AVOID personal contact after intimate waxing
Please ensure you are refreshed pre appointment.
Length of hair
The hair should be no shorter than a grain of rice (5mm). If you're having intimate waxing, the longer the hair, the more uncomfortable it will be, so you can trim the hair before your appointment or we will do it for you.
Aunt flow is in town, can I still get waxed?
If you are planning a Brazillian or Hollywood Waxing, all we ask is that you wear a fresh tampon. While it is fine to wax during your cycle, your skin will be more sensitive and the treament will be more painful at that time. Please also inform us before the treatment begins if you are on your period.
During the treatement, every step of the process will be explained to you and we may need your help. All you have to do is follow our instructions. Helping with skin stretching, getting into different positions and so on. Because of this, no mobile phones or magazines will be allowed during your treatment. This is about teamwork!
Waxing when pregnant
Absolutely! Sometimes, your skin may feel a bit more tender during pregnancy, but there is no harm to you or your baby. Make sure to discuss this with us first though. The more we know about you, the better service we can provide when we will wax you.
Are there any reasons that may prevent me from being waxed?
Certain medications and conditions, such as use of steroids or steroid creams, acne medication, including Retin-A, Renova, Differin and Isotretinoin. Also diabetes, varicose veins, poor circulation, contagious skin conditions, sore or open wounds and recent scar tissue may limit or prevent waxing treatments. Please ensure that you provide us with accurate information of any medications or conditions during your consultation. If you have any queries then please do not hesitate to contact us
When should I start exfoliating?
Start an exfoliation routine two days after you get waxed to help prevent ingrown hairs. If you have questions about what kind of routine would be best for you please ask us.
How long will the results last?
Everyone is different. In most cases, you will see minimal regrowth during the first 3 weeks, with a noticeable increase after that. Continued waxing encourages slower, sparser regrowth. After your 4th visit, you should be able to go longer between appointments. So if you are wanting a leg wax and people tend to want them before holidays, it's best to get into a routine before hand so you have the long lasting results you desire.
Please note that we are unable to wax anyone under the age of 16 without parental consent and presence of the parent throughout the treatment. We are unable to carry out intimate waxing treatments on anyone under the age of 16.
