WAXING

SKIN 101 Waxing

WAXING

Waxing is done to remove any and all of that unwanted body hair by spreading a thin coat of wax over your skin. Then, a paper strip or a cloth is pressed on top of it and ripped off with a quick motion against the direction of your hair growth. Men and women, both need occasional waxing which is an affordable long-lasting method of temporary hair removal.

IMPORTANT

  • Eyebrow, chin, lip, and sideburn waxing can be performed in 10-15 min appointment times or added to the allotted hour of an AT or Facial.

  • Facial waxes can only be performed if the patient has not been using Retinols within one week.

  • Patients cannot receive a chemical peel on the same day of waxing or laser.

  • A skin care sheet and consent form can be drafted to educate our patients on the procedures so there is a lower risk of burning, scarring, pigmentation, etc.

FOLLOWING WAXING PROCEDURES YOU SHOULD:

  • Apply a sunblock with at least an SPF of 15

  • Avoid use of a loofah or other abrasive treatment to the waxed area

  • Avoid saunas, steam rooms, hot tubs, or other heat sources

  • Avoid application of Retin-A, Renova, or AHA’s for at least 48 hours.

TINTING - BROW/LASH

Tinting intensifies your natural lashes and brows by darkening them and adding definition to the eyes and brows. A lash tint compliments lash extensions as well as lash lifting. A brow tint is a great service to pair with any brow waxing service to achieve defined, well-groomed brows. Tinting is available in a variety of different shades to match natural hair colors.
