Waxing Services

The quality of wax that a salon uses is very important. Amy Murphy's Salon & Spa uses various wax formulas depending on skin and hair type. They are formulated and chosen to maintain the integrity of the skin, using "shrink wrap" technology to better grab the hair, removing the entire hair as opposed to breaking the hair at the surface. This also allows the wax to adhere to the hair, not the skin like traditional waxes, preventing irritation.

Please let us know before waxing treatments if you are using or have used Retin A, alpha hydroxy acids, glycolic acids, facial peels, antibiotics, and birth control pills, as they may sensitize the skin and cause further irritation. Waxing should not be performed on anyone who has taken Accutane within at least the last year.

 

Tips for Waxing:

  • Take an anti-histamine or antacid about 30 minutes prior to waxing to prevent bumps, redness, or irritation.
  • Avoid caffeine and alcohol for 24 hours before a wxing service, as they can increase the acidity of the body and create excess blood flow, causing redness and irritation.
  • Do not attempt waxing within 3 days prior to your period. Your body will be more ultra-sensitive during this time.
  • Take a pain reliever 30 minutes prior to waxing if you are sensitive to some of the pain associated with waxing.

 

Perfect waxing is achieved when wax is applied and removed, and all the hair comes off. This can only occur if the hair is long enough to be pulled out by the root. Tweezing and shaving in between appointments causes the hair to be all different lengths and at different phases of hair growth when you come in for your appointment, and prevents all the hair from being properly and most effectively removed.

By avoiding tweezing and shaving in between appointments, and coming in every 2-4 weeks, your waxing treatments will last longer each time and you will remain hair free for longer in between appointments.
