Q&A

How often do you recommend getting waxed?

It depends on your desired outcome. If someone wants to impact the way their hair grows back, Face Envy recommends booking your next appointment for 3-6 weeks after their first appointment. Your regrowth is at its first stage 3-6 weeks after removal. When you keep removing it at this stage, it interrupts the growth cycle, resulting in finer, sparser regrowth.

 

How long does my hair have to be?

It is recommended that hair be at least 1/4" long but not longer than 1/2".

 

What type of hair can be waxed?

All types of hair! Sugaring may not be the good option for individuals with very course hair, which is why Face Envy provides two hair removal products so we can care for all hair types. Please note that regardless of product used, fine hairs do run the risk of breaking off during the removal process due to their fine nature.

What should sort of at home care should I be doing?

Proper home care is crucial in maintaining good hair removal. Your skin is constantly renewing itself and proper exfoliation and hydrating maintain the integrity of your skin making it easier for your new growth to come out. Additionally, consistent exfoliation and hydration will help eliminate the risk of ingrown hairs/bumps/pimples/etc.  

 

Does it hurt?

Hair removal pain varies per person and per body area. Generally, your first time is the most "painful" because it is new to you and your hair. Once on a schedule, you and your hair become accustom to the process.

Is all the hair removed from the area?

This varies per person and depends on factors such as if doing hair removal for the first time or on a schedule; how coarse or fine your hair is; etc. Sometimes there are shorter and finer hairs that are not grabbed by the product the first time but they should come out nicely at your next appointment.
