Waxing Q & A

How does waxing work?

At your waxing session, your esthetician first checks how long the hairs are on the treatment area and trims them to the right length, then covers the area with hot wax. The wax will feel warm but won’t burn your skin.

As the wax hardens, it traps the hairs underneath. Then, as it is removed from your skin, the hardened wax pulls the hair out by the roots. For the next several weeks you can enjoy smooth, hair-free skin, without having to shave.

How does Epilfree work?

Epilfree is a hair growth-inhibiting serum applied to your skin after a waxing treatment. Your esthetician sprays a clear lotion called Activator A to your hair-free skin, which disinfects the area and opens up the hair follicles to four times their normal size.

Your esthetician then applies Toner B to your skin, massaging the serum in the opposite direction of hair growth to ensure that the active ingredients enter each follicle.

After your Epilfree treatment, it's important not to sweat, bathe, moisten the treated area, or apply any skincare products for at least six hours in order to achieve optimal results.

What areas of the body can be waxed?

Waxing can be done on any area of the body where you have unwanted hair. The most popular regions are:

  • Bikini line
  • Underarms
  • Legs
  • Upper lip and chin
  • Eyebrows

Waxing is an ideal hair removal solution for both men and women. Men frequently choose waxing to remove chest and back hair.

What are the benefits of waxing?

Benefits of waxing include:

  • Speed of treatment
  • No stubble
  • No razor cuts
  • No downtime after treatment
  • Up to five weeks of hair-free skin

By adding the Epilfree treatment to your waxing session, you significantly extend the hair-free period following a waxing. Epilfree makes the waxing process 80% more effective.

What is threading?

Threading is a hair removal method developed in India and the Middle East that is useful for removing body and facial hair. It’s most frequently used to shape eyebrows. Threading uses a piece of cotton thread twisted into a double strand. Your esthetician picks out a line of hair for removal with the thread, embeds it in the thread, and pulls the hairs out.

Threading creates neat, precise brow lines quickly and efficiently. It’s ideal for reshaping eyebrows with minimal skin contact and discomfort.
