BODY WAXING FOR MEN AND WOMEN

  

WAXING PRICES FOR WOMEN:

Waxing is a temporary method of hair removal which removes the hair at the root.   New hairs do not grow back in the waxed area for three to eight weeks.  Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, bikini area, legs, arms, back, abdomen and feet. 

We specialise in all over body waxing for men and women. At our beauty salon in Red Deer, Alberta, all of our waxing treatments are undertaken after consultation at the discretion of the beauty therapist.

At Five Star Salon, we use warm wax and hot wax. Warm wax is when a thin layer of heated wax is applied to the skin in the direction of the hair growth. The hair becomes embedded in the wax as it cools and is then pulled off quickly in the opposite direction of the hair growth, taking the hair with it. Hot wax is a recent invention compared to sugaring, it's a lot more gentle on the area being waxed, excellent for underarms, bikini's, brazilians and hollywoods.

Brazilian Waxing
Brazilian waxing is a type of waxing involving the bikini area. This procedure involves the removal of pubic hair from the perineum and vulva (labia majora and mons pubis ). It can be thought of as an extreme form of bikini waxing . Most forms of Brazilian waxing leave a small line of pubic hair above the vulva , commonly known as the "landing strip".

With a Brazilian wax, you'll never have to worry about "escaping tendrils" again. The benefits to Brazilian waxing? You'll feel all clean and shiny, and you'll be slick during intercourse. The results will last anywhere from ten days to three weeks, with no maintenance, and there's no shave that can get you this smooth. In fact, that's the biggest benefit -- no more shaving!

Hollywood Waxing
Hollywood waxing this is an everything at the front off , leaving you bare down there. For the very brave only.

A Line Extended Bikini Waxing
A tad higher than a normal regular bikini wax , allowing you to wear thongs etc.

FAQ ABOUT WAXING:

How long does my hair need to be before I can get waxed?

Generally, we need your hair to be at least 1/2 of an inche to successfully wax.

Why wax in the first place?

Waxing is one of the best ways to temporarily remove unwanted hair. It is more effective than shaving because it removes hair from the roots, not just from the skin’s surface. Over time, hair in waxed areas regrows lighter and sparser or not at all.  Even fine hair shadows the face, distorting and aging your features. Waxing the brows opens up the eyes, providing a non-surgical facelift. You keep the hair on your head well-maintained, so why not everywhere else?

What areas of the body can be waxed?

The wax can be used on almost any part of the body as needed.  It is wise to test a small area first for sensitivity.  Some frequently waxed areas for women are legs, underarms, bikini line, eyebrows and face. For men: chest, leg, arms, and back.  The exceptions for waxing are the beards  and inside the ears.

Does waxing have to hurt?

Many clients use a product called RELAX AND WAX NO SCREAM CREAM to ease the pain/discomfort up to 80%.  NO SCREAM CREAM is a topical anesthetic lotion that absorbs into the skin and will not interfere with your waxing service.  Apply 30 to 45 minutes prior to your waxing and relax.  

NO SCREAM CREAM is not messy, greasy, nor will it harm your clothing.  Available for $29.95 and lasts 2-5 waxings depending on what part of the body it's used on.  You will never want to be waxed again without it. (Sorry we're currently out of stock for this NO SCREAM CREAM)

How long will the results last?

After a client’s first waxing, the results can last 3 to 6 weeks depending on the individual’s hair re-growth. In most cases, hair growth is minimal during the first week or two and noticeably increases in the third and fourth week. Heat stimulates hair growth, therefore hair grows quicker in the summer than in the winter. With regular waxing the length of time between treatments will increase. Continued waxing results in sparse hair re-growth.

Are there any health precautions to keep in mind?

VERY IMPORTANT: Some physicians do not recommend waxing for persons suffering from diabetes or who have varicose veins or poor circulation as they are more susceptible to infection. 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. Please read the label carefully and consult your dermatologist if you are taking any medication or using any topical cream that contains these medications. Individuals do react differently to these medications and sometimes waxing can be done if proper patch testing is completed.

Also, please advise your esthetician if you are allergic to any foods - because if you can't eat it, you shouldn't put the extracts on your skin. Please be completely honest with your Skin Care Therapist about all allergies and medications you are taking - it is for your protection. 

Will the hair grow back thicker?

Absolutely not. It might seem so because you will be accustomed to a hairless zone, and new hair will be intolerable. Usually, regrowth will be finer, thinner and slower. Eventually, hair growth may stop altogether

What are the possible side effects of waxing and how can they be minimized?

Although we can not predict or guarantee who may react, most clients do not experience reactions beyond redness and minor irritation. Hair may break at the root during waxing, causing some hairs to grow out faster. Please follow these guidelines to minimize irritation and possible break outs.

  • Avoid the sun immediately after waxing and please wear sun screen; recently waxed areas are prone to hyperpigmentation (permanent darkening of the skin) if exposed to the sun.
  • Avoid heavy exercise for at least 10 hours after waxing.
  • Avoid saunas, steam rooms, whirlpools and other heated sources for at least 48 hours.
  • Do not use exfoliating products (AHAs, scrubs, etc) and loofas until at least 24 hours after waxing.
  • Avoid tight clothing after waxing, especially in the waxed areas. Tight clothing may result in irritation and ingrown hairs
  • Regular exfoliation may be helpful especially on leg and arm areas.
  • Routine waxing helps the skin get accustomed to the procedure and may minimize irritation
  • Unfortunately, no shower or oral sex for 10 hours after a Brazilian.

Products are available that can be applied topically to avoid in-grown hairs and condition the skin for better waxing results

How long does waxing take?

Depending on the body part and the density of the hair growth, your waxing appointment will take between fifteen minutes and one hour.

 

What can you expect from a Standard Bikini Wax versus a Brazilian Bikini Wax?

A standard bikini wax is more conservative and generally involves removing hair to just inside the panty or swimsuit line. Hair removal is limited to the front of your body only and does not include the legs or abdomen.

The Brazilian technique has gained in popularity and involves hair removal around the anus, perineum and vagina, leaving only a small strip of hair or no hair at all. This is a very intimate type of waxing and will only be performed after careful consultation. Another option is to gradually remove more hair after each appointment until a Brazilian look is achieved.

How closely you trim, shave or wax your pubic hair is a personal preference. You should do whatever makes you comfortable, whether it's a bare look or a more natural look.
