Uni K Wax 101 – The Basics

Why is Uni K Wax definitely unique (“unik”)?   We could say that because we created the Brazilian Bikini Wax, which we did, or that we were pioneers in the the waxing industry by making waxing something more than an afterthought and creating the first dedicated specialized wax only centers, which we did.  But there are a number of reasons that specifically allow us to accomplish what we do, and sometimes it’s the most basic things that are the most important.  Since we are a waxing center, we should of course start with the wax.

Our wax is unique in a number of ways.  We have designed our own wax to have certain properties that other waxes don’t.    It took years to develop an all natural wax with the proper elasticity to remove the unwanted hair from the root, without pulling on the skin.  Hard waxes will break and crack, making the wax difficult to remove and reducing the hair removal efficiency.   Another important distinction is that our wax is applied at “body temperature”. This is an extremely important distinction because if the wax is too hot, not only it can be uncomfortable but sometimes even burn the person getting waxed.  Last but not least ours is a 100% all natural and gluten-free wax making it ideal for even the most sensitive skin.  We make our wax fresh every day in our prized manufacturing facilities in Florida.  This all combines to make for a gentle long-lasting hair removal waxing experience that exfoliates the skin, softens the skin, and leaves it silky smooth.  Noemi Grupenmager puts it this way: “A waxing center needs the foundation of a high-quality wax.  Our superior and elastic green wax is without a doubt singular and can be found only at Uni K Wax Centers.”

However a high-quality wax is only one piece of the puzzle.  There is a basic understanding of the body that a waxer needs to have in order to properly remove hair.  Grupenmager continues, “It isn’t as simple as slapping on some wax and pulling it off the body.  There is a technique that needs to be utilized and we are very specific with the technique we use.”  Indeed, she is correct.

Uni K Wax Centers has developed a rigorous training program for each and every waxer that ensures every customer receives the best service from an educated licensed hair removal specialist.  Our waxers must attend Uni K University and become certified in our exclusive technique.  They are trained in the theory and practice of antisepsis and asepsis; the principles of cleanliness and disinfection; the functionality and physiology of the body’s largest organ, the skin; contraindications and adverse reactions; hair growth patterns; pre and post-depilatory care and professional customer interaction.

Superior wax, exclusive applications techniques mastered by highly trained professionals are the basic foundations of our unmatched quality.  When you add to that, beautifully decorated centers with the highest standards of hygiene, excellent customer service, affordable prices, comprehensive variety of waxing services for both men and woman, you will agree with why Uni K Wax Centers are recognized to be at the forefront of the waxing  industry for over 22 years.

As we make our way through summer, we thought it would be nice to “pamper” our customers, existing ones as well as new ones, to enjoy special discounts every Tuesday in August, from 2 to 5 pm. You get an instant $3 off regardless of the total amount you spend, or 5$ off if you spend $25 or more, and $10 0ff if you spend $60 or more.  And remember  to share this with your friends and get 5,000 award points (equivalent to another $5 off).  Call your center for details, restrictions and most importantly to book your appointment right now… before it gets full!  Online booking is also available.

Answers to Your Questions about Uni K Wax Centers

Knowledge is POWER
As the summer season comes to a close and we all jump back into the routine of school and work, we hope you can learn something new from us: the benefits of our waxing services and body collection products. This month, we feature the answers to your most frequently asked questions.

1. Why is Uni K Wax so unique?
Everything about Uni K is unique. We have thought of everything possible to raise the standards of hair removal waxing for men and women, so you have the best service ever.

  • Our Centers are beautiful, clean, bright, and modern. To find a location near you, visit www.unikwax.com.
  • Our elastic wax combined with our Uni K method allow for multiple and large areas of the body to be waxed at the same time.
  • Our all-natural wax is made from pine resin, beeswax and aloe vera. Our all-natural wax is applied warm and feels like a soothing moisturizer on the skin.
  • Our pre-depilatory products are applied to remove all bacteria from the skin, for a safe waxing procedure. Our post-depilatory products are calming and leave your skin beautiful and glowing.
  • Our on-site lab is where our lab assistants ensure proper procedures of disinfecting, cleanliness and fresh wax preparation are followed. Your very own waxing warmer is delivered straight from the lab to your treatment room and prepared just for your service.
  • Our waxers are graduates of Uni K University, where they receive a thorough training in our Uni K Wax method.
  • Our rewards program is the best way for you to start earning points. Save and/or redeem them when you need them. Visit us at www.unikwax.com for more information.
  • Our Uni K Wax Body Collection is made from all-natural ingredients will keep your skin looking and feeling healthy every day. Available in Center or online at www.unikwax.com.

2. What type of wax do you use?
Our elastic, all-natural wax took us several years to develop. It is our very own unique formula, manufactured in our plant for Uni K Wax Centers’ use. You will not find it anywhere else. Applied at body temperature, it has an amazing ability to remove your unwanted hair from the root painlessly, due to it’s elasticity, without discomfort and without using strips.

3. Is my skin going to get red?
Our wax is made for sensitive skin and from all-natural ingredients. It’s applied at a warm temperature, so it won’t cause irritation to the skin. People with fair skin may experience slight redness that lasts for a few minutes due to the fact that pores are opened after being waxed.
4. What’s the difference between a full bikini and a Brazilian bikini?
Our Full Bikini waxing service is the removal of all hair, down there. Our Brazilian leaves a small strip of hair. Both services allow for the choice to wax the “front only” or the “front and back.” The “back” is the equivalent to our buttocks strip waxing service.
5. What’s the difference between a series and a waxing package?
One of the smartest ways to save is by purchasing a waxing series in advance. Buy six of the same service and receive one service for free. Or get 10 of the same service and receive two for free. Our packages are designed around some of our most popular services and offer generous price savings. Unlike our waxing series, our packages are intended for a single purchase.

6. Why do you use only one spatula?
Uni K Wax Centers are proud to go an extra mile for our customers. Unlike other waxing places (where one waxing warmer sits in a room all day and is used on every customer), your own personal waxing warmer is prepared for you with just enough wax for your service. This is your wax, so we only need one spatula. And no one shares waxing warmers at Uni K Wax Centers.
7. Do you recycle your wax?
At Uni K Wax Centers, once your service is complete, your waxer will return your waxing warmer back to the lab and the lab assistant will discard of all trash including used wax, spatulas, and gloves. Each waxing warmer is then thoroughly cleaned with medical-grade cleaning agents in between each service for each customer.

Unwanted hair in embarrassing places?

When you first think of your hair, you probably think of the hair on your head. But there is hair on almost every part of your face and body. (Some places that don’t have hair include the lips, the palms of the hands, and the soles of the feet.)

We actually have hair all over our bodies from when we are in the womb; the fine layer of hair that covers a fetus and keeps it insulated is called lanugo. After birth, we develop very soft and light vellus hair (better known as “peach fuzz!”), which stays, on our bodies for our entire lives. Vellus hair can be a little thicker or darker depending on the person, but it’s usually less than 2 mm long, and can appear all over the body. Terminal hair is coarser, darker, and longer than vellus hair. Around puberty, terminal hair starts to grow in the armpits and pubic region. Terminal hair begins to grow on the face and other parts of the body such as the chest, legs, and back.

There is no need to feel awkward or shy about excess or unwanted hair at all. Uni K Wax Centers offer an extensive menu of face and body waxing services including unwanted hair removal on the breasts, toes, lips, chin, stomach and back for both men and women. The only area we don’t wax is the head.

Visit our price menu for a complete menu of waxing services for men and women.

P.S. Whatever you do, please don’t shave that unwanted hair, wherever it is on your face and body. It will grow back thicker and courser if you use a razor.  Read our Benefits of Waxing for more FAQ’s about hair removal.

To distinguish between normal and not-so-normal hair growth, visit your physician or a dermatologist to rule out any physical issues.
