Frequently Asked Questions
Sugaring & Waxing
Remember your hair is anchored about 2mm deep into your skin with some hairs being attached with capillaries in their active phase of growth.
The pain level will be more intense in areas that have more hair density vs other regions with less hair.
Your first time will be more difficult than your second time as the growth becomes more sparse, thin, and patchy. So please do not allow your first time to scare you away.
If you believe that you need more time in between services, allow for me to help you decide. Typically with waxing or sugaring it is best to space visits 3-5 weeks apart. This is so that the active hairs, Anagen hairs, may be affected by the treatment. In other words, to hopefully damage/kill the hair follicles to have the hair not grow back. When the hair is sparse the pain level is not as high and the service time is shorter/faster. This will happen over a timely matter.
As you are diligent about continuing services, and following your post treatment care, you will notice visits become easier.
For optimum results, it is best to wait 2-3 weeks for hair to regrow. The wax or sugar needs something to grab on too.
If hair is too short, you will be turned away and not receive any services. Also, when the hair is too short it is more painful and you will not get good results and will leave patchy.

How many treatments are necessary?
Like laser hair removal, a series of 8-12 treatments is typically needed to effectively reduce the hair in most areas. The need for a series of treatments is due to the way that hair grows in stages, with only about 10-15% of the hair on your body at any one time in the anagen stage where Epilfree can be effective. The exact number of treatments needed varies among individuals and body parts. We tell our customers to count on twelve. In cases of hormonal issues, more visits with more frequently can be expected.

However, efficacy of treatment with the preparation is higher than that of treatment by other methods.
