Q. Can Teens enjoy waxing?
A. Unwanted hair is not just a condition that adults are concerned about. Many teens suffer from the embarrassment of unwanted facial, arm or body hair, as well. Waxing is a solution that will help your teen eliminate the worry, anxiety and embarrassment associated with unwanted hair.
Q. What is the difference between waxing and shaving?
A. Shaving is required frequently. Waxing removes the hair by the root, extending the re-growth period. Waxing can cause the hair to grow back thinner, softer finer and lighter over time. Typically waxing can be repeated in three to four weeks. This is individual to the client.
Q. What is the difference between waxing and depilatories?
A. With depilatories, the hair is not removed to the same depth as it is with waxing. This type of treatment needs to be repeated more often, as the hair will grow back soon. When used on sensitive skin, the chemicals in depilatories can be very harsh and irritating.
Q. Should I shave between waxing sessions?
A. No. I do not recommend shaving between waxing sessions.
Q. How long does my hair need to be?
A. Hair growth for waxing must be 1/4 to 1/2 an inch in length. If trimming is required, simply do that before your appointment.
Q. What can I do to prevent ingrown hair.
A. Exfoliating with loofah or body. Scrub in circular motion going upward away from the hair growth. Exfoliating will help prevent ingrown hairs and leaves the skin smooth. Exfoliate at least 2-3 times a week.
Q. Can I tan before waxing?
A. Tanning either indoors or outdoors is not recommended within 24 hours of waxing.
Q. What about home care maintenance?
A. I recommend that you wash the waxed area. Be sure to use cool water and apply moisturizer on a daily basis. Exfoliating three times a week helps to prevent ingrown hairs.
