Silky smooth body waxing. Sunburn could cause irritation with waxing. Please inform your technician and service provider if you are using any skin thinning products (i.e. Retin A, Accutane, Tetracycline or Glycolic Acid). To eliminate after wax redness, we recommend that clients take an antacid 1-1/2 hours before the wax service. You may experience skin irritation for 2 to 3 days, if your skin is prone to irritation or if it is your first wax. You can speed the process along by exfoliating the areas waxed. The hair growth must be ¼" to ½" long (usually 3-4 weeks of growth). The first wax is liable to not be as smooth as you desire because hair grows at different stages. Only after waxing twice, will the hair begin to come out all together. Tanning, hot baths, saunas or other heat treatments are not recommended before or after the day of waxing.
