No touching or scratching of the area for 24-48hrs to keep it clean and bacteria free. No exercise or swimming either.
No sunbathing, sunbeds, fake tan, deodorant or strongly perfumed creams within 24-48hrs to avoid irritation and wear loose fitting clothes.
Avoid saunas, hot tubs, very hot showers or baths (lukewarm is fine) for 24-48hrs as the area may be quite sensitive.
Exfoliate 3 times a week, ideally every week, but for the first couple of weeks at least.
Moisturise every day! Ideally with a soothing antibacterial lotion for the first few days.
And That’s All!
Simple, right? With Waxology, waxing is as easy and simple as you want it to be!
How long will it take for the hair to grow back?
Hair is constantly growing so it depends on your natural growth pattern. Usually it takes around 3-6 weeks. However, not all hairs reappear at the same rate so you may see some regrowth quicker than this. These hairs were growing below the skin at the time of the wax so couldn’t be pulled out. We recommend that after your first wax, you have a second wax quite soon after to get rid of the “inbetweeinie” hairs so that we can try and get all hairs on the same growth cycle.
What can I do to avoid ingrown hairs?
Follow our aftercare advice carefully and exfoliate 3 times a week religiously! And moisturise every day – it may seem like a chore, but it is worth it to keep ingrown hairs at bay. You can also use lotions or treatments that contain tea tree to help reduce the risk of blocked pores.
How frequently will I need to be waxed?
For best results, we recommend a wax every 4-6 weeks. It takes around 4 treatments to get the hairs all on the same growth cycle so regular waxing not only gets less painful each time but also begins to last longer.
Will it hurt?
We challenge you to find out! We don’t believe waxing needs to be really painful if it’s done properly. Yes, it smarts a little, but we have a special technique to help minimise it and can guarantee it won’t hurt half as much as you think. Plus, the results are worth it!
How long does the hair need to be?
For your first wax, the hair needs to be around half a centimetre so no shaving or use of hair removal creams for at least 3 weeks before. Or if it’s longer, don’t worry we can trim it to the length we need. After that, the wax we use can remove hair as short as 1mm so no need to wait for the awkward regrowth.
