Before Waxing

Recommendations prior to waxing:

  1. Less caffeine is better as it stimulates nerve endings
  2. Don’t use body or facial scrubs
  3. Do not use self tanner or spray tanners as they will lift with wax
  4. Do not sit in sun or use a tanning beds
  5. Do not use topical gels that dry out the skin or exfoliates the skin for at least 1 week prior to waxing. Examples: Retinol, Retin-A, Differin Gel, ProActive, Benzoyl Peroxides, etc. (**Please note that there may be skin lifting if these products are not stopped prior to service**)

After Waxing

  1. Please don’t touch area waxed to prevent bacteria from spreading
  2. Exfoliate area on the body lightly when tenderness subsides
  3. Initial irritation from first time waxing can occur- toner, tea tree oil, or aloe vera can help with this
  4. Don’t pick or scrub  any irritation that occurs
