Tip & Tricks For Before Waxing

Saturday, October 25th, 2014

Here are some tips for before your waxing services!

 

1. Hair should at least be a 1/4 of an inch long before waxing.

2. Exfoliate before your appointment to loosen up the dead skin cells and any “trapped” hairs. If you have time it’s always to do it the day of the appointment, if not the day before is good as well.

3. Consider Taking Tylenol or Advil 45 mins before your appointment. Especially if it’s in a particularly sensitive area or you know that you have a lower pain tolerance. Be careful not to take medications like Motrin before your appointment, because those are blood thinners.

4. Stop Using products like Retin-A, Differin, Tazorac, or Highly concentrated AHA’s a week before your appoint. (If on Accutane or similar products stay clear of waxing for at least a year)

5. Try not to shave between waxes! If there are some stray hairs that bother you then tweeze the area before using a razor.

6. Do not apply any moisturizers, oils, or lotions after showering and immediately heading to your appointment. The oils in the product will prevent the wax from adhering to the hairs.

7. For Female Clients: During the menstral cycle the feeling of pain is more intense so make sure to time your appointments around your cycle.

 

Bonus Tips:

Avoid the sun for 48 hours after waxing, the skin of that area will be extra sensitive and more likely to sun burn.

To prevent ingrown hairs exfoliate regularly between waxing appointments to prevent any dead skin build up to block in the hairs when growing out.

Waxing – Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

Friday, May 10th, 2013

Hello Bella Gia Friends!  Let’s talk about waxing! We thought we would share our most frequently asked questions and answers.

1) Does brow waxing include shaping?

At Bella Gia Salon and Day Spa, our brow waxing always includes shaping. That is the fun and purpose of brow waxing      to shape and frame your face!

 

2) Does Brazilian waxing hurt?

Every client has their own “pain threshold” so this question can be more difficult to answer, however, generally speaking it is more uncomfortable than it is painful. For the truly sensitive client, we recommend taking 1-2 ibuprofen prior to the appointment. Waxing can also be more painful during the menstrual cycle, so it is best to plan around that when possible.

 

3)  How long does the hair need to be before I can wax?

We recommend that the hair be at least 1/4 of an inch long.  Ideally it will be at least 2 weeks since you last shaved; depending on how quickly your hair grows.

 

4) What areas are waxed during a Brazilian Wax?

Our Brazilian wax is front and back, you will leave completely clean.

 

5) Will I be completely naked, do I have to get into any weird positions?

You are welcome to bring a pair of disposable underwear, but your waxer will work best if you are naked. They will cover you with a small towel to ensure modesty. They may move your legs around and/or have you on your hands and knees for those hard to reach areas.  Most estheticians are extremely professional; they do this procedure many times a day and will do everything possible to make you feel comfortable! You will soon develop a relationship with your waxer, they are often your best ally :)!
