Women's and Men's Head-to-Toe Body Waxing

We offer one of the most diverse and comprehensive lists of waxing services in the Chicagoland area. If you can grow the hair, we can wax it off. Because we believe first and foremost in helping you achieve the healthiest and most beautiful skin possible, we do not neglect this purpose when it comes to waxing. Waxing can be unnecessarily harsh if your skin is not properly prepped before and cared for immediately after the waxing service. We take great care to ensure your skin is treated meticulously so that you receive the best results with as little irritation to your skin as possible. With a variety of waxes, skin prepping and post-care products we can assure you your skin will be treated with the utmost care.

For best results

To encourage slower hair growth we recommend you wax regularly. We like to wax when hair has 1/8-1/4 inch outgrowth; so depending upon your hair's growth cycle this can mean 3-6 weeks between appointments. Because we know waxing results are best with regularly scheduled services we offer 40% off your 6th same-service waxing if each of the previous 5 services were performed within a 6 week succession.

Please Note

  • Avoid sun exposure for 24 hours before and after waxing.
  • You are responsible for notifying us BEFORE treatment if you are using or have used any of the below listed or related products. For your safety please tell us if you are currently using or have used Accutane in the past 12 months, or if you are currently using or have used Renova, Retin-A, other retinols or retinoids, other alpha hydroxy acids in the past 2 weeks. These products work by breaking down your skin's topmost layer making it likely that you will lose a layer of skin during the waxing process. This may be painful and lead to scarring. Your skin may also be very sensitive if you have used Vitamin-C facial serums, or products with glycolic acid, or salicylic acid (ex: Proactiv, other cleansers/moisturizers, or acne spot treatments) in the past 7 days.
  • Finally, please notifying us BEFORE your treatment if you are pregnant or have Type I Diabetes. Because these may leave you more susceptible to infection, you may have to provide written permission from your doctor before your waxing appointment with us. Please ask about this when scheduling your appointment so we can properly advise you.

Fitness & Bodybuilding

For Bodybuilders, Figure, Fitness, Bikini Competitors, & general fitness enthusiasts we understand that you may have special preferences or requests to get you prepared for competition, vacation or just for the beach. Because of this we offer shaving at 1/2 of the listed waxing prices, and we highly recommend our moisturizing and exfoliating Body Treatments.

Because of your strict dieting and hydrating restrictions we have found that your skin can be left looking dull & flakey, and may even feel itchy and dry. This can lead to an unnecessarily patchy and/or streaky sunless tan which can be distracting to judges and to the audience at shows or in photos. It is important for you to understand that there are two very different conditions your skin is suffering from: dryness & dehydration. Dryness can only be corrected by restoring oil-loss to the skin's outmost layers, while dehydration can only be corrected by restoring water-loss to the skin's outmost layers.
Note: This will NOT effect the desired result obtained from your dieting. It will simply correct and produce a more even tone & smooth skin's surface.

Our Green Hulk (for men) and Green Goddess Hydrating Body Scrub Treatments will serve the perfect dual function for you. Your skin will look luminous because it is hydrated & moisturized while being exfoliated by ultra mineralizing Dead Sea Salts. This is the perfect skin preparation before you begin your spray or painted-on tan regime.

If you are also interested in waxing please contact us to set up your specific exfoliation & waxing schedule to get your skin best prepared for your event. Let us know in advance if you are planning to use products such as Pro Tan or any other sunless tanning systems so we can choose the best products to use for you.

Waxing FAQ

Open AllClose All

How should I prepare for a hair removal treatment?
To assure ease in removal, any unwanted body hair should be at least 1/4" long. Please have trimmed if longer than 3/4". You will want to refrain from extended sun exposure 48 hours prior to waxing.  You should gently exfoliate your skin a couple of days before waxing.  On the day of your waxing services, you will want to make sure you thoroughly cleanse the area being waxed and that the skin is moist but not greasy from oils or lotions.  Women may choose to avoid waxing during the three days prior to and during their period – the skin is most sensitive during this time, but we would still be willing to preform the service.  Before we begin the waxing service please tell us if you:

  • Have Type I Diabetes
  • Are pregnant
  • Bruise easily
  • Have varicose veins (on area to be waxed)
  • Are sunburned
  • Have a thyroid condition
  • Are menstruating
  • Are using products/medications that are contraindicated for waxing: Accutane, Retine-A, glycolic acid, alpha hydroxy acid, Tazorac Avage, Differin, Strivectin, Renova, Proactive, Avita, benzoyl peroxide & salicylic acid. These are only some of the products we are aware of that may cause a problem and new ones can come along daily.  Your skin is important to you and us – so please check with your doctor if you have any doubts.
Does waxing hurt?
Of course it does if you are new to body waxing, but we promise it will get better with regularly scheduled waxing services. Coarser hair is more painful when removed, so starting out waxing may be more painful, however as you wax with scheduled regularity you will find the hair will begin to grow more slowly and thinner.  With continuous waxing, hair becomes finer and sparser, and waxing will become substantially less painful. If you are especially sensitive to pain or you are first-time waxing client, you may want to take an anti-inflammatory (such as Ibuprofen) 1 hour before your appointment.
Why should I wax instead of shave?
When hair is shaved most people experience signs of regrowth within 24-48 hours. Shaving commonly results in ingrown hairs, bumps and ongoing skin irritation.   When waxed frequently hair grows back slower, softer and without stubble. When appropriate post-waxing home care is followed, waxing leaves virtually no ingrown hairs, bumps or ongoing skin irritation.
Could I be waxed during my period?
During your period your body tends to be more sensitive due to changes in hormones, and this could cause the treatment to be more painful.  We recommend you schedule an appointment after the end of your menstrual cycle. Women may choose to avoid waxing during the three days prior to and during their period – the skin is most sensitive during this time, but we would still be willing to preform the service.
How often can I be waxed?
This depends on the area being waxed and how fast your hair grows. On average, every 3-6 weeks is recommended for body waxing, and every 2-6 weeks for facial waxing. We are willing to wax more frequently if you have enough hair outgrowth. If you are following our waxing special of receiving 40% off of your 6th same-service wax you need to have your appointments scheduled within 6 weeks of each other. We make this recommendation because we want you to experience the most dramatic benefits from our waxing services.
How should I take care of my skin after waxing?
After waxing you will want to avoid the following for 48 hours. Tanning and extended sun exposure, hot showers or baths, saunas and steam rooms, & scented lotions, perfumes, or colognes on the waxed area. Don't allow direct heat on the skin for at least 24hrs after waxing: sunbathing, solarium, hot shower, sauna or steam room use. This can traumatize & burn new skin, as the dead skin layer has been removed with the hairs during waxing. Based on your skin, your esthetician will recommend a post-waxing home-care regimen and products to calm and soothe your skin.
What should I expect from my Brazilian Wax?
You will be provided with a modesty towel and disposable panties. You and the your esthetician will discuss the shape and preferred amount of hair to be removed from your waxing service. L.A. is completely bare from front to back, Rio leaves a landing strip only, San Tropez leaves the center from front to back, and North Ave. Beach is the basic bikini removing everything outside of your swimsuit (for this particular service feel free to leave your underwear on, we will provide protective draping). Your esthetician will start by removing your towel and positioning your legs into place. Pre- wax product is applied to clean the skin and provide a barrier between the wax and your skin. If you feel uncomfortable during the waxing procedure, please let us know we want to ensure that the process is as relaxed as possible. At the end of the treatment we will apply a post-wax product which will promote healing and soothe the area.
Why is my hair not growing back all at the same time?
Hair may break at the surface during waxing if hair is thin or weak causing some hairs to grow out faster. Another reason is that your hair grows in stages, and depending on a follicle's particular stage of growth will determine how quickly it may come back. Also it is common for two or three hairs to be simultaneously produced from one follicle. This is another reason your hair may appear to be growing back inconsistently. With frequent waxing you will find that your hair follicles will begin regrowing hair more consistently.
What are the benefits of maintaining a Brazilian wax?
We hope you will start to maintain and take care of your new Brazilian wax. We strongly recommend you do not wait longer than 4-6 weeks between waxing services. Waiting longer will result in you not experiencing the same benefits as you will when waxing on a schedule. When waxed frequently hair grows back slower, softer and without stubble. You will also become more acclimated to waxing and therefore it will become less painful over time. Our goal is to keep you happy and see you again, so if you have any questions before or after the treatment, please don't hesitate to contact us.
Can you give me any advice for Brazilian waxing aftercare?
Most clients do not experience reactions beyond redness and minor irritation. Hair may break at the root during waxing, if hair is thin or weak, causing some hairs to grow out faster. Please follow these guidelines to minimize irritation and occurrence of ingrown hairs.

Post-Care Waxing Tips:
  • Avoid the sun immediately after waxing and use a sun screen; recently waxed areas are prone to hyper-pigmentation (permanent darkening of the skin) if exposed to the sun, sun lamps or tanning beds. Avoid saunas, steam rooms, whirlpools and other heated sources for at least 48 hours.
  • Avoid heavy exercise for at least 24 hours after waxing.
  • Gently exfoliate waxed area everyday starting 24 hrs. post procedure. However use strong caution because over exfoliation can lead to further irritation. We recommend a loofa, loofa gloves, or washcloth with a mild cleanser gentle enough for use on your face. This will help to prevent and correct ingrown hairs. Also applying a salicylic acid lotion to waxed area daily may also help prevent bumps and ingrown hairs.
  • Avoid tight clothing after waxing, especially in the waxed areas. Tight clothing may result in irritation and ingrown hairs.
  • Avoid sexual activity for 12 hours after a Brazilian. While your pores are open they are more vulnerable to infection by otherwise harmless bacteria.
  • Healthy skin is hydrated and moisturized. Use a gentle moisturizer to continue caring for your skin between waxing, and drink more water as this will keep your skin looking healthier longer. Over dry skin has a tendency to be removed in certain areas along with the hair during the waxing process. Help prepare your skin for your next waxing service by moisturizing daily and staying hydrated
  • Get on schedule. Routine waxing will help your skin gets accustomed to the procedure and may minimize irritation and ingrown hairs. Eventually your hair may begin to grow more slowly, sparse, and softer.
