Day of Waxing Appointment
Take a warm bath to hydrate the skin.
During the day of your appointment, soak your skin in a warm bath to hydrate your skin. Dry skin is painful to wax because the hairs are harder to remove. If you don't have time for a full bath, soak the skin you plan to wax in water for five to ten minutes.
Drink plenty of water before your appointment to reduce rash development after waxing.
Put moisturizer on.
Use our water-based, oil-free moisturizer (RenewU Hydrating Cell Renewal Moisturizer) after you've soaked your skin. Our moisturizer will prevent your skin from burning during the wax. Be sure to use our moisturizer (RenewU Hydrating Cell Renewal Moisturizer) several days before your appointment and the day of, for best results.
Do not use an oil lubricant (like coconut oil) before you wax, as this will prevent the wax from grabbing any hairs.
You can use our soothing cream (No-Trauma Momma!) after your appointment to help alleviate "trauma" to the skin associated with waxing and aid in healing the skin of irritation and inflammation while also increasing moisturization to treat dry or damaged skin.
Cover any moles or lesions.
Moles, skin tags, or lesions could rip off during a waxing appointment (which can increase the likelihood of cancer). Cover them up with a band-aid so you remember to tell your esthetician before your appointment.
Remember ... if you have any kind of cold sore(s)/canker sore(s)/fever blister(s)/herpes breakout --- treatment will NOT be performed.
FOR ANY TYPE OF SKIN TREATMENT - these breakouts must be completely healed and cannot be at all visible on your skin.
Try taking a pain relief pill.
If you're sensitive to pain, take an ibuprofen-based pill before your appointment to reduce pain and inflammation. Take the pain relief pill approximately 1/2-hour before your appointment so it kicks in when you need it and lasts throughout the appointment.
If you have sensitivities (redness), take two antacids (TUMS®) 15-min to 1/2-hour prior to your treatment. The magnesium in the antacid will help control the histamines in the body.
You can use our numbing cream (No Scream Cream) to help ease waxing discomfort by approx 70%.
Wear loose, comfortable clothing to the appointment.
Don't wear skinny jeans or tight fabrics to your appointment. After your skin has been waxed, you'll want soft and comfortable clothing. Wear soft, loose clothing to avoid irritating your skin after the appointment.
Don't wear new clothes to your appointment. You'll want clothes you are familiar with and know you love.
