Waxing is one of the best ways to temporarily remove unwanted hair. It’s more effective than shaving because with waxing the entire hair shaft is removed, root and all, rather than cutting it off at the surface of the skin like you do when you shave. This leaves your skin super smooth with no stubble.
Hair needs to be 1/4 inch long. If it is too short, the hair will be difficult to remove. If you typically shave please allow 7-10 days between shaving and waxing.
*If you use a topical prescription cream, you can still wax. However, you will want to discontinue use for a week prior to your appointment and several days after.
You will want to avoid sun tanning for 48 hours prior to and after waxing. Waxing recently tanned skin can result in peeling and irritation. If you use a sunless tanner or get an airbrush tan be advised that waxing will remove the tan in those areas.
Since bacteria from your fingers can easily be transferred into your hair follicles, causing breakouts you want to avoid touching the waxed area.
For body waxing, wear loose fitting clothing. Avoid heavy workouts, sun exposure, very hot baths or fragranced lotions for 48 hours.
