WAXING

Why White Lotus? We specialize in Eyebrow design as well as Brazilian Bikini Waxing.  Brows frame the face. We will help you determine the best shape for your face. All brows are different. Let us help you find the perfect brows for you.

Our Estheticians  use waxing techniques which are designed to speed up the process, minimize the pain and awkwardness usually associated with the Brazilian bikini wax, and to ensure the utmost in cleanliness.

Cleanliness, comfort, excellent customer service and professionalism are the guiding principles. Each esthetician receives extensive training that enables them to complete a Brazilian bikini wax in a minimal amount of time. Additionally, there is absolutely no “double dipping” of wax sticks, a common safety and health concern associated with waxing. In addition to the Brazilian bikini wax, also offer a full menu of waxing services.

WAX CURIOSITIES?

–         I heard my hair will grow back thicker and darker after waxing?

No way! Waxing thins the hair; it also damages the follicle making less hair grow back each time.  You will notice softer, finer hair with regular waxing.

 

–         If I am taking medication is waxing a good choice for me?

That depends on the type. There are many medications that increase the sensitivity of your skin. If you are using Retin-A, Renova, or Accutane,  we don’t recommend waxing your brows or face at this time for you. Please let your esthetician know before you begin your service if you are on any medications or have had any skin care services that may interfere with your waxing.  A few other brands to be aware of, as the product may lessen skins integrity : Adapalene, Avage,  Avita, Differin, Proactiv,Strivectin,orTazorac. We value the health of you and abide by this for the safety of your skin.

 

–         Can I go tanning before or after a wax?

We would ask that you don’t. It’s too sensitive either way. Now if it is an airbrush tan, go for it….but only after the wax!

 

–         Can I get waxed if I am pregnant?

Absolutely. However, being pregnant will leave you more sensitive during and after your wax. If you have any concerns please clear this with your doctor.

 

–         I get bumps on my skin after waxing/shaving, sometimes they are painful. What are these?

Ingrown hairs. This happens because the hairs are too thin and cannot push through the skin resulting in inflammation. They can often be painful. Don’t pick, as this could lead to infection. You can help to prevent these by exfoliating using a loofah, exfoliating scrub, or exfoliating glove 3 days after waxing and then thereafter.  Avoid standing water (baths, swimming pools, hot tubs) for at least 24 hours after your wax. Keep the area that was waxed clean to aid in minimizing ingrown hairs.

 

–         I am on my period, can I still get waxed?

Yes you can. Just know that you will be more sensitive during this time. 4 days before cycle and 4 days after cycle you may experience an increased sensitivity as well. Please arrive squeaky clean and with a new tampon at time of service.

– I have never been waxed but want to get a Brazilian for my honeymoon. Can I get waxed a few days before we leave?

We are so happy you want to jump on board with waxing! However,  If you have never waxed before or maybe you’ve not been on board with waxing recently and have a big event coming up, such as your honeymoon, a vacation with your partner, etc., we would not recommend getting your first ever wax a couple of days before you go. It is better to try to get in at least two (2) waxes before you leave. This way you won’t be left feeling uncomfortable for your special event.

 

–        How often should I be getting waxed?

This varies due to the hair growth rate of each person.  Typically, if you are not shaving, tweezing or using any depilation crèmes in between waxes, 4-6 weeks is when you should be booking an appointment for.  For brow and lip and most facial waxing, most clients find 3-4 weeks to be the best.

 

WAXING RULES

SHOWER. Before appointment. Arriving clean and fresh will make you feel more at ease.

GROW. Hair needs to be a quarter of an inch (about 10-14 days of growth) for the hair to adhere correctly to the wax.

RESIST.  The urge to shave between waxing sessions.  Shaving creates sharper, coarser hair! You’ve come so far, don’t go back!

EXFOLIATE. Your bikini line the night before your wax.  Exfoliating will keep ingrown hairs at bay. If you’re prone to ingrowns you might want to make a habit of this.

RELAX. It’s just wax! The anticipation is often worse than the actual event. Block out the waxing horror stories your friends have filled your head with. They don’t come to us! This is your experience and we want it to be a good one!!

BREATHE. Holding your breath won’t help you, although we will remind you to breathe if you must give it a try.  Don’t worry—it really doesn’t hurt that much. We want you to come back, so we won’t do anything to traumatize you!

KNOW.  Every wax after the first one gets easier.  We understand that first timers have no idea what to expect. The first one will be the most uncomfortable, especially if you’ve been shaving prior to it…but remember it gets easier and it’s worth it. Hair free for weeks? Bet your razor never offered that! We would say people leave pleasantly relieved that the wax wasn’t nearly as bad as they expected.

MEDICATE. If you must. Everyone’s pain tolerance varies.  If the pain concerns you, take a couple of advil 20 minutes before your appointment.

ALL DONE.  The magic words you have been waiting for! Now see that wasn’t so bad! Enjoy the smooth new you and we will see you in 4-6 weeks!

 

BRAZILIAN

Who is it for? Those looking for EVERYTHING to be waxed clean

What’s it look like? Say goodbye to all your hair from front to back unless you request a little hair to be left, (aka. a landing strip).

FRENCH

Who is it for? Those looking for a little more than a bikini, but not ready or wanting to bare it all

What’s it look like? A thin strip of hair is left from top to bottom and as much off the top as you choose

BIKINI

Who is it for? Those looking for a more modest approach to waxing.

What’s it look like? Hair is removed from outside the bathing suit line. A little off the top may also be included if you choose.

EYEBROWS

The eyes may be windows to the soul, but your brows are the frames.  Let our talented estheticians help you to find the perfect shape for you. We believe brow arching is an art! We customize our approach to each eyebrow wax we perform. Meticulous skill is applied as we wax, tweeze and trim giving you the upmost polished look.  From teaching you the skill of the best fill in techniques, to guiding you through a grow out process, our highly trained “wax-perts” will help you obtain the perfect, most ideal arches for you!

 

ALL ABOUT BROWS  Q&A

Q:  I have really blonde, sparse brows. Is there anything I can do to make them look thicker?

A: Challenge accepted! Blonde brows can appear sparse but lucky for you we know a few tricks to make them appear fuller. Options:

1) Tinting one shade darker helps to provide shape and definition to a blonde brow. Top that off with a brow wax, and you have brows that wow! This is great for lashes too.

2) Our estheticians can guide you through a lesson on filling in your brows from the most natural appearance to the boldest appearance. Think of it as your brows getting all dressed up!

 

Q:  I have a photo of a celebrity whose brows I love, should I bring it in?

A: Definitely! It is always great to see your vision of the brows you have always dreamed of. We will work hard to help you achieve those arches of glory, but we do ask you to remember there are a few factors that come into play here. First, bone structure, secondly, amount of hair to work with and finally, dare we say perhaps they were photo shopped?  We can teach you how to get that super polished look with a great fill in technique all while waxing those beauties to as close as possible to the photo you love!

 

Q:   Is brow and lash tinting safe? Why could it benefit me?

A: Yes. This product is specially formulated for the eye area. When used by a licensed and trained professional, tinting is absolutely safe.  Most people have no sensation at all to the product, while those with more sensitive eyes may experience very mild eye watering when applied to lashes.  A color consult is performed for brows while lashes typically are tinted black, thus making the need for mascara disappear. So who is tinting for? Most have a vacation planned, or don’t want to fuss with makeup, noticed their brows/lashes are thinning, or they just want brows that wow!
