What will happen during my appointment?
If this is your first waxing service, or first experience having a particular area of your body waxed, please let your esthetician know so she can guide you through the process. Once in the treatment room, you will need to expose only the area of your body that is going to be waxed. Feel free to ask your esthetician how much, if any, of your clothing should be removed. For a bikini wax, you will be provided with disposable underwear to wear during the service; your esthetician will also discuss where you would like your bikini line to fall. For an underarm wax, please wash off deodorant/antiperspirants prior to your service; it stops the wax from adhering properly.

Before the waxing begins, your esthetician will apply a pre-treatment to cleanse and sanitize the skin. Be sure to inform your esthetician if you have any skin condition or are taking prescription medications such as Retin-A®, Accutane®, antibiotics or any other medication which may cause excessive skin irritation.

What kind of wax will be used on my skin?
STUDIO 51 uses one type of wax: Satin Smooth. Liquid and or hard wax, heated until it reaches the consistency of warm honey, is applied to areas such as (i.e., legs, back, forearms, bikini line, upper lip, eyebrows, etc.). After waxing, area is cleaned with oil-wax-removal, followed by a calming moisturizer.

How should I prepare for a hair removal treatment?
To assure ease in removal, the unwanted hair should be at least 1/4" long. For body waxing, plan to exfoliate & moisturize, the area to be waxed on the day before your treatment, to slough off dead skin cells and help prevent ingrown hairs. Women should avoid waxing during the three days prior to and the first three days of their periods; the skin is most sensitive during this time. Please moisturize regularly. Hair will be removed from the root if skin is moisturized. When skin is dry, during waxing hair might brake instead of coming out entirely from the root.

Does waxing hurt?
Because some of the unwanted hair is removed from the root, it may hurt a bit. If you are especially sensitive to pain, you may want to take an Over-the-Counter Pain Reliever, such as: Tylenol, Advil, Motrin, or Aleve (if you are not allergic) 20 minutes before your appointment.

Why should I choose waxing over other non-permanent hair-removal methods?
Unlike shaving, waxing removes the entire hair, which, with consistent waxing, may then take up to four weeks to grow back. Hair that has been shaved may grow back feeling more coarse and looking darker — but the hair that grows back after waxing often feels softer than it did before.

How should I take care of my skin after the treatment?
For body areas, exfoliate the day after your hair removal treatment (approximately 12 hours after waxing), and twice weekly thereafter, to help prevent ingrown hairs (which are especially apt to occur in the bikini area). Bath-and-shower scrubs with tiny scrubbing beads seem to be particularly effective. And please moisturize, moisturize, moisturize your body and especially area that is waxed regularly, after every shower you take.

"I have gained lots of experience with waxing services and reviewed this little tips for you, so you will be aware of everything is needed when you plan for your regular waxing. If you have more question please feel free to ask. Keep in mind for Brazilian waxing takes 3 weeks for the hair follicle to form, and other 3 weeks for hair to grow at the ideal length for waxing. A regular waxing for Brazilian will be 6 to 7 weeks"
