aftercare advice for waxing

Freshly waxed skin needs a little TLC to help prevent adverse reactions to ensure as our customer you receive the best long term result from your treatment.

To get the best results from your wax please follow the guidelines below.

Some slight soreness, small bumps, and redness are common and perfectly normal temporary reactions, especially if this is your first wax. This should settle over the next 24-48 hours, but please get it to touch if you have any questions or concerns.

Keep the waxed area clean and avoid heat and friction during the next 24-48 hours:

  • No hot baths, showers or saunas (cool to lukewarm water only).
  • No tanning (sunbathing, sunbeds or fake tans).
  • No sport, swimming, gym work or other or other vigorous exercises.
  • No scratching or scrubbing the treated area.
  • ┬áNo sexual activity after intimate waxing
  • No deodorants, body sprays, powders or lotions on the waxed area, other than those products recommended by your therapist.
  • Do wear clean, loose-fitting clothes.
  • Do apply an antiseptic cream regularly for the next few days, to soothe and protect the skin. Always wash your hands before applying any product.

To prevent ingrown hairs: A few days after your treatment, gently exfoliate the skin up to 3 times a week using a body mitt, brush or scrub. Moisturize the area every day to keep the skin supple and help new hairs grow through normally.

The first few times you get waxed, you might notice a small amount of regrowth after a week or so. It can take several treatments for your hair to get on a cycle that gives the best results.

Hair needs to be at least 1/2cm long for us to wax, so please don’t shave, tweeze or use hair removal creams between appointments. To maintain your smooth appearance, we recommend regular waxing every 4-6 weeks.
