Waxing Precautions- Product Ingredients

Though waxing is considered a basic esthetics service, it can have side effects such as lifting of the skin. We take precautions to ensure your waxing service goes smoothly. As a result, your service provider will ask you a few questions to ensure you meet the criteria for this service.

The following are waxing precautions. Please discontinue usage of the following product ingredients 1 week prior to your appointment date.

AHA/BHA 

AHA/BHA acids are ideal for treating active acne conditions, dry skin, pigmentation, and fine lines. However, they can cause the skin to become sensitized to waxing.

These acids vary in degrees of intensity, thereby, can pose a risk for lifting of the skin in area being waxed. Please discontinue use of prescribed AHA/BHA one week prior to your waxing appointment.

Hydroquinone

Hydroquinone is a powerful lightening agent and can cause the skin to become highly sensitized.

Please discontinue use of prescribed hydroquinone one week prior to your waxing appointment.

Retinols

Retinols have the power to smooth skin by stimulating collagen production and cell turnover.

This powerful ingredient can also cause the skin to be sensitized to waxing, and pose a risk for lifting the skin in area being waxed.

Please discontinue use of prescribed retinols one week prior to your waxing appointment.
