   Waxing Do's and  Don'ts

  • Before any type of waxing-skin should be clean, intact and hydrated. Dry skin, open lesions, and/or scabs can not only wreak havoc when waxing, it can harm the skin. It is important to prep the skin, especially when waxing larger area of the body, such as arms legs or back. Exfoliation is recommended 3-5 days prior to appointment followed by a daily moisturizer. (Avoid moisturizing the day of appointment; some moisturizers prevent wax from adhering to the hair shaft.)
  • Hair to be removed should be between a 1/4 inch to 1 inch long. Recently shaved areas should have 7-10 days' worth of growth.
  • Avoid tanning or excess sun exposure for 48 hours prior to appointment.
  • Discuss topical and oral medications as they can affect your waxing experience.  For example, medications that affect water retention can cause temporary puffiness or reddening.
  • An aspirin can be taken approximately 1 hour prior to service to reduce discomfort. Please Note: High doses of Ibuprofen can cause bruising.
  • Lastly, don't forget to BREATHE! Whether it is your first time or recovering from a bad experience, anxiety causes your body to tense up, heat up and become more sensitive. The anticipation of the service is more often than not worse than the service itself.
