Some slight soreness, small bumps and redness are quite normal after waxing treatment. This is quite normal and should settle over the next 24-48 hours. If this does not subside, please contact me.
Please keep all waxed areas clean. Avoid heat and friction during the next 24-48 hours and try to adhere to the following:
No hot baths or showers (cool or lukewarm only).
No saunas or hot tubs.
No tanning (Sunbathing, sunbeds or fake tans).
No sport, gym work or any other vigorous exercise.
No swimming in chlorinated pools.
Avoid scratching or touching the treated area with unwashed hands.
Wear clean, loose fitting clothes.
Do not apply any deodorants, body sprays, makeup, perfume or lotions to the area, other than those products advised by you therapist.
To soothe and protect the skin, apply antiseptic cream regulaly for 3 days following treatment. Always wash you hands first.
Use sunblock on exposed areas of skin after waxing.
Using an antibacterial skin wash or adding a handful of dead sea salts to your bath water will help prevent infection over the next few days, and will also assist the healing process should any pimples appear.
Ingrown hairs can help be prevented by gently exfoliating the skin up to 3 times per week using a body mitt, brush or scrub. Moisturise the area every day to keep the skin supple and help new hair grow easily.
You may notice a small amout of regrowth after a week or so. It can take up to 4 treatments equally spaced for your hair to get into a cycle that will give you the best results. Hair needs to be at least 5mm long to be removed successfully by waxing. Please do not shave, tweeze or use hair removal creams between your appointments. For best long-term results, we recommend regular waxing every 4-6 weeks.
