With the holidays here, it’s important that you are looking and feeling like your absolute best self. With a variety of treatments, our staff at Twin City Plastic Surgery can give you the confidence that you need to walk into the new year feeling more ready than ever. One of the fastest and easiest ways to do so? Getting professionally waxed. Whether you are getting your legs, underarms, bikini area, or anywhere else waxed, we have a few tips that can help you get the most out of it.
We encourage our patients to use a gentle exfoliator the day before they come in for a waxing appointment. An exfoliator will help to get rid of any ingrown hairs or dead skin which will leave you with better results. Make sure that you don’t exfoliate on the day of, because it may make your skin more sensitive.
Wait Between Treatments
If you have never been professionally waxed before, this may come as a shock to you, but you should wait about 4-6 weeks to get waxed again. We encourage all of our patients to come into our office with hair that has grown out for at least that long because it makes it easier for the wax and paper to adhere to it.
You may be tempted to tweeze your hair in between each waxing session, but that’s a definite no-no. Although you can shave a little in-between (which will just make you have to wait longer to get waxed), don’t do anything that will disrupt the hair follicle— like tweezing.
Even though you have to wait about 4-6 weeks in between each waxing session, don’t be a stranger. The more consistent you are with getting professionally waxed, the better results you are going to see. Not only will your hair be in the same growth cycle but getting frequent waxing can also slow down your hair growth.
