Care in first 48 Hours
Do not use any exfoliating products, especially ones containing acids, since they might further irritate your skin.
Showers are better than bathes. Use only lukewarm water-not hot.
No saunas, steam rooms, whirlpools or other heated sources.
Do not expose treated area to ultra-violet rays indoor or outdoor. For your own protection always wear sunscreen.
Avoid heavy exercise for at least 24 hours.
To avoid ingrown hairs don’t wear tight clothes for the next couple of days.
Resist touching freshly waxed skin, especially on the face, as this may encourage irritation and some breakouts.
Sexual activity should be avoided for at least 24-48 hours.
To avoid ingrown hair exfoliate waxed area (starting after 48 hours since treatment) twice-three times a week to get rid of dead skin layer, so your hair can grow above skin surface.
Also applying ingrown hair solution will help maintain smooth skin (our licensed Estheticians can recommend what’s best for your skin type. If you purchase over the counter products make sure they are paraben free).
Avoid any harsh topical creams (Retinol, Retin-A, Differerin)
Because of different hair growth cycles, sometimes the very first wax may already grow some stubble after a couple of days. It’s not the hair waxed already growing, but it’s another cycle that was still in the skin during waxing. Be patient, it takes 3-4 consistent waxes (recommend every 4 weeks) to get all of the hair on the same growth cycle. It gets better and easier every time you wax especially if you don’t shave in between.
