We are The Cera Sisters: sisters and
co-owners of Cera Wax Studio.
We are Monica Gomez & Anna Gomez-Akers and collectively we have more than 20 years of experience in the beauty industry.
Born and raised in San Diego, CA, we are passionate about the business operated from two-coasts, east and west: Monica, a licensed aesthetician, runs the day-to-day operations on premises in our third floor studio suite on Cordell Avenue in Bethesda, Maryland. Anna runs the business, "behind the scenes" from sunny San Diego.
Together it is our mission to provide customized full-service wax treatments for men and women in an environment that will make you feel confident... pampered... sexy. We offer consistent results, impeccable hygiene and services at an affordable price. We assure you that waxing at Cera is an experience... not just a treatment. Find out what everyone is waxing poetic about.
"Not only are we business partners and sisters, we are best friends." ~Anna
We have chosen to master one thing and one thing only: Waxing!
We know everything there is to know about waxing; so when you come to us, we don't just wax you, we educate you about the process and fill you in on the simple “Do’s” and “Don’ts” of waxing.
We have a four step process for your wax treatment:
1. Pre-Wax Cleanse
2. Talc Free Powder or Pre-Wax Oil
3. Wax Treatment
4. Post -Wax Serum
We don't just give you a wax! We wax poetic with an experience that starts with a bottle of sparkling or still water or, if you prefer, a soft drink. Before entering the treatment room, you have the option to select your choice of music. And when you leave, we make sure that you rock to the beat of some chocolate (dark, milk or white) or, if you wish to be nutty, a bag of mixed nuts.
We are passionate about what we do and will strive to make each visit a pleasant and relaxing experience!
We are a waxing-only studio and definitely not a spa. We specialize in the Brazilllian Wax.
Comfort First: We offer full body hair
removal wax treatments for men and women using the highest quality waxes: hard wax is used for Bikini and Brazillian wax treatments to ensure a more comfortable experience; gentle strip wax is used for all other areas.
Safety First: Before your first treatment, you will be asked to complete a form to ensure that you receive the safest wax possible for your skin type. Your waxer will review the consent form with you and then begin your treatment, accordingly.
Hygiene First: To make you feel comfortable, in our restrooms you will find a variety of hygiene cloths, soaps and lotions.
Care First: When your treatment is completed, your waxer will apply a post-wax, essential oil serum to hydrate and nourish your skin, leaving it extra soft. Your waxer will provide you with recommendations for at home care for in between your visits.
