DO:

  • Cancel or re-schedule by phone 867-445-4418 or email jilli_peterson@yahoo.com a minimum of 24 hours in advance of your appointment. This will allow us to accommodate clients on our waiting list. Last minute cancellations will be charged half the service cost of the appointment. No-shows will be charged the full cost of the appointment.

 

  • Exfoliate and Moisturize waxed areas on a daily basis. Wait 24 hours after your service if your skin is feeling sensitive. I personally recommend using exfoliating gloves dry alone or wet with soap or shower gel. We offer products to combat ingrown hairs if this is a problem. I can recommend products for your skin type during your appointment. 

 

  • ​Keep the waxed areas away from constant friction. Rubbing of tight clothing and underwear can aggravate the skin creating irritation and resulting in ingrown hairs.Using lubricant during heavy make out sessions immediately after treatment to prevent further irritation. The area may be slightly inflamed for 2-24 hours afterwards, so skin on skin friction is best when postponed for the day. If necessary, lubricant provides a barrier and extra sensitivity is made more comfortable.

 

  • Drink lots of water to help keep your body hydrated. It will also help to dilute urine which can cause discomfort to on newly sugared/waxed skin, especially if you are sensitive.

 

  • Shower immediately after exercise to keep follicles clear and bacteria free (or use a babywipe in a pinch).However, I do not recommend heavy excercise within 24 hours of waxing to reduce rubbing, chafing and further irritation.

 

  • Apply a cold compress to the area if you find your skin is heat sensitive after treatment. Circulation is increased when  sugaring/waxing due to your body’s natural response to heal itself. Cooling will help to constrict blood vessels and relieve discomfort.

 

  • Book your appointments 3-6 weeks apart depending on hair growth and personal preferences. The hair grows in multiple cycles so in order to get ideal results we need to weaken each stage by removing new growth as it comes through. With consistent appointments, each cycle will stay in its softest stage. If you wait longer than 6 weeks the hair grows strong and bulbus again.

Don't:

  • Don’t cancel if you get your period. We have fresh wipes and tampons on site if you want to freshen up for this reason. If you’re comfortable being sugared at this time, we don't mind a bit.

 

  • Don’t ,Don't, Don't pick at ingrown hairs!!(did we mention don't) We know that you think you can get that hair out if you just squeeze. The truth is you are only going to make the problem worse and  spread the bacteria found in the infected follicle. Squeezing combined with inflammation weakens and the pore lining and can rupture the follicle. It can also  cause greater inflammation, infection in the surrounding pores, and slow the healing process resulting in scarring. When you book your appointment, mention ingrown concerns we will allow extra time for extractions. We are the pros, so leave it to us and we can extract those nasty ingrowns safely and easily (and with sterile tweezers) with no damage to your skin.

 

  • Don’t engage in excessive activity immediately after appointment (exercise, bike rides, hot tubs, etc). Uric acid and salt in your perspiration can be mildly irritating to the area and friction could cause an uncomfortable chafing on the  tender area possibly resulting in prolonged redness and breakout.

 

  • Don’t apply lotions, gels or creams or ingrown hair treatments  to the area treated for 24 hours. There may be increased sensitivity and irritation. 

 

  • Don’t sunbathe (indoor or outdoor tanning) 24 hours before or after treatment. This  dehydrates the skin prior to treatment and causing skin to lift. 

  • Don’t shave between treatments. The goal of regularly scheduled hair removal is to remove the root of the hair so it grows back softer, finer, and fewer in number. Shaving  upsets appointment times allowing the root to grow strong and making waxing more painful.
