FAQ / Waxing

How should I prepare for waxing? 

Exfoliating often the week leading up to your wax appointment will surely prepare your skin. Make sure you drink lots of water, coming to your appointment well hydrated. Taking anvil / panados half an hour prior to your appointment will help ease the pain. 

 

Contraindications

Retin-A / Accutane / Renova - these medications increase the rate at which your skin exfoliates so waxing could potentially left the skin resulting in scabs in the coming days. AVOID all waxing while on Accutane and for a miniumum of 6 months after coming off the medication or consult your dermatologist about when to proceed.
