FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

laser hair removal 101

 
 

— 
q:Will it hurt?

A: No...it’s not painful but you will feel heat from time to time or the sensation of a snap against your skin depending on the area. Most areas feel like a misting of water on your skin, and it actually hurts less than waxing/sugaring.

 

— 
q:How many sessions will I need?

A: It’s impossible to tell you an exact number of sessions because everyone is different and there are a few different factors to take into consideration ie. hormones, heredity ...but generally it’s 6-10 sessions (could be more and could be less)


q:Am I able to still sugar?

A: No, while getting laser hair removal the only thing you can do to remove the hair in between treatments is to shave. You would also shave right before your treatment.


q:I have a darker skin tone... will it work on me? Will I get burnt?

A: You can definitely have the service and it will definitely work. Our machine works on ALL skin tones ... the NDYAG:1064 is specifically for darker tones so you will not get burnt and you will have beautiful results.

 


q:My hair is blonde, will it work on me?

A: It honestly depends... dirty blonde to light brown will definitely work but white blonde will not. There has to be some pigment in the hair for the laser to detect it. Unsure? Come in and we can let you know if you would be a candidate. Generally light blonde, white and grey hairs cannot be treated.

— 
q:Why are your prices so affordable? What’s the catch?

A: There is no catch. We just want to provide you with the best affordable laser treatments. We believe that laser treatments should be accessible and sustainable. We want everyone to be able to experience the joy of feeling hair free!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

sugaring 101

 
 

— 
q:What is body sugaring?

A: Body sugaring is an ancient hair removal practice using an all-natural paste made of sugar, water, and lemon. The consistency is similar to a thick honey. The sugar paste is applied to the skin against the direction of growth and is quickly “flicked” off in the direction of growth to remove the hair.

 

— 
q:How long will the results last?

A: Everyone is different, but you will see minimal regrowth during the first 3 to 4 weeks, with a noticeable increase afterward. If you usually shave, it will take a few sessions to achieve long-lasting results. Regular, continued sugaring encourages slower, sparser regrowth and will eventually lead to permanent hair removal if appointments are correctly spaced.


q:What does a Brazilian include?

A: The Smooth Operator Brazilian removes everything from the public area, bikini area, labia, and between the cheeks.


q:How do I prepare for my appointment?

 

A: Ensure the area/areas you are getting sugared are clean and free from lotions, oils, and deodorants. If you’re getting a bikini or Brazilian, we recommend that you wear white cotton panties or bring them with you.

 


q:How often should I be sugared?

A: To maintain that clean, smooth, and sexy feeling, we recommend that you come in every 4 weeks. Your hair will become thinner and more sparse.

 


q:I’m on my period. Can I still get sugared?

A:Yes, although you may be more sensitive a few days before and during your period. Some clients find that it helps to take an anti-inflammatory painkiller about 30 minutes prior to their session. Just wear a fresh tampon and tuck in the string before we start and you will be just fine.

— 
q:How long does the hair need to be?

A: Did you know that sugaring removes hair at a much shorter length than waxing?

We require that the hair be at least ⅛ of an inch long or have 1½ to 3 weeks of outgrowth to ensure successful removal. Waxing, on the other hand, requires at least ¼” of hair for wax to pick it up.

— 
q:Why is maintenance less expensive than the other bikini services?

A: The Smooth Operator Brazilian is what we recommend for any client who has never had a Brazilian from Bodiologie Studio before. It doesn’t matter if you have been sugared before -- if this is your first visit with us, you are considered a Smooth Operator Brazilian client. When you reschedule within 5 weeks, you will then be able to book a maintenance service and you will always be charged maintenance pricing, as long as you are within the 5 week booking period. We charge less for maintenance sugaring for a couple of reasons. There is reduction in hair growth and less time required, plus we do this to show our appreciation to our returning clients.
