FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long should the hair be?
For optimal results, we recommend your hair be at least 1/4th inch long, or the size of a grain of rice. If it is much longer, we recommend trimming prior to your reservation- but not too short! You should be able to pull up and lift the hair away from the skin using your fingers.
How do I prepare for my wax?
- Gently exfoliate the area two days before your service. (Do NOT exfoliate the day of your waxing)
How old do you have to be to wax?
You must be at least 18 years of age, or have parental approval/signature to wax with us. Any minor must bring a parent or legal guardian to the first visit.
Do you offer any special deals or discounts to new guests?
YES! Please call or text us to learn about new guest promotions!
How often should I wax?
- Facial services/Underarms- every 2 to 3weeks
Does it hurt?
Anytime you remove hair from the root, it is going to hurt. Our estheticians do anything and everything possible to minimize your pain. We will check in with you multiple times throughout your service, and make sure you are doing alright. If you need to take a small break without any pulls, we encourage you to speak up. We want to make this as pleasant of an experience for you as humanely possible. Your first wax is ALWAYS going to be the most painful. We advise you to continue waxing, as it truly does get better and easier the more frequently you visit!
What can I expect afterwards?
The skin may be tender in the waxed area for the first day or two, it may even break out into little bumps, especially if it was your first time or if your roots are deep. The upper lip, back, chest and bikini are the most common areas to be affected. This is a normal reaction and will clear up on it’s own. You may also use over the counter hydrocortisone cream to the affected area for quicker recovery.
Can I wax during that time of month?
Absolutely! However, you may experience more sensitivity during your menstrual cycle. For sanitary reasons, we will only be able to wax you if proper hygiene is maintained and the proper feminine products are being used during your service. Please call, or text us with any questions.
What kind of wax do you use?
At Bare Arizona we are fully trained in both hard, and soft wax. We use the most elite, most gentle wax on the market to ensure maximum results with minimal discomfort. If you have a preference of wax, please let your esthetician know at time of booking your reservation, or before your service.
What can I do about ingrown hairs?
We have different options if ingrown hairs are of a concern. We do offer an ingrown hair enzyme treatment, which is a great option for an in-suite add on! Additionally, we also offer aftercare products specifically designed to treat ingrown hairs and give you the best waxing results. Your esthetician will recommend which products to use and when they should be applied for maximum benefits. Aside from products the most important thing you can do is keep your skin clean, exfoliate regularly and do not dig, poke or mess with your ingrown hairs. Leave it to your esthetician to assist you at your next visit.
