Qualified beauticians at Renew Skin & Health Clinic suggest that the perfect hair length for waxing should be at least 0.6 cm and the areas to be waxed should be clean and sun exposed-free for at least 48 hours. You can also have a light skin exfoliation several days before the hair removal treatment and wash off any deodorant or anti-perspiring traces from the axillary area prior to the treatment as it will stop the wax from properly adhering to the skin. Also, women should avoid waxing treatments three days prior to and during their periods, when the skin is most sensitive. There are also a few situations that you should definitely take into account and discuss with one of our beauticians or therapists at Renew Skin & Health Clinic, including if you're suffering from diabetes, you bruise easily, are sunburned or use various products or medication that are contraindicated with waxing such as Retine-A, glycolic acid, Tazorac Avage, benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid to avoid any inconvenient risks or complications.
