If you’re brand new to getting waxing services for yourself, you may be wondering what the prep work and aftercare looks like. At The Pampered Peach waxing studio in Long Island, we’re here to help our customers be as prepared as possible for their waxing appointments, so the wax goes smoothly and is a comfortable, pain-free experience! Learn more today about what you should do before and after your waxing appointment.
When You Make Your Appointment
First, when you make your appointment, you’ll speak with one of our waxing professionals at our wax bar. If you’ve never gotten a professional waxing service before, we’ll give you a quick run-down over the phone of things to expect and requirements our studio has for cleanliness and punctuality. This is also a great time to ask us any questions you may have about waxing and what to expect!
Day-Before and Day-Of Care
In the days or hours before your waxing appointment, you can prepare yourself by gently exfoliating the area that you’re going to be waxing. This helps to get rid of any dead skin, debris, or residues from body products that may be sitting on top of your outermost layer of skin. Getting rid of this will help the wax to stick only to the hair in the area, making your wax as pain-free as possible. If you have a low pain tolerance, you can also prepare by taking ibuprofen or acetaminophen to help reduce inflammation and pain responses.
When You Get Home
Once you’re at our wax bar, your professional wax specialist will speak with you about what you should do once you get home and ask if you have any questions about caring for your skin and body after your wax appointment. They’ll also provide you with recommendations for any products that can be helpful for soothing any potential irritation once you’ve gotten home.
Aftercare & More
In the days after you visit our waxing studio in Long Island, a great way to ensure that the waxed area stays smooth and irritation-free is to avoid any tight clothing that may restrict airflow to the skin. In addition, you can use aloe or skin-repairing lotion like Aquaphor on the area. Be sure to avoid sunbathing, swimming, and further exfoliation with that area for the next 48 hours, as well.
