Hair should be ¼ inch long.
For most people this is 1½ to 2 weeks worth of growth. If hair is too short, it cannot be waxed. If hair is too long (over ½ inch), use clippers to trim it down to the correct length. We DO NOT trim or clip hair.
Do not come in to get waxed if your skin has a sunburn, rash or any other type of irritation.
Waxing will only irritate the area more and can lead to further problems.
If you are using Accutane, YOU CANNOT WAX.
You must also wait at least 6 months once you have stopped taking Accutane before you can be waxed.
Do not drink caffeine directly before waxing.
If you are using Retin-A or any form of retinol, use any type of glycolic or other “acid” face wash or have had a chemical peel in the last 3 weeks, please let your esthetician know so proper precautions can be made.
Taking an Advil (ibuprofen) 30 to 40 minutes before waxing will help minimize the discomfort and help reduce any redness or swelling following a wax.
Also lightly exfoliating the day of your wax will help you get the best possible results.
It is best not to schedule appointments when on your cycle.
During this time, your skin is more sensitive.
Waxing is very tolerable but there will always be some small discomfort involved.
