We have included the most common short term side effects people experience after waxing to put your mind at ease, if you are experiencing any side effects. If you have any concerns or questions after having your waxing treatment with us, please get in touch!
What you should/shouldn't do after having a waxing treatment:
Keep the waxed area clean.
Avoid scratching or rubbing the waxed area.
Avoid touching the waxed area with unwashed hands.
Do not apply any make up on the area for 24-48 hours.
Do not apply deodorants, body sprays, powders or lotions to the waxed area.
Only use products recommended by your therapist on the waxed area after your treatment.
Avoid any sports, gym workouts or other exercise for the rest of the day (to avoid sweating).
Avoid saunas, hot tubs, or steam treatments.
Do not have a hot baths or showers for the rest of the day (cool to lukewarm water only).
Avoid tanning (sunbathing, sun beds or fake tans) for up to 72 hours after your waxing.
Avoid having any other treatment on the waxed area for up to 72 hours.
Avoid swimming pools for 24-48 hours.
Book in for regular treatments (every 4-6 weeks).
Common sides effects after waxing:
Redness or red spots.
All of these side effects are common and perfectly normal reactions after waxing. These symptoms should subside over the next 24 - 48 hours. If this is your first wax or it has been a long time between sessions, it is more likely you will experience the above side effects. If you experience persistent redness or irritation, or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
You may notice a small amount of re growth after a week or so, this is because not all your hairs grow at the same time. It can take up to 4 treatments for your hairs to get on a growth cycle that gives the best results. Having regular waxing treatments will give you the best results. You will need at least 3-4 weeks growth of hair before it can be successfully removed by waxing (around 6mm).
