- We can not wax your eyebrow or face  if you have been using retin-A, acid treatment,
  anti-wrinkle and antibiotic cream .

- We are unable to wax hair if you have been on accutane within 6 months or if you are on a
  strong dosage of antibiotic within 2 months of the medication.

- Please let us know of any medical condition you may  have like diabetes, hypertension and/or
  if you have any allergy  reactions to perfumes, antibiotics or ingredients in the wax  and more.   
  Itchiness  and burning sensation after waxing is a sign of allergy reaction specially with virgin
  hair but in most cases this is normal.  Hydrocortisone cream  is recommended. If the reaction
  persist for over a week, please consult your doctor.

- We CANNOT and we REFUSE  to  perform waxing, especially with  "brazilian" if you  have
  skin irritations or if you are  allergy-prone to waxing.

How to prepare before waxing procedure:

* Hair should be at least the size of the corn grain or half an inch. YOU MUST WAIT
  2 to 3 WEEKS AFTER SHAVING BEFORE WAXING.

* PLEASE MAKE SURE TO CLEAN THE FRONT AND BACK (CRACK) AREA BEFORE
  BRAZILIAN WAXING PROCEDURE.  You MUST clean up (click here).

* Do not cut your hair;  We will trim the hair if needed. No Tanning at least  a week before and
  a week after waxing procedure. 

Most client/s would take 2 pain relievers 30 minutes before their waxing procedure and some of  
them  would  apply   at the same time a  topical  numbing  gel  or cream (can be bought online or
ask your doctor for a prescription). Make sure you are not allergic to the cream or topical.

We suggest not to have your waxing procedure, specially with brazilian, on your cycle or 3 days 
before and after,  since your skin is sensitive during this period due to  enlarge blood vessels. 
However, we will be able to wax you even on your cycle  with tampoon on.

If you think your skin is dry and sensitive for brazilian/bikini waxing procedure, please apply
baby oil to the  area 30 minutes before your brazilian/bikini procedure.  This will  make the wax
adhere to the hair only and not to the skin.  Do not apply oil to the body.  We also recommend to exfoliate the area on the day before the waxing procedure.

Do not drink alcohol when getting waxed, since alcohol makes the skin sensitive when taken. 
Alcohol dilates the blood vessels in the skin resulting in  slow blood circulation and will cause
more discomfort in the hair removal procedure.

Note: If you have been shaving and decided to wax, expect hair breakage during  waxing. 
It is not as  smooth as you think.  It takes series of waxing to normalize the hair growth and
thinning of hair.  Also, Your skin will be very sensitive to waxing after shaving since the skin
gets to be tender from exfoliating often when shaved and that the hair gets very coarse.

*  We refuse to do the procedure if your hair is not ready for waxing or your skin is still
  sensitive from tanning.

* Time frame in between waxing is every 4 to 5 weeks.   Hair starts to grow back in2 to
  3 weeks after waxing hair removal, depending on the type  of hair one has.

Important: Please use only oil (any oil) to take off wax residue from your skin.

We apply  azulene oil  to the body as well as the brazilian/bikini area; and  antibiotic cream
or aloe vera gel on the brazilian/bikini area right after waxing procedure.  Azulene oil calms
down  redness and prevents skin from irritation.  Antibiotic cream or aloe vera gel protects
skin from infection.

We  apply  numbing spray to the area if needed. You may ask for it if you want.  Make sure your
are not allergic to lidocaine.

The more you wax regulary, the easier it gets.  It is not advisable to shave in between
waxing since it will make the hair coarser and the skin will be very sensitive to your
next waxing procedure.
