Waxing Do's and Dont's
Don't be embarrassed. Like your doctor, anyone specializing in Brazilian or body waxing has seen it all before (literally) and will do their best to put you at ease.
Ladies, don't book a wax just before your period, as this is when your body is most sensitive and the ouch factor will be at it's greatest.
Plan on being waxed every four to six weeks for best results.
Do not have any body lotion or oils applied to your skin on the day of waxing.
Do exfoliate regularly after a wax to prevent ingrown hairs.
Do go prepared. If it's your first wax, you should trim hairs between 1/4 and 1/2 inch.
Do relax. Yes, easier said than done, but the more relaxed you are, the easier it will be.
SOME BENEFITS OF WAXING
Hair takes longer to grow back.
Area stays softer and smoother longer.
No itching or stubble feeling as the hairs are growing back.
Waxed hair becomes finer and more sparse over time. Waxing pulls hair out at the root. Shaving shears the hair in the middle at it's thickest point, so it grows back blunt and thick.
If kept up consistently year-round, repeated waxing may result in weakened hair follicles so that many unwanted hairs no longer grow back.
Gently exfoliate your skin before getting Strip.
For Body Waxing Treatments hair needs to be at least ¼ inch long but preferably ½ inch. Please allow about two weeks of hair growth before your visit.
A pain reliever/anti-inflammatory can be taken 30 minutes prior to a waxing appointment to minimize discomfort.
Limit your caffeine intake the day of your appointment as it can stimulate the nervous system and make waxing more painful.
For ladies, waxing on or near your menstrual cycle can be more painful so please schedule your visit wisely. We can still perform the waxing service just be aware that you may be more sensitive.
Let your service professional know if you have been on any skin medications that could affect your waxing service. These include but are not limited to Accutane, Alpha or Beta Hydroxy Acids(glycolic, salicylic etc..), Antibiotics, Benzoyl Peroxide, Differin, Retin-A/Retinol or any other skin thinning medication.
Avoid Heat 24 hours for after a wax. This includes working out as it produces sweat which carries bacteria into the pore and can irritate skin after waxing. Also avoid sauna, steam and hot tub for one day following a wax.
