Some slight soreness, small bumps and redness are common and perfectly normal temporary reactions particularly if this is you first wax. These symptoms should subside over the next 24 – 48 hours. If you experience persistent redness or irritation please do not hesitate to contact us.
Keep the area clean, and avoid heat and friction during the next 24 – 48 hours.
This means –
No hot baths or showers
No Saunas or hot tubs
No Tanning (sunbathing, sun beds & fake tans)
No Sport, gym work or other vigorous exercise
No swimming in chlorinated pools
No sexual activity
Avoid scratching or touching the treated area
Take particular care with cleanliness after using the toilet
Wear clean, loose fitting clothes
Do not apply deodorants, body sprays, powders or lotions

To prevent ingrown hairs –
Starting a few days after your appointment gently exfoliate the skin up to 3 x a week using a loofah, body mitt or exfoliating scrub. Moisturise the area every day to keep the skin supple and help new hairs to grow through normally.
You may notice a small amount of regrowth after a week or so. It may take up to 4 treatments spaced evenly apart for your hair to get on a growth cycle that gives best results. Hair needs to be at least 0.5mm long before it can be successfully removed by your waxing so please do not shave, tweeze or use hair removal creams between appointments.
For best results we recommend waxing every 4 – 6 weeks.
