Before & After Waxing...

Before

  • If you’re really worried about the pain, and haven’t had waxing  before then take 1 or 2 Tylenols about 30-40 minutes before your  appointment. This can help reduce the surface discomfort. 
  • Make sure your hair is long enough to remove completely from the  roots – it should be at least 1/4 inch long. 
  • 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 wax finish

Immediately After

You may experience a little bit of redness  and a prickly heat type rash to appear. 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. This means: 

  • No sunbathing for at least 12 hours 
  • No swimming in a chlorinated pool for 24 hours – Same for spa baths or saunas 
  • Avoid applying any topical lotions for at least 12 hours (fragrances and other lubricants can cause a burning sensation) 
  • Also avoid touching the waxed area to ensure it remains bacteria free – Use a tea tree oil based product to apply to the area for it’s anti-bacterial qualities.

5 to 10 Days Later

As you skin closes over the follicles, the next consideration is to  ensure you prevent ingrown hairs. 

This is when new, often softer hair  can get trapped under the skin. Here are a few tips to avoid this situation: 


  • Gentle Exfoliation: Use a soft brush or exfoliating glove  to gently buff the area every  2-3 days – this is particularly important after about day 3 through to  about the 10 day mark. You can also use a scrub.
  • The added bonus of following the after care advice (apart from your  skin looking hair-free and smooth for longer), is that it really will  make your next wax a whole lot quicker and less painful.

How Long Will My Wax Last?

If you’re a first-time or occasional waxer you will likely notice  some new hair growth within 2-3 weeks due to the naturally staggered  hair growth cycle. 


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.

Skin Medications and Waxing- A Big No No!
