PRE & POST WAXING TIPS

 

BEFORE A WAX:

-Gently exfoliate the area regularly to prevent ingrown hair. Exfoliate the area to be waxed 1-2 days prior to your appointment

-Avoid shaving in between waxing appointments to ensure the best results possible

-Do not apply lotions, oils, self tanner, or deodorants prior to your appointment

-Avoid tanning beds, saunas, hot tubs, and other forms of intense heat on the day of your appointment

-Hair length should be at least 1/4 inch, or the length of a grain of rice, and no longer than 3/4 inch. Hair that is too short will not adhere to the wax, while hair that is too long can break during the wax and cause ingrown hair

-Stop the use of the following for at least 10 days prior to a wax and 3 days after, as these ingredients can cause the skin to lift or become irritated: topical retinols and acne treatments (Adalapene, Alustra, Avage, Avita, Azelex, Differin, Renova, Tazorac, Tazarotine, Tretinoin, etc), Alpha Hydroxy Acids (Lactic Acid, Glycolic Acid, Citric Acid, etc), Beta Hydroxy Acids (Salicylic Acid), hydroquinone, prednisone, Metrogel, and topical/oral antibiotics (Clindamycin, Doxycycline, Erythromycin, Tetracycline, etc) 

-You must be off Accutane/Isotretinoin for 1 YEAR prior to waxing

-Do not receive a chemical peel or any injectables 10 days prior to a wax or 3 days after

-Excessive caffeine and/or alcohol consumption 24 hours before a wax increases circulation and can potentially cause bruising

-Smoking, diabetes, pregnancy, birth control, hormone replacement therapy, and blood thinners can all cause skin sensitivity. Check with your doctor if you have any concerns regarding these conditions prior to waxing.

-You should NOT receive waxing if you have a rash, psoriasis, broken skin, severe acne, severe rosacea, cold sores, lupus, AIDS, are receiving chemotherapy or radiation, or taking Accutane. 

AFTER A WAX:

-Avoid tight clothing to prevent irritation and ingrown hairs

-Avoid touching the waxed area

-Avoid hot showers/baths, sauna, steam room, hot yoga, or other forms of intense heat for 24-48 hours

-Soothe the area with aloe vera gel

-Don't exfoliate for 72 hours

-For facial waxing, avoid AHA's/BHA's, retinols, exfoliants, or any other stimulating ingredients for 48 hours. Keep the area gently cleansed and moisturized

-Wear SPF and protective clothing if you will be in the sun
