Waxing Tips…

Don’t tweeze in between waxing visits! You will get a cleaner waxing that lasts longer if all of the hair is removed at the same time instead of having individual hairs growing in at different times.

The hair must be between ¼ inch and ½ inch long (about two weeks growth) to be waxed, otherwise the wax will not remove the hair completely.

Do not wax over sunburn, rashes, cuts or other skin irritations.

Do not wax when using Differen, Accutane, Renova, Retin A, glycolic acid, alpha and beta hydroxy acids, and some other medications. Let your esthetician know what you are using on your skin. Even if you are applying these medications to areas other than where you are waxing, it is probable that you will experience irritation at the least and skin abrasion at the worst. Sometimes skin is too thin and sensitive for waxing even without using any of these medications.

Don’t schedule waxing services on the same day as a self tanner application (the color may be uneven) or a body scrub (your skin will be too sensitive). Have your waxing done at least one or two days before these services.

 

Do not tan in a tanning booth or sunbathe within 24 hours before or after waxing. If you tan before waxing, there is an increased chance of skin irritation or abrasion, even with no visible sunburn. If you tan after waxing, there is an increased chance of sunburn of that area.

Can I wax the day of a special occasion?
 

We recommend waxing one or two days before a special occasion to avoid any lingering redness.

What can I put on my skin after waxing?

It is best not to put any heavy lotions on the skin after waxing to prevent clogging the pores. Witch hazel or Aloe Vera gel may be used to soothe the skin. It is recommended to wait 24 hours before applying antiperspirant to underarms after waxing that area.

 

What is a normal skin reaction to waxing?

It is normal for your skin to show redness after waxing. Some skin is more sensitive than others and reactions may range from no redness at all to very red. The first time you wax an area, or if it has been a while since your last waxing, you will probably experience some redness and sensitivity afterwards. This usually subsides within a few hours, or for very sensitive skin within 24 hours.

Will waxing make the hair grow back thicker, darker or heavier?

No, it will not. Waxing removes the hair by the root, sometimes weakening the root in the process. Therefore, if anything, waxing may make the hair finer and sparser with repeated regular waxing. As time marches on, normal changes in our bodies can bring with them unwelcome or thicker hair in new places and sparser hair in others. Waxing will not change this process.

How often do I need to wax?

How often you need to wax depends on how quickly your hair grows. Generally it will be every 3 to 6 weeks, or when the hair is between ¼ and ½ inch long.
