HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR WAX

Maximize your results

*Stop shaving 2-3 weeks prior to your waxing service to allow enough hair growth.

 

* Hair being waxed should be1/4 of an inch long (about the length of a grain of rice.) Hair that's too long is easier to contend with than hair that's too short.

* Exfoliate & moisturize 24 hours prior to your waxing appointment, but not on the same day.
 

* Take ibuprofen (Advil) 45- 60 minutes prior to your waxing service to help reduce discomfort and inflammation.
 

* Avoid direct sun exposure 24 hours prior to and after your wax.
 

* While you can get waxed during your menstrual cycle, waxing within 5 days of your cycle may increase sensitivity and discomfort. Please note that the use of a cup or tampon is required during intimate waxing services to help keep things sanitary and less messy.

*  Avoid heavy workouts for 24 hours after your wax as the follicles are open, thereby increasing the chance of bacterial introduction, which causes unsightly rash and bumps.
 

* Wear loose, comfortable clothing and cotton underwear.

 

* Wax at least 3 days prior to wearing a swimsuit or an event.
 

* Be aware that you do remove your underwear for intimate waxing services to ensure the removal of all unwanted hair.
 

* Waxing consistently every 4 weeks improves the ease of hair removal, decreases overall pain, and decreases the chance of ingrown hairs in the future.
