24 hours before your treatment
the day before: Preparing your
skin will remove any dead skin cells, ensuring optimal result
& better experience.
Please be clean: Shower/bath as normal on the day of your appointment.
If you are dashing straight from work etc then a wipe down with
a baby wipe would be just fine, especially for a bikini wax!!
Comfy loose fitting clothing and underwear
according to the area to be waxed will mean you are comfortable
before, during and after your session.
Don’t shave: In
order for waxing to be effective the hair should be no shorter
than a grain of rice (approx 1⁄2 cm). For most people this
means around 7 -10 days worth of growth after you have last shaved.
hot baths: Avoid hot bath, steam
room, sauna and overexpose the area you are having waxed to the
sun 24hrs before your appointment.
Please let me know if you are taking Roaccutane,
or using steroid creams, had any microdermabrasion, skin peels
or are using any products containing AHAs. You may be a bit more
makeup: For facial waxing, it’ll
get removed from that area anyway!
n Potions: Don’t use any
moisturizers on the area to be treated on the day itself.
I don’t intend to inflict
any pain but everyone reacts differently due individual sensitivity
levels. If you are concerned an anti-inflammatory like ibuprofen
about 30 mins prior, it helps with pain relief and will protect
you from minor swelling. Us girls can be more sensitive during
our monthly cycle, so try to get the wax done at least three days
before or after menstruating. Also Caffeine, menstruation and
pregnancy increase skin sensitivity.
your self-consciousness: No
need to be embarrassed there’s nothing I have have not seen
before. The less anxious & the more you relax your muscle,
the better your experience will be.
Don’t hold your breath!! Take a deep breath
in when the wax goes on, then breathe out when I ‘yank’
the wax away and it will feel so much better!
24/48 hours after your treatment
Skin! It is totally normal immediately
after your wax to experience a little bit of redness & a prickly
heat type rash. These symptoms should subside over the next 24-48
hrs if they don’t just take an anti-histamine.
Your hair has been removed at the root
and this leaves your follicles exposed & temporarily more
susceptible to bacteria. This is more common on your first waxing
experience, as the hair bulb at the base of the hair is larger.
Keep the waxed area clean, avoid heat & friction during the
next 24-48 hours.
Again, Wear clean, loose fitting clothes
as this prevents any unnecessary friction & minimize ingrown
No hot baths or showers (cool to lukewarm
in chlorinated pool or other exercise.
alone: Avoid scratching or touching
the treated area any discomfort is temporary.
Lotions n Potions: To soothe and protect the skin, apply Adam
& Eve after wax lotion which contains antiseptic and healing
properties to the waxed area regularly after 24hrs of your treatment.
And always wash your hands before applying any product.
In-growing hairs: To
prevent these little blighters and to keep your skin supple and
help new hairs to grow through normally exfoliate &
moisturize regularly. The use of a good quality scrub is highly
recommended after 2 – 3 days of waxing.
Getting hairy again: You
may notice a small amount of re-growth after a few days or so.
It can take up to 4 treatments for your hair to get on a growth
cycle that gives best results. Hair needs to be at least 1⁄2
cm long before it can be successfully removed by waxing; please
do not shave between your appointments. To maintain your smooth
appearance wax every 4-5 weeks.
