Wax On has been offering stellar strand-stripping services to discerning hair producers since 1999 from its fun spa environment. There is no follicle too wispy or fuzz too peachy to avoid the professional waxen maidens at Wax On. Like the helpful, friendly staff chants during their pre-day huddle—if it has hair, it can be made bare. The careful and pleasant purveyors of slickness will use their years of experience and connection with the dark side to target overgrown sprouts and diligently bid them adieu. Put your best face forward for your next photo shoot or photo firing squad with a lip ($15) or eyebrow ($15) wax. Otherwise, opt for a full leg ($50) or Brazilian ($70) treatment to improve your hydrodynamics during a summer of late-night skinny-snorkeling. The waxery also harvests hair from the skin of self-conscious gents looking to quietly rid their neck ($20), chest ($25), or bikini zone ($45) of unwelcome sasquatch fur.
Clients relax as they sip frothy beers and tart ciders amid the elegant white décor of The Wax Bar's lobby before following aestheticians back to a private treatment room for one of a broad repertoire of signature hair-removal services. Staff at The Wax Bar's two locations aim to make waxing or sugaring a luxurious and dignified experience, soothing clients' jangling nerves with drinks from the wet bar. Each aesthetician boasts a repertoire of discomfort-minimizing tricks to ensure sugaring and waxing services for men and women's brows, backs, and bikinis go as swiftly and painlessly as possible. After follicles have said their tearful goodbyes to unwanted hair, aestheticians apply aftercare products and advise clients on the best way to reduce irritation on freshly bare skin. Staff members also offer facials whose targeted therapies incorporate products from Dermalogica and Aveda.
Under the expert guidance of advanced registered nurse practitioner Sima Rafii, the staff at Sima Medical & Cosmetic Clinic restores patients' health and confidence with a full menu of wellness services. Their medical treatments cover dermatologic conditions such as acne, rashes, and sun damage, as well as annual dermatology skin exams covered by most insurances. Armed with lasers, they turn their hands to cosmetic services such as hair removal, fotofacials, and Liposonix body-contouring treatments. The skincare experts with seven years of experience and thousands of injections under their belts, also smooth epidermises with microdermabrasion, Botox, Juvederm, Radiesse, and Xeomin injections, and coach clients on how to care for their skin and train it to win all-state skin care trophies.
Sweet Spot is a hidden gem in Fremont that offers sugaring, a form of hair removal, for both men and women. Considered less painful than waxing, the sugaring process involves applying a warm sugar paste to the hairy area and then whisking the hairs away. The baby blue and gray walls of the salon are offset by bright red accent walls, while local art and an exposed ceiling help to create an urban setting. The salon offers basic facial waxing, as well as back, buttock, leg and even Brazilian waxing. Informative staff provides advice on pre- and post-appointment protocol regarding tanning, workouts and other activities best avoided within hours of service. Free parking, tea and, of course, sweets are offered in the waiting room, soothing newbies’ nerves and relaxing returning regulars.
Like a bit of Brazil set in Seattle’s University District, the Waxing Boutique offers a full range of hair removal services, facials and related products for both men and women. Faux-leafy treatment rooms are situated away from the waiting area and emphasize privacy, with attendants working to make sessions as comfortable as possible. Considering the painful nature of such a sensitive procedure, customers can ask for Topicaine-like solution, used by estheticians as a topical numbing agent, or purchase the at-home Folique solution that works to keep skin healthy, smooth and comfortable between treatments. A sunny waiting area further helps to alleviate any potential stress, thanks to comfortable chairs and colorful wall decorations that further drive home the Brazilian influence.
