Say goodbye to unwanted facial hair! Waxing is a fabulous alternative to tweezing everyday and causes less irritation than shaving. Plus it will keep your face smooth for weeks!
We use both hard and strip wax specially designed for sensitive skin. The wax is applied and then removed with one solid motion resulting in only brief discomfort. You may find that with continued waxing services your hair regrowth becomes finer and sparser resulting in less discomfort and less hair to deal with! Most clients get waxed every 3-6 weeks depending on their desired results.
To ensure a successful waxing experience, please read and follow these instructions.
WARNING: Waxing is never done on clients taking Accutane and is not recommended for clients using Retin A, Renova, Differin or other types of skin thinning acne medications.
