For best results, you should avoid applying cream or oil before treatment. Cream and oils prevent the wax from sticking to the skin. You should avoid waxing just before or during menstration when the skin is very sensitive. One should also avoid the use of epilation devices on the area you plan to wax. The hair in the waxing area should be at least 0.5 cm in length. It should take the hair approximately 4 weeks to grow out after treatment.
After waxing, you should avoid sunbathing for 48 hours and avoid the water for 24 hours.
The advantage of waxing is that it damages the roots, resulting in the hairs becoming thinner. Waxing can have the positive effect of substantially slowing regrowth.
You should avoid waxing if you have skin diseases, allergies, fresh scars, bruises, varicose veins or eczema.
