Post Care

To get the best possible results from your session, please follow the guidelines below

Some slight soreness, small bumps, redness are common and perfectly normal temporary reactions, particularly if it's your first wax. These symptoms should subside over next 24 - 48 hours.

  • Avoid scratching waxed area

  • Moisturise daily

  • Wear loose clothing

  • Avoid perfumed products, lotions, and creams, which can irritate sensitized skin

  • Do not pick or squeeze ingrown hair, let a professional handle it for you

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

  • Avoid excessive activity for 24 hours after waxing. Perspiration can irritate freshly waxed skin

  • Apply a cool compress or take a cool shower to reduce irritation and sensitivity. Avoid hot baths or showers

  • Avoid swimming in chlorinated pools

  • No tanning (sunbathing, sun beds or fake tans)

  • Avoid scratching or touching the treated area with unwashed

Minimize ingrown hairs

 To minimize ingrown hairs, exfoliate the waxed area a few days after your session 2 - 3 times a week using a loofah, exfoliating mitt or scrub
Moisturize the area daily, which will keep your skin supple and encourage new hairs to grow through easily

How to prevent future irritation

  • Routine cleansing and exfoliating is the easiest and most effective way to prevent bumps from forming after you wax.

  • Make sure you use a mild scrub or exfoliating cloth every other day, at a minimum, to prevent the buildup of dead skin cells and other debris.

  • Once you start waxing, it’s important to maintain your appointments. They’re typically spaced four to six weeks apart to align with your hair’s natural growth cycle.

  • If you schedule an appointment outside of this timeline — or use other hair removal techniques between appointments — it disrupts your growth pattern. This increases your risk of irritation and ingrown hairs.

  • If your skin is still irritated as your appointment nears, call your waxing specialist. They can determine whether you should reschedule.

  • You should also check in if you’re on or close to beginning your menstrual cycle. Although your waxing specialist can still perform the service, your skin may be more sensitive than usual during this time.
