Before your wax!

  • Grow your hair to the length of a grain of white rice, (if the hair is too short the wax will not grab the hair).

  • Exfoliate 24hrs prior to waxing to expose any ingrown hairs.

  • Let me know if you are taking any medications or using any facial products that contain retinol.

  • Take ibuprofen 30 minuets before appointment (this is recommended for bikini waxes and first time waxers doing large services).

  • Drink lots of water both before your wax and all the time. You are 70% water and should be drinking a minimum of half your body weight in ounces of water a day.

  • Let me know if you have any questions about your skin, on top of being a waxer I am a licensed esthetician.

  • Do not tan 24hrs before your wax it drys you out and makes your skin much more likely to lift. We also cannot wax over a burn.

  • Do not use any retinol on the area for 1-3 weeks prior or take the prescription drug Accutane 6 months prior.

  • Do not drink coffee or alcohol before your appointment.

  • Do not shave for a minimum for 2 weeks prior to waxing appointment (hair should be about the length of a grain of white rice) no need to trim if you are over grown either.

  • Do not do any harsh skin treatments like chemical peals, micro dermabrasion, dermabrasion ect..

 

After your wax!

  • Do not exfoliate 24 hours after waxing, the skin in sensitive and its not necessary. because we just removed all of the dead stuff!

  • Do not work out or sweat vigorously for 24 hours after your wax if possible, this reduces your chance of after wax breakouts and infected ingrown hairs.

  • Do not tan 24-48 hours after your wax, you are more easily burnt.

  • Do not shave in between waxes, it basically makes waxing pointless, thickening the hairs and messing with the growth cycles!

  • Do not do any harsh skin treatments 48 hours after waxing, like chemical peals, micro dermabrasion, dermabrasion ect..

  • Avoid lace underwear and fabrics that irritate the skin. To get 20% off my favorite brand click here!
