Waxing Advice & Aftercare

Please let us know prior to treatment if any of the following apply before your treatment. You will be asked to read this when you come for your treatment

• You have any infectious or contagious conditions. 

• You have recently had any cosmetic procedures in the area to be treated

  • You are taking any medication or are using any product (including AHA’S) which may affect skin sensitivity

You have had any beauty treatments performed on the area to be treated in the last week

• If there is anything else which may affect the treatment please discuss this with your therapist.

Possible Side Effects

Skin Grazing – the very top layer of the epidermis may be removed which can make the skin feel sore and weepy – this will dry up after around 36 hours but the skin will look dry and darkened temporarily. Redness and irritation, bruising, pustules (spots) may occur due to a natural reaction of the follicle particularly in men which may last a few days. If you are having waxing for a special occasion or are concerned about the above we suggest that you discuss alternative treatments such as Threading. If you continue with the treatment it will be at your own risk.
