Waxing

The BEST of the Best in Wax

At Medical Esthetics by Katie's New Westminster Clinic, I only use Berodin, a premium new generation wax which was formulated by industry experts Count Christian des Garets and Wax Queen Lori Nestore.

 

Berodin Blue Hard Wax is a premium product and the favorite of the hard waxes. It sets up quickly while remaining flexible. This gives the professional freedom to apply wax to many areas without fear of the product becoming brittle or breaking. Hard wax is applied thicker than soft wax and removed without strips. Unlike soft wax, hard wax does not stick to the skin, which makes it less irritating. It is used for the face, underarms, bikini and Brazilian.

Note: If you have been shaving regularly prior to getting a brazilian wax, it’s common to have hair breakage from waxing. Therefore, your brazilian may not be as smooth as you might expect the first time. It takes several waxes to normalize the air growth from shaving. Also, your skin may be very sensitive from the shaving since shaving is a form of exfoliating the skin. It is not advisable to shave in between waxes as this will make the hair coarser and the skin more sensitive.

Cause of Ingrown Hairs: Ingrown hairs are from cutting the hair too close to the skin. The hair then grows into the side of the hair follicle instead of up and out. This results in painful red bumps that can turn into pustules. Regular waxing, exfoliating and moisturizing can decrease the occurrence of ingrown hairs.

Hygiene: Double Dipping is commonly practiced in unethical salons. They dip used waxing sticks repeatedly. This contaminates the entire wax container with harmful bacteria! Not so at Medical Esthetics by Katie. Wax sticks are dipped once into sterile wax, applied to client once and then immediately discarded, to protect you from harmful bacteria and diseases. During one wax session I may go through as many as 20 waxing sticks. Whether it's a Bikini, Underarm or Leg Wax, I am very proud to say... "I NEVER DOUBLE DIP MY WAX STICKS"!!! and I also wear Nitrile Gloves during the service too.

FAQs

  • Does waxing hurt?

    Unfortunately the first time you get waxed is always the most uncomfortable. This subsides with time as the hair becomes thinner and easier to remove. I have undergone extensive training and have mastered various skills and techniques to ensure your treatment is as comfortable as possible. In order to minimise the discomfort, you should have regular waxing sessions, not shave in-between treatments and follow the correct aftercare instructions.

  • How old do I have to be to get waxed?

    You must be 18 years or older to be waxed - especially for brazilian waxing. If you are younger, a parent or guardian must be present. 

  • I'm going on vacation. How soon should I get waxed?

    The recommended time before going on vacation or preparing for any big event (ie. wedding day) is 2 - 3 days. This will allow any redness to pass.  If you've never been waxed, plan two to three visits before your big vacation/event.
