Hair should be at least 1/4 inch long. Wait at least 2 weeks after shaving before starting waxing for best results. If you can pull hair with fingers, it should be long enough to wax.
Exfoliate the area a day before your waxing appointment and lightly moisturize. Avoid tanning for 24 hours before (And after).
Everyone is different. Ibuprofen can be taken before waxing appointment to ease discomfort. Caffeine and alcohol can make you more sensitive. DO NOT USE NUMBING CREAMS Or SPRAYS. They do not work and usually makes the process harder!!
Yes you can. You could be more sensitive but make sure you have a tampon or cup inserted . If you have an appointment scheduled and aren’t comfortable waxing while on period please contact us.
The first 24-48 hours: Wear loose clothing (No leggings). Avoid sweating (No gym, no sauna). Avoid swimming. Avoid sex. Avoid tanning (inc sprays). You want to avoid heat and friction as much as possible. No touchy!! It could transfer bacteria
Exfoliate a few days after wax & continue to exfoliate 2-3x per week & use post care oil or lotion daily.
Bumps happen for a variety of reasons. The most common is a histamine reaction. These typically appear during the wax service. Waxing removes hair from the follicle. Your body perceives this as an assault or injury and histamine rushes to the follicle.
Touching freshly waxed skin can transfer bacteria and lead to bacterial infections. These are typically larger bumps with a yellowish pus. DO NOT pop as that will only spread infection. Leave it to a professional.
Hot summer days make for a moist environment which can create bumps. Try to keep area as clean and dry as possible.
Regular exfoliation keeps ingrown hairs at bay by clearing skin and raising hairs preventing them from being trapped under the surface.
Sometimes skin lifting occurs. It mostly appears in the pantyline and under belly folds where there is more friction, moisture and thinner skin. Apply neosporin or aquaphor, keep area clean and dry.
When this presents everyone ALWAYS assumes “it’s a burn”. It’s not a burn. The wax we use is a low temp wax that stays at a consistent temp and is tested regularly. It is never hot enough to burn. You will not get burned in spots. Thats lifting.
If this is a reoccurring problem then those areas will need to be skipped in the future to avoid repeated irritation. Do not rush home and take a hot shower. Heat will only inflame the area. Do not apply coconut oil. Just let your skin breathe.
Waxing: give yourself 2-3 days
Facials: If facials are new for you it’s best to start small and get a basic ”glow up” facial 2-3 days before event. If you have some correcting to be done we need to start months ahead in order to see change.
Congratulations! You can receive any and all waxing services during the full length of pregnancy , no problem. You can still receive facials, we just restrict certain ingredients and eliminate all devices that are contraindicated. Massages are allowed after the first trimester and are performed on your side with pillows for stability and comfort.
