How long does hair need to be for waxing?
For a great wax, hair should have at least 10 days of growth from your last shave. On every area of the body, the longer the hair the better the results.
Is waxing painful?
The answer to this question is it depends. For many people, yes waxing is painful. The first time a person waxes, their hair follicles aren’t used to being pulled out so they hold tightly to the hair. As one continues to wax, the follicles begin to soften and pull much easier with each wax.
Are there medications I cannot use while waxing?
You cannot be waxed if you are taking any antibiotics, Accutane, Differin, or Retin A. Any medications that list “sun sensitivity” as a side effect will also preclude you from being waxed. You should also avoid waxing while using glycolic acid, harsh exfoliants, or any facial peels.
All these products thin out and weaken your skin, making you more sensitive and likely to burn or peel. You should wait 2-6 weeks — depending on how long you have been on the medication — before you wax, as we want to make sure the medication is out of your system so you have the most pleasant waxing experience. If you are not sure of how you may react from any other prescriptions you may be taking, please give us a call beforehand so we can help determine if you are able to wax.
What is hair regrowth like?
It’s nothing like shaving! When you shave, you cut the hair off at the root and when the hair grows back (the next day) a sharp, prickly feeling can occur. When you wax, the hair is pulled from the root and a brand new hair must develop and grow up toward the surface. This leaves you with baby-like fuzz. It’s not prickly, itchy, or rough.
How often should I wax?
Our waxing salon estheticians suggests that you wax every 3-6 weeks, depending on the area of the body you are waxing. However, with a Brazilian wax, we suggest every 3-4 weeks.
Should I trim my hair before waxing?
No! Don’t worry about taking any length off. Your esthetician will take care of all of that for you.
Can I wax on my menstrual cycle?
There is no problem with waxing on your cycle. We suggest that you wear a tampon and take some ibuprofen. Women tend to be a little more tender around the time of the month and the week prior, but waxing is definitely doable.
Can I wax if I’m pregnant?
Yes. In fact, a pre-labor wax is becoming quite popular. Let’s face it, there comes a point when you can’t see what’s going on down there and need a little help. Our waxing salons in Salt Lake City and Sandy take care of everything for you. You may be a bit more tender while pregnant, but when maintained, it’s not too bad.
What is the skins’ reaction to waxing?
After your wax, when you sit up to take in the view, expect the skin to be a little red and bumpy for a short while. Waxing is heavy exfoliation on the skin, but redness should subside within a few hours.
What does a Brazilian wax mean?
Simply put, a Brazilian wax is front to back and in-between hair removal in the genital area. We provide female and male Brazilian wax services.
How long does a waxing take?
Our waxing salons can get you in and out with your wax in about 15 minutes. If multiple areas are being waxed, ask about how long the process will take when you make an appointment.
How long will the waxing last?
Hair grows in three cycles—essentially, short, medium, and long. When you come in for your first wax, it is possible to have a few hairs from the short cycle left. But don’t worry, we’ll tweeze any hairs the wax doesn’t pick up. Expect a small bit of growth within 1-2 weeks and then be ready for your follow-up appointment 3-4 weeks out.
