If you are afraid of pain, and haven’t had waxing before, you may take 1 or 2 paracetamol about 30-40 minutes before your appointment. This can help reduce discomfort.
Make sure your hair is long enough to remove completely from the roots. it should be at least 0.5 centimetres. If you’ve shaved the area within the last few weeks it might take a couple of waxes to get your hair into a cycle of growth that allows the most effective results.
Contra-indications that PREVENT waxing:
Contagious skin condition – wait for the condition to clear before waxing,
Thin or fragile skin – can cause bruising and tearing of the skin which may lead to infection,
Use of steroid medication (this can cause a thinning of the skin. Waxing should not be done whilst using such medication, and not until 3 months after completing the treatment),
Unidentified lumps or swelling,
Previous allergic reaction to treatment.
Wax should not be applied directly over raised moles, skin tags, abrasions, bites, broken skin, bruises and varicose veins
You may experience a little bit of redness and a heat rash. This should disappear after a few hours and is normally due to a histamine reaction. Because waxing removes the hair at the root, it’s important that you keep the area clean and bacteria free:
No sunbathing for at least 12 hours
No swimming in a chlorinated pool for 24 hours
No spa baths or saunas
Avoid applying any topical lotions for at least 12 hours (fragrances and other lubricants can cause a burning sensation)
Avoid touching the waxed area to ensure it remains bacteria free
Use pure Aloe Vera gel to sooth your skin and/or tea tree based natural lotion for its antibacterial properties.
It’s important to prevent ingrown hairs. This is when new, softer hair can get trapped under the skin. Use a soft brush or exfoliating glove to gently buff the area every 2-3 days.
You may be happy to know that your next wax will be a lot quicker and less painful! Regular waxing will leave the area hair free for 3 – 6 weeks. Over time the density of hair in the waxed area may start to decrease as well.
