Waxing And Facials
Skip any strong at-home facial treatments the week before your appointment. You should avoid gentle exfoliation for a few days before.
Do not tan or burn near your appointment! You can avoid this by applying sunscreen daily and reapplying every 2 hours.
Bring in a list of the skin care products you use at home. In addition to your daily skin care products, make sure to bring a list of your medications, medical conditions and past skin conditions.
Don’t wax your skin for 24-48 hours before your spa facial. Waxing too soon beforehand could lead to irritation and a stinging sensation.
Be prepared to discuss your top skin concerns and your goals for your skin.
Lastly, relax! A facial is meant to be relaxing, so don’t stress about how to prepare for a facial.
The key to keeping your new glow is consistency! Taking care of your skin at-home helps you maintain healthy skin.
Follow the at-home recommendation provided after your appointment. These directions are based on your skin concerns and skin type.
Wear broad spectrum SPF. You want to protect your skin at any cost. By applying a good sunscreen you’ll avoid sun damage and reversing any positive effects of the facial.
Skip the gym. You should avoid a workout after a facial for 24 hours, because you might over stimulate the skin due to sweating and increased circulation.
Wait to exfoliate..give your skin 48 hours from exfoliation after a facials. Your skin has experienced a professional level of skin products and you don’t want to over exfoliate.
Always be gentle to your skin. Avoid any makeup or ingredients that would clog pores or lead to breakouts.
Gently exfoliate 24 hours before your appointment. This removes dead skin and provides a cleaner wax. (Note: Aggressively exfoliating will compromise your wax experience and damage the skin.)
Hair growth should be the size of a grain of rice. If you are shaving allow your hair to grow at least 3 weeks before booking.
Please bath or freshen up before a Brazilian, Bikini, or body wax treatment. If it's that time of the month no worries, wear a tampon.
Stay away from self-tanners, body sprays, and deodorants before your appointment.
Avoid heat...no hot tubs or saunas before your appointment.
Be as comfortable as possible! Wear loose clothing to avoid irrational after your appointment.
Relax...I understand the anticipation can be high. You're going to do amazing! There's nothing to be afraid of you're in great hands. I recommend brewing a tea (caffeine free) before your appointment, the warmth will relax your nerves.
To ensure you have the best results it is highly recommended you read and follow the guidelines. Everyone reacts differently to waxing so it is vital you follow every precaution listed. Heightened sensitivity and/or small bumps may occur in the area for 24-48 hours after the appointment. If your skin is sensitive waxing may result in small breakouts or rashes. Waxing removes the complete hair follicle therefore the pores are enlarged and open to avoid infection you MUST maintain a post-care regimen.
Exfoliate at least once a week to avoid developing ingrown hairs. This tip is essential because it helps the hair follicle to grow in finer/thinner and removes dead skin.
No tanning, sun bathing, saunas, or any heat to avoid bacteria entering the pores.
Refrain from exercising for at least 24 hours following your appointment.
No sex for at least 24-48 areas to avoid bacteria from entering the pores.
If you are experiencing sensitivity after the treatment apply a cold compress to soothe the skin. Hydrocrotisone cream helps reduce redness and inflammation.
Most importantly do not shave in between wax appointment this will disrupt the hair growth of the follicle and may result into ingrown hair and inflammation.
