These are only some of the products that we are aware of that may cause problems. New ones come out every day! If you have any doubt, don’t use it or don’t wax. However, if you still desire to use your skin products that are not conducive to waxing, we may use an extremely hypoallergenic hard wax that is great for sensitive and chemically treated skin. When you call for your appointment, please let us know
Please make sure you do not touch the area waxed for 24 hours. Bacteria on your fingers will get into your delicate open pores and cause pimples. If you do touch your waxed skin, just rinse it off with cold water or apply toner if you have some.
Start exfoliating as soon as it is comfortable to do so or when tenderness subsides. This is the most important thing you can do and you may exfoliate your skin one of two ways: chemically or manually what drives a company to do what it does.
You may purchase our Ingrown Hair Serum. GET WAXXED Ingrown Hair Serum is a synergistic blend of lactic, glycolic and salicylic acids in a moisturizing base of green tea, aloe Vera and chamomile extracts. The Fruit Acid Complex contains 5 naturally occurring AHAs in the form of bilberry, sugar cane, sugar maple, orange and lemon. This product will leave skin feeling soft, smooth and deeply moisturized. We recommend using Alpha Beta X immediately after cleansing and toning the skin every night, followed with Treatment Serum(s).
You may simply use a warm, damp washcloth or exfoliating gloves. The gloves are recommended because they can be washed, dried & sanitized. Loofahs can harbor bacteria or mold, and are not sufficient exfoliators. If you choose a washcloth, just dampen your cloth with warm water and scrub the area that is waxed the opposite way of the hair growth(hair usually grows down, so scrub in an upward motion). This will reduce the chance of ingrown hairs, bumps, pimples and rough-feeling skin. If you have been waxed for the first time, a few bumps and/or pimples are common. If you broke out everywhere there can be a few reasons for this, but the most common is that your hair follicles have been irritated by sweat and/or bacteria. Your follicles are not used to having the hair pulled out so they are easy to irritate. Sweat, which contains urea and salt, is considered irritating to your hair follicles, so it is easy for your follicles to be extra sensitive to any type of sweat or bacteria the first time around. Your second and third waxing should be less irritating. If bumps or pimples have appeared, aquaphor, tea tree oil, or our custom GET WAXXED Ingrown Hair serum are topical agents that can help clear these up in a few days. You also may just take a dry wash cloth and scrub the pimples or bumps and leave them to dry out, no lotion is needed.
