Q. If I wax, will my hair grow back?
A. Yes, waxing only eliminates the hair temporarily, however over time you will notice that the hair does become thinner and finer.
Q. Is there anything I should know or avoid before waxing?
A. There are a few things, if you have a cold or have had one a lip wax is not recommended as the skin in this area is thin to begin with and can easily torn or damage after a cold. Secondly if you have applied tanning products, the wax can pull the skin and cause the tanning solution to fade more quickly. Please don't use a tanning booth or sunbathe 24 hours before waxing treatment and lastly Accutane, Coumadin or blood thinners, alpha- hydroxyl acids, Retin A, glycolic acids, hydroquione, tropical cortisone, and some antidepressants can aggravate waxing. Also it is not recommended that you wax after micro or manual dermabrasion, laser resurfacing, a peel or surgical removal of any growth in the area to be waxed.
Q. Is there anything I should do or avoid after I wax?
A. Yes please do not engage in a workout immediately following waxing perspiration can cause rashes, irritation. Redness and breakouts. Avoid exposure to the sun and tanning booths for 24 booths following a wax. Do not take a hot shower or use hot tub for at least four hours following waxing.
Q, Every time I wax it seems like I get in-growing hairs. Is there anything that I can do about this?
A. Yes, we recommend that 3 days after you receive a wax you exfoliate the area on a daily basis. This helps to remove dry skin that can block pores and lead in-grown hairs.
Q.Whats the difference between waxing and threading?
A. Threading uses a thread to 'pluck' out the hairs but unlike using a tweezer it can do several at a time and produces a sharper definition. It has the advantage over waxing in that there is minimal impact on teh skin and it can grip finer and shorter hair often meaning theat the regrowth takes longer.
