DO NOT tweeze in between waxing visits.

You will get a cleaner waxing that lasts longer if all of the hairs are removed at the same time instead of having individual hairs growing in at different times. The hair must steady ¼ inch long (about two weeks’ growth) to be waxed, otherwise the wax will not remove the hair completely.



DO NOT wax over skin irritations

Including but not limited to sunburn, rashes, cuts and abrasions.



DO NOT wax when using certain medications

Including but not limited to Differin, Accutane, Renova, Retin A, Glycolic Acid, and Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids. Let your Esthetician know of any medications you are using. Even if you are applying these medications to areas other than where you are waxing, it is probable that you will experience irritation at the least and skin abrasion at the worst. Sometimes skin is too thin and sensitive for waxing even without using any of these medications.



DO NOT wax on the same day as a self-tanner application or a body scrub.

Scrubs make the skin too sensitive. For tanning, you run the risk of uneven color. Have your waxing done at least one or two days before these services.



DO NOT tan in a tanning booth or sunbathe 24 hours before or after waxing.

If you tan before waxing, there is an increased chance of skin irritation or abrasion, even with no visible sunburn. If you tan after waxing, there is an increased chance of sunburn of that area.



DO wait 48 hours to engage in heavy activities

No heat 48 hours after a waxing service.  This includes but not limited to the following:  gym/sauna/steam/hot tub/beach.  It creates a highway of bacteria into your pores.
