Eyelash & Eyebrow Tinting

We also offer both lash and brow tinting. Your esthetician will determine which colour is most suitable for you during your appointment. Colours should last approximately 2-4 weeks.

How do I prepare for waxing?
To ensure optimal waxing results, the length of the hair to be waxed should be ¼ – ½ inches. For most body parts, you should stop shaving for at least two weeks for most areas, with the underarms being the exception with a week and a half of growth being acceptable in most cases. If you are waxing a large body area, such as the legs, be sure to exfoliate lightly 24 hours prior to your appointment time. This allows the hairs hidden underneath the skin to pop up for the best wax. NO HARSH EXFOLIATION IMMEDIATELY PRIOR TO WAXING.

Does waxing hurt?
Most people find that waxing offers a strong immediate stinging effect which quickly subsides. Some people find taking ibuprofen 30 minutes prior to treatment helps with the pain during the service. It may also help to reduce any post wax inflammation of the skin. In extreme circumstances, you may be advised to take a histamine blocker prior to your appointment. Consult with your esthetician if your post wax reaction lasts longer than 24 hours. You may be a candidate for this precaution.

What post procedure (waxing) maintenance is recommended?
Exfoliation sloughs off dead dry skin cells and makes way for new living cells. It’s a good habit, even without waxing, to exfoliate your skin. In terms of waxing, it allows the new hairs to grow through the skin and not get caught beneath the dead layers. By exfoliating you are doing your part to prevent ingrown hairs to develop. Sometimes ingrown hairs are not appeased by simple exfoliation; rather they need a topical product to help clean out the pores. Most cleansers with 2% salicylic acid are a great partner to use with your scrub device. We have several excellent products available to help you with exfoliation. Consult with your esthetician for more detailed suggestions.
