I can't find you. Where are you located? We are in a stand alone building right off of Spring Creek and Custer in the northwest corner. You can get to us from the CVS parking lot. Look for our signs "Bare Minimum Waxing Studio" and "Luxury Sweet Escape Spa and Salon." We are one of a few suites inside the building that says "Noble Cosmetic Surgery" and our suite, 350c, has windows facing both Spring Creek and Custer. We're right in front and shouldn't be hard to locate, but please call or text us if you have any difficulty.
I’ve never had a massage or facial. What can I expect? When you arrive we will have you fill out an intake form asking questions that help us determine how to customize your service to meet your specific needs. Your therapist will show you into the room and step out to allow you to disrobe. Typically you will remove all clothing and jewelery and then get cozy under the covers. You will be covered by a sheet and blanket at all times, excpet the area the therapist is working on. Please feel free to communicate if anything feels uncomfortable during your session.
I've never been waxed before. How is it done? Waxing is the most common method of hair removal in spas today. Hair on any part of the body or face can be waxed. Warm wax is applied to the area and then removed, bringing the hair with it. There are two types of wax: hard and soft. Hard wax, which is easier on delicate skin, is often used on the face, underarms, and bikini area. Soft wax is used on the legs, arms, back, and chest. Waxing reduces hair growth when performed at regular 30-day intervals. Because waxing pulls the hair out by the root, it grows back softer, finer, and thinner. The more you wax, the less hair grows back. Waxing may not be suggested if you have particularly sensitive skin or allergies to certain resins. Waxing can cause tenderness and swelling. In addition, some medications will cause the skin to react badly to waxing. Don’t wax if you’re taking Retin-A, Accutane, or any type of acne prescription.
How much does waxing hurt? Most people tolerate it well, and get used to the sensation after a few treatments. The level of discomfort you will feel depends on your level of pain tolerance in general, and on which area is being waxed. If you still find waxing very uncomfortable after several treatments, you may look into applying a numbing crèmes 30-45 minutes prior to the service. Clients are also recommended to take two ibuprofen tablets prior to their appointment, to reduce discomfort and decrease inflammation in the post-waxed area. For women, it is generally best not to schedule waxing services just prior to or during your period, as you are more sensitive to pain at this time and will experience more discomfort.
Home care after waxing It’s important to care for the waxed area properly after treatment to prevent ingrown hairs, breakouts, or other reactions. Exfoliation, using a pumice stone or exfoliating gloves with a bath gel, will help keep the skin clear. Avoid using a bar soap because it leaves a film on the body that could cause ingrown hairs. For the face, back, and chest, use a more gentle exfoliant and an anti-breakout lotion (ask your waxer about recommended products). Directly after waxing, avoid direct sunlight and tanning booths, especially while the skin is still red from treatment. For 24 hours after waxing, avoid exercise, hot tubs, and products with harsh chemicals, perfumes, or dyes. Apply a gentle moisturizer 24 hours after treatment.
What is Brazilian waxing? Many people are familiar with bikini waxing, which removes pubic and leg hair that would otherwise show when a bathing suit is worn. Brazilian waxing got its start with the daring bathing suits worn on Brazil’s sunny beaches. It is now common in the United States and is preferred by many for the sleek feeling it provides.The treatment involves waxing off all pubic and labial hair from front to back. You can also request a variation on the standard Brazilian if you prefer to leave a small amount of hair. Try to arrive relaxed and ready to bare all. There is no modest way to receive a Brazilian wax. Your esthetician is a professional, and your dignity as a person will be respected in the treatment room. Be ready to fill out a questionnaire and describe what medications and skin care products you are using. For women, it is generally best not to schedule a wax just before or during your period as it generally will feel more uncomfortable to be waxed at that time of the month; however, the service still can be performed. You can take 1-2 ibuprofen 30 minutes prior to your appointment to decrease sensitivity and inflammatory response following waxing. There are also numbing crèmes that can be applied 30-45 minutes prior to your appointment that help minimize the discomfort of waxing. Ask your esthetician for suggestions.
You may trim the hair to no shorter than ½” in length for best results prior to your appointment. If it’s shorter, the wax may not be effective, and if the hair is longer the wax will tug on the skin more, causing more discomfort. The wax is removed quickly and pressure is applied to the area to minimize discomfort. It is normal to have a histamine reaction following waxing in this area, in which you may see red irritated skin and bumps for 24 hours or even longer. This is very common and will subside. Your esthetician has learned the best techniques for removing the hair efficiently and effectively. Some of the positions you may be asked to be in may be a little embarrassing, but your esthetician is a professional who does this type of waxing frequently and will be very professional and understanding with you.
