Important Informacion

These are often called waxing contraindications when it could be harmful to you to use this hair removal method.

  • You currently take Accutane or have stopped taking it less than a year ago.
  • You’re taking any prescription acne medication.
  • You have lupus or AIDS.
  • You’re in cancer therapy getting chemotherapy or radiation.
  • CAUTION: when you’re on blood thinners,  RETIN-A and antibiotics

Things you can do to prepare for waxing:

  • Let it grow…but not too long
  • Exfoliating before waxing keeps the dead skin cells at bay, and it allows hairs to break through the surface
  • Moisturize days leading up to the waxing and also after
  • Take an Advil or Aleve 45min before appointment
  • Try to use a daily serum for ingrown hairs, and always exfoliate to keep your skin soft and smooth in between waxes
