING TO LAST?

A. Depending on the area of the body.

Facial waxing- 2-3 weeks

Underarm waxing- 2-3 weeks

Body/Brazilian waxing- 4-6 weeks

Q. WILL MY HAIR GROW BACK THICKER OR DARKER?

A. No, it will grow back thinner and softer.

Q. WILL PRICE DECREASE IF I DON’T HAVE VERY MUCH HAIR?

A. Our prices do not reflect the quantity of hair, but the area that is being

waxed.
