Waxing Aftercare Advice

Thank you for choosing us for your waxing service. Please follow the guidelines below to ensure your skin is cared for properly over the next few days.

Please note: some slight soreness, small bumps and redness are common
and perfectly normal temporary reactions, particularly if this is your first
wax. These symptoms should subside over the next 24-48 hours. If you
experience persistent redness or irritation, or if you have any questions,
please do not hesitate to contact us.

Keep the waxed area clean, and avoid heat and friction during the next
24-48 hours. This means:
• No hot baths or showers (cool to lukewarm water only).
• No saunas, hot tubs or steam treatments.
• No tanning (sunbathing, sun beds or fake tans).
• No sport, gym work or other exercise.
• Avoid scratching or touching the treated area with unwashed hands.
• Wear clean, loose fitting clothes.
• Avoid swimming in chlorinated pools.
• Do not apply deodorants, body sprays, powders, lotions or other
products to the area, other than those recommended by your therapist.
• To soothe and protect the skin, apply an antiseptic cream to the waxed
area regularly for 3 days following your treatment. Always wash your
hands before applying any product.

To prevent ingrown hairs: starting a few days after your appointment,
gently scrub the skin 3 times a week in the bath or shower using a loofah
or exfoliating mitt. Also moisturise the area every day, which will keep
the skin supple and help new hairs to grow through normally.
You may notice a small amount of re-growth after a week or so. It can take up to 4 treatments for your hair to get on a growth cycle that gives best results.
Hair needs to be at least 1/2 cm long before it can be successfully removed by
Please do not shave between your appointments.
To maintain your smooth appearance, we recommend regular waxing every 4-6 weeks.
