OUR STORY

Confessions of a Waxer...


"What else is new, 4 weeks has flown by yet again and there is that telltale sign of a much needed wax. Of course I’ve forgotten to call my local Spa at least a week in advance to book my appointment, so there is no chance that I’m getting in there…and who has an hour and $70 to spend on a Brazilian wax appointment anyways?

Desperate to be bathing suit ready, I knew what I had to do…reaching into my closet for my incognito outfit and sunnies, that seemed to be used far more often than I'd care to admit, I headed to the less-than-desirable "express nail salon".

The place where hopefully no one knows my name, although by now I can’t be so sure with the number of undercover missions I’ve been pulling lately. Praying not to see my BFF getting her bi-weekly shellac, I quietly request my Brazilian wax and briskly slip into the closet-sized room. As my Waxer closes the shower curtain that is used as a door, I try to go to my 'happy place', then suddenly it hit me…why can’t I have the best of both worlds? A high end, trendy environment with professional Waxologists, great prices, AND even accepts walk ins... Enter WAXON."


Confession from our CEO...


"I have a confession, as the CEO of WAXON, I’ve always followed trends in the industry. As I heard more and more about laser hair removal, my mind couldn’t help but wander. Wondering if I would run into friends on my under cover research missions to med spas, I learned that like waxing, laser services elsewhere are neither convenient, affordable or reputable. Hesitant to tell my team, I weighed the pros and cons of this new service but realized that offering laser would offer the best of both worlds to our clients.

Laser hair removal is a more permanent solution where waxing offers the most convenient and affordable hair removal services on-the-go. We’ve emulated our waxing model and applied exactly that to laser: affordable, convenient with the most top of the line laser technology. By combining both Laser and Waxing services at WAXON, we allow our clients to Live Smoother on every budget, hair type, and personal grooming preference.

Before WAXON introduced laser hair removal, options for fast, efficient, reliable and affordable laser options were few and far between, typically only available at expensive medical spas. With WAXON’s laser services, clients now have access to the absolute best in laser technology, while still benefiting from our reliable, consistent and superior brand in a trendy chic environment.

Enter WAXON… your one stop shop for ALL your hair removal needs. “

OUR WAX

FEEL THE DIFFERENCE


At WAXON we understand that everyone's hair and skin type is different, so we use wax that will provide you with the most efficient, comfortable waxing experience, creating flawless results every time. Our Waxologists use a combination of both hard and soft waxes to meet your unique hair removal needs.

All of our waxes are made with natural ingredients and are designed to provide benefits to your skin and are allergy friendly! Some people find that additives in certain wax can cause them to have allergic reactions. Our waxes are made with natural ingredients, however, if you are still concerned, we are happy to give you a free test strip to be sure!

Exclusive to WAXON, we created our Gold wax to ensure a more painless, flawless waxing experience. The hard wax is specially formulated for below the belt services and the ingredients are designed to reduce redness and discomfort to make for a less painful wax experience with more flawless results. Gold has two main ingredients that most other hard waxes lack - titanium dioxide (soothes skin during waxing and reduces redness afterwards) and mica (increases the wax's ability to grip hair resulting in more flawless results). This allows our Waxologists to achieve a faster wax service (15 min vs. 30 min anywhere else) with less discomfort. Not convinced, you need to try it for yourself to believe it!
Our LYCON white cream wax has traveled all the way from the 'land down under' and consists of quality ingredients such as Coconut Oil and Titanium Dioxide. LYCOTEC is used on larger areas of the body and because of its carefully selected ingredients it helps moisturize and nourish your skin while you're getting waxed! It can remove hair as short as 2mm and adheres to even the finest of hairs but not your skin. You can expect a virtually painless experience as well as minimal redness and irritation with LYCOTEC.
LYCOJET the Super Hero Stripless Wax is applied at a low temperature, shrink-wraps around the hairs and removes even stubborn hairs as short as 1mm! LYCOJET can be re-applied multiple times on just waxed skin, without discomfort or irritation. This stripless hot wax is used mainly for facial waxing but also 'works well with others' when used in combination with our hard and/or strip wax. The result with LYCOJET is smoother, hair free skin for longer… LYCOJET eliminates the need to tweeze!

Why is laser hair removal more expensive than waxing?

Laser is a more permanent form of removal and requires the use of the most cutting edge technology by our medically trained estheticians. Waxing is a more affordable short term option for hair removal but in the long run, monthly maintenance can add up to be equal to or more than a laser hair removal package.

You can not wax the area for a duration of 4 weeks prior to your laser appointment. You cannot wax during your Laser course, you will need to shave during this time to make the hair coarser so the Laser can remove the hair more effectively and permanently.

However, hair can grow back sparsely and slowly over the years, and at that point we always recommend waxing for maintenance versus shaving to keep the hairs fine.

Yes, our Laserologists will work around the area.

I have my period can I still get laser?

Yes! Please ensure you let your laserologist know and wear a tampon with the string tucked in.

No, we recommend waiting until after your little one arrives and you've completed breastfeeding/nursing to get laser hair removal. During pregnancy your body goes through many hormonal changes that can change hair growth.

I have a cold sore on my lip can I still get laser?

This is a localised Contraindication, so you can get Laser hair removal on other parts of your face and body, but not on the sore area, it’s best to wait until it has cleared so the infection doesn’t spread.

I have a diabetes can I still get laser?

This is a personal choice. Diabetics can get laser hair removal, but there are some important side effects diabetics should know before proceeding with the treatment. For example, diabetics can feel more pain with laser hair removal due to sensitive nerves and tissues and are usually more susceptible to infections due to the slower healing response.

We avoid waxing over raised mole(s). We trim any hair coming from the area and wax around it, unless requested otherwise by you.

We recommend not waxing over prominent varicose veins because you risk exposing the vein, which can cause bleeding if it is close to the skin's surface. We will only wax over varicose veins if you request and understand the risks.

I have my period can I still get waxed?
Yes, you can! We just want you to be aware that your skin is more sensitive when you are menstruating and your pain tolerance is lower. Just make sure you wear a tampon, tuck the string in and make your Waxologist aware.

HOT TIP: We have BareEase & Cream numbing cream to minimize your discomfort.

I have sensitive skin can I still get waxed?
Yes, you can! Our waxes are designed for even the most sensitive skins, adhering only to the hair and not the skin. If you are unsure, come in and try a test strip to be sure our waxes are suitable for your skin.

Yes you can! Just let us know you are expecting when booking your appointment so we can allow extra time because your pain tolerance is lower.

HOT TIP: We have BareEase & Cream numbing cream to minimize your discomfort.

Yes, all of our Waxologists wear gloves and don't double dip so it is safe to work around it.

I have diabetes can I still get waxed?

We do not recommend waxing IF...
You have a sunburn.

You have been or plan on being in the sun or tanning bed within 24 hours.

If you've recently had treatments such as: chemical peel, Dermabrasion, Microdermabrasion or cosmetic injections.

You are currently taking acne medication such as:

Accutane (affects all body waxing), Retin-A (affects areas the cream is used on) or any other prescribed acne medication.

GOOD NEWS... after 6 months of completing your acne medication, your skin will be less sensitive and less prone to scarring and you will be able to wax again!

Consult your Doctor or Dermatologist about any other concerns.

Can any skin type use BareEASE or Numb Nuts?
They sure can! The only time we do not recommend BareEASE or Numb Nuts is if you have a Lidocaine or Benzocaine allergy.

Whats the numbing ingredient in BareEASE and Numb Nuts?
They each contain 4% Lidocaine

How do I use BareEASE / Numb Nuts?
It is designed specifically for below the belt services. It needs to be applied thickly 30 minutes before your waxing service.

Gals, our BareEASE kits come with a pink disposable latex panty.

How long does my hair have to be to be waxed?
We typically recommend every 3 to 4 weeks, but hair growth varies from person to person. Depending on how fast your hair grows will determine when you will be ready for your next waxing session. Giving your hair time to grow gives the hairs the chance to break through the skin from exfoliation, be the same length and on the same growth schedule. The result is a clean, smooth finish after your next waxing session.

HOT TIP – Our revolutionary Lycon waxes can remove hair as short as 1 - 2mm if you are in desperate need of an 'emergency' wax and need to break your 3 – 4 week routine.

Can I shave in between waxes?
We recommend you do not shave in between waxes because it affects the consistency of your hair growth. Shaving also cuts the hair on the surface causing more of a chance for ingrown hairs.

How do I exfoliate?
Wet the desired area then using a sponge, loofah, scrub, brush or glove, rub in the opposite direction of hair growth. This ensures you do not confuse the hair but instead slough off dead skin cells and allow for the hair to grow in free of confusion, decreasing the chance of ingrown hairs!

Try LoveFresh Sugar Scrub, John Allan Scrub or our IZZI Loofah Bars!

How long do I have to wait to exfoliate after waxing?
We recommend you wait 24 hours before exfoliating because your pores have been opened when the hair was removed and your skin could still be sensitive.

What is an ingrown hair?
An ingrown hair is where the hair spirals, curls or grows different directions under the skin. It normally appears as a red or white bump or sometimes just appears under the skin but sideways. Shaving is typically the leading cause of ingrown hairs as it cuts the hair at the surface of the skin but does not remove the root.

Other causes of ingrowns hairs are:

When clothing rubs against the skin after a hair removal service.

Clothing is too tight and rubbing against the skin on a normal basis.

Irritation from a product.

To avoid or minimize ingrown hairs try Prince Reigns Ingrown Hair Serum.

How do I get rid of ingrown hairs?
We recommend exfoliating daily and applying our Prince Reigns Ingrown Hair Serum.

When I wax I get red bumps, is this normal?
You aren't the only one in this boat... red bumps post-waxing is totally normal.

When the hair is removed, it is being removed by the root and often times, the follicle can be so deep that it causes an initial shock, resulting in a red bump. The bumps shouldn't last more than 24 - 48 hours. If you find the bump is more than an initial irritation and continues, appearing more like a rash, contact us.

What is Prince Reigns Ingrown Hair Serum?
MAGIC! It is a nourishing serum that prevents ingrown hairs and razor bumps while softening the hair follicle.

It also:

Revives and smoothes skin by removing dead flakes from skins surface.

Controls excess oil, lessening chance of pore clogging.
