  • Should I discontinue the use of certain topical creams or products before my appointment?
    If you are currently using topical creams with vitamin A derivatives, such as Retin A, we recommend avoiding them for at least two weeks before your appointment. These products can increase skin sensitivity and make the waxing process more uncomfortable or potentially cause skin irritation. Additionally, it is best to refrain from using products containing Salicylic or Glycolic acid, Benzoyl Peroxide, Differin, Solidyn, or similar ingredients for two weeks prior to your service. These substances can also increase skin sensitivity and may interfere with the waxing process or lead to skin irritation. If you are unsure about the ingredients in your skincare products or if you have any concerns, please feel free to reach out to us before scheduling your appointment. We will be happy to assist you and provide guidance on the best course of action to ensure a safe and effective waxing experience. Your comfort and satisfaction are our top priorities.
  • Can I get waxed if I am pregnant?
    Yes! You are absolutely welcome to come in and get waxed during pregnancy. It's important to note that due to increased blood flow in the area, you may experience heightened sensitivity during the waxing process. However, many pregnant individuals find it completely worth it, especially as it becomes more challenging to see and reach certain areas for hair removal. Janet will ensure your comfort and safety throughout the treatment, adapting to your needs during this special time. Feel free to schedule an appointment and enjoy the benefits of professional waxing even during pregnancy.
  • How long should I wait after shaving before my waxing appointment?
    To achieve the best results, we recommend allowing a minimum of 2 full weeks from your last shave before your waxing appointment. We understand it may sound less than ideal, but this waiting period is essential for optimal waxing outcomes. Waiting for 2 weeks allows the hair to grow to an adequate length, ensuring that the wax can effectively grip and remove the hair from the root. If the hair is too short, the wax may not be able to grasp it properly, resulting in less efficient hair removal. By adhering to this recommended timeframe, you can expect better results, smoother skin, and longer-lasting hair-free periods.
  • How to prepare for bikini/brazilian?
    Exfoliating a couple of days before your appointment is highly recommended to ensure optimal waxing results. By exfoliating, you remove the layer of dry, dead skin cells that may be covering the hair follicles. This allows the trapped hair to come up to the surface, making it easier to remove during the waxing process. Exfoliation promotes smoother and more effective hair removal, ensuring a longer-lasting and more satisfying waxing experience. Remember to gently exfoliate your skin a few days before your appointment for the best results.
  • Can I get waxed if I am currently taking or have taken Accutane within the last year?
    For your safety and optimal results, we recommend avoiding waxing if you are currently taking or have taken Accutane within the last year. Accutane can significantly increase skin sensitivity and affect the integrity of the skin, potentially causing lifting or damage during the waxing process. It is important to prioritize the health and well-being of your skin. Instead of waxing, we suggest exploring alternative hair removal methods that are suitable for individuals on or recently off Accutane. Please consult with your dermatologist or healthcare provider to discuss the best hair removal options for you while on or after Accutane. We want to ensure your safety and provide you with the most appropriate and effective hair removal solution.
  • Should I inform you of any changes in my medication, such as those prescribed by my dermatologist?
    Yes, please inform us of any changes in your medication, including those prescribed by your dermatologist. Medications can have an impact on your skin's sensitivity and may affect the waxing process. By keeping us informed, we can ensure that your waxing experience is tailored to your specific needs and provide the best possible care. Your safety and comfort are our top priorities, so please let us know of any changes in your medication or any other relevant information before your appointment.
  • How often should I wax for best results?
    For optimal results, we recommend maintaining a waxing schedule of every 4 to 6 weeks. Consistency is key to achieving thinner and finer hair growth over time. Regular waxing helps to weaken and damage the hair follicle, leading to a reduction in hair density and slower regrowth. It is important to avoid shaving in between waxing appointments, as this can reverse the progress made by waxing. Shaving promotes thicker hair regrowth and can disrupt the hair growth cycle. Stick to your waxing routine and enjoy longer-lasting smoothness and more effective hair reduction.
  • Can I get waxed if I have recently been in the sun or have tanned?
    For optimal waxing results and to ensure the health of your skin, we advise against getting waxed if you have been in the sun or have recently tanned (whether through sun exposure, spray tanning, or tanning beds) within the last 24 hours. Sun exposure and tanning can increase skin sensitivity and make the waxing process more uncomfortable or potentially cause skin damage or irritation. However, we encourage you to indulge in tanning 48 hours after your waxing service. This allows your skin to recover and reduces the risk of any adverse effects from the combination of waxing and tanning. Prioritizing the well-being of your skin is important to us. If you have any further questions or concerns about sun exposure, tanning, or the recommended time frames, please don't hesitate to contact us. We are here to provide guidance and ensure a positive waxing experience for you.
  • What activities should I avoid after my waxing session?
    After your waxing session, it is important to take some precautions to ensure the best possible results and minimize potential skin irritation. We kindly request that you refrain from the following activities for 24 to 48 hours following your wax: Avoid standing water: This includes baths, pools, hot tubs, or any other bodies of water. Immersion in water can expose freshly waxed skin to bacteria, which may lead to infection or irritation. Limit exercising: Strenuous physical activities, such as intense workouts or activities that cause excessive sweating, should be avoided. Sweating can cause additional sensitivity and potential discomfort to freshly waxed skin. Steer clear of tanning: It is advisable to avoid direct sun exposure or tanning beds for at least 24 to 48 hours after your waxing session. Your skin may be more sensitive and susceptible to sunburn or irritation during this time. Planning your schedule accordingly will help ensure that your skin remains healthy, irritation-free, and allows for optimal results from your waxing service. If you have any further questions or concerns about post-waxing care or specific activities to avoid, please don't hesitate to reach out to us. We are here to provide guidance and support for a successful waxing experience.
  • Can I get waxed during my menstrual cycle?
    Absolutely! We want to assure you that it is perfectly fine to get waxed during your monthly cycle. While it may feel slightly more uncomfortable due to heightened sensitivity, there are ways to make the experience more tolerable. Taking an over-the-counter pain reliever like Ibuprofen prior to your appointment can help alleviate any discomfort. Jannet is well-trained in providing gentle and efficient waxing services, ensuring your comfort throughout the process. So don't hesitate to book your waxing appointment, even during your menstrual cycle. We're here to make your experience as smooth and comfortable as possible.
