Waxing - FAQ

WHY WAX?
You have two choices: You can be a slave to the razor, shave several times a week and deal with cranky stubble in-between OR you can get smooth, silky skin by waxing. Waxing removes hair from the root. Hair grows in softer and looks lighter in colour because it is finer. With waxing you can wax once a month and be done! Waxing also exfoliates skin so it's left feeling silky soft.

HOW LONG DOES THE HAIR NEED TO BE?
For best results, the hair length should be about 1/4 inch long. When in doubt, it is better the hair be longer than shorter. If you can grab the hair between your thumb and index finger, then it’s the right time to come in for a waxing appointment. Or three to four weeks since you last shaved the area or your last waxing appointment.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET WAXED?
On average we find that most waxing clients need to come in every three to five weeks. Once you start on a waxing program you will notice that you have less hair growth between your waxing appointments.

I JUST SHAVED, HOW LONG SHOULD I WAIT BEFORE GETTING WAXED?
The recommended time after shaving is 3 weeks.

DOES IT HURT?
Yes…it does hurt. But, the certified and knowledgeable esthetician’s at Body Elements Spa help reduce the pain factor of waxing by being very skilled and capable waxing professionals.
