Brazilian Waxing Tips

Pre-Hair Removal Tips:

  • If you are currently using Accutain, hair removal on any part of your body is not recommended
  • If you have had a glycolic (an alpha hydroxy acid) or salicylic acid (beta hydroxy acid) peel you must wait 10-14 days before having hair removal
  • If you are using a Retinol or Tretinoin (Aberela, Airol, Renova, Atralin, Retin-A, Retino-A, Avita, Retacnyl, Refissa, ReTrieve or Steava-A) on or near the area to be waxed, you will have to discontinue use 7-10 days before the hair removal. *please consult your physician before discontinuing any prescription medication
  • Avoid scheduling your hair removal the week before your period is due. You are more sensitive during this time
  • Hair should be 1/4″ long. If it is too short the product won’t adhere to the hair and the folicle will not come out smoothly; too long and it is more difficult and can be more painful
  • Exfoliate three times a week with No Bump Body Scrub. Discontinue use 24 hours prior to hair removal
  • Do not tan for at least 24 hours prior to hair removal
  • Avoid alcohol or caffeine the day of your appointment because these can heighten sensitivity
  • Plan on coming to your appointment with something loose to wear. Steer clear of anything that may be too restrictive, tight or binding in the private areas

Post-Hair Removal Tips:

  • Regular waxing will reduce discomfort as well as hair growth
  • Do NOT shave between services. For the best long term results schedule services every 4-6 weeks
  • Apply Finipil Lait 50 to damp skin daily
  • If you experience any soreness or bruising you may use a cool compress on the affected area
  • For Bikini and Brazilian hair removal avoid sexual contact for 12 hours
  • Avoid heavy exercise for at least 24 hours
  • Avoid hot showers/baths, saunas, sun exposure, and lotions for the first 24-48 hours
  • Avoid tight fitting clothes for the first 24 hours
  • Ingrown hairs are common. To reduce ingrown hairs, begin to exfoliate with No Bump Body Scrub 48 hours after service
