Pre and Post-Waxing Care


• Avoid tight pants or panties for the next few days.

• Keep hands away from touching freshly waxed skin, as this can encourage irritation or small pimples.

• No tanning beds, saunas, steam rooms, laser resurfacing, or chemical peels for the next two days; the areas that have been waxed are both sensitive and vulnerable.

• Apply an ingrown hair remover, hydrocortisone cream, or Aloe Vera if necessary after waxing to prevent the potential for ingrown hairs.

• Exfoliate. Two full days later, 48 hours, if there isn’t any redness, use a mild exfoliator. That helps prevent ingrown hairs.

• After your wax, the results can last 3 to 6 weeks, depending on your hair growth rates. In most cases, you will see minimal re-growth during the first two weeks, with a noticeable increase after that. Some areas may grow quicker than others; continued waxing encourages slower, sparse hair re-growth. And the more frequently you wax, the less painful it becomes.


Women: Your skin is often more sensitive to the time near your period, and waxing can be more painful than expected. Your appointment shouldn’t be any closer than a couple of days before or after your period to avoid any discomfort.

• Do exfoliate; gently exfoliate the skin before waxing.

• Do let your hair grow; for waxing, the hair needs to be approximately 1/4 inch long. Please allow about two weeks of hair growth before your visit.

• Do make us aware if using Accutane, Retin-A, Differin, Glycolic Acid, Renova, Salicylic Acid, Avage, Strivectin, Tazorac, Pro-Active, Benzoyl Peroxide, or any other topical or oral medications that can affect the outcome of a waxing treatment.

• Do make us aware if you have experienced difficulties with your waxing treatments in the past.
