Waxing F.A.Q

How long will my wax last?

Usually your wax will last between 3–4 weeks but everyone’s rate of regrowth is different so results will vary between guests. But remember, with the right products, you can help your body stay smoother, for longer. 

Does body waxing hurt?

It depends on your tolerance for discomfort. Try to keep in mind that you are removing the hair from the root, but trust me I will make sure you are as comfortable as possible. Let’s be honest first time you will feel some discomfort but each time will get easier. We use hard wax (strip less) on all sensitive areas which means LESS PAIN! Hard wax only adheres to hair and not skin. We also sell RELAX AND WAX NO SCREAM CREAM which is a  topical ansthetic cream that can ease discomfort approximatlely 80%

Will I be in the hands of an expert?

Absolutely! I am a licensed esthetician and have been waxing for 5years I have worked for a very popular waxing franchise for 2 years. I specialize in speed waxing and have extensive training I’m fast and efficient and will make you feel comfortable in every step of the way.

How long does my hair have to be to get waxed?

Let the hair grow about 1/4 of an inch or longer than a sprinkle. Think we need it long enough so the wax can grab the hair.

Do I need to prepare for my wax?

No just bring yourself on time and we will take care of the rest

Can I wax on that time of the month?

Most definitely we can absolutely wax you if it's that time of the month. But ... just be aware that the area is more sensitive and you may experience more discomfort than usual.

What’s the difference between a SPHYNX-KINI a SPHYNX-FRONT and a SPHYNX-BARE ?

SPHYNX-KINI Bikini line is a basic tidy; we wax the sides (called your panty line) and across the top. If you’re wearing a bikini, this will prevent any hairs from "peeking out"

SPHYNX-FRONT Bikini Full is the next step and allows you to take off as much or as little hair as you like off the front. If you want to leave a small "landing strip", triangle or nothing at all, it’s up to you!

SPHYNX-BARE  Brazilian goes from the front, all the way to the back with an added butt strip. This is perfect for a completely nude look or you can leave a neat triangle on the front. Choose your style!

I’m pregnant can I still wax?

If you are pregnant, congratulations! And yes you can still wax. However, you may experience more skin sensitivity due to the hormonal changes your body is going through. I will make you as comfortable as possible during the service. We recommend checking with your doctor during the last two months of pregnancy.

Can I still wax after getting a facial?

You can still wax if you received a basic facial that includes a cleanse, steam, exfoliation and mask. If you received a specialty facial that includes, but is not limited to, an alpha (AHA) or beta (BHA) hydroxy peel, microdermabrasion or any other deep exfoliation treatment, then you need to wait at least 7 days to receive a wax service. You should check with your doctor to ensure its ok for you to wax after having any medical-grade facial treatment

Can I still wax after getting a tan what about a spray tan?

We recommend waiting at least 24–48 hours between waxing and tanning because your skin may be more sensitive. Because waxing exfoliates the skin by removing the top layer of dead surface skin cells, you're more likely to experience sunburn. If you are going to go in the sun within 48 hours of waxing, we recommend wearing a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or more

If you just got a spray tan i don’t recommend getting waxed because this exfoliates the top layer of skin and can mess up your just spay tan look.

Can I wax after a sunburn?

We will not perform services on sunburned skin or skin that is irritated or unhealthy. When your skin has healed, you can call to book a reservation for services.

Can I wax when I’m on medication?

It's always best to refer to your doctor if you have any questions. For prescribed creams such as Retin-A or Differin, we advise that you stop use 7 days prior to your wax reservation and do not resume use until 7 days after your wax service. We will not wax you if you are on Accutane. It's very dangerous to wax while on Accutane and a doctor's note will be needed to receive services. Remember, it's important that you inform or update us on what medications you may be taking so we can ultimately provide you with a safe waxing experience.
