It actually lasts much longer than shaving, it pulls the hairs from the root. It is very important to avoid shaving between waxing appointments. Shaving will stimulate the hair growth again. With waxing you will not have cuts and nicks that often come with shaving. Also, with regular waxing your new hear will become finer and grow slower!

Regular waxing is essential. For many that is every 4-6 weeks. The skin will be less sensitive and the hair becomes finer if waxing is done every four weeks.
The pain associated with waxing differs from person to person and their genetic makeup. One person may have several nerve endings in one area, while another may not. If you have a sensitive skin, remember that any pain is very minor and very temporary
Breathe and relax! Waxing is super quick and speedy. Keep the waxed area protected from direct sunlight for 12 hours, no hot baths, hot tubs, or community pools for 24 hours.
You can absolutely get a wax on your period. You'll need to wear a tampon during your service, but otherwise it will be business as usual.
Yes! Some physicians do not recommend waxing for those with diabetes or who have varicose veins or poor circulation as they are more susceptible to infection. Also there are many medication that can affect your skin. If you are on medication, please consult a physician prior to scheduling an appointment. Waxing is never done on clients taking Accutane and is not recommended for clients using Retin A, Renova, Differin or other types of skin thinning acne medications. Please read the label carefully and consult your dermatologist if you are taking any medication or using any topical cream that contains these medications. Individuals do react differently to these medications and sometimes waxing can be done if proper patch testing is completed.
Also, please advise me if you are allergic to any foods – because if you can’t eat it, you shouldn’t put the extracts on your skin. Please be completely honest with me about about all allergies (this includes latex) and medications you are taking – it is for your protection.
