1. Let the hairs grow for about two weeks before your appointment. 2. If the hairs are very long, trim them to 1/4 inch (about two weeks of growth after shaving). This ensures a faster, much less uncomfortable procedure and cleaner, smoother results. 3. If you have time prior to your appointment, please shower. If you don't, please clean the area with baby wipes or feminine wipes. Hygiene is very important in this kind of work. 4. We recommend that you wear a thong. We also provide disposable underwear.
The Hollywood Wax is basically a modified Brazilian. The Hollywood leaves a landing strip that goes all the way from the top of the vaginal area to the inner thighs. All hair isn't removed from the lip area, but the Hollywood does include hair removal from the buttocks.
All the hair is removed from the pubic area. In other words, the area is totally bald. This waxing process also includes the buttocks. The result is a completely clean and bare area. Some spas call this procedure Sphynx wax (The name comes from the hairless cat).
After cleaning the area to be waxed and dusting it with powder, wax is applied a little at a time. We apply our organic liquid wax to the entire area being treated. Muslin strips are then applied over the area and quickly removed. After the hair removal, stray hairs may also be tweezed. I apply a special calming lotion to the area, which reduces redness, soothes and softens, and acts as a natural antiseptic. To remove the hair from the bottom part, the client has to lift her legs. The procedure is done quickly to ensure the least amount of discomfort.
On a scale of 1 to 10 - 1 being moderate pain and 10 the worst pain ever - I would say the first time hurts between 5 and 8, depending on the client. I think the anticipation is the worst. I always try to talk with my clients, keeping their minds busy with fun conversation. That way, they don't concentrate on the pain.
No, waxing prevents ingrown hairs. Some women have serious problems with ingrown hairs, though, so it doesn't matter what kind of depilation you use on them. One way to prevent ingrown hairs is to use a washcloth to wash briskly in the shower. Or towel off briskly after bathing.
Hair needs to be 1/4-inch long (about two weeks of growth after shaving). This length is perfect because the wax can easily grab the hairs and pull them out. Trim a bit if you have long hair before coming in for the first time. Long hairs make the esthetician's job a little harder, and waxing more painful.
Every time you get waxed, your hairs become weaker, making the process easier and faster over time. It is fast, and the skin looks and feels softer than after any other method of depilation. Waxing also lasts longer than most other hair removal techniques.
Yes. We have a great product called "Relax and wax no scream cream". This cream has a 20% benzocaine base and for better results has to be applied between 15 to 30 minutes BEFORE waxing. For most people It will drastically reduce the pain.
