Waxing Aftercare Advice
Please follow the guidelines below to ensure that your skin is cared for properly for the next few days.
Please note that the following reactions are quite common after a wax treatment and are perfectly normal temporary reactions. Any symptoms should subside within 24-48 hours.
Preventing ingrown hairs
Ingrown hairs occur when a new hair can’t break through the surface of the skin and curls back into the pore instead, often resulting in a spot. Shaving and waxing can often exacerbate the situation, but there are things that you can do.
Starting a few days after your appointment, gently dry brush the skin 2 or 3 times a week or use a gentle exfoliator. Using an antibacterial body wash will also help. Moisturise the area every day, which will keep the skin supple and help new hairs to break through.
You may notice a small amount of regrowth after a week or so. It can take upto 4 treatments for your hair to get on a growth cycle thats gives best results. Hair needs to be at least 1/2cm long before it can be successfully removed by waxing.
Please do not shave between your appointments.
To maintain your smooth appearence, I would recommend regular waxing every 4-6 weeks.
