It's the removal of unwanted facial and body hair by the root. Warm wax, the consistency of honey, is applied over the hair to be removed. A cotton strip is pressed over the wax, and then the strip, wax and hair are removed together in a quick pull.
Does it hurt?
It's most uncomfortable at first since it's a new sensation. Any discomfort dissipates quickly and decreases with regular treatments, as less hair is removed each time. Caffeine, menstruation and pregnancy increase skin sensitivity.
How long does it last?
Hair typically grows back several weeks after your treatment. For best results waxing should be repeated every 4-8 weeks, although once a year before your warm-weather vacation is fine, too!
How long does my hair need to be?
1/4''-1/2'' long. If too short, hair won't come out. If too long, hair will break and the service will be less comfortable. I suggest either shaving three weeks before your appointment, or trimming bikini line hair just prior to your appointment.
Will my hair grow back thicker?
No, but after removing hair lightened by the sun darker re-growth may appear thicker. Often hair grows in sparser after regular treatments and since waxing removes hair by the root, a soft new hair with a fine tip grows in, eliminating razor stubble.
How should I prepare for a hair removal treatment?
To assure ease in removal, the unwanted hair should be at least 1/4″ long. For body waxing, plan to exfoliate, or scrub, the area to be waxed on the day before your treatment, to slough off dead skin cells and help prevent ingrown hairs. Always wear clean comfortable clothing that will not irritate the area you are having waxed.

What else should I know about Dermaplaning or Epidermal Leveling?
Dermaplaning is non-invasive and helps make other skin care treatments more effective.
Dermaplaning thins and compacts stratum corneum and thickens the dermis resulting in increased absorption of active products, increased firmness and elasticity, and minimized fine lines and wrinkles. It is very important to provide essential nutrients and protection to your newly exposed skin. When Dermaplaning is used in conjunction with specially designed skincare products, the procedure can make healthy and beautiful skin a reality.
