Waxing Tips

Pre-waxing preparation

In order to get the best of your treatment we advise you to prepare yourself for it:

  • You should wait for 2 to 4 weeks after you shave before you wax to get optimal smoothness
  • Exfoliate : at least for few days due to your appointment, exfoliate the area to lift the small hair up and take away dead skin, that will prevent ingrown hair
  • Wash before you wax: this will help to open the pores and prevent ingrown hair
  • Don’t apply any oils or creams on the area before waxing session as that can interfere with your hair removal
  • While we aim to give you pain free experience, some clients prefer to take an aspirin or paracetamol or use a numbing cream 30 min before your treatment
  • We recommend to avoid sun exposure for 48 hrs before your wax

Please follow our tips to minimalize possible irritation and discomfort after waxing:

  • Don’t overheat the area for at least 24 hrs after waxing: avoid steam room, sauna, hot bath or shower ( only lukewarm water), sun beds, excessive exercising, no swimming in chlorinate water(swimming pools)
  • Avoid exfoliating products for at least 48 hrs after waxing
  • Avoid applying deodorant or any highly fragment products in the treated area for at least 24 hrs
  • Don’t apply make-up directly after facial wax
  • Avoid tight clothing after waxing : use cotton, breathable garments
  • Moisturise your skin daily : with Lavender, Tea Tree cream to avoid any inflammations straight after waxing, any other nourishing creams afterwards
  • After 2 days exfoliate the area 2 to 3 times a week with sugar, coffee  or salt base scrubs to avoid ingrown hair
  • Use salicylic acid based products recommended by your therapist to prevent and cure ingrown hair
  • Don’t pick ingrown hair! It may cause scaring and infection
  • Apply cold compress, Aloe Vera gel or anti-histamine cream to reduce redness, hiving or irritation
  • Don’t shave or use depilatory creams between waxing as it may distort hair growth cycle

It is recommended to schedule your waxing treatment every 4-6 weeks; however, this varies for everyone and your therapist will discuss the duration required between your waxing treatments to maintain silky smooth skin.
