Be sure your hair is at least 1/4″ long for best results. Thicker hair should be closer to 1/2″. Seven to ten days of growth after shaving is typically good. Please do NOT go to a tanning bed before or after your appointment as this can cause your skin to lift and become very irritated. Spray tans could be done AFTER your waxing appointment. It is recommended, but not required, to exfoliate the area(s) you are getting waxed within 24 hours prior to your appointment. Taking Ibuprofin (not Aspirin!) and avoiding alcohol and caffeine beforehand may help ease discomfort as well.
Of course pulling hair out of its follicle isn’t going to be comfortable. However, everyone has a different experience. Rest assured, Waxing Spot uses a variety of different waxes suited for different areas of the body, hair type and skin type. And as you can read in the comments from our clients, we offer the least painful waxing experience.
We recommend keeping the area exfoliated to avoid ingrown hairs. You may also want to use a topical cream. We carry Finipil, which is an antiseptic cream that cools and protects the follicle. For best results, both are recommended.
Yes, but please wear a clean, fresh tampon. Please know your skin is more sensitive during this time.
