Tips for a More Effective Wax Treatment

In addition to laser hair removal, waxing has proven itself to be a great alternative to shaving for hair removal. Although it doesn't offer a permanent solution, with each wax treatment the hair grows back thinner.

In order to get the most out of a body wax treatment here are some tips to consider taking beforehand:

  • Gently exfoliate your skin a day or two before waxing, but skip harsh scrubs the day of your waxing appointment. Exfoliation helps wax grab hair and not skin, but it can also leave skin more sensitive to pain, so lighter is better.
  • Moisturize well on the days leading up to your appointment. Moisturized skin allows the wax to release more easily, but don’t use too much, as it can interfere with the wax’s grip, so avoid moisturizing the day of.
  • Make sure the hair is long enough, ideally about a quarter inch.
