What will happen during
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"
