What types of hair removal options do we offer and what are the differences?

Sugaring: Our three-ingredient wax: sugar, water, and lemon juice and 100% organic. These ingredients are all heated together to a taffy-like consistency. Once cooled, it’s applied directly to the skin with a gloved hand and then immediately removed. Sugaring is our top choice for those with sensitive skin for bikini/brazilain/manzillian. We can sugar other areas of the body but there is an upcharge due to the additional time that it takes on larger body parts.

Soft Wax: Our propriety organic soft wax is made with beeswax and rosin, oils, and vitamins. The wax is applied using wooden sticks, adheres to skin and hair, and is then removed with wax strips. Because it adheres to the skin, the top layer of the skin is also removed causing exfoliation. The service leaves the skin feeling ultra-smooth and soft. Soft wax is ideal for the entire body, including facial waxing. This particular wax does not work well for people certain body wash soaps. Please let your esthetician know what products you are using.

Hard Wax: Our amazing hard wax is made from rosin which is a natural resin from pine trees and other plants. The hard wax is applied with a wooden stick and allowed to harden as it cools. The wax is then removed with hands instead of wax strip. Hard wax is great for the bikini line and large surfaces.

Combination Wax: Our estheticians often use a combination of hard and soft wax for Brazilians. All options are discussed during consultation to determine the best hair removal option for the unique skin type of each customer.

Intimate Waxing

What is a bikini wax?

Hair extending outside of the bikini and/or panty line is removed.

What is an extended bikini wax?

The same as a bikini wax but includes hair removal on the labia.

What is a Brazilian?

A soft warm honey wax is applied to the entire pubic bone, genitalia, and backside (anus and bum crack) from front to back which removes all pubic hair. The soft wax pulls the dead skin and hair from the follicle with one application per waxed skin surface.

Does a Brazilian hurt?

The initial Brazilian is typically more painful than subsequent Brazilians so long as shaving with a razor does not take place in-between. The sensitivity doesn’t generally last long- very similar to the discomfort felt when a band aid is removed quickly.

Does getting a Brazilian cause bleeding?

Individuals may notice small droplets, especially if hair is really strong and/or thick. In most cases, this is very brief and a cool compress can further minimize.

How long does a Brazilian take?

With our propriety soft wax, it’s quite fast. If it’s your first Brazilian, the process is deliberately slowed down to 15 or so minutes. With continued visits, our Brazilians can be done in as little as five minutes but is dependent on length of hair and tolerance of quick process for the client. TIP: Trimming long public hair before coming in for the Brazilian appointment will result in less breakage of the hair which is less painful and a much quicker experience.

How long will the results of the Brazilian last?

It depends on the individual’s hair growth pattern but for most, 3-4 weeks. For those with quicker hair regrowth, we offer an unlimited monthly Brazilian package or clients can get a second Brazilian treatment within the same month for 50% off the standard fee for service.

Is it safe to have a Brazilian while pregnant or breastfeeding?

Yes, though you should always consult your doctor first.

What if I am on my “cycle”?

No worries! So long as a feminine product is used, it’s not an issue though some women may experience more pain.

Is there anything I need to do before or after getting a Brazilian?

Yes. Exfoliation the day before or same day of service will result in better hair removal. Avoid using lotions or oils before because they may interfere with property of our special wax which can result in a more difficult hair removal process.

After the Brazilian treatment, avoid heavy sweating, swimming/hot tubs, and intercourse for 24 hours because the skin pores will be open which could lead to skin irritation and/or bacterial infection.

Manzilian (aka: manscape)

The male version of a Brazilian. Wax or sugar is applied to the entire pubic bone, genitalia, scrotum (age dependent), and backside (anus and bum crack) from front to back which removes all public hair. If using the soft wax, dead skin and hair from the follicle will also be removed with one application per waxed skin surface.  Sugar is appropriate for men with sensitive skin. Men often enjoy the V-Steam and Mask after treatments as much as their female counterparts.

Brows/Lashes

What is eyebrow lamination?

This process involves using a chemical solution to straighten eyebrow hair. It is similar to the process of perming head hair; however, formula is gentler and safer to use around the eye area. There is no downtime or side effects; however, brows should not get wet for 24 hours for best long-lasting effects.

How long does brow lamination last?

Four to six weeks.

Can I use eyebrow dye with brow lamination?

Yes; however, we recommend dying and waxing (if desired) two days prior to laminating for best brow results.

Last Lifting

A small curling rod is used to semi-permanently curl the lashes. It’s painless and quick and typically lasts the life of the natural lash. Tint may be added during the same appointment. Tint will enhance lash definition, making the lashes appear longer and thicker.

Miscellaneous

V-Steam

This process mirrors the steaming portion of facial. A water infused steaming device is placed approximately 18” above the genital area which results in the opening of pores which promotes circulation loosening the build-up of bacteria and/or blackheads. This a quick 5-minute treatment that clients typically find relaxing immediately following an intimate wax and often precedes a vaginal mask.

Vaginal Mask (aka Vajacial)

Masks are applied to the genital area to even out skin tone, kill bacteria, and/or brighten the skin. We have a variety of mask to chose from. The masks can also be applied to the facial and gluts providing the same results. The masks stay on the skin for approximately 15 minutes.

VaJazzle

Decorative gems that stick directly to the skin, typically placed on the lower pelvic bone. They may get wet and can last up to several days depending on activity. Nice touch for special occasions such as weddings, vacation, b-days, etc.
