Here are some guidelines to ensure that your skin is cared for after your waxing. The following reactions are quite common after waxing and are normal and temporary reactions. All should subside within 24hrs:

• Heat reaction
– Post treatment could be seen on the skin for several hours following your wax. This could be in the form of slight soreness, small bumps or redness of your skin. This varies person to person from a mild redness to a much stronger reaction such as hives
• Waxing aftercare Skin sensitivity advice
– Try to avoid very hot baths, showers, steam rooms, saunas and Jacuzzis for 24 hours
– Skin sensitivity to UV light. Please avoid sun-beds and sunbathing for 24 hours, as more intense burning could occur
– Avoid applying fake tan to your skin for 24 hours
– Don’t apply deodorant or anything perfumed for 24 hours
– Avoid wearing tight clothing, such as skinny jeans and tights for 24 hours

If the waxing aftercare advice given is followed your skin should return to normal within 24 hours. If any reaction is still present after this time, it may be an allergic reaction to the wax so please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any problems.

Advice for all areas bikini line waxing such as Hollywood and all body waxing, leg waxing, back waxing and chest waxing the following is advisable:

• Wear loose fitting clothing after the waxing session for 24 hours
• Gently exfoliate your skin 24-48 hours after your appointment
• Between waxing appointments exfoliate 3-4 times a week
• Exfoliating the skin using antibacterial body wash may help if the ingrown hairs are inflamed. Use one with a natural fragrance. Something with tea tree or essential oils will be advised, for example tea tree or peppermint. This can be applied with exfoliating mitts.
• Once the hair has started to grow back, usually around 3-4 weeks, we advise that you exfoliate every day, this will help all the hairs come to the surface straight away and avoid becoming ingrown
• Moisturise the area daily which will keep the skin supple and help new hairs to break through. Once again don’t use anything too perfumed

To maintain the best waxing results and keep on top of ingrown hairs, we would recommend regular waxing, about every 4-6 weeks. Avoid shaving the areas in between sessions as this will cause it to be more painful and the hair may be too strong or short or turn back into the skin causing ingrown hairs

If you are prone to waxing burns for any of the following reasons please notify your therapist before treatment, so we can use extra care while waxing.

• Recent sunburn or extreme sun exposure
• Very dry or dehydrated skin
• Areas of loose skin
• Extremely sensitive skins e.g. eczema and psoriasis
• Wax temperature (either to hot or cold)
• Certain waxing removal techniques
• For facial areas specifically
• Overuse of exfoliating products
• Overuse of Vitamin A or Retinol
• Extremely Sensitive skins
• Recent facials / peels (within the last 7 days)
• Recent facial aesthetics (within the last month)

If your therapist notices any marks in treatment they will advise you what has happened and offer the best aftercare. Sometimes the redness does not appear immediately and once you’re home you may notice this.

Waxing burn, bruising and patches of skin removal can sometimes happen due to the fact we are using hot wax to remove hairs which are made from the same substance as your skin – Keratin. Receiving burns during a waxing appointment is very rare. We always use the utmost caution by applying talcum powder to your skin before the green tea strip wax and waxing strips. For Harley aloe vera hot wax the procedure is slightly different, in that we would apply pre-oil before the wax is applied, but sometimes mishaps occur.

• Clean the area with cool water or a soothing cleanser such as Aloe Vera
• Do not use anything perfumed
• Apply antibacterial or antiseptic cream, if the area is very inflamed or red
• Keep doing so for 1-3 days
• It is very important to apply a thick layer of sunscreen if you are going out in the sun
• For the facial areas try and avoid any make up for 3-4 days
• Avoid any exfoliating products for at least 7 days
• Keep the area hydrated and moisturised
• We suggest bio oil or an aloe vera soothing lotion
• The area will start to heal and possibly flake
• It can take up to 7 days to heal

If you have any questions regarding waxing burns or need advice after your waxing treatment at Dermaesthetics clinic, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Featuring its exclusive 3D technology, Soprano Titanium combines the three most effective laser wavelengths into a single applicator, simultaneously targeting different tissue depths and anatomical structures within the hair follicle.

  • Disclaimer: individual results may vary.

STEP BY STEP PROCESS

A consultation is important to primarily discuss your needs and expectations. Our aesthetic practitioner will assess your medical history and suitability for the treatment and ask you to give informed consent for the treatment course.

A patch test is required at least 24 hours before commencing your first treatment. This is to assess the amount of melanin (colour) in the hair and determine the correct settings to use for an effective, virtually pain-free treatment. You will be asked to shave the area on the morning of your first treatment to achieve the best results.

During the treatment, the laser is passed over the skin in a slow, fluid motion. This movement gradually heats the hair follicles in the sub dermal (lower) layer of the skin using pulses of energy that are absorbed into the melanin (brown colour) in the hair. This stops the blood supply to the hair, so it can no longer be produced. All you will feel is a warm, comfortable sensation whilst this magic is happening!

After your treatment, your hair will start to grow as though it’s been shaved. The hairs can remain in the skin and often become attached to the epidermis (upper layers of skin). They will fall out within 19 to 30 days after the treatment as the skin naturally renews itself. As the blood supply to the hair has been stopped, the follicle starts to miniaturises, resulting in the hair being eradicated or depigmented and fined to vellus hair. Treatment intervals vary from 4-8 weeks apart depending on the treatment area.

TREATMENT ADVICE

  • Avoid the sun and sunbeds 2 weeks before and after treatment. You MUST avoid bleaching, plucking or waxing hair for 6 weeks prior to treatment.
  • Do not use Depilatory creams 1 week prior to treatment.
  • If have had a history of cold sores, zovirax may be used prior to treatment and continued one week after treatment.
  • The use of tanning cream must be discontinued two weeks before treatment.
  • Please thoroughly shave the area with a bladed razor (not electric trimmers) the evening before your treatment or first thing in the morning on the day with your treatment. If you arrive with the area unshaved or poorly shaven we will not be able to perform your treatment and therefore you will lose one session of your total treatment course. Skin must be stubble free and smooth otherwise the treatment will be at greater risk of causing burns.
  • For Facial Laser Hair Removal you must arrive without make-up or arrive early enough to remove your own make-up on site on time before your appointment.
  • If you are having your fingers or toes treated, please ensure you are not wearing any nail polish.
  • Safety considerations are important during the laser procedure. The client and the operator will wear protective eyewear during the procedure.
  • Immediately after treatment, there may be redness, swelling and in very rare cases mild blistering at the treatment area, which may feel like mild sunburn. These are normal skin reactions to this treatment.
  • The application of iced water during the first few hours after treatment will reduce any discomfort.
  • The application of aloe vera/rose hip cream recommended. We stock laser hair removal after care special formulated creams.
  • Make-up may be used immediately after the treatment unless there is epidermal blistering.
  • Avoid sun exposure for 2 weeks to reduce the chance of hyperpigmentation or darker pigmentation. Use sunscreen SPF 30 or greater at all times throughout the course of treatment.
  • Avoid picking or scratching the treated skin. Do not use any other hair removal treatment methods (waxing, electrolysis or tweezing) that will disturb the hair follicle at the treatment area throughout your laser course.  Shaving or depilatories may be used.
  • Hair regrowth occurs at different rates on different areas of the body. New hair growth will not occur for AT LEAST three weeks after treatment.
  • Anywhere from 5-19 days after the treatment, shedding of the surface hair may occur and this appears as new hair growth. This is NOT new hair growth.  You can clean and remove the hair by washing or wiping the area with a wet cloth or Loofa sponge.
  • After the underarms are treated, use a powder, instead of deodorant, for 24 hours after the treatment to reduce skin irritation.
