WAXING PRE AND POST CARE

PRE- WAXING:  (preparing for your waxing appointment)

Please read the following considerations:

It is important to avoid the sun for three days before or after a waxing session. 

Waxing will not be performed if you have been taking Accutane within the past eight months.

Waxing will not be performed on areas with skin irritations, open sores, or cold sores.

We recommend waiting to wax your face for at least two weeks after receiving a chemical peel or a Microdermabrasion treatment. 

We recommend avoid waxing for one week before and after the use of Retin A, all retinol products, mild glycolic acids, alpha hydroxy acids(AHA fruit acids), and beta acids. For prescription strength or stronger formulations, discontinue for 2 weeks prior to waxing area.

Please inform the Esthetician of any medical conditions or of any medications you are currently taking.

We recommend that women avoid scheduling waxing sessions three days before, during, and three days after your menstrual cycle, as your skin will be more sensitive. 

Before and after Bikini and Brazilian waxing, keep area clean and dry to prevent infections and skin irritation.

If you have been shaving regularly, please allow at least two weeks of hair growth in order for us to properly wax the desired area.

We recommend allowing three to six weeks between each waxing session. 

Use an exfoliating scrub and/or loofa prior to your waxing session to prevent ingrown hairs and to help with removal of hair during a waxing procedure. 

It is important to keep your skin moisturized prior to waxing, as dry skin can easily become sensitive and irritated and create ingrown hairs. Apply moisturizer at least 4 hours before your scheduled waxing to ensure no residue is left on the skin and that the skin is not too moist prior to a waxing service.

Please refrain from applying any creams, oils or self-tanners immediately prior to a waxing session.

 WAXING POST CARE:

It is normal to experience redness, bumps,slight skin removal, bleeding in the hair follicle, and some tenderness, especially for first time waxing and for those with coarser hair or sensitive skin.

Symptoms should dissipate within 24 to 48 hours after waxing. 

We recommend aloe vera to calm, Tend Skin®, or other salicylic acid based products to prevent ingrown hair and to calm irritation.

Five days after your waxing session, we recommend exfoliating with a scrub and/or a loofa a couple times a week to prevent skin cell debris buildup, which can trap surface hair and cause follicular bumps and ingrown hair.

It is important to moisturize your skin if you are using exfoliating or salicylic acid-based products. These products can dry the skin overtime, which could cause more ingrown hairs

Refrain from the following immediately after waxing and until redness and irritations subside:

Swimming Pools, Saunas, Jacuzzis, Steam rooms

Tanning Beds, Spray tans

Avoid Sun

Avoid tight fitting apparel

Excessive work outs that cause you to sweat.

Hot yoga

Massage or Body treatments to the areas waxed

CHEMICAL PEEL AND MICRODERMABRASION POST CARE

Your skin may be red immediately following a treatment (this will dissipate within 24 to 48 hours). 

It is important to keep your skin calm and cool immediately following a treatment.

A cool compress can be used to alleviate redness or discomfort.

We recommend avoiding heat and hot water until your skin has calmed and all redness has dissipated.

Makeup is not recommended until skin redness subsides.

It is important to avoid sun exposure after a treatment to prevent hyper-pigmentation and sun damage.  We recommend wearing an SPF 30 or higher sunscreen at all times following your treatment. 

We recommend using a gentle cleanser and a moisturizer for one week following your treatment (avoid any exfoliating or stimulating products). 

The use of any products containing Retinols, Retin A, Glycolic or AHA/ BHAs or Fruit acids are not recommended for one to two weeks following your appointment.

It is important to use appropriate skincare products after a Peel or Microdermabrasion treatment. We will recommend skincare products based on your skin type and individual skincare goals.

Immediately after an IPL treatment do not exercise or do any activities that cause exertion, sweating, or heat for a day.

Any freckles or brown spots will appear darker immediately following an IPL treatment (these will flake off normally within three to five days, leaving the area lighter). 

Avoid alcohol before and after an IPL treatment as this will dehydrate the skin and make it more sensitive.
