Please be sure that the hair has been grown out for a minimum of 3 weeks prior to your first appointment, or grown out to at least 1/4 of an inch. Do not exercise or shower with hot water prior to or directly after your waxing appointment. These activities increase blood flow and make waxing areas more sensitive. Please do not come in for waxing if your skin is sunburned. If you have any skin allergies or are on any Retinoids, Isotretinoin, Differin, or other medications that thin and sensitize the skin, please alert the esthetician before your treatment begins. Feel free to take a pain releiver (such as Advil or Tylenol) 30 minutes prior to your appointment. This will help reduce skin redness and swelling.
