Waxing is not recommended for users of Accutane.
For facial waxing, please do not use topical treatments/medications [Retinol, Retin-A, Glycolic peels, acid peels, chemicals etc.] for 1 week before waxing.
Waxing will not be performed on sunburned skin or open lesions.
Clean hygiene is requested every visit.
Hair should be grown out at least 2-3 weeks since shaving/other methods [no need to trim].
Exfoliate the area to be waxed 1-2 days before your appointment.
Avoid tanning [all kinds] for 2 days before waxing.
Avoid extreme heat before a session.
Wear loose clothing.
Limit caffeine if possible as it can cause more sensitivity.
Avoid extreme heat, very hot baths/showers, tanning, pools, exercise/friction for 24 hours.
Breathable, cotton underwear and loose clothing is recommended.
Wait a few hours before applying deodorant/lotions etc.
Gently exfoliate the skin while showering starting 1 day after your appointment, repeating 3-4 times weekly to remove dead skin cells/oils to help prevent and remove ingrown hairs.
[Soft silicone exfoliators are highly recommended - an exfoliating mitt, body towel, glove or brush work as well].
Moisturize skin daily and stay hydrated.
Please do not shave, trim, epilate or use hair removal creams between waxing appointments.
The feeling of body waxing can be described as a "short sharp sting". Breathing techniques and counter pressure are applied to assist in a more comfortable wax session. Taking Ibuprofen 30 minutes prior to your appointment can also help.
I know exactly how it feels but please know that this is what I love to do! I pride myself in fostering a welcoming, relaxed and respectful environment.
It is recommended to start with every 4 weeks and tailor your own schedule from there [as hair growth differs person-to-person]. You can return at 3 weeks but stay within the 6 week mark.
What type of wax do you use? I use a selection of quality, natural waxes.

Can I get waxed on my period? Yes, please arrive clean with a fresh tampon.
Can I get waxed if I'm pregnant? Yes, I have waxed many expectant Moms. Adjustable table and pillows for your comfort.
Can my teen get waxed? Young persons under 18 years of age may be waxed with parental accompaniment and consent.
What if I'm too hairy? No such thing - thank you for trusting me with your hair removal needs.
What if I'm too big? Again, no such thing - every body is welcome here.
My hair is too coarse, can you really wax it? [see above]
What if I get an erection? It is a temporary response, will subside quickly with each pull of wax and the hair will be removed in the same clinical, professional manner as is afforded each client.
[Inappropriateness is not welcomed or tolerated.]
