Waxing treatment advice
- First wax may take a little longer than subsequent waxes
Your hair should be the ideal length for waxing to work and to minimise any discomfort, leave it to grow 3 weeks before your wax appointment with us.
Exfoliating is recommended 3 times a week especially before waxing treatment.
Do not moisturise on the day of your appointment.
Let your wax technician know if you are taking any medication that can affect your waxing results, such as blood thinners, Retin-A or Accutane (or similar products).
Wear loose fitting clothes
Take a warm shower before waxing. This will help to open the pore for easy hair removal; you will be given wipes to freshen up with anyway.
You can be waxed during your period, although you may be a little more sensitive and a waxing could be more painful.
Relax during your waxing service, because tense muscles make the area more sensitive.
The results normally keep getting better at least until your 4th wax.
After Waxing (24-48 hours)
Avoid all heat treatments including sunbathing, sun beds, steam baths and saunas.
Avoid swimming in public pools as chlorine may irritate the area that has been waxed.
Do not apply perfumed soap, body lotion, talcum powder or deodorant to the treated areas.
Use only lukewarm water for a bath or shower.
Do not apply make-up to any treated area.
Try to avoid touching skin that has been waxed.
Wear loose-fitting clothes.
After waxing use any lotion in the first 24 hours.
Start to exfoliate and moisturise your skin 48 hours after you had the treatment done to prevent ingrowing hairs.
Use antiseptic cream on facial areas until redness subsides.
