Waxing Aftercare Advice

*** Waxing Aftercare Advice ***

Please note: Some slight soreness, small bumps and redness are common and perfectly normal temporary reactions, particularly if this is your first waxing. These symptoms should subside over the next 24-48 hours. If you experience persistent redness or irritation, or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me on 07534 225978.

 

Please take a moment to read the aftercare advice below, as it will aid in the reduction of redness or skin irritation after your waxing treatment: 

Avoid heat and friction during the next 24-48 hours. This means:

* No hot baths or showers (cool to lukewarm water only).

* No saunas, hot tubs or steam treatments.

* No tanning (sunbathing, sunbeds or fake tans).

* No sport, gym work or other exercise.

* Avoid scratching or touching the treated area with unwashed hands.

* Wear clean, loose fitting clothes.

 

* Keep the waxed area clean.

* Avoid swimming in chlorinated pools.

* Do not apply deodorants, body sprays, powders, lotions or other products to the area, other than those recommended by Deity Beauty.

* To soothe and protect the skin, apply an antiseptic cream to the waxed area regularly for 3 days following your treatment.

* Always wash your hands before applying any product.

* To prevent ingrown hairs, starting a few days after your appointment, gently scrub the skin 3 times a week in the bath or shower using a loofah or exfoliating mitt.

* Moisturise the area each day; this will keep the skin supple and help new hairs to grow through normally.

 

You may notice a small amount of regrowth after a week or two; it can take up to 4 treatments for your hair growth cycle to change to ensure the best results after a treatment.

Hair needs to be at least 1-2 cm long before it can be successfully removed by waxing; please do not shave between your appointments.

To maintain your smooth appearance, Deity Beauty recommends attending a waxing appointment every 4-6 weeks.
