WAXING AFTERCARE ADVICE
To get the best possible results from your treatment over the next few days, please follow the guidleines below:
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 if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
Keep the waxed area clean, and avoid heat and friction for the next 24-48 hours.
No hot baths or showers (cool to lukewarm only)
No saunas, hot tubs or steam treatments
No tanning (sunbathing, sun beds or fake tan)
No sport, gym or any other exercise
Avoid scratching or touching the treated area with unwashed hands
Avoid sexual contact (intimate treatments only)
Avoid swimming in chlorinated pools
Do not apply deodorants, body sprays, powders, lotions or make up to the waxed area, other than those recommended by me
Wear clean, loose fitting clothes
Apply a lotion or cream to soothe the area and promote healing
Always wash hands before applying any product
Use a sunblock on exposed areas of skin 2-3 days following treatment
To minimise ingrown hairs exfoliate the waxed area a few days after your treatment 2-3 times week using a loofah, exfoliating mitt or scrub. Moisturise the area daily, which keeps the skin supple and encourage new hairs to grow through easily.
You may notice a small amount of re-growth after a week or so. It can take up to 4 treatments for your hair to get on a growth cycle that gives best results. Hair needs to be at least 1/2 cm long before it can be successfully removed by waxing. Please do not shave, tweeze or use hair removal cream between appointments.
To maintain your new smooth appearance, I recommend regular waxing every 4 weeks.
