Waxing Care Tips to Live By...
Waxing is an intimate experience, but one that is gratifying to many. We want your body waxing experience to not only be the absolute best, but for you to achieve results. It is recommended that you come in every 4-6 weeks. Doing this will allow your skin to acclimate to your body waxing, slow your hair growth, and maintain better results between treatments.
Personal hygiene rules! Please bathe and/or freshen up before your Brazilian, bikini or body wax treatment.
Skip the lotions and potions! Do not apply self-tanners, body sprays, deodorants and other topical creams before your appointment.
Let it grow out! If you have been shaving, allow a minimum of 2 weeks or ¼ inch of hair growth.
Schedule your wax 2-3 days before the beach and poolside jaunts if you plan to sunbathe.
Avoid heat. No tanning beds, hot tubs, and saunas before your appointment.
Exfoliate! Exfoliating the area gently 24 hours before your appointment will remove the dead skin cells and allow for a cleaner wax.
Be comfy. Wear loose comfortable clothing to prevent irritation after waxing.
At SPAGO, all instruments are sanitized and we enforce a strict “no double dipping” policy, meaning that we never dip the same applicator in the vat of wax once it has been used.
Everyone reacts differently to waxing. If this is your first time, it is important to take precaution.
Heightened sensitivity may be experienced in the area waxed for the next 24-48 hours.
Avoid heat. No tanning, sunbathing, hot tubs or saunas for 48 hours after your treatment. Since a layer of dead skin cells has been removed, sun and or heat exposure can burn the skin.
No hot baths or exercising for 2 hours following your treatment.
Apply a cold compress to soothe the skin if you experience sensitivity or irritation after your treatment. Hydrocortisone cream also reduces the redness and irritation following your treatment.
Exfoliate daily 48 hours after your treatment. We offer a nice selection of exfoliating products to help you maintain your wax and eliminate ingrown hairs. If your skin is sensitive, body waxing may result in minor breakouts.
Waxing causes the temporary enlargement of the hair follicles that can allow bacteria residing on the skin, to enter the enlarged follicles and cause skin infections. If an infection is noted, it should be evaluated and treated by a doctor as soon as possible. That is why it is important to take proper care of your skin following a wax treatment.
