Usually 4-6 weeks depending on how quickly your hair grows. In general, hair grows more slowly in winter months.
Make sure that you do not sunbathe, exfoliate (with scrubs or acids), or go to the gym for at least 24 hours after waxing. Also, do not use anything on your waxed skin that contains artificial colors or fragrances as they may irritate your skin. If any residue remains on your skin, it can be gently washed off with soap and water. Do not scrub. Any gentle body oil would also work.
Hair should be at least an eighth of an inch long in order to be long enough to grab with the wax or sugar. Ideal is between a quarter to a half inch in length.

Check first with your doctor, but some find that taking an over-the-counter pain reliever an hour before getting waxed helps to reduce some of the pain felt during the service. Make sure that you do not exfoliate, expose the area to the sun, apply any moisturizer, or exercise vigorously before your wax appointment as this may contribute to irritation and may damage your skin.
Yes. The bottom line is that your hair is being pulled out by the root. Different body parts hurt more than others. We try to minimize the pain by utilizing superior techniques and using high quality product.
Sugaring is a hair-removal technique that relies on a paste traditionally made from lemon, sugar, and water, though some spas add honey and essential oils as well. But what makes sugaring stand out even more is the fact that it's significantly gentler on skin. Regular wax needs to be very hot to stick to hair, then dries into a solid when it cools. You have the risk of a thermal burn—a pretty common side effect. While thermal burns are usually just a temporary problem (red and hot, like a sunburn).
Some clients have told us that they get less in-grown hairs using sugar compared to wax and most tell us that their skin is much less red, making it ideal to use on the face. Please always feel free to come in for a patch test if you would like to see how your skin would react. We highly recommend it.
The BASIC BIKINI wax removes whatever would show if you were wearing a traditional bathing suit. The BRAZILIAN BIKINI removes as little or as much off of your bikini area as you choose - including the full monty!

We do not recommend doing so. Most of our facials include exfoliation and acids that may make the skin too sensitive to have a wax service the same day. Please space them at least 24 hours apart. Try eyebrow tweezing for a safer alternative.
Most clients show some reaction after a wax service. It can range from slightly pink skin to some swelling to little red spots where the hair was pulled out. Typically, all these signs go away overnight. If you are unsure of how you will react to a waxing treatment, then we recommend you come in for a patch test 24-48 hours before your desired appointment. A patch test can help determine how you will react to waxing. While it is not unusual for women to react differently, especially at different times of the month, most people have a typical waxing response.
Yes, although many clients find that waxing is more painful during this time and the skin tends to be more reactive. Please wear a tampon if you’ve booked a Brazilian wax.
To prevent burning or discoloration of your skin you must allow at least 24 hours after a wax service before going into the sun. The topmost layer of dead skin that protects skin from burning rays of the sun is removed during waxing.
We recommend an absolute minimum of once a season. When addressing specific issues such as acne, fine lines and wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation for example, we suggest you consult with one of our expert skin care technicians as to how best to approach your concern. Typically, clients see the best results by having a professional facial once every 6-8 weeks.
Our Basic facial includes a full skin analysis followed by a customized treatment to address the unique needs of your skin which includes a thorough cleansing, two levels of exfoliation, massage, extractions, mask, and an application of an appropriate moisturizer and sunscreen. As all facials are fully customized to individual needs, no two are alike. This is a great starter facial for when you're unsure of what would best suit your skin.
Gratuities are graciously accepted and appreciated. While leaving a gratuity is optional, it is usually seen as a “thank you” for a service well performed. It is customary to leave 20-25% of the service total.
