Bikini Waxing & Laser Hair Removal Edmonton

Bikini Hair Removal? We got you covered!

Types of Bikini Hair Removal, Edmonton

Trends change throughout the years, from the 70’s low-maintenance shag to the 90’s thong-th-thong-thong-thong landing strip. Whether you’re booking waxing or laser hair removal, knowing what to request when making your appointment is important to prevent confusion.

French, s’il vous plait..

French bikini hair removal offers more options for shaping and further removal. Most of the hair is removed from the front leaving a small patch of hair, this includes removal from underside, and excludes the backside. The flattering little v-patch will bring the hairline down 2-3 inches from the bikini line, and give you most coverage at the top and taper neatly into the back. Opt for the symmetrical strip down the centre for a little more coverage. This look will bring the hairline straight down toward the underside, giving you a clean underside.


Contrary to popular belief, the traditional method of Brazilian bikini hair removal does NOT leave you free of all hair below the waist. The traditional method leaves only a small strip down the centre. This look was modeled after the thong bikini bottom worn in Brazil which leaves little to the imagination, but still leaves a “little”. So for you thong sporting ladies, a Brazilian bikini wax will give you the same flexibility with shape and coverage that the French bikini wax offers, but also clears any unwanted strays from the backside leaving you confident from any angle.

Once upon a time in… Hollywood

Who needs hair down there anyway? If this is your motto then opt for Hollywood bikini hair removal and liberate yourself from pubescent hair growth. The name is influenced by the adult industry associated with the provocative nature of the famous city of fast cars, bright lights, fame, and fortune. This method will clear all existing hair from front to bunny tail leaving you G-string ready all around. Many spas will refer to this technique as a Brazilian, so make sure to clarify with your technician.

July Special

Offer valid from July 1-31, 2021. No pre-purchasing. Please include both areas when booking your appointment.

What is the difference between IPL and Laser Hair Removal? The IPL and Laser equipment deliver their results by emitting a specific range of light energy towards a specific target in the skin. Most importantly, both treatments are safe and effective in permanently reducing unwanted hair.

Are you ready for your treatment?

Although IPL treatments are common and safe for most people, there are contraindications that might prevent or delay your treatment. Click here to review pre-treatment protocols, potential side effects, and more.

Maximize your results every session by shaving flush to the skin the morning of your appointment. The treatment works by zapping the hair root, therefore, all forms of hair removal that pull the hair from the follicle, for example, waxing, must be avoided during treatment course.

If you are starting IPL treatments, your appointment will begin with an in-person consultation. Your consultation will be an extension of the information you review online prior to booking. After that, your laser technician will explain the treatment to you before proceeding. Finally, you will receive written post-care instructions to help you

Waxing Pre and Post Care

waxing pre and post care
Warm wax solution is applied in sections over the hair/skin. The wax and adhered hair is then swiftly pulled from the skin.  

Preparing for your waxing service

Waxing PRE and POST care is important to consider when booking your appointment.

The minimum hair length at time of appointment is 1/4 inch.

Waxing can be painful in sensitive areas. Some sensitivity and mild swelling may occur following the treatment. This may take up to 48 hours to completely calm down.

You may take an anti-inflammatory 30 minutes prior to your appointment to reduce discomfort and inflammation following your visit. This is specially great for those prone to ingrown hairs or major irritation.

Waxing Contraindications

Please review the following links before booking your appointment.

Health conditions that can affect waxing.

What medications can compromise my waxing service?

Product ingredients to discontinue prior to my waxing appointment.

Waxing Post Care

Waxing requires 24 hours downtime, therefore, we recommend no swimming, sweating, fragranced products, or sun exposure.

Regular exfoliation is recommended 4 days post waxing to help alleviate ingrown hairs.

Waxing Contraindications and Safety

waxing contraindications
Medical history information is gathered to confirm that your waxing service can be performed safely.

Is Waxing Safe?

Waxing has contraindications and therefore we must take precaution to ensure your waxing service goes smoothly. Your waxing technician will gather some medical history information to confirm that your waxing service can be performed safely.

Waxing Contraindications- Medications

Waxing Contraindications- Health Conditions and Allergies

Some health conditions pose risks to waxing. As a result, certain health conditions will be treated appropriately.

Before proceeding, your service provider will review your health history. This form informs your service provider of allergies to ingredients that may be present in the wax. Typically, we use warm honey or pine resin-based wax.

First time waxing?

Don’t worry, here is what you can expect. Your esthetician will first prep the area by disinfecting and applying a protective barrier to the skin. Next, warm wax is then applied using a wooden spatula and covered with a cloth strip; this is referred to as strip waxing or soft waxing. The strip is then quickly pulled off parallel to the skin and voila your skin is left smooth and hair free!

Prior to booking a wax service ensure your hair is at least ¼ inch long, and has not been sunburned, treated with AHA/BHA, or prescription acne medications. Avoid caffeine for a couple hours before your appointment to reduce sensitivity. Results are visible for about 2 weeks, with 4-6 weeks before you are ready for your next visit. After care for waxing includes: avoiding heat, sun exposure, strong/fragranced, lotions, and washes for 24 hours and frequent skin exfoliation.
