Frequently Asked Questions

If you’re new to the waxing experience, we understand you might have some questions about the process. It is important to us that you feel relaxed and at ease and are absolutely clear about what will happen at your appointment. Here are some common questions we get asked. If you have any other questions or concerns, please discuss them with your Sleekologist at your appointment. There are no silly questions, and our professionals have seen and heard it all without judgement. You may also contact us before you appointment.

How long should my hair be in order to get waxed?

For all body waxing services, the hair should be at least a ¼ of an inch long or have at least 2 weeks worth of hair growth.

Is it going to hurt?

It depends on your pain tolerance, but if you are nervous about the pain you can take a pain reliever/anti-inflammatory 30 minutes before your appointment to reduce discomfort.

How often should I wax?

We recommend every 3-4 weeks.

Can I wax during that time of the month?

You can wax during that time of the month, but keep in mind there is a possibility that you will be more sensitive.

What if I am using an acne medication?

If you are on any topical acne medications, like Retin-A, you must stop using it at least 7 days prior to your waxing service. If you are using an oral acne medication, like Accutane, you must stop using it 6 months prior to your waxing service. Acne medications can cause thinning of the skin, resulting in adverse side effects after waxing.

How old do I have to be to be waxed?

You must be over 18 years old or have your parents’ permission to wax.

How can I soothe my skin after waxing?

We apply a post-treatment serum that is enriched with aloe vera and glycerin to soothe the skin. If you experience extended redness we find that applying hydrocortisone cream can help. Do not exfoliate your skin for two days after your waxing treatment. After the initial 48 hours post waxing, we encourage daily dry exfoliation to inhibit ingrown hairs.

Can I continue to wax when I am pregnant?

Congratulations! Yes, you can keep the sexy smooth you while you’re pregnant. However, be aware that the increase in blood flow to some areas of your body can increase the sensitivity of the skin. Every pregnancy is different, so we recommend that you check in with your doctor when you are within a couple of months of your due-date.

Do I have to be naked?

This depends on what part of the body you are having hair removed from. Whatever part that is should be free of garments that would impede our Sleekologists giving you the best service possible. Don’t be nervous. This is our job — we’ve seen it all!

What if I am in gender transition?

At Sleek, we honor all people in all shapes and sizes, of all genders and of all sexual orientations. We want everyone to feel as good about themselves as possible and we are not here to judge you. Schedule your appointment for the gender-specific parts you have, not the ones you aspire to, so that we may make your perfect Sleekologist match.

Will I get ingrown hairs?

Everyone is different some people do get ingrown hair regardless of whether they shave, use a depilatory cream or wax. We apply a post-treatment serum that is enriched with aloe vera and glycerin to soothe the skin and recommend a dry exfoliation daily after the first 48 hours.

How long should you wait for waxing after getting a tattoo

You should wait two weeks to let the tattoo heal properly but you see a waxing professional.

What if I get an erection?

It happens. This is an adrenal response from your body and our professional Sleekologists will work around this and think nothing less of you. As long as you understand that this is a professional service and not an erotic one, there is no reason to be embarrassed.

What should I do if I cannot make my appointment?

Just give us a call before your appointment time to let us know. If you completely no-show your appointment, we will charge 50% of your services for that day. But again, as long as you call before your scheduled appointment time to cancel or reschedule, you will not be charged. We appreciate all of our clients, but it’s unfair to our waxers and other clients when appointments are no-showed. Thank you for understanding and being amazing clients!

What is skin brightening?

Skin brightening is the process of brightening the skin in areas where you see hyperpigmentation.

What products do you use for Skin brightening?

We use South Beach Skin Solutions. It’s a 5 step process. 

How often can I get skin brightening done?

We recommend doing the skin brightening once every 4 weeks along with your waxing service.

How many skin brightening sessions do I need to see results?

After your first skin brightening session, you should notice that your skin is 1-3 shades brighter. It can take multiple sessions to see your desired results. Every client and skin is different.

Are the products safe for sensitive skin?

All of SB Solutions products are formulated to be gentle and mild on sensitive skin and sensitive areas. They have been used by hundreds of thousands of people around the world of all skin types with great success. With that said, everybody is different. If you have any known sensitivities, we strongly recommend doing a small patch test before applying to a sensitive area.

What is brow lamination?

Brow Lamination is designed to straighten the brow hairs, resulting in full, lifted, and fluffy brows. Simply follow the 3 step process to get all your brow hairs to stand in your desired direction. We recommend pairing lamination with tint to achieve bold and enhanced results.

How does lamination work?

When Step 1 (Brow Perming Solution) is applied, the chemical process breaks down the bonds within each hair, allowing them to morph and move into a new shape. When Step 2 (Brow Fixing Solution) is applied, the hair bond remodels into a new shape. Step 3 (Brow Keratin) is applied at the end of the treatment to restore moisture back into the brows and skin.

How long does lamination last?

If you follow the correct aftercare, the results will last between 6 to 8 weeks. For maintenance, your laminated brows will need to be styled every morning by brushing and setting the hairs in place.

What is the aftercare for lamintaions?

By following the correct aftercare, you can achieve longer-lasting results. We’ve compiled a list of our go-to aftercare tips, which should be followed for 24 to 48 hours post-treatment:

Keep brows completely dry.
Use Oil daily to keep the brows nourished and hydrated.
Do not apply make-up or undertake further eye treatments.
Avoid swimming, saunas, and working out. Any excess moisture can cause a slight curl or frizz to the brow hair.
Do not allow prolonged exposure to direct sunlight or heat.
Do not apply Retin-A, AHA, or exfoliate around the brow area for 72 hours on either side of the treatment.
No self-tanning products should be used on the face for one week prior and 48 hours after treatment.

Is lamination safe for pregnant and breastfeeding humans?

Lamination is not safe for pregnant and breastfeeding women. There is a risk of the chemicals sinking into the skin and potentially entering the bloodstream. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding we recommend consulting with your healthcare professional.

What is tint?

Eyebrow tinting is the process of applying semi-permanent dye to enhance, shape, and define your brows. Brow Code’s richly pigmented tint range stains the skin as well as the brow hairs.

How long does tint last?

Brow Code Tint lasts up to 7 days on the skin and up to 3 to 4 weeks on the brow hairs. Please follow all instructions and aftercare correctly to achieve this longevity.

What is the before and aftercare for tint?

By following the correct aftercare, you can achieve longer-lasting tint results. We’ve compiled a list of our go-to aftercare tips, which should be followed for 24 to 48 hours post-treatment:

Avoid using makeup and facial cleansers around the brow area.
Avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight, the use of sunbeds, saunas, steam rooms, and swimming pools. 
Avoid exfoliating and using anti-aging products around the brow area.
Avoid using any self-tanning products on the face for around two-three days on either side of the treatment. 
Avoid the temptation to over-touch the brow area after treatment. Touching with hands/fingers can lead to oils entering opening pores and clogging them.

Is tint safe for pregnant and breastfeeding humans?

Brow Code Tint is not safe for pregnant and breastfeeding women. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding we recommend consulting with your healthcare professional.
