Tips for Before Wax Treatment

These tips will help you to understand what to do and what not to do for before wax especially first time.

Everyone has “First time.” Some new events (This time is waxing) are too intimacy and too private to ask your friends or family. Also if its too new idea, you don’t know what to ask. So here are some tips based on questions my new clients frequently asks me.

Tip 1. Don’t Shave.

First of all, One of the most frequently asked question by First time client is “Should I shave ? I never shaved before or long time.”

My answer is “Do not shave, leave them as  they are and let wax specialist handle them.”

Why?: Because the best hair length is about 0.5 cm or more. You may trim a little bit If you trim too short, you may not get the best result.  Also you might think the longer hair, hearts more especially Brazilian and bikini, but it is not true. I would say it is up to your hair quality. Wax specialist will trim them when it’s needed.

Tip 2. 5 Weeks After Wax and 1 Week Shaving.

Secondly, you may say “I already shaved…or waxed, how long should I wait for next session?’

My answer is “5 weeks after Wax treatment or 2 week after shaving” for the best effect. However if you would like to remove earlier “3 weeks after Wax treatment or 1 week after shaving” will still do the good job.

Tip 3. At Least 3 Days Before Beach Vacation.

Many clients want to do wax before Beach Vacation and ask me how many days wax should be done.

My answer is “3 days before you expose to nice hot sunshine.”

Why?: Because when you are waxed, it removed the your first layer of skin at the same time. So your skin will be a little bit more sensitive than usual and it takes 2 days to recover good enough to be under strong sun! If you expose your skin to sun too soon, you may have some pigmentation on your skin.

Tip4. The First Time is The Worst Time.

Everyone ask me “Does waxing hurt?”.

My answer is simply “Yes” and I add especially first time.

First, since you never had the treatment before, your body doesn’t have any idea how it is pain. So The brain and body can not prepare for coming pain so you feel more. Second, if you have shaved before, your hair get much thicker than it supposed to be. The Thicker hair is more painful. But don’t worry. more you wax, your hair gets thinner and less quantity.

Tip5. Pimples and ingrown hair.

Pimples and ingrown hair is one of the biggest concern.

I believe it is not only because of waxing when it’s properly done. To be honest, waxing might trigger pimples and ingrown hair. But it is really up to your hair & skin condition (sensitive, oily or dry skin locally) also your life style.  For example, some never get pimple without any skin care. On the other hand one gets some because he has thin hair but he keeps his tools around his belt and they rub the skin and get irritated. I have some solution or recommendation up to situation and condition.

Tip6. Next Appointment is in 5 Weeks  .

Once the wax is done you will feel very different and love the result! But when should I come again?

As I wrote before the best time is around 5 weeks for first 3 to 5 times and you can extend it up to 7 weeks as you wish to have the best result!

Tip7.  Just Ask Me.

I tried to explain as much as possible here and i will do till you became comfortable. I understand waxing is very intimacy treatment enough for you to be shy at first time. However we need to trust each other. So please ask me any question you may have.
