Before & After Care

BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT...

  • RELAX!  We are licensed skin care professionals and we specialize in this type of hair removal.

  • Allow your hair to grow 1/8 (if sugaring) to 1/4 (if waxing) of an inch. The sugar/wax needs something to hold onto.

  • Gently exfoliate up until the day before your appointment.  This helps prepare the skin for hair removal. 

  • Shower the day of your appointment to help prevent infection.

  • Inform your esthetician of any changes to your skin care routine that may affect your service.

  • Do NOT apply any makeup, creams, deodorants, oils, or lotions beforehand; you’ll get better results if your skin is clean and dry.

  • Some clients prefer to take an ibuprofen or use a numbing cream (Numb It by PFB) 30 minutes prior to their appointment.  It can help minimize pain felt during your service.

 

AFTER YOUR APPOINTMENT...

  • Once home, walk directly into your bathroom and THROW AWAY YOUR RAZOR!  You'll achieve better results if you avoid shaving between your appointments.

  • Schedule your next service 4-6 weeks out from today's service.  Routine sugaring/waxing helps the skin get accustomed to the procedure, minimizes irritation, and decreases hair re-growth.

  • Avoid the following activities to prevent additional irritation:

    • Using moisturizers, makeup, gels, deodorant and perfumes for at least 12 hours

    • Touching the serviced area with unclean hands for at least 12 hours

    • Exposing the serviced area to direct sunlight or tanning beds for at least 24-48 hours

    • Exercising for at least 12 hours

    • Using saunas, steam rooms, whirlpools and other heated sources for at least 48 hours

    • Wearing tight clothing for at least 24 hours

  • Begin an exfoliation routine 24 hours after your service.  I recommend an all-natural and coarse sugar scrub, like my Signature Pink Sugar Scrub; use in the shower 2-3 times per week.

  • For persistent issues with ingrown hair, I recommend using a serum like Vanish PFB with Chromabright.  Use daily to minimize the occurrence of ingrown hairs and to decrease discoloration caused by ingrown hair scars.
