After your wax treatmnts the following guidlines should be followed.
Please note that the following reactions are quite common after a wax treatment and are perfectly normal temporary reactions. Any symptoms should subside within 24-48 hour
Small bumps and redness.
If you experience persistant sorness and redness please do not hesitate to contact me.
Keep the waxed area clean, and avoid heat and friction during the next 24 to 48 hours.
Avoid extreme heat for 24 hrs. This includes very hot baths/showers, steam rooms, saunas and Jacuzzi’s as this aggravates the skin as the pores are still open. You could also pick up an infection from public places.
No massage for 24 hours
Exposure to UV light, including sun beds and sunbathing, must be avoided for 24 hours following treatment, as burning can occur.
No fake tan for 24 hours
Avoid swimming in chlorinated pools
Deodorant or anything perfumed should not be applied to the area that has been waxed for 24-48 hours as this could make the area very sore.
For women make-up should be avoided following facial hair removal for that day although true mineral make up is fine.
Tight clothing should be avoided following any waxing treatment for 24-48 hours as this can aggravate the area that’s been waxed.
Waxing removes dead skin so the skin may be a little lighter immediately following treatment but colour will return to normal within a few hours.
Dry brush the area that has been waxed a couple of times a week. Get a brush that you would scrub your back with made from wood and bristle. Just before you step into the bath or shower, take the dry brush and brush your skin whilst it’s dry. Do not do this till at least 48 hours after waxing.
After the first 24 hours keep the skin moisturised
A heat reaction may be seen on the skin for several hours following treatment and this is quite normal. This will vary from a mild redness to a much stronger skin reaction and some people have red dots on the waxed area for several hours.
If any spots or rashes persist for more than a week, or become infected, Please consult your GP.
If the aftercare advice given is followed the skin will return to normal within 24 hours. If the reaction is still present after this time or worsens, it may be that you have had an allergic reaction to the wax, and you should seek medical advice from your GP.
