If you desire smooth skin but don’t like shaving or aren’t sure about laser removal, then consider waxing treatments. When you arrive at the office, your skin is prepared before the wax is placed on the area that is to be treated. Small areas of your skin are waxed at a time so that you’re a bit more comfortable with the procedure and to ensure that there won’t be a reaction to the products that are used. There are a few details that you want to keep in mind about waxing that can help with everything from timing to how you can prepare your skin at home before your appointment.
Once you begin waxing treatments, it’s usually best to stick with this kind of treatment instead of going to another one, such as laser removal. If you decide to use another method of achieving smoother skin, then you should wait for a few weeks between treatments in order for your skin to rest and for the follicles to develop. Exfoliate your skin the night before your appointment. This process will remove the dead skin cells that are present, making it easier to remove the hair during the waxing process instead of only removing a lot of the dead skin on the surface. A loofah is usually the best product to use when exfoliating as this can gently smooth away the dead skin without leaving a lot of irritation behind.
Before you arrive for your wax treatment, you should have a good idea as to how much hair you want to be removed and the area of your body that you want to be treated. If you only want a minimal amount removed in your bikini area because it’s swimsuit season, then you need to let the technician know so that wax isn’t applied to your legs and other areas. Let the technician know about any issues that you’ve had with your skin that are related to shaving or waxing as there are usually products for sensitive skin. Avoid getting wax treatments every other week. You might want smoother skin, but if you wax all the time, then it can leave your skin irritated. After your treatment, you can apply an ice pack to the area to help decrease any redness that might occur.
