Waxing Pre-Treatment and Aftercare Advice

Waxing Preparation
To achieve a successful waxing result your hair needs to be at least 1/2cm long. Also, please remember not to shave, cut or trim your body hair before the waxing appointment as we will do this as part of the treatment if necessary.

Waxing Aftercare
It is important to keep the waxed area clean and avoid heat and friction during the 24-48 hours following treatment e.g.

  • Only touch waxed area with clean hands
  • Avoid hot baths and showers (cool or tepid water only
  • Avoid saunas, hot tubs, steam rooms and swimming pool
  • No tanning of any kind
  • Wear clean, loose clothes
  • Avoid using deodrants, body spray, powders and lotionIf needed, regularly apply an antiseptic cream to soothe and protect the area
  • To help prevent infection and assist the healing process use antibacterial skin wash or add Dead Sea Salts to your bathwater

    Ingrown hairs are horrible so to help prevent this wait until a few days after your waxing treatment then exfoliate the area three times a week with a loofah or mitt, moisturising every day to help keep the skin supple and prevent new hairs.
