Wax is applied to the entire pubic bone, genitalia, and backside (anus and between the cheeks) from front to back which removes all pubic hair. The wax pulls the dead skin and hair from the follicle.
The initial Brazilian is typically more painful than subsequent Brazilians so long as shaving with a razor does not take place in-between. The sensitivity doesn’t generally last long, very similar to the discomfort felt when a band aid is removed quickly. Guests often enjoy the V-Steam and V-Mask after treatment to cool and soothe the skin.
Individuals may notice small droplets, especially if hair is really strong and/or thick. In most cases, this is very brief and a cool compress can further reduce and minimize this.
It’s quite fast. If it’s your first Brazilian, the process is deliberately slowed down, between 15-30 minutes. Typically a hard/soft wax Brazilian takes approximately 15 minutes while a sugaring Brazilian typically takes 30 minutes. With continued visits, our Brazilians can be done in as little as seven minutes but is dependent on length of hair and tolerance of quick process for the guest. TIP: Trimming long public hair before coming in for the Brazilian appointment will result in less breakage of the hair which is less painful and a much quicker experience.
It depends on the individual’s hair growth pattern but for most, 3-4 weeks. For those with quicker hair regrowth, we offer an unlimited monthly Brazilian package or clients can get a second Brazilian treatment within the same month for 50% off the standard fee for service.
Yes, though you should always consult your doctor first.
No worries! So long as a feminine product is used, it’s not an issue though some women may experience more pain.
Yes. Exfoliation the day before or same day of service will result in better hair removal. Avoid using lotions or oils the day of your wax because they may interfere with properties of our wax which can result in a more difficult hair removal process.
After the Brazilian treatment, avoid heavy sweating, swimming/hot tubs, and intercourse for 24 hours because the skin pores will be open which could lead to skin irritation and/or bacterial infection.
The male version of a Brazilian. Wax or sugar is applied to the entire pubic bone, genitalia, scrotum (age dependent), and backside (anus and between the cheeks) from front to back which removes all public hair. If using the soft wax, dead skin and hair from the follicle will also be removed with one application per waxed skin surface. Sugar is appropriate for men with sensitive skin. Men often enjoy the Steam and Mask after treatments as much as their female counterparts.
A V-Mask is a hydro jelly mask applied to the Brazilian area to even out skin tone, kill bacteria, brighten the skin or improve many adverse skin conditions. We have a variety of hydrojelly masks from which to choose. The masks stay on the skin for approximately 15 minutes.
The steam process mirrors the steaming portion of facial. A water infused steaming device is placed approximately 18” above the genital area which results in the opening of pores which promotes circulation loosening the build-up of bacteria and/or blackheads. This treatment improves penetration of the mask into the skin cells.
Clients love it! They typically find this combo treatment immediately relaxing and soothing following an intimate wax.
Hair extending outside of the bikini and/or panty line is removed.
The same as a bikini wax but includes hair removal on the labia.
This involves a process of using a solution to straighten brow hair. It is similar to the process of getting a perm on your head hair; however, the chemical formula is more gentle and safer to use around the eyes. There are no side effects or downtime, however, you should not get the eyebrows wet for 24 hours for best, long-lasting effects. It is also important not to over process the brows. Like hair, they can be damaged if over processed. Typically you should wait 6-8 weeks between laminations.
Four to six weeks.
Yes; however, we recommend Henna dying and waxing (if desired) two days prior to laminating for best results. We do offer a hybrid dye which can be performed the same day as the lamination.
Microblading is a semi-permanent cosmetic procedure that involves using a manual handheld tool to create hair-like strokes by depositing pigment under the skin's surface. This technique is used to enhance the appearance of eyebrows by filling in sparse areas, defining the shape, and creating a fuller and more symmetrical look. Unlike traditional eyebrow tattoos, microblading mimics the natural look of real hair, creating a more realistic and natural-looking result. It's a great option for people with thin, over-plucked, or uneven eyebrows who are looking for a long-lasting solution. With proper care, the results can last up to 18 months. Overall, microblading is a popular and effective cosmetic treatment that can transform your brows and give you the confidence to look and feel your best.
First let’s talk about powder brows which involve shading the brows using a technique that creates a soft and natural-looking finish to the brows. Unlike microblading, which creates individual hair strokes, powder brow involves using a PMU machine to create a more shaded look that relies on a mist of tiny dots to produce the desired effect. The result is an incredibly soft look that generally lasts for up to two years, and can be retouched according to the needs of the individual. The color saturation and opaqueness can be adjusted to create a subtle or dramatic look. Blade and shade combine the shading of powder brows with individual hair strokes from microblading (or nano brows). You get the best of both worlds.
A small curling rod or spoolie is used to curl the lashes using a similar solution as brow lamination. Typically, the lash lift will last 4-6 weeks. It is important It’s painless and quick and typically lasts the life of the natural lash. It is also important, like brow lamination, not to over process eyelashes. Like eyebrows, they can be damaged if over processed. Typically you should wait 6-8 weeks between lifts. .Tint may be added during the same appointment. Tint will enhance lash definition, making the lashes appear longer and thicker and show off that curl!
Classic lashes provide a natural look that is perfect for daily wear and are not overly dramatic or distracting. They are an excellent choice for individuals who desire more length but already have plenty of lashes. Classic lashes can replace regular mascara, and for each natural lash, one false eyelash is applied.
Hybrid lashes include 30% classic lash extensions and 70% volume lash extensions, and they are suitable for people with sparse lashes who require extra volume to fill in the gaps. They provide the length of classic lashes with the volume of volume lashes, resulting in a more texturized and dense look than classic lashes.
Volume lashes are very dense and are popular for special occasions. They create a lush, full look and are ideal for individuals with sparse lashes. However, they may be too dramatic for an everyday look. Silk lashes are soft and slightly glossy, while faux mink lashes are finer than silk and provide extra fluff, making them ideal for special occasions. Volume lashes are excellent for a classic look with added drama.
Cluster lashes are pre-made fans that are not as customization-friendly as volume sets and are often heavier. In contrast, volume lashes are individual faux mink lash hairs that are lightweight and customized to fit each lash.
Classic, Hybrid, and Volume extensions can last between 4-6 weeks, depending on an individual's natural growth cycle. It is essential to take care of your extensions by avoiding water for the first 48 hours, brushing them out regularly, and scheduling maintenance appointments. Additionally, using a lash sealant and shampooing them with an extension safe cleanser can help extend the life of your extensions.
Dermaplaning is a cosmetic procedure that gently shaves off the top layers of skin using a special instrument to reveal newer, undamaged skin. It is known to help reduce the appearance of acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, and dull skin. The treatment can also remove peach fuzz or unwanted hair on your face, although this is only temporary as the hair will grow back. The procedure can be done on any part of the body, but it is mostly done on the face.
Dermaplaning is different from dermabrasion and microdermabrasion, which are other skin resurfacing procedures that use different tools and take off different amounts of skin. Dermabrasion is a surgical procedure, while microdermabrasion is a non-surgical procedure that uses an exfoliating blade to sand away your skin to remove scars.
People who have skin concerns such as acne scars, actinic keratosis, dull or dry skin, peach fuzz, skin damaged by sun exposure, and fine lines are good candidates for dermaplaning. However, people with preexisting skin concerns such as active acne, cold sore outbreaks, eczema, moles, freckles, skin tags or other skin growths, psoriasis, skin burns, or skin rashes should avoid it.
Before the procedure, a healthcare provider examines your skin to make sure it’s healthy enough for the procedure, discusses your goals, and reviews your health history. The procedure itself does not require general anesthesia, and a numbing cream or spray is usually applied to the face about half an hour before. The healthcare provider uses a special instrument called a dermatome to shave off hair and skin cells gently. Afterwards, they may apply a soothing gel or ointment to reduce redness, swelling, or irritation.
Recovery after dermaplaning varies from person to person, and the length of the procedure depends on the size of the area that needs treatment. After the procedure, your skin may be red, swollen, and slightly tender. You may also notice enlarged pores or small whiteheads on your skin, which usually go away with the swelling. A scab may form over the treated area after two weeks, which falls off to reveal tight and pink skin. You should avoid strenuous activities and stay out of the sun for four to six weeks. The treated area may take up to 12 months to return to your normal skin color.
Dermaplaning is generally considered safe but carries risks such as infection, scarring, and skin discoloration. It is also important to note that the benefits of dermaplaning are temporary, and multiple procedures may be required for long-lasting results.

The process of lip blushing involves using small needles to deposit pigments in the lips, resulting in a semipermanent cosmetic enhancement of lip color and shape. It is important to consider various factors such as pain tolerance, budget, and potential side effects before deciding to undergo this procedure. During the procedure, the provider will numb the lips and insert natural-looking pigment into the lips using small needles. The procedure can take between 1 and 3 hours, and some discomfort may be experienced, although a numbing product is applied beforehand to help minimize pain. The results are semipermanent, and the process may need to be repeated every few years to maintain the desired results. Proper aftercare is necessary to avoid potential side effects such as swelling, redness, pain, infection, itching, rash, scars, uneven coloring, or blood-borne illnesses. If any severe symptoms such as excessive swelling, worsening pain, or pus oozing from the lips occur, it is important to seek medical attention immediately.
Permanent lip contouring is a cosmetic procedure that involves enhancing the shape and volume of your lips using tattooing techniques to create a natural looking contour and add volume to your lips.

The procedure can also be customized to achieve varying levels of enhancement for a more dramatic look. Whether you have naturally thin lips, uneven lip shape, or just want to add a little extra fullness to your pout, permanent lip contouring can help you achieve the look you desire. With the help of our experienced and skilled technician, you can achieve the perfect pout with minimal downtime and a long-lasting, natural-looking result.
Semaglutide is an injectable glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonist that’s administered once weekly. It was originally approved in 2017 — at a much lower dose — to help control blood sugar in type 2 diabetes under the brand name Ozempic. People taking Ozempic to help control blood sugar also tend to lose weight as an additional benefit.
Because of this, Novo Nordisk studied the medication in people without type 2 diabetes, but at a higher dose. Now, semaglutide is 503A FDA-approved for weight loss in adults with a body mass index (BMI) greater than or equal to 30mg/kg² alone or 27 mg/kg² with at least one weight-related comorbidity (e.g., high blood pressure, high cholesterol).
Semaglutide should be used in combination with lifestyle changes, including a healthy diet and exercise.
GLP-1 is an incretin hormone that plays a role in your appetite and digestion. Incretins — hormones released by your small intestine — are sent out by your body after you’ve eaten a meal to help lower your blood sugar by triggering insulin and blocking other sources of sugar. It also slows down how quickly food leaves your stomach (called gastric emptying).
The result of these actions causes you to feel full — lowering your appetite and causing you to lose weight. Medications like GLP-1 agonists are referred to as incretin mimetics since they “mimic” these effects.
As mentioned above, GLP-1 agonists, like semaglutide, were originally used to treat type 2 diabetes due to their blood sugar-lowering effects. However, the weight loss side effect has been shown to benefit people without type 2 diabetes as well.
Semaglutide is available as a single-use injection.
You’ll get the injection once a week, on the same day each week. It can be given at any time of day, and you can take it with or without food.
Semaglutide is typically injected just under the skin (subcutaneously) in your abdomen. Avoid injecting the medication into the same spot every time — change your injection site with each dose. But injecting in the same body area (e.g., abdomen) is OK as long as you’re rotating sites within the area each time.
Since semaglutide slows down how quickly food leaves your stomach, you may experience side effects like nausea and vomiting. Once you get started on the medication, your provider will slowly raise your dosage every 2 weeks to help make these effects more manageable.
The target maintenance dose is 2.4 mg once weekly. Before reaching the target dose, a typical dosing schedule may look like:
0.10 mg once weekly for the first two weeks, 0.20 mg once weekly for the next two weeks, 0.40 mg once weekly for the next two weeks, 0.60 mg once weekly for the next two weeks, 0.80 mg once weekly for the next two weeks, and then 1.0 mg once weekly for the final two weeks of the first 3 months. The next 2 month treatment will reach the 2.4 mg.
Some people may not be able to reach or tolerate the target dose due to side effects. If this is the case, your provider may wait another month before raising your dose. However, they may have you discontinue the medication if you’re unable to reach or stay on the target dose.
As mentioned earlier, gastrointestinal (GI) side effects tend to happen most frequently when using this medication — the most common being nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting. You may experience these effects more strongly when your provider raises your dose.
Additional common side effects can include:
In some cases, semaglutide may cause more serious side effects. The medication has a boxed warning — the FDA’s most serious warning — regarding a potential thyroid C-cell tumor risk. Although this risk hasn’t been confirmed in humans, GLP-1 agonists have been linked to thyroid C-cell tumors in animal studies. Because of this, you shouldn’t take semaglutide if you have a personal or family history of thyroid tumors.
Other serious side effects can include:
Pancreatitis (inflamed pancreas)
Cholelithiasis (gallbladder disease)
Low blood sugar
Allergic reactions (swelling of the face, tongue, or throat; difficulty breathing)
Eye problems in people with type 2 diabetes
Fast heart rate
Suicidal thoughts and behaviors are another risk listed on the medication’s labeling because it’s been reported with other weight loss medications. Let your provider know right away if you’re experiencing any changes in mood or behavior or if you’re having suicidal thoughts.
Since semaglutide can lower your blood sugar, it can react with other blood sugar-lowering medications like insulin and insulin secretagogues — medications like sulfonylureas that cause insulin to be released — and result in dangerously low blood sugar levels.
If you’re taking one of these medications, your provider may lower your dose while starting you on semaglutide. And as a general rule, if you have type 2 diabetes, it’s important to diligently monitor your blood sugar before and during treatment to ensure that your readings stay within a safe range.
Another potential interaction is with oral medications. Semaglutide slows down how quickly food leaves your stomach, which may affect how certain oral medications are absorbed by your body when they’re taken together. Because of this, you’ll want to monitor for any changes with your medication after you start taking semaglutide.
Yes, it is believed that Semaglutide can help curb your appetite. In addition to slowing gastric emptying to make you feel full for longer, GLP-1 also plays a direct role in how your appetite is regulated.
One of the reasons there’s a lot of buzz around semaglutide is the amount of weight people lost during clinical trials. Typically, we tend to see an average of 5% to 10% weight loss with other medications.
Oral weight loss medications tend to be less expensive than the injectable options, but you may not lose as much weight. Let’s review a few of the more popular weight loss medications and how they compare to semaglutide.
Currently, Semaglutide is only FDA-approved to help with blood sugar control in type 2 diabetes and to lower the risk of major cardiovascular events (like heart attack and stroke) in people with both type 2 diabetes and heart disease. If you are taking Semaglutide for either of these reasons, you’ll take it as directed by your healthcare provider since you are using it to manage a chronic condition. But if you do not have type 2 diabetes and are looking to try Semaglutide to help you lose weight, we’ll have a better idea of long-term safety once the FDA reviews data for this new indication. What we do know is that study participants received treatment for a period of 68 weeks (about 1.5 years) during each of the four trials conducted by the company.
Yes. Semaglutide is considered to be safe and effective when used as indicated. But safe doesn’t mean that there aren’t risks. Semaglutide also carries a boxed warning about thyroid C-cell tumors occurring in rodents (with unknown risk in humans), and Semaglutide shouldn’t be used if you or your family have a history of certain thyroid cancers. Semaglutide should not be used in people with type-1 diabetes or a history of pancreatitis. Semaglutide should be used cautiously for people on other blood sugar lowering medications.
The treatment lasts 20-44 minutes depending on the desired area and treatment type.
Resuls are typically visible after the first 5 treatments; however, some can see results immediately. For CryoToining® and CryoFacial®, results can continue to improve for 48 hours after the treatment. For CryoSlimming® results continue to improve over a 2-week period. Results will depend on the individual and their lifestyle.
For CryoSlimming®, avoid working out 2 hours pre-treatment. Avoid carbs/sugars for a minimum of 2 hours before and after the treatment. Ensure that you drink enough water (half your body weight in ounces) every day for the 14 days following your treatment.
The Cryoskin procedure will involve the use of a handheld device that administers controlled cooling to the targeted area. The treatment is generally painless and doesn't require any anesthesia. While some people may experience temporary redness or numbness in the treated area.
There's usually no downtime associated with Cryoskin treatments, allowing individuals to resume their daily activities immediately after the session.
"Cold sculpting" likely refers to a specific brand of cryolipolysis treatment known as CoolSculpting. On the other hand, "Cryoskin therapy" encompasses a broader category of non-invasive treatments that use cold temperatures for various cosmetic purposes. While both CoolSculpting and Cryoskin therapy share the principle of using cold temperatures for cosmetic benefits, there are differences in terms of technology, treatment approach, and the specific outcomes they target.
CoolSculpting is a trademarked name for a specific type of cryolipolysis treatment. CoolSculpting is primarily focused on fat reduction and body contouring. It involves the use of a controlled cooling device that targets and freezes fat cells beneath the skin's surface. The frozen fat cells eventually undergo apoptosis (natural cell death), and the body eliminates them over time through its natural metabolic processes.
Cryoskin therapy is a broader term that encompasses various treatments using cold temperatures for cosmetic purposes. It includes not only fat reduction but also skin toning, cellulite reduction, and facial rejuvenation. Cryoskin treatments use different approaches, such as applying cold temperatures followed by heat, to stimulate collagen production, improve skin elasticity, and promote a more toned appearance.
Cryoskin therapy is offered by various providers and may include treatments for different parts of the body, including the face, neck, abdomen, arms, and thighs. One major difference is that Cryoskin is not painful, there is no downtime, and the process can treat a larger area.
In summary, the main difference between CoolSculpting and Cryoskin therapy lies in their specific focuses and approaches. CoolSculpting is a brand of cryolipolysis treatment specifically designed for fat reduction and body contouring. Cryoskin therapy, on the other hand, is a broader category of treatments that use cold temperatures for various cosmetic purposes, including skin toning, cellulite reduction, and facial rejuvenation. One major difference is that Cryoskin is not painful, there is no downtime, and the process can treat a larger area. A key distinction is that Cryoskin is painless, requires no downtime, and can treat larger areas efficiently.
