Before Your Appointment
• We advise that you not time your appointment to coincide with your menstrual cycle as it is a period when you are most sensitive;
• Exfoliation should not be done the day prior to, the day of, or the day after treatment as the skin could easily be over-worked resulting in some irritation.
• Please avoid using any oil or moisturizing creams, particularly 1 to 2 days prior to your appointment, as these can inhibit the action of the waxing.
• Let the hair grow before the waxing approximately for 4 weeks, this way is possible to pull all the hair.
It’s important to have some care after waxing, and, exfoliation should be avoided after treatment as this can irritate sensitive skin. Avoid hot tubs and swimming pools for 2 days following treatment. The pores of the skin are more open and there is a greater chance of bacterial infection. Salt water pools and tubs are okay.
Tiny red spots may appear on the skin for a few hours, or even a day or so in some cases. If this should happen, do not be alarmed. This is just an indication that the hairs have been removed from the follicle and it is quite normal after a treatment. They will disappear.
To take away the sting and to reduce redness, apply an ice cold compress two to three times for about 2-3 minutes at a time. Do not use perfumed soap or products with chemical irritants in the treated area within 24 hours of your treatment. The Advanced Sugaring Paste is applied at room temperature making it safe for spider veins and varicose veins since it will not increase blood supply. It will never burn the skin.
To quickly reduce any redness to the area, wrap an ice cube in a wet cloth and apply it to the treated area 5 or 6 times at one hour intervals. You may develop some whiteheads in this area but they seldom appear with subsequent treatments.
If you have been shaving, the first treatment is the worst, due to the fact that the bulb at the base of the hair shaft is enlarged. The more treatments you receive, the weaker the roots get and the easier it is to remove the hair. Due to the way hair grows, it will take a few months to replace the shaven hair with a natural hair growth.
Depending on how dense the hair growth is on each individual, it ranges from 18 months for people with light hair growth to 3 years or more for people with heavy growth. Since the best age to start is at puberty, we encourage you to influence young girls to start using sugar paste instead of shaving.
After your treatment, your skin may sunburn more easily. Avoid exposing your skin to the sun and any infra-red lamp or solarium for a minimum of two days. You should not receive a treatment if your skin is sunburned.
Many people are subject to in-grown hairs due to the hair being out of the follicle for weeks giving the dead skin cells a chance to form over the mouth of the follicle, thus causing the hair to grow under the skin when it reappears. To prevent this from happening you should soak 3 times per week in lukewarm water with a 1/2 cup of Dead Sea salts for 10 minutes. Exfoliate for a few more minutes. Be sure to re-hydrate your skin afterwards with body lotion. Ask your technician for suggestions to suit your personal requirements. The use of Maria’s Body Scrub product on a regular basis will help prevent ingrown hairs from forming.
The best results occur when you establish a routine suitable to your hair growth. Since diminishment of hair growth is a gradual process and is achieved by regular treatments over a period of time, the usual time span between appointments is 4-6 weeks; perhaps a little more often in the summer. It is important to note that due to the changes that may occur in your hormonal balance from time to time, you may have unusually heavy growth perhaps once a year. This is quite normal. Keep in mind that the diminishment of hair growth will occur gradually, despite the occasional heavy growth and this doesn’t mean that the treatment isn’t working or that your hair growth is being stimulated.
