How Can I Prepare for My Wax?
Please discuss the use of all topical skin care (Retin A, Renova, Differin, ProActiv, Glycolic/Salicylic/Lactic Acid, Benzoyl Peroxide) items with your waxer before your first wax. Many skin care ingredients increase the rate of cell turnover therefore creating a higher risk of lifting the skin, redness, and potential reaction.
All clients must be off of Accutane for a minimum of 1 year prior to any waxing services. Make sure to discuss any oral medications you are taking as well. Antibiotics, steroids, thyroid medication, chemotherapy treatments, etc. can all affect your waxing experience.
Exfoliate the area to be waxed every other day up to 48 hours prior to the service. Keeping the skin exfoliated and moisturized improves your waxing results. Be clean and free of heavy lotions on the day of your wax.
