Waxing Aftercare and Advice


- It is best to leave at least three weeks of re-growth before making your appointment to ensure the hair doesn't break during treatment. This will allow the wax to grip the hair effectively, pulling it from the root, which will ensure a smooth finish.

- Prep the area during the week prior to your appointment by exfoliating the area to be waxed. This will open up the follicle and minimise the chance of ingrown hairs occurring.

- On the day of your waxing appointment do not apply any creams or lotions on the area to be treated

- No spray tans at least a week before your waxing as the wax will remove the tan in that area.


For the next 24-48 hours:

- Keep the waxed area clean, and avoid heat and friction during

- No hot baths or showers (cool to lukewarm water only).

- No saunas, hot tubs or steam treatments.

- No tanning (sunbathing, sunbeds or fake tans).

- No sport, gym work or other exercise.

- Wear clean, loose fitting clothes to avoid friction on the area.

- Avoid swimming in chlorinated pools.

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

- Do not use exfoliating products (AHAs, scrubs, etc) and loofas for at least 24 hours after waxing as they might further irritate your skin.

Please note: some slight soreness, small bumps and redness are common and perfectly normal temporary reactions, particularly if this is your first wax. These symptoms should subside over the next 24-48 hours.

You may notice a small amount of re-growth after a week or so. It can take up to 4 treatments for your hair to fall into a growth cycle that gives the best results. Please do not shave between your appointments, if you would like to maintain your smooth appearance, I recommend regular waxing every 4-6 weeks.
