Frequently Asked Questions
Apart from taking care of your appearance, it is very important to take care of our bodies from the inside out. Here are some tips to help you have a healthy body:
- • Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.
- • Avoid caffeine as much as possible.
- • Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables.
Q1. Do you recycle your wax?
A1. No. A very good question that you should ask any waxing salon you may frequent. Hygiene and customer care are our priorities. Notice we use one trashcan in each room. Our staff empties all our rubbish into the outdoor dumpster daily.
Q2. What is the difference between a Deep Bikini, Brazilian Bikini & a Full Bikini?
A2. Deep Bikini Wax removes unwanted hair immediately outside of the vaginal area leaving a clean triangular shape. Brazilian Bikini Wax removes the hair from the entire pubic region, except for a small patch just above the vaginal area.
Full Bikini Wax removes all the hair from the entire pubic area.
Many women request a Brazilian or Full Bikini because it gives a clean, close wax and the freedom to wear even the most revealing swimwear and lingerie.
Q3. Is it painful?
A3. Any kind of hair remove process will sting or cause some pain, don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Although not as bad as you may think; the fact that you don’t know what to expect couple with anxiety, the first time you are waxed is probably the most you’ll ever feel. Believe it or not we have clients that actually sleep through it.
Q4. How long will the results last?
A4. Although everyone’s hair growth is different, on average a body and or bikini waxing last about 3 weeks.
Q5. Can I go to the beach after waxing?
A5. We strongly recommend to give your skin at least a 24 hour break, however if you must go, use a high spf sun-block lotion, and a hat if you’ve waxed any part of your face.
Q6. What is special about your waxing technique?
A6. We do not use paper or cloth strips. Our green hard wax is melted to a warm comfortable temperature and applied directly on the skin and pealed off almost instantly. This reduces irritation and virtually eliminates hair breakage, which could result in ingrown hairs.
Q7. What do I need to do before and after waxing?
A7. Skin care is very important. There are very interesting products on the market today, many which work wonders for the skin. If you use any, try to avoid alcohol, acidic-based and or abrasive defoliating creams within 3 days prior to getting waxed as they may leave the skin sensitive. We have found that for the best results you may want to use a luffa regularly when you shower; again stop 3 days prior to your waxing appointment. We have also found that the defoliating process not only removes dry dead skin but may also help prevent ingrown hair. After waxing we recommend you wait at least 3 days before using a luffa and or any defoliating products again. Give your skin a break.
Q8. If my skin is irritated or I have a rash can I still be waxed?
A8. Do not wax if you have any skin rash or irritation, as a matter of fact you should contact your dermatologist as soon as possible, and reconsider waxing once your condition has improved 100%.
Q9. Can pregnant women get waxed?
A9. Yes. Actually most of our pregnant clients come in just days prior to delivering to prepare themselves for childbirth.
Q10. Does ABB sell wax?
A10. Yes, from one to 1000 kilos or more with sufficient notice. We have also recently begun carrying the Novena Maternal skin care line and will also be introducing ABB’s own natural cosmetic and skincare products which we’ve been working on developing for sometime.
