Waxed hair grows back smooth and fine, unlike the stubble that shaving causes. Each time you wax, the hair follicle weakens and can eventually die, leaving you with less hair. Waxing also lasts significantly longer than other epilating methods.
Well, you are removing hair from the follicle so yes, it is going to hurt. However, it does get easier each time. The hair usually grows slower after the first waxing. We strive to get the wax done as quickly as possible; most all Female Brazilians are done in less than 15 minutes.
We require that you have at least a 3 week hair growth. Honestly, the longer the better for your first wax. It is VERY important to have enough hair growth when you come for your appointment. This allows the wax to grab the hairs easily. If your hair is too short, we will ask you to schedule another appointment, which means you are charged for that day's appointment as well, So please, for all of us, make sure you haven't shaved, waxed or tweezed for 3 weeks.
Usually you will need to be waxed every 3-6 weeks. The area being waxed will not necessarily be completely smooth the first few times.
It's possible but not probable. Some clients are smooth as a baby's bottom after their first experience. However, it is common that after the first 2 or 3 waxings you may feel a wee bit of stubble. NO shaving, tweezing or waxing between visits. This will cause the hair growth to be in different cycles, we want to wax when all the hair is on the same cycle.
Yes, sometimes the face, bikini, back and chest are all areas that may have a histamine reaction. You can take Benadryl to help before your wax.
You will be most comfortable if you wear loose fitting clothing and nothing too tight on the area that you are having waxed. For any Bikini waxes, I suggest wearing a skirt, nothing tight and no panties when you leave. We need this area to breathe. For back or chest waxes, it would be a good idea to wear a loose t-shirt. Sometimes you will have little blood drops. This is nothing to be concerned about. The hair was simply attached to its food source which is blood.
No, not completely. However, we will need you to undress from the waist down, including your underwear if having a Brazilian wax or a Bikini Full. I know it's a little unnerving for you, but trust me; we do these ALL day long. To us, it's all just skin and hair. So, please don't feel embarrassed. We will do our best to put you completely at ease! Please shower before your appointment. We won’t spell it out… you catch our drift.
We recommend waiting 24 hours for “extra curricular” activities or activities that cause you to get extremely hot and or sweaty. No working out, pools, hot tubs, or soaking in any water. Also, for 48 hours no sun or tanning beds.
Hair will be removed from the front to the back and everything in between. Some prefer to take everything in the bikini area and others will leave some at the top, this is really just personal preference. If you would like all the area of the glutes, we will happily wax that for an additional charge.
It all depends on the client, usually 15-30 minutes. The first time is the longest normally 30 minutes, and then the monthly upkeep is much faster at 15 minutes for most. However, most of the time we are done with the Brazilian in 15 minutes. We are also very meticulous, so we’ll make sure you don’t have hairs where you are not supposed to.
The Bikini Line is everything that would be outside of a normal pair of panties, to the crease of the leg and extending about 1.5-2 inches from the crease of the leg. The Bikini Full is much like the Brazilian, it removes as much or as little from the front side only of the bikini area. Adding in the crack makes it a Brazilian wax. If you are unsure of what kind of Bikini wax you want just book a Bikini Full and we will explain the differences.
Yep! There is no need to be concerned about waxing while you are pregnant. We wax many of our clients up to the time that they are due to deliver. It is nice to be all cleaned up down there before the baby comes. Some are just a little more tender during the wax but not all.
YES! It does not bother us at all. Just use a tampon and we will work around the string. Honestly, it happens all the time!
No, It is best to wait 48 hours before or after waxing to tan, we don't want to cause any pigmentation issues to the new skin.
Yes, appointments are REQUIRED! We cannot accept walk-ins! Please be early or on time to avoid losing your appointment. If you need to reschedule your appointment, please do so at least 24 hours in advance. If you cancel with less than 24-hour notice, you will be expected to pay 50% of your service as a no show fee. After 1 no show you will be required to prepay for your service
Perfection by Elena Wax studio policy is to allow one person in the treatment room at a time, unless it is a minor getting waxed then a parent is allowed in the room. We have found that this allows us to give the absolute best and most professional service available.
If you are on or have been on Accutane in the last year then you should not be waxed! You need to wait 1 year before waxing. The skin is generally very sensitive during and after Accutane. If you use Retin-A, Glycolic, Salicylic, other acid treatments and certain medications you may not be able to be waxed for up to 2 weeks after you have stopped using them.
