How long/short, should my hair be for waxing?
You will achieve a smooth skin after your first three waxing treatments due to the fact that hair grows in stages and your hair is never at the same stage.
Our advice: Avoid shaving between waxing appointments, because it will interrupt getting a smooth skin and stimulate the hair growth again.
How often should I get my waxing treatment?
Our tip: The skin will be less sensitive if waxing is done every 4 weeks.
What should I do before my waxing appointment?
b) DO NOT take or use certain medications and products that can contain glycolic or salicylic acid, oral roaccutane/ acne products such as Accutane, topical exfoliants used on the area such as Retin-A, Renova, blood-thinning medications, because they make the skin more sensitive and increase the possibility of irritation or other problems.
What should I expect after my first waxing appointment?
Will I get ingrown hairs?
The wax will remove the hair and the rots consequently your skin will harden and thicken days after so is important to gently exfoliate. Also, use a mixture of tea tree and lavender oil to prevent irritation.
Our advice: Gently exfoliate the area with a scrub about 2 days after waxing and continue to exfoliate 1 to 2 times a week after.
Our tip: Wear loose-fitting clothes for a few days after to give your skin a chance to breathe and reduce moisture.
