Precision Waxing Frequently Asked Questions

Does Waxing Hurt?

It may hurt, but that does depend on your pain threshold. However, regular waxing for most becomes practically painless and the first wax is usually the worst, it is a good idea to keep regular appointments and avoid shaving between appointments.

Why Not Shave?

Shaving stimulates potential hair growth and can strengthen the hair follicle. Shaving also cuts the hair at the hair shaft, which not only re-grows with a stubbly feel it can also itch, shaving allows the hair to re-grow the next day or in some cases the same day.

When I Have Previously Waxed Why Did My Skin Become Spotty with Some Ingrown Hairs?

Unfortunately some people are not suited to waxing because their skin has a reaction to the wax. For others, it’s simply an issue with aftercare not being given or adhered to or simply not taking care of the skin in the correct way in between your treatments.

How Long Should the Hair Be Before I Have a Wax?

We can wax hairs as short as 1 mm but for best results ¼ of an inch or full growth of hair can achieve a better wax. Please do not feel the need to trim as shorter hairs are harder to remove.

How Long Will the Intimate Wax Results Last?
