Thanks to tried and tested methods, premium wax and strict hygiene standards, we are sure you will be delighted with your waxing experience. How do you make your wax last and make it a more comfortable experience? We have compiled a list of waxing before and aftercare tips and tricks on how to prepare the waxing area for a more seamless experience, how to care for the area after your wax and how to prevent ingrown hairs.
It is just as important to take care of and prepare the area before a wax as it is to take care of it after a wax. Follow these tips to ensure a quick appointment that is a little less painful.
After your waxing service, you may expect the area to be red, some may experience blood spots due to thicker, courser hair and the area may feel tender and tingle.
For the first 24 hours after a waxing service, avoid the following to prevent irritating the skin:
You need to ensure you prevent ingrown hairs. The skin will close over the follicles and new hair may get trapped causing ingrown hairs. Use Bump eRaiser twice daily for 2 weeks preferably after a hot shower or bath, then once a day until desired results are achieved.
3-10 days after your waxing service,
Gently exfoliate 2-3 times a week with a body scrub. Start this routine 2-3 days after the waxing treatment. It is essential that you perform this routine between days 3-10 after your wax service. Remember to not over exfoliate as this can cause damage to the skin.
Follow your exfoliation with an enriching and nourishing moisturiser. This process will prevent ingrown hairs and ensure that your next wax is easier and a little less painful.
It is important that you plan your waxing treatments. Your maintenance schedule will depend on your hormones, your natural hair growth cycle and other requirements. You will notice that new hair will start to grow back within 2-3 weeks. We suggest follow up appointments 3-4 weeks for facial waxing and 4-6 weeks for body waxing.
