Q: Why do Reveal have so many variants of wax?
A: At Reveal Wax Salon, variant means for different type of hair and efficacy, not just "fragrant" or gimmick like other salons. We look at your hair type mix & match and use different variant to guarantee the full waxing efficacy.
Q: How many variants of wax does Reveal have?
A: Unlike other salons using only one type of wax during a treatment, "variant means for different hair type", we always mix & match different types of wax to best-offer superior waxing efficacy.
Q: What sanitary measures do you take at your salon?
A: This is a great question! Since we are educators in waxing (especially Brazilian waxing) we are meticulous when it comes to sanitation. Here are some of the precautions we take and why: We never use the same applicator twice. Each and every time our waxing applicator touches your skin to apply the wax, it is thrown away. This is to avoid cross contamination. We ALWAYS WEAR GLOVES.
Products Knowledge
Q: What are the different types of Wax?
A: Generally, there are 2 types of wax, commonly known as “soft” wax and “hard” wax.

Soft wax has a sticky consistency. It is spread in a thin layer over the skin, and then a cloth is applied over it. The cloth is quickly removed, taking the hair with it. Soft wax is great for less sensitive areas of the body such as legs, chest and back.  On our menu we called this “Strip”.

Hard wax also has a sticky consistency, is applied to the skin and quickly loses its stickiness as it cools and sets up. A corner of the wax is then flicked up and the strip is removed, taking the hair with it. Hard wax is best for more delicate areas such as the face and genitals.  We carry many variant of this type of wax to best suit your skin and hair type including “hypoallergenic” variant.

Genitals are quite sensitive and hard wax is actually more suitable since soft wax may increase the pain. Both types of wax are often referred to as “hot wax’. The term is really misleading. It’s necessary to warm the wax in order to use it, but it is not actually “hot”. It’s not going to burn.
Q: What is a Brazilian Wax?
A: Brazilian waxing refers to hair removal around the anus, perineum and vagina or penis. To some people it means removing all the hair from the bikini area, and to others it means removing everything but a strip in the front. The Brazilian technique has gained in popularity not only with women but men also. We do have up to 5 treatments for you to choose to best fit your skimpy swimming wears.
Q: What exactly gets covered in a brazilian wax?
A: It includes the bikini line. A brazilian will get rid of all the hair apart from a trimmed landing strip at the top. You can choose to take everything off. So yes, the brazilian will do the lot and it would be the one you want. Plus they look really sexy.
Q: What is the difference between a Brazilian wax and a bikini wax?
A: Brazilian takes it all off. Bikini just does the bikini line.
Q: Do I have to prepare before waxing?
A: The waxer will prepare you, but please arrive on time. .
Q. When is the best time to have a Brazilian wax?
A: The best time is to be waxed about a week after your menstrual cycle, try to avoid caffeine, nicotine, lack of sleep and stress as these can make you feel over sensitive during your treatment.
Q: How long before my wedding should I have a Brazilian wax in order to look "fresh" but not inflict pain?
A: 3-5 days. Get one 6 weeks before and get a second a few days before
Q: How long does the wax last?
A: Normally 4-6 weeks depending on the individual hair growth and needs.
Q: Can bikini waxing be done while I am pregnant?
A: Yes. The process may be more painful because the area is more sensitive. We recommend checking with your doctor during the last two months of pregnancy. .
Q: How much does waxing hurt?
A: As a general guide, the feeling is like being slapped with a plastic ruler and fades quickly.  Follow up treatments are gentler than the first, as the hair hasn't had time to fully develop.  For the first timer, it’s less painful than you think!
Q: What is the effect of waxing on the skin?
A: As dead skin cells are removed in this process the skin can feel quite smooth afterwards. The waxing action does cause the skin to sting and many find a soothing skin healing cream to be helpful afterwards. Some persons find the skin reacts with redness and bumps which disappear a few hours after waxing.
Q: Are there any health precautions to keep in mind with waxing?
A: Some physicians do not recommend waxing for persons suffering from diabetes or who have varicose veins or poor circulation as they are more susceptible to infection.
Users of Retin-A, Renova, Differin or Accutane are advised not to use waxing on the face as these medications tend to weaken the skin and tearing of the skin may occur when the wax is removed.

Waxing should not be done on areas of skin affected by warts, pimples, moles or rashes or on skin that is irritated, chapped or suffering from sunburn. Never apply wax to peeling, broken skin or varicose veins.
Q: Why do guys get waxed?
A: Guys usually get waxed to satisfy their sense of self-image, or because their partners prefer the smooth look.  Waxing can also be cultural, attaching itself to certain professions, and not the ones you'd expect. 
Q: Is Waxing Permanent?
A: No. Waxing may have a general thinning effect but if you stop waxing, it will return to its previous state.
Waxing Tips and Tricks

- Wear loose fitting clothing to your treatment.  If you are receiving a Brazilian Wax, ensure   that you wear undies made of cotton so the skin can breathe, or alternatively, wear none.  Don't wear silks or satins until the skin has calmed.

- After a wax, avoid chlorine pools, saunas, the gym, and hot tubs until your skin has calmed down, usually 24-48 hours, to minimise the risk of inflammation.  Sweating will increase the recovery time.  If you live near a beach, a swim in salt water is great.

- Avoid colognes and antiperspirants until the skin has calmed down.

- Do not exfoliate the waxed area until it has calmed down completely.  Your skin may return to normal quickly or it could take 48-72 hours. 

- As regrowth comes through, gently exfoliate each day then follow with “bump eraiser” – lotion for eliminating, treating and preventing ingrown hair. “bump eraiser” is specifically formulated to both treat and prevent ingrown hairs. It calm, soothe and gently exfoliate the skin surface. Used regularly on affected areas it will banish the itching and discomfort associated with ingrown hairs as well as reduce inflammation and gradually free the hair follicle. Use before waxing to prevent ingrown hairs. Safe to use on the face and body. Ideal for use by both male and female.

- Waxing Treatments should be spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart.  Your hair should be at least 5mm long for the wax to grip it.
