The hair should be at least 1/4-inch to 1/2-inch long. The hair should be long enough to grab with the wax therefore for best results it is about 3 weeks after shaving.
Many people fear getting waxed but it usually isn’t as bad as it sounds. Hair removal can be painful especially if it is your first time. However it also depends on body areas and tolerance for pain which may varies.
Of course it depends how quickly or slowly your hair grows, however we recommend waxing treatment every 4 to 6 weeks. With regular waxing treatment the hair will longer re-grow. Another reason to wax frequently is that the hairs will come through a lot softer and will out more easily.
First of all keep waxed area clean If you experience irritation or redness try applying a cold compress. You can also use velvety-soft wipes with healing rose oil or calming extracts from cucumber and chamomile.
You should allow at least 24 hours after waxing before going into the sun. During a waxing treatment, the top layer of dead skin can be removed partially and sensitivity of your skin to the sun rays will increase and may lead to sunburn.
Make sure that you do not sunbathe, sauna, steam room or go to the gym for about 24 hours after waxing treatment. Wear looser clothing so that skin can breathe easy and do not scrub. You can gently wash waxed body area with soap and water.
Hair removal treatment at Look Beauty salon works on the hair itself and will not directly affect the skin. Nevertheless, some skin redness can occur but it is very common and typical reaction after a wax treatment. In most of cases skin is slightly pink and some little red spots are possible as well. Especially where the hair was pulled out. All these signs go away overnight.
Yes you can, although you need to know that your skin is more sensitive three days before and after period and then some clients find waxing more painful.
Please do not shave between waxing treatments because it accelerates the hair growth.
Extended Bikini wax treatment takes about 10-12 minutes.
