Christine's Waxing Treatment Menu
"WAXING BECAME POPULAR IN THE EARLY SEVENTIES AND HAS BECOME A STAPLE TREND THAT CONTINUES TO GROW WITHIN CULTURES AROUND THE WORLD."
It is a beauty regimen that is not to be embarrassed about, but embraced. I take what I do seriously.
No matter what service, I want to help make you feel like a fresher version of you.
By being consistent with your waxing regimen your hair will grow in slower, finer and sparser. Following the correct Pre and Post tips can ensure smooth results.
Shaving only cuts the hair at skins surface and can make the hair feel coarse.
Skin may even become more irritated with shaving due to hair growing in different directions.
Laser Hair removal is also a popular technique, but results vary with each client.
A little unpredictable and can be pricey depending on how many treatments you will need.
Taking an Ibuprofen or Advil at least 20 minutes Prior to Waxing, may lesson the pain. Please check with your doctor first however, if you think for any reason there may be an contraindication in taking one of these Pain relievers.
The day of your waxing limit the amount of caffeine or alcohol intake. Both can cause sensitivity and redness. If your immune system is down, or you are extremely dehydrated this too may cause a little discomfort during your wax.
Try to schedule your appointment two weeks after your period has ended. Sensitivity can occur during your period due to retaining water. However, if you are on your period, waxing can still definitely can be performed with a tampon in.
No sun exposure for 24hrs. No hot showers, steam rooms, swimming or working out (yes!). Your pores are open at this time so any of these things may cause infection or irritation to be more prone to happen. If there is irritation no need to panic. Take a cool shower, or apply a cool compress to the irritated area. Follow up by heading to your local Pharmacy and pick up a cortisone cream. You can also use Neosporin if the skin feels sensitive to the touch. Aloe vera gel is an excellent choice for a natural topical healer as well.
Exfoliate the area within the first three days after you wax. You can use sea salts, Tea tree oil (make sure its diluted with water), a loofah, exfoliating pads, or even a cleanser that contains Salicylic Acid, 2-3 times a week of exfoliating will help prevent ingrown. However, over exfoliating will cause irritation and dryness. It is highly recommended to cut back on exfoliating and use a frangrance free moisturizer if dryness occurs.
