What can I do about ingrown hair?
We recommend using the relax and Wax Line. Which consists of “Get the Bump Outta Here” is a roll on product designed to calm the skin.
What are the possible side effects of waxing and how can they be minimized?
Although we cannot predict or guarantee who may react, most clients do not experience reactions beyond redness and minor irritation. Hair may break at the root during waxing, causing some hairs to grow out faster. Please follow these guidelines to minimize irritation and possible break outs.
Avoid the sun immediately after waxing and please wear sun screen; recently waxed areas are prone to hyperpigmentation (permanent darkening of the skin) if exposed to the sun.
Avoid heavy exercise for at least 24 hours after waxing.
Avoid saunas, steam rooms, whirlpools and other heated sources for at least 48 hours.
Do not use exfoliating products (AHAs, scrubs, etc) and loofas for at least 24 hours after waxing as they might further irritate your skin.
Avoid tight clothing after waxing, especially in the waxed areas. Tight clothing may result in irritation and ingrown hairs.
Regular exfoliation may be helpful to remove dead skin so your hairs can get out above the surface of the pores and not become ingrown.
Routine waxing helps the skin get accustomed to the procedure and may minimize irritation.
Some people will experience a rash after waxing. It is not a break out and will last under a week. If this happens, apply Polysporin (not Neosporin) at least once a day for 3 days.
An annoying consequence of shaving and waxing — occur when a hair curls into the skin and grows in the wrong direction, resulting in a red, irritated bump that can become infected. To help avoid ingrown hairs, we recommend our Body Polish Kit 24 hours after waxing and every day thereafter. It helps pop the hair out of your skin to keep the skin healthy.
