Within our waxing treatments we are using wax rollers for easier application and an almost pain free experience.


To ensure absolute hygienic conditions each client will receive her/ his own personal wax cartridge. 

This will be stored until your next appointment.



So guaranteed NO double dipping and NO contamination through open wax pots standing around!!!




On your initial treatment you will purchase your own personal wax cartridge for $10 (+ GST). For larger areas maybe 2 or 3 cartridges will have to be purchased.

6 things to know before (& after) waxing

DON’T forget to research the salon. When deciding which places are legit, ask a friend to recommend a salon she trusts—or swing by the place to make sure it’s clean. You can also use reviews from sites like Yelp to figure out if others had a good experience there. And of course, if you’re at a salon, you can always request that the esthetician change the sheet (or whatever you’re sitting on) and wash his or her hands before you get started. Better to speak up than risk an infection.


DO avoid exfoliating or drying products before you wax. Although people have varying levels of skin sensitivity, products containing retinol or exfoliating ingredients can make skin even more sensitive than normal—and even prone to burning. So about 2 - 7 days before you wax, stop using prescription retinoids, as well as OTC retinol products, any alpha hydroxy acids, and exfoliating products like scrubs.


DON’T schedule an appointment the week before or during your period. This is when your body is most sensitive to pain. Instead, plan to wax within the first two weeks of your cycle.


DO pain-proof your wax. If you are very sensitive or you are waxing a small area, such as the bikini area, eyebrows, or armpits, consider using an over the counter anesthetic to help numb the area a bit. Post-wax, try using an aloe-based cream (which doesn’t contain alcohol), and ice the area again to reduce the burning sensation.


DON’T hit the gym immediately post-wax. Sweating increases your risk of spreading bacteria to your newly-smooth skin, so definitely plan your workout for a different time. Also, wearing tight clothes like spandex or yoga pants is a no-no if you’ve just had a bikini wax (the friction can cause irritation and acne). In other words, you pretty much have to break out your comfiest pair of sweatpants.


DO call us if the waxed area still hurts 24 hours later. If you notice anything funky the next day—whether it’s pain, swelling, pus, or a strange odor—make an appointment with your doctor or dermatologist ASAP.
