Frequently Asked Questions

What happens during waxing?

Your therapist will make sure the wax is not too hot or too cold.

• Your therapist will liberally apply pre-wax lotion to the area being waxed and then dry it thoroughly. There should be no pre-wax lotion left on your skin when the wax is applied.

• Your therapist will dust your skin with powder. This acts as a buffer, so the wax adheres to your hairs and not to your skin. This means less redness and guards against skin lift. Your therapist may use tweezers to remove some of the hairs missed by the wax. This usually occurs if the hairs are too short or ingrown. Proper consideration needs to be discussed with your therapist as to whether the hairs are long enough for waxing. Strip wax is more efficient than hot wax for shorter hairs.

• Your therapist will look over the waxed area to ensure the removal of any remaining wax. This wax is removed easily by reapplying the wax strip to lift off any remaining wax.

 

• Your therapist will soothe your skin by applying after-wax lotion

What are the do’s and don’ts before waxing?

Do... Grow your leg hair out to between 1/2cm and 1cm long. Exfoliate two days before waxing to remove any dead skin. Don’t do this right before the leg wax, as you’ll run the risk of inflammation.  Make sure your skin is not irritated, inflamed, cut, infected, sunburnt or too dry. Moisturise your legs on the days before but do not apply moisturiser on waxing day, as it interferes with the wax. Wear loose comfortable clothing after waxing to avoid irritation caused by rubbing.

Don’t... Sunbathe or go swimming on the day before waxing. Apply moisturiser on your legs on waxing day. Exfoliate on waxing day as this makes your skin sensitive and could cause inflammation. Exercise one hour before your waxing session.

What are the do’s and don’ts after waxing?

Do...

Expect your skin to be sensitive and a little red. The skin should look evenly red and spotty where the waxing has occurred. Use antibacterial or anti-inflammatory moisturisers and only use warm water when washing. Two days after waxing, lightly exfoliate your legs and use Ingrown Stopper to soften hairs and help prevent ingrown ones.

Don’t...

Use saunas, spas, steam rooms, pools or lie in the sun for 48 hours.

What areas can be threaded?
