POST WAX CHECKLIST
How long do I have to let my hair grow?
Don't even think about booking an appointment unless you've gone 1-2 weeks without shaving or waxing and have at least ¼ inch of hair. Patience is a virtue – waxing will be painful and not as effective if you haven't waited long enough!
How do I prepare for my waxing service?
We recommend that you exfoliate the area several days prior to your appointment. Thoroughly clean the area keeping the skin moist, but not greasy from heavy lotions or oils.
Does it hurt?
Does James Brown get down? It hurts more the first time than any other time because you are pulling out 100% of the hair, your nerves are on edge, and you don't know what to expect. You will experience a quick, temporary sting that stops hurting right away. By far the worst part for most people is the anticipation, not the actual removal! Follow all the tips we give you and you will be fine. Your second time will be so much EASIER!
Can medication affect waxing?
Yes! You CANNOT be waxed if you are taking any antibiotics, Accutane, Differin, or Retin A. Additionally, any medications that list "sun sensitivity" on the list of symptoms will preclude you from being waxed. You should also avoid waxing while using glycolic acid, harsh exfoliants or any facial peels.
How Often Will You Need Intimate Waxing?
Everyone is different, but 95% of our clients come in every 4-5 weeks. Regular waxing sessions ensure that your hair grows back finer and thinner as the hair follicle has less grip on the hair.
What if I'm on my period?
You can but just know that you are more sensitive about three days before and after your period.
MINIMIZING THE RISK OF REACTION
AFTER AN INTIMATE WAX
Intimate waxing is by far the most effective way to remove hair from your intimate area and give you long lasting results, but many people forget that the aftercare of an intimate wax is just as important. With the right aftercare you can not only minimize the risk of reaction but also keep a nice clean, bump free bikini zone.
Generally clients are more at risk from a reaction if it’s their first time. After years of surface hair removal such as shaving or hair removal creams hair is generally coarser, thicker and more dense so a virgin wax experience is the hardest on the body.
Immediately after your intimate wax focus on keeping your skin cool. It’s best to attend your waxing appointment in loosely fitted clothing and stick to natural, breathable fabrics such as cotton. It’s completely normal for people to experience a little redness in the intimate area following the wax. Don’t worry, this is a temporary reaction and should subside within a few hours. Because the waxing procedure removes hair from the root it’s vital that you keep the area clean and bacteria free.
This means for the 24 hours after your intimate wax:
• Avoid sunbathing or tanning beds. If you are lucky enough to be going on holiday try to book your intimate wax a day or two before you jet off.
• Avoid swimming in chlorinated pools, spa baths or saunas.
• Avoid the use of lotions, perfumes, tanning products, especially fragranced or alcohol based products.
• Ensure to keep the area clean and dry and try not to touch the waxed area.
• Wear loose fitting clothing.
• Avoid any excessive exercise as perspiration can clog the hair follicles.
Another important step for great aftercare is to exfoliate and moisturize your skin between intimate wax appointments. Using a dry brush or gentle exfoliants every other day help to remove built up dead skin cells than can clog the surface of your skin and trap hair. This helps to prevent those pesky ingrown hairs!
