Waxing is considered to be the most effective method for removing unwanted hairs from practically any part of the body. Waxing is the epilation method which ensures complete removal of hair shafts from underneath surface of the skin. Waxing is also one of the long lasting temporary hair removal methods. Generally it takes almost
3-6 weeks for new hair to grow back in the waxed area.

Frequently Asked Questions:
How long does the hair need to be?
The hair needs to be a minimum of 1/4 inch in length. This is 2 weeks from your last shave. We know it's hard to let it grow, but longer is better.
Can I get waxed if I'm taking Accutane or Retin A?
Waxing is never done if you have taken Accutane within the past year, and is not recommended if you are currently taking Retin A, Renova, Differin, or skin-thinning acne medications. Please read your medication labels and warnings carefully before waxing if you are taking any of these medications or using any topical cream that contains any of these medications. Common names for these drugs include Accutane, Adapalene, Alustra, Avage, Avita, Differin, Isotretinoin, Renoval, Retin A, Tazarac, Tazarotene, and Tretinoin.
Why is waxing better than shaving?
When you wax, the entire hair shaft is removed root and all, rather than cutting it off at the surface of the skin like you do when you shave. This leaves the skin super smooth with no stubble. Waxing also lasts much longer than shaving and the hair grows back thinner and finer with repeated treatments.
What should I do to prepare for my wax?
Wear breathable clothes to your appointment, constricting jeans may add irritation. Pop an ibuprofen 30 - 45 before your appointment, this helps to dull pain and is a anti-inflammatory (as long as your doctor is OK with you taking it, of course). Also avoid heavy oils and lotions before waxing, especially on the legs. This can create a barrier between hair and wax, making for a less effective service.
What can I expect after my service?
You will see pinkness after your wax, this is totally normal and typically subsides
30 minutes to a few hours after. For 24 hours avoid scrubs or irritants afterwards such as sun exposure, tanning beds, pools/hot tubs and sweaty exercise. If you are planning waxing around a vacation or for brides, we highly recommend booking your first appointment at least a month in advance to see how your skin reacts.
What should I do in between appointments?
Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate! Regular waxing produces a softer, finer hair. If we are not sloughing off dead skin cells and removing oil blockages new hair cannot properly grow out of the skin, which is what leads to ingrown hairs. We recommend using an exfoliating glove at least 2-5 times a week in the shower with your favorite body wash.
Can I bring my friend/partner/spouse along to my appointment?
At Body Perfections, the policy is to allow only the person receiving waxing services in to the treatment room. This allows the best and most professional service without distractions.
