    Hair Removal
& Waxing

      
                

     

          

At The SkinSpa we  perform 'as painless as possible' waxing to remove unwanted hair.  A numbing antiseptic used prior to hair removal will help to inhibit the pain receptors in the skin.

In an effort to protect the integrity of your skin, please discontinue the use of retin-A, accutane, AHA's, glycolic (or similar exfoliant) at least 1 week prior to waxing. Skin that is sunburned or has undergone chemotherapy, laser peel or facial surgery please wait 6 weeks. 

Waxing performed on previously exfoliated or damaged skin may result in burning, hyperpigmentation and/or scaring, especially with persons of darker skin color.

       


PAINLESS Waxing with NO SCREAM CREAM!



NO-SCREAM CREAM is a topical anesthetic that makes waxing relatively pain-free. Simply apply
NO-SCREAM CREAM 30-45 minutes before waxing and ease discomfort by 80 percent!

 Our Estheticians use Satin Smooth hard wax (for sensitive skin) and strip waxes imported from Italy which are developed with a unique blend of all natural essential oils, soothing ingredients and beeswax. 
All our waxes have built in buffers to protect your skin from lifting and to minimize hair breakage, giving you silky smooth skin every time. Our waxing rituals will allow for the most comfort as well as the best effectiveness. Using several different types of wax allows us to customize the area of hair removal. 
* Hair should be between 1/4 and 1/2 inch for best results.

Brazilian Waxing for Men - $85 - $125
A standard Male Brazilian includes the frontal pubic area (the mound), about 2 inches where the upper thigh meets the pubic area; the shaft, scrotum and anal area. It is optional to leave a landing strip (patch of hair) above the shaft. *Client's parts are always covered, areas to be waxed are exposed one at time in a very professional manner.

 


 

PRE-CARE RECOMMENDATIONS

  • If you have shaved recently, please allow at least 3 weeks of hair growth before your first appointment.
  • Do not tan on the week of your waxing appointment.
  • Ibuprofen or Advil is good for its anti-inflammatory effects.
  • Do not shave but do trim the hair to the desired length of 1/4 - 1/2 inch
  • Do not apply any lotion on the area to be treated. Your hands and skin must be dry and free of any moisturizing products.
  • Exfoliation of the area is a plus for an effective waxing treatment, however, you should not do it the day of your treatment.


POST-CARE RECOMMENDATIONS

 
  • Do not tan for at least 24 hours.
  • Do not apply any product for the next 2 hours.
  • Do not have intercourse for 24 hours if you just had a sensual or bare Brazilian bikini wax. 
  • Do not wear anything tight on any area just waxed.
  • Apply cold compresses to the area if necessary, (ice cubes in a lunch bag works well).
  • Do not "pick" or try to get an ingrown hair.  If necessary, contact us and we will take care of any in-grown hairs at no cost to you.
  • Exfoliate the waxed area on week 2 & 3 after your treatment. We recommend Guinot Gommage Facile body scrub.
  • Apply Guinot Epil Confort after every shower for the following two weeks of the appointment.
  • Do not take a hot bath or shower.  Warm to cool temperature water is recommended for the next 24 hours or until redness subsides. 
  • Don't ever use soap on genital area. Guinot Moose De Coton is recommended or plain water should be used.
  • It is strongly recommended that you do not go past 6 weeks before your next waxing appointment. 

    Frequently Asked Questions 

    What is the difference between hard wax and the ordinary "strip" wax?
    We are proud to offer "state of the art" hard wax, which is easier on the skin than ordinary "strip" wax.  The azulene and chamomile based hard wax is soothing to the skin.  It attaches only to the hair which makes the process less painful.   The hard wax requires a special technique that requires experienced estheticians.This type of wax is not one of the cheapest to get in the U.S., but its quality of attaching only to the hair and not to the skin makes the process less painful and easier.

    How is the cleanliness and privacy of the facility ensured?
    Our set-up is very discreet, comfortable and clean. Our technicians wear gloves during the entire service.  Sticks and tools used are disposable and/or sanitized and sterilized.   OUR WAX IS NOT REUSABLE.  After the wax has been used, it is disposed of.  Our professionalism, cleanliness, and the expertise of our technicians make The SkinSpa Institute very unique to offer safe and sanitary Brazilian as well as Basic Bikini Waxing.
     

    How long does the hair need to be before it can be waxed?
    The hair needs to be at least a quarter (1/4) of an inch long for the wax to grip it properly. This is usually about 3 to 4 weeks of growth.  Hair should be no longer than 1/2 of an inch for best results.  It hair is longer it should be trimmed but not shaved before coming in for your appointment.

    How long does the Brazilian Bikini Waxing take?
    The process can take from 15 minutes to 1 hour, depending on how much hair needs to be removed.  This is why the price varies with each individual.  First timers usually will cost a bit more because of the time involved. 
     

    How long does waxing last?
    Waxing may last from 1 to 6 weeks. The more you do it, the longer it will last. If your last hair removal was shaving, the first waxing after that it will not last too long. No shaving in between PLEASE!

    How often should I have waxing done? 
    We recommend anywhere from 3 to 6 weeks.  Five weeks is usually best.

     

    What is Epil Confort and why should I use after waxing?
    *It is an antibacterial and antimicrobial treatment
    *It destroys bacteria, fungus, and yeast
    *Cools, shrinks, reduces swelling, and protects the empty follicle
    *Increases elasticity in the follicle wall
    *Atrophies new hair growth
    *Breaks fats and oils to prevent clogging
    *Protects against in-grown hairs
    *Rids area of old in-grown hairs caused by waxing and shaving


    Is laser hair removal better than waxing?
    Waxing damages the hair follicle by the constant hair removal from its root. Over time the hair follicle may die and hair will not grow.  This may take a few years. Laser, on the other hand, destroys the hair follicle, so it won't produce hair.  Multiple treatments are required and are very expensive.  Hair will sometimes grow back with Laser.  Unfortunately there is no such thing as 'permanent' hair removal.   

    Do I need to do anything to prepare myself for my first waxing appointment?
    You should arrive "freshened up" or if there isn't time, we provide moistened "towelettes" for your convenience.   The client MUST undress from the waist down and change into disposable underwear, right before the treatment starts.  You may take some Ibuprofen or Advil 1 hour before the treatment. It may not work as a pain killer but its anti-inflammatory properties are helpful in the process.
