Frequently Asked Questions
Don't hesitate to call us if you have any questions but to help you, below are some of the questions we are frequently asked.
Q - How do I prepare my body for a spray tan?
A - Exfoliate your entire body to remove any dead skin. Don’t wear any deodorant, make-up or moisturiser to your tanning appointment.
Q - What do I wear when being sprayed?
A - This is an individual choice. Most clients like to go naked to get an all over tan but you can wear a bikini, g string, knickers or bra if you feel more comfortable.
Q - How long will my tan last?
A - Depending on your skin type, pre tan preparation and after tan care, a tan will last 5-7 days.
Q - Will I go orange?
A - No. Be Waxed and Tanned uses the best tanning solution to suit all skin types. Our formulas contain the highest grade of Organic DHA available.
Q - How long do I need to wait to have a shower?
A - Be Waxed and Tanned offers both 2hr (rapid) and 8hr developing tans. Both tans produce a beautiful colour, and showering can take place after 2 or 8 hours (depending on which tan you choose).
Q - Is it safe for pregnant women to be spray tanned?
A - There is no evidence to suggest that spray tanning pregnant women is unsafe. However it is important to understand that when a women’s body is experiencing hormonal changes it can alter the dryness and oiliness of the skin meaning that skin preparation and maintenance should be thoroughly managed.
Q - How long does my hair need to be to get it waxed?
A - Your hair needs to be aprox 1cm in length to be waxed. If you have previously shaved, a good indication is about 2 weeks growth time.
Q - Will it hurt?
A - The first time hair is removed you may experience minimal discomfort but each time you get waxed the discomfort becomes less.
Q - How often will I need to get a wax?
A - For best results a minimum of three weeks is recommended between waxes. This is to ensure both stages of hair growth have grown back.
Q - What's the difference between a bikini wax and a bikini g wax?
A - A bikini wax is the removal of pubic hair along the bikini line (any hair visible outside your underwear line). A bikini g is an extended version of this. We take more hair off from the sides and the top.
Q - Can I get waxed if I’m pregnant?
A - Yes you can definitely get waxed whilst pregnant.
Q - I'm getting my first Brazilian. What do I need to do?
A - Nothing at all. You can bring in your own g string or we have disposable g strings at the salon.
Q - How can I prevent ingrown hairs?
A - Regular exfoliating with an exfoliating glove helps minimize the chance of in-grown hairs. Using an anti-bacterial based body wash whilst exfoliating also helps.
IPL HAIR REDUCTION
Q - HOW DOES BE WAXED AND TANNED IPL TECHNOLOGY WORK AND HOW IS IT DIFFERENT FROM OTHER IPL TECHNOLOGY?
A - Be Waxed And Tanned uses the latest generation of IPL by France Medical which has revolutionised the Australian hair removal industry. The new IPL technology introduces a new dimension to other IPL. The light emitted remains constant throughout the length of the flash, which in turn creates a complete control of the heat generated which is less aggressive on the skin and offers amazing results.
Q - IS IT PAINFUL?
A - Be Waxed And Tanned's technology is the latest in hair removal and the safest. It is a lot less painful than other technologies , in fact most clients say it feels 'like the flick of an elastic band'
Q - ARE ALL AREAS TREATABLE?
A - All areas of the body are treatable other than those close to the eyes and the ears
Q - WILL MY HAIR BE PERMANENTLY REMOVED?
A - Almost! Hair will be permanently reduced. Growth is reduced by up to 80% and the regrowth will be lighter and finer. A maintenance treatment will be required every 6 months
Q - HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
A - For your IPL to be successful, we need to treat all phases of hair growth. To capture these growth cycles we recommend treatment every 5-6 weeks. The treated area will appear to shed between the 2-4 week mark. We recommend a minimum of 8 treatments. After a course of IPL treatments, you will notice a dramatic reduction and will be left with significantly finer and less hair
