After Care   


Advice

Thank you for choosing us for your waxing service.

Please follow the guidelines below to ensure your skin

is cared for properly over the next few days. 


Please note: Some slight soreness, small bumps and

redness are common and perfectly normal temporary

reactions, particularly if this is your first wax. These

symptoms should subside over the next 24 – 48 hours.

If you experience persistent redness or irritation, or

you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. 


Keep the waxed area clean, and avoid heat

and friction during the next 24 – 48 hours.


This means:


No hot baths or showers (cool to lukewarm water only)

No saunas, hot tubs or steam treatments

No tanning (sunbathing, sunbeds, or fake tans)

No sport , gym work or other exercise

Avoid scratching or touching the treated area with unwashed hands.

Wear clean, loose fitting clothes.

Avoid swimming in chlorinated pools.

Do not apply deodorants, body sprays, powders, lotions or other products To the area, other than those recommended by your therapist.

To soothe and protect the skin, apply an antiseptic cream to the waxed area Regularly for 3 days following you treatment. Always wash your hands before applying any product.


To prevent ingrown hairs:

Starting a few days after your appointment, gently scrub the skin 3 times a week in the bath or shower using a loofah or exfoliating mitt. Also moisturize the area every day, which will keep the skin supple and help new hairs to grow through normally.


You may notice a small amount of regrowth after a week or so. It can take up to 4 treatments spaced evenly apart for you hair to get on a growth cycle that gives the best results. Hair needs to be at least 1/4-inch to 1/2-inch long before it can be successfully removed by waxing; please do not shave or use chemical depilatories (e.g. Veet) between your appointments. To maintain your smooth appearance, we recommend waxing regularly every 3- 4 weeks.
