FAQS/HELPFUL INFORMATION

If you have additional questions concerning facials, hair removal or any other service, please feel free to call or e-mail. I am more than happy to answer any of your questions.

Q:  What is a Brazilian wax? 
A:  A Brazilian wax removes all of the pubic hair (and I mean everything!).  Having said that, you may choose to leave a small "landing strip."

Q:  What is a Brazini?
A:  A Brazini is simply my term for hair removal that is much more than a standard bikini wax, but less than a Brazilian.

Q:  Is there anything I should avoid prior to my hair removal appointment?
A:  No hair removal will be performed if you are using Retin-A or any of its derivatives, Accutane, certain prescription skin care products, or have had recent laser resurfacing, chemical peels, or microdermabrasion procedures.  Please inform me what medications you are taking as certain medications can aggravate the skin when waxing.

Q:  Is there anything I need to avoid after my waxing appointment?
A:  No vigorous exercise immediately after hair removal as this can lead to irritation.  No hot shower, sauna, or swimming for at least 4 hours following service.   UV exposure should be limited for the next 24 hours.

Q:  What is Vajazzle?
A:   Vajazzle/Vajazzling is the procedure of applying crystals to the bikini area.  I use Swarovski crystals that are AB coated for enhanced, multi-color shine.  Average Vajazzle area is 2 x 2" with approximately 25-35 crystals per design.  Crystals are applied with a skin-safe adhesive and will last 2-5 days depending on use. 

Q:  What can I expect with microdermabrasion?
A:   Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive exfoliation procedure designed to improve the appearance of fine lines, mild acne scarring, mild hyperpigmentation/discolored skin, and gives a smoother feel and youthful appearance.  Clients typically experience little discomfort from the procedure and describe it as feeling like "wind burn" for a few hours.  Typically a series of 4-6 treatments provides the best results after which maintenance treatments may be desired every 2-3 months. 

Q:  What can I expect with extractions?  Are they painful?
A:  Extractions are necessary in a facial to remove impurities and keep skin looking clean and clear.  Having a facial with extractions on the day of an event on a persons who has deeply imbedded blackheads/whiteheads is not recommended.   Extractions can be uncomfortable and intensity of pain is really dependent upon an individual's pain tolerance.
