Pre Waxing Instructions

  • Please shower before service
  • Do not shave; hair should be at least 1/4 inch long
  • For decreased sensitivity, you may wish to consume a potassium rich
    drink or fruit (banana, orange juice) or take a pain reliever (such as ibuprofen).
  • Avoid stimulants, such as caffeine
  • Receive the waxing service a few days in advance if you are preparing for a
    vacation or another special event, as skin may appear pink after waxing
Waxing After-care Tips
24-48 Hours
  • Avoid taking baths (showers are ok!)
  • No tanning beds, saunas, or steam rooms
  • Use a cold compress to soothe the area
  • Sexual activity should be avoided (friction on the skin can cause it to become inflamed)
  • Don’t use products with harsh chemicals, perfumes or dyes
  • Apply only gentle moisturizers
  • Keep hands away from touching freshly waxed skin, as this can encourage irritation or small pimples
  • Avoid using bar soap; it leaves a film on the body that could cause ingrown hairs.
  • Use Aveda’s All Sensitive Composition Oil (Available at Panache Hair & Body Loft)
  • Wear loose cotton undies
  • Exfoliate twice a week and moisturize daily
48+ Hours
  • Exfoliate using a mold resistant material like Ayate (made in Mexico from the fiber of the agave plant) so you don’t introduce bacteria
  • Use an acne medication or AHA lotion
  • Try to gently tweeze out ingrown hairs
What to do if “problems” occur:
Resist the temptation to pick! If ingrown hairs are not remedied with gentle tweezing, the use of regular exfoliation and the correct products, then it is a good idea to come back to see your waxing specialist who should be trained to extract the stubborn hairs. Call your health care provider if symptoms last longer than 2 or 3 days or if the infection spreads. If the area is infected, a doctor may prescribe a topical antibiotic lotion or systemic antibiotic if it is severe.
