Before & Aftercare
LET IT GROW! - Avoid stubble trouble by ditching your razor. You’ll get the best results with hair that is at least ¼ inch in length or 10 to 14 days growth.
SCRUB IT - gently exfoliate your skin a few days before your appointment. This will speed up the waxing process and help fight ingrown hairs
RED ALERT! - Inform your technician as to any medications you might be taking (Retin-A, Renova, Accutane, Differin, antibiotics … )These can all increase the rate of exfoliation of your skin and might lead to removing more than just the undesired hair.
PILL POP - Taking a couple of Advil about an hour before your appointment can help with discomfort.
H20 - Skip the caffeine and schedule your visit away from your menstrual cycle - both can make you more sensitive. Drink water, water, and more water! The more hydrated you are, the easier the hair is to remove.
Don’t forget to Breathe.
Think about unicorns and rainbows.
Remind yourself: IT’S WORTH IT!
RED N’ READY - Expect treated skin to be a little sensitive and red anywhere from 30 minutes to 24 hours after your wax.
BE CAREFUL! - Avoid exposure to elevated temperatures (saunas, steam rooms, hot water … ) for up to 24 hours after your wax.
TIME TO HEAL - Avoid exfoliants, scrubs, and loofahs for the first 2 days after your wax. This includes glycolic, salicylic, & alpha-hydroxy acids.
JUST BREATHE - Avoid tight pants or jeans. Opt for loose-fitting clothing such as sweats, dresses, and cotton panties.
SPF - Sunblock. Always. Nuff said.
