Why Try Waxing Services in Chicago?
Less Skin Irritation
Other forms of hair removal like shaving or depilatory can cause irritation on sensitive skin, so even when you're hair free you might have unsightly bumps! Waxing is much less irritating on your skin.
Since waxing removes hair at the root instead of just the outer surface of the skin, the results are much longer lasting.
Slower Hair Growth Long Term
If you routinely receiving waxing services, your hair will grow back slower and finer over time.
The Waxing Process
What to Expect
Book a Consultation if Needed
If it helps you feel more comfortable, you are more than welcome to book a consultation appointment for waxing services. We can see the density and thickness of your hair type and answer any questions you may have about the waxing process. Then, we can book your waxing appointment!
Arrive for Your Waxing Appointment
Since the wax needs hair to grip onto, you must arrive with your hair grown out at least 1/4 of an inch long and clean skin.
We'll prepare the area, ensure you are comfortable, and begin the treatment. Our waxing professionals work as quickly and effectively as possible to minimize pain while delivering great results.
After your appointment, your provider will go over any aftercare instructions. In general, your skin will be sensitive for a day or two, so take extra care to avoid excess sun exposure and other irritants.
- Avoid shaving until your hair growth is 1/4 of an inch.
- Avoid scented lotions and creams on the treatment area.
- Take an over-the-counter pain reliever before the waxing appointment if needed.
- Avoid irritating the treated area by shaving, scratching, etc.
- Let your skin breathe by wearing loose clothing.
- Apply a cooling compress as needed.

We recommend regular waxing appointments every 3 to 4 weeks to accommodate the stages of hair growth. This timeframe may vary for each individual and their hair type.
Is waxing better than shaving?
For most people, waxing is better than shaving because it requires much less maintenance, slows hair growth over time, and causes less irritation.
