Carrie really does want your treatment to be a great experience and has a few handy tips to make it a pleasure not a pain. Carrie also stocks some wonderful products to help you keep your skin smooth, soft and bump free.
One of the most delightful advantages of waxing is that your hair will grow back finer and slower. This is because the hair bulb is removed from below the skin’s surface. Each time a new bulb grows back in the hair follicle, it will be weaker. Waxed hair takes two weeks for the bulb to grow back in the follicle, and one to two weeks for the hair to grow above the skin line, leaving you hair-free for at least three to four weeks.
So to make your experience fantastic follow the tips below and don’t hesitate to ask Carrie any questions.
Exfoliate before a waxing
Take Asprin or Tylenol 30-45 minutes before your appointment, if you feel you will need it.
Wear your oldest under garments for a bikini wax (alternatively a disposable G string is available)
Exfoliate two days after a waxing using a mild exfoliator
Keep up hair removal throughout the winter to avoid "starting over" every summer
Fight ingrown hairs by using a product called Bump Eraser
Avoid the sun, saunas, steam rooms, swimming and tanning booths for as long as any redness is present after waxing
Avoid wearing pantyhose or tight clothes after a bikini wax
Do not wax if using Retin-A, Differin, Renova, or Acutane
