What type of wax do you use?
We use Cirepil Blue hard wax (strip less wax) for all of our waxing services.
How often should I receive waxing services?
It is recommended that you come in every 4-6 weeks. This allows your skin to acclimate to being waxed, slowing your hair growth, and helps to promote better results between treatments.
How should I prepare my hair and skin for waxing?
– Discontinue use of any Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) or glycolic products 48-72 hours prior to waxing.
– Discontinue use of Retin-A, Renova or Accutane (an oral form of Retin-A) one week prior to waxing.
– Avoid heat. No tanning beds, hot tubs and saunas 48 hours prior to your appointment.
– Exfoliate the area gently 24 hours before your appointment will remove the dead skin cells and allow for a cleaner wax.
How should I take care of my skin after waxing?
Everyone reacts differently to waxing. Please read the following post-care and be prepared to sign our waxing consent form.
– Avoid heat. No tanning, sun bathing, hot tubs or saunas for 24 hours after your treatment. Since a layer of dead skin cells have been removed, sun and or heat exposure can burn the skin.
– No hot water on your face for 2 hours following your treatment.
– Your Esthetician will apply Auspect’s RedNoMore serum to the waxed areas to help calm and help the waxed skin. If you are feeling sensitive after returning home, you may apply a cold compress to soothe the skin.
– You may return to using exfoliating products and Retin-A 72 hours after waxing.
Can I receive waxing services if I have sensitive skin?
Most often, clients do not have “sensitive” skin but have created a “sensitized environment” by dehydrating, over exfoliating, and disrupting the pH of the skin. In this case, you may be more prone to redness or flaking after waxing. Again, we will apply the Auspect RedNoMore serum to help calm and heal your skin. We may also apply our No Problem serum if you are prone to breakouts after waxing; this serum helps to treat and prevent breakouts. If you experience inflammation or prolonged redness you may apply a cool compress to the area.
Who should NOT receive waxing services?
– People who have allergies to the wax’s ingredients.
– Anyone with active cold sores.
– People taking any medications that thin the skin.
Eyebrow – $15
Eyelash – $25
How does tinting work?
Lash and brow tinting is done by mixing tint and developer solution together and apply to the lash or brow hairs for 5-10 minutes.
How do I know what color to choose for my tint?
Our trained Estheticians will help you choose a shade that works for you. They can even custom blend shades to find your perfect match!
How long does a lash or brow tint last?
Lash tinting lasts between four to six weeks; according to your hair’s growth cycle. Brow tinting will fade between two to four weeks.
How do I take care of my lashes and brows after a tint?
– Avoid wearing makeup for 12 hours
– Avoid getting your lashes and brows wet for 24 hours. This includes washing your hair, swimming, sweating or saunas
– Use oil-free facial products and makeup remover around the eye area to help prolong tint
