Before You Wax, Do These Things

Before You Wax, Do These Things

Preparing for waxing is something that is going to benefit you both in the pain reduction department as well as making sure that you get the best procedure possible once you’re there.  Too many people feel that it is simply the waxing salon for the products that are being used that contributes to how much pain you feel for how well the process goes.  Preparing your skin beforehand is going to give you a far better result than if you don’t take any of the cautions or preparations that more experienced people will do regularly. Waxing is a far superior process to shaving due to the fact that shaving only cuts the hair off of the skin surface, meaning that within only a few hours time it will be beginning to show at the surface again.  This is the inevitable razor stubble that creates not only in bad look but also is unpleasant to the touch.  There are two reasons for this, first and foremost because the hair has been cut off flat at the service.  This means it does not have a natural shape and instead is thick from top to bottom.  It also causes the hair to grow back in thicker and darker than it was before, which usually means that you’re going to have to shave even more in order to maintain a smooth look.  Waxing on to the other hand removes the hair all the way to the root, which means that is going to take far longer afford to break through the skin surface and begin to show.  This translates to not only a smoother look for a far longer period of time, but also the need to wax less in the future because the hair grows back thinner and lighter.  You’re going to be able to make the best of your wax session by doing a few simple preparation steps.

The first thing you’re going to want to do is to make sure that you take an ibuprofen about an hour before your procedure.  This will reduce the amount of sensitivity and pain the field during the lax in itself.  Do not take any kind of blood thinner beforehand if this can have a negative effect, and also avoid tanning or sprint in as well as dermabrasions for peels in the days before you’re going to be waxed.  Make sure that you avoid alcohol and caffeine for a day are so before you go in for your procedure as these can make it more painful.  Keep your skin hydrated and drink lots of water, but the most important part you need to remember is to wait about three or four weeks between waxes.  This will allow the hair grow back to about ¼ inch long which is the ideal length for trapping it within the wax and removing it fully.  Longer hair generally hurts more to pull out, so you want to make sure that you are in that sweet spot of around three or four weeks in order to get the least painful wax with the best results.  Follow these and you will get the best results possible.
