How Long Does the Hair Take to Grow Back After Waxing?

Because the hair is completely removed by the root, you are guaranteed several weeks of smooth, hair-free skin. Even when it starts to grow back, the hair is softer and thinner. Once the hairs start to come back in, you can have them waxed again, which is usually around 5 or 6 weeks depending on the individual.

Is Waxing Painful?

Waxing is one of the most popular forms of hair removal, it is quick, easy, and relatively painless.

What Do You Do Before and After the Actual Waxing?

We don’t view waxing as hair removal. Instead, it is skincare and we want you to leave with soft, smooth skin. So we place a lot of emphasis on the treatment before and after the wax is applied.

We ensure that the skin is suitably prepared with both a cleanser and pre-wax oil to provide a very thin lipid barrier, which means that the wax sticks to the hair and not the skin making it a lot more comfortable. After the waxing, we have a three to four-stage after-wax routine to remove residue so you aren’t sticky. We cleanse your skin and then soothe and moisturize it with specially formulated products.

How Much Should I Tip?

We recommend you think of your therapist or esthetician as you would any other service provider. Here at Precision Wellness, our therapists love what they do and your tip may reflect your appreciation for their service. Tipping percentages are typically based on the full price of a regular massage, rather than any discounted prices.

Do I have to listen to whale calls or flutes during my session?

No. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. 😉

Studies have shown that music at under 60 beats per minute has a calming, relaxing effect on the body and therefore can enhance your experience so many therapists play slower, quieter, ‘new age’ type music.

However, you can choose to have different music or no music at all during your session. Feel free to ask your therapist what music is available or bring your own music player from home.

When Should I Not Get Massage Therapy?

There are few conditions that would prevent you from enjoying massage. You should not book a massage if you have a fever, cold/flu, or contagious skin infection. That’s it.

There are many other conditions in which our therapists may need to adapt their techniques (i.e. arthritis or osteoporosis) or avoid an area completely (i.e. cuts or burns).

With some conditions such as cancer, certain heart conditions, or high-risk pregnancy it is best to get approval from your physician before you receive massage. This doesn’t mean you can’t get a massage. It is just best to have clearance from your physician if those conditions apply to you.

How Will I Feel After My Massage Treatment?

Most people feel very relaxed. Many people experience a significant relief from long-term aches and pains. Some people feel ready for a nap!

If you received a deep massage, you may be slightly sore the next day or two- much like a good workout at the gym. Sometimes a hot shower, or a soak in the tub can ease this soreness.

After your session, you should increase your water intake a bit. Just a glass or two more than normal is usually fine. This helps keep your body’s tissues hydrated and healthy and reduce any soreness you may feel.

What is Included in My Session Time?

A session consists of massage, time for you to dress and undress, and time to communicate with the therapist to make your massage truly customized. We do ask that you arrive a few minutes prior to your appointment time so that your therapist can give you the full session time on the table.

Each time you visit Precision Wellness you will get a chance to communicate your needs to your therapist. This is to ensure each and every massage session you receive from us is customized to your personal needs and wellness goals.

What does a massage therapist’s license or certification really mean?

A license means that a massage therapist has attended an approved school or mentor program and met all requirements to legally practice massage in your city, county, and/or state. Each therapist must display their massage therapy license with a photo in their practice location at all times.
