Hair Removal

Threading

  A thin cotton thread specially designed for threading is doubled, then twisted. It is then rolled over areas of unwanted hair, pulling the hair at the follicle level. Unlike tweezing, where single hairs are pulled out one at a time, threading can remove short lines of hair at a faster pace.This is ideal for anyone with contraindications for waxing such as medications, sensitive skin, and allergies to wax products.

Sugaring


Sugaring is a method of hair removal that uses an all natural paste made of 3 ingredients : sugar, water and lemon juice. This specially formulated paste removes hair naturally and gently. Sugar paste is water soluble, making clean up after hair removal easy and not sticky! It is also great for sensitive skin. 

Waxing

This is a very popular method of hair removal. Waxing removes hairs slightly below the surface and encourages a softer non-stubby re-growth. Some women feel that over time, waxing actually discourages hair re-growth. Facial treatment last 2 to 4 weeks, Body treatment last 3 to 5 weeks, results vary from person to person. Please inform us if you are using Retin-A, Accutane or any acne treatment prescribed by a dermatologist prior to any waxing.
If you have a preference between soft wax and hard wax, please inform us when booking appointment.

F.A.Q

Threading

Q : What is Threading?
A: Threading is an ancient Middle Eastern method of hair removal for the face that uses a cotton thread to glide across the skin, wind the hairs in the thread, and removes them at the roots. It is similar to tweezing, but removes a line of unwanted hair rather than a single hair.

Q : Does it hurt?
A: Like any other method of hair removal, It can be painless to slightly uncomfortable.

Q : What is the difference in threading and waxing?
A: Threading is a great alternative to waxing for guests with sensitive skin, or who may be taking acne medications and are unable to wax. It is beneficial for guests who do not want the "red and waxed" look.

Q : Do you need an appointment?
A: We take walk-ins if we have an Esthetician available to thread you. As always, I would recommend an appointment, so that we have an Esthetician reserved for you at your desired time.

Waxing

Q : What is waxing?
A: A method of hair removal where wax is applied to the skin, and pulled off either by itself or with a strip, depending on the wax used.

Q : Does it hurt?
A: Like any other method of hair removal, It can be painless to slightly uncomfortable.

Q : Do you have wax for sensitive skin?
A: Yes, we do. Please inform your Esthetician you would like sensitive wax.

Q : How soon before an event should I wax my eyebrows?
A: If you have waxed with us before and have no known allergies or sensitivities, 3-4 days before is a safe bet.

Q : What are the requirements on hair growth?
A: We ask that you have at least 1/4th of an inch of hair growth. roughly the length of a grain of rice.

Q : I've never had a Brazilian Wax before and I'm nervous, any advice?
A: Our Estheticians have 12+ years of experience, and are very comfortable with waxing. They also help you feel comfortable! Relax, you are in great hands. 

Q : What is a Maintenance Brazilian vs. A regular Brazilian wax?
A: A maintenance Brazilian is $45 instead of $60. Maintenance Brazilians help encourage you to return when you have less hair growth. Staying on schedule with your waxes, helps inhibit hair growth permanently.
(4-5 weeks post procedure of a first brazilian or after 6 weeks of your last brazilian at our spa)
