How long should the hair be for waxing?

The hair should be about 4 to 8 mm long in order to achieve optimal results.

Can you do a waxing with shorter hair?

Technically, it is possible to wax shorter hair, but it does not make much sense. In order to get optimal and long-lasting results, all hair needs to be at the surface of the skin which is not the case at a length of 2 mm. The hair that is still beneath the skin surface during the treatment would become visible only a few days later.

How long will the results of a waxing treatment last?

Usually, the results last for several weeks. The duration varies from customer to customer, depending on the individual hair growth rate and on methods of hair removal that have been used prior to waxing. All in all, the hair grows back slower with more regular waxing treatments.

Does waxing hurt?

Due to the fact that the full hair is removed from deep within the hair shaft, the treatment is not entirely painless. However, the experience of pain is different for everyone. For one person it will feel less painful than for another. Additionally, there are body parts which are more sensitive to pain than others. Regular hair removal treatments with warm wax will make the hair thinner and easier to remove, the body will “get used” to the treatment and the discomfort decreases over time.

Will there be skin irritation, e.g. redness, after the waxing treatment?

There can be some irritation, particularly after the first waxing. There may be redness and small spots, in rare cases there also may be itching. This is totally normal. Usually, the irritation will subside within a few hours and disappear completely. A soothing gel, e.g. aloe vera, can help to reduce redness. The reaction is normal because the hair is removed from the matrix and the follicle expands. With regular treatments the hair will become thinner, red spots will shrink, pores will become smaller and the skin texture will be more refined, smooth and beautiful.

Will I get ingrown hairs and how can I prevent them?

Skin cells and dirt can accumulate in the hair shaft and block the hair’s way to the skin surface. When the hair continues to grow beneath the surface, it turns into an ingrown hair. Regular exfoliating can help to cleanse the skin and the hair shaft and to prevent potential calluses, so that each hair can grow freely. You should also avoid oily body lotions since they can additionally congest the pores

What is your advice for waxing after-care?

The skin will be sensitive after the treatment so you should avoid sunbathing, sauna, tanning beds, exercise as well as shower gels, lotions and deodorants with chemical additives or alcohol for 24 hours. After that you should take care of your skin by regularly using an exfoliating scrub, a glove or a luffa sponge. This will keep it soft and supple and helps to prevent ingrown hairs.

When can't I wax?

When the skin is injured or irritated, waxing is not advisable. You should also be careful with loose connective tissue, thread veins and varicose veins.

Can I get a waxing treatment during pregnancy?

Generally, it is possible to do hair removal with warm wax during a pregnancy. However, some pregnant women tend to have loose connective tissue, thread veins or varicose veins. This is why we advise against the treatment of specific body parts.

Can I get a waxing treatment with a piercing?

Generally, waxing with a piercing is possible. We will decide individually depending on where and what kind of piercing it is.

When should I exfoliate?

You should start exfoliating approx. two to three days after the waxing treatment and then do it regularly approx. two to three times a week. It helps to remove dead skin cells, stimulates the blood flow and thus leads to soft and radiant skin.

What is a Brazilian wax?

With a Brazilian wax, the hair from the pubic area is groomed or removed completely with warm wax. At Waxme, women can choose between two styles of Brazilian: the Brazilian Hollywood Cut removes all the hair from the pubic area, the Brazilian Triangle leaves a small triangle in the front and the Brazilian Landing Strip leaves a small strip in the front. Unlike the Brazilian wax, the bikini wax only removes the hair at the bikini line so that no hair is visible when you wear one. On Wikipedia you can find an interesting article about Brazilian waxing.

How old do I need to be to get a waxing treatment?

We offer treatments for customers of 16 years and older. The age restriction for the Brazilian wax is 18 but it is available for younger customers who bring a signed parent consent form.
