Waxing

oviedo winter springs eyebrow waxMany areas of the body may be waxed: eyebrows, forehead, lip area, cheeks, chin, back, upper/lower leg, underarms, forearms, bikini line — even hair on the knuckles of fingers and toes.

It is important to choose an experienced esthetician at a reputable establishment for your hair removal needs. These are some of your most delicate areas and it’s your face you show the world everyday! Why would you trust your skin to just anyone?
Waxing is definitely our expertise. Our goal is to make every client happy not only with their service, but with their experience as well. Our esthetician takes the time with you to ensure you have the best waxing experience possible.

To make the waxing process easier, we recommend any unwanted body hair to be waxed should be at least 1/4″ long. You will want to refrain from extended sun exposure 48 hours prior to waxing. You should lightly exfoliate your skin several days before waxing. On the day of your waxing services, you will want to make sure you thoroughly cleanse the area being waxed and that the skin is moist but not greasy from oils or lotions. For an underarm wax, please wash off any deodorant or anti-perspirant prior to your service (because it stops the wax from adhering properly). Women should avoid waxing during the three days prior to and during their periods – the skin is most sensitive during this time. Before you begin the treatment, there are a few things you should tell our therapists: if you:

  • Are diabetic
  • Bruise easily
  • Have varicose veins
  • Are sunburned
  • Have a thyroid condition
  • Are menstruating
Using products/medications that are contraindicated for waxing: Accutane, Retine-A, glycolic acid, alpha hydroxy acid, Tazorac Avage, Differin, Strivectin, Renova, Proactive, Avita, benzoyl peroxide & salicylic acid. These are only some of the products we are aware of that may cause a problem and new ones can come along daily. Your skin is important to you and us – so please check with your doctor if you have any doubts.

After waxing, avoid tanning and extended sun exposure for 48 hours. You will want to avoid hot showers or baths, sauna and steam room use immediately following the service. Scented lotions, perfumes, or colognes should be avoided for 48 hours. Don’t allow direct heat on the skin for at least 24hrs after waxing: sunbathing, solarium, hot shower, sauna or steam room use. This can traumatize & burn new skin, as the dead skin layer has been removed with the hairs during waxing.

We also want the pores to close, not open. Use a tea-tree based moisturizer on the waxed area – it is a natural antiseptic and will help reduce the likelihood of getting ingrown hairs & small pimples (follictilitus).

Exfoliate with a strong mitten, cloth or glove, but only when the skin has calmed down after waxing and the new growth begins to penetrate. This could take from 4 to 7 days. Try to wear cotton underwear and clothing to allow the area to breathe. Don’t use deodorant, perfumes or alcohol-based products for at least 24 hours after waxing. It is recommended to use sun protection lotion for the 1st day after the waxing, to avoid hyper-pigmentation.

Based on your skin, your esthetician will recommend a post-waxing home-care regimen and products to calm and soothe your skin.
