Frequently Asked Questions about Hair Waxing
Will it hurt?
Everyone’s pain tolerance is different. It can be uncomfortable, especially if it’s your first time. Be sure to exfoliate the skin the day before your waxing appointment to remove any dead skin cells. Exfoliating will make it a bit less painful.
How long should the hair be?
It’s recommended that the hair be 2-3 weeks in growth or at least a 1/4 inch. If the hair is too short the wax can not adhere to it.
How long do the results last?
The more you wax and the more consistent you are the better results you’ll have. Most clients see growth again at 3 weeks. It’s best not to shave between waxing appointments.
How long does it take?
Most services take between 15-20 minutes. It all depends on how much hair needs to be removed.
Will I be in pain after waxing?
No, but you will be sensitive. Your skin may be pink or a touch swollen but you shouldn’t be in pain. Most sensitivity goes away within 12-24 hours.
How often should I get waxed?
At Sleek360 we recommend waxing every 3-4 weeks. Waxing consistently will help the hair come back thinner and softer, ensuring a less painful visit next time. Waxing regularly also helps prevent ingrown hairs.
Do pregnant women get waxed?
Yes, you may be a bit more sensitive during pregnancy but many women get waxed up until the day of delivery.
Can I get a bikini wax while on my Menstrual Cycle?
It’s recommended to wait until your period has passed. However, If you are going on vacation and just can’t wait, then yes, we will wax you as long as you have a fresh tampon inserted and the string tucked inside.
What is a Male Brazilian?
A Male Brazilian is a service provided to men that removes as much or as little hair as you want in the bikini area. We remove the hair on the top and underwear line, the penis, the testicles, and the hair between the cheeks.
What kind of men get a Male Brazilian?
Our clients come from all walks of life, single or married, straight or gay, athletes, dancers, body builders, young or old.
Why would a guy get a Male Brazilian?
The same reason women get Brazilians! It feels cleaner and smoother for a lot longer than shaving. Some people have bikini services done because it’s sexier for your significant other.
Will I get an erection during a waxing service?
It happens to about half of men getting waxed. It’s usually an adrenal response from the waxing service that can’t be controlled. It’s really not a problem. Just keep in mind, this is a professional service. Inappropriate remarks or advances will be cause for the esthetician to stop the service. You will still be charged full price for the service.
Is there an age limit to come to Sleek360 Wax Studio?
If you are under 18 you’ll need to bring a parent or guardian with you to your 1st appointment as we will need their consent. If you are under 16 the parent or guardian must stay in the room with you during a bikini service.
Can I be waxed while on medications?
Some prescription medications such as Retin A, Renova, Accutane, Differin, or Tazorac can increase the rate at which your skin exfoliates. Waxing could potentially remove the skin as well as the hair while on these medications. Let us know if you are you using any of the above medications or any prescription skin care medications prior to waxing.
Does the price change if I don’t have much hair?
Sleek360 Wax Studio offers affordable waxing and charges per service, regardless of the amount of hair you have.
