CONTRAINDICATIONS FOR WAXING

A contraindication is a condition which renders a particular service improper or undesirable.

If you are taking or have taken any of the medications below within the past 3 months, you are NOT a good candidate for waxing.

  • Accutane (Acne medication)  No waxing for 1 year after last dose
  • Adapalene (Acne medication) No waxing for 1 year after last dose
  • Alustra (Retin A)

If you are taking, or have taken, any of the above medications, it is important to let me know prior to any waxing service.  There are circumstances where we may do a patch test and see how the skin reacts.

 

CAUTION

If you are currently using any of the following products, please inform me prior to your waxing service.  These products can increase skin sensitivity which may make the skin more vulnerable to lifting and scarring.

  • Other Acne medications not listed above
  • Bleaching agents for hair (used mostly for upper lip)
  • Bleaching agents for pigmentation of skin (Hydroquinone, Trilumena)
  • Previous chemical depilatories such as Nair
  • Benzoyl Peroxide (ProActive)
  • Alpha Hydroxy Acids (Glycolic, Lactic)
  • Oral Antibiotics
  • Topical Antibiotics
  • Retinol
  • Salicylic Acid
  • Other exfoliants

 

PRECAUTIONS

  • Sunburned, irritated or areas with open skin cannot be waxed. Waxing can be performed around these areas.
  • You must wait a minimum of seven (7) days before waxing after a light chemical or Microdermabrasion.
  • Waxing cannot be performed if you have been in a tanning booth the same day.
  • Waxing cannot be performed if you have had laser skin resurfacing within the past year.
  • Waxing cannot be performed if you have had a physician administered peel within the past year.
  • If irritation should occur, use cool compresses, and an antibiotic ointment to keep the area continually moist to avoid infection and scabbing.
  • No sun/tanning booths for 2 days following a waxing treatment.
  • No hot baths up to 48 hours following a body waxing treatment.
  • No abrasives up to 48 hours following a waxing treatment.
  • No deodorants for 24 hours following an underarm waxing treatment.
  • Women may experience extra sensitivity to waxing up to a week prior to the beginning of their menstruation.
  • It is not safe to wax over eczema or psoriasis skin types. Waxing over these dormant areas can activate an episode resulting in scarring, lifting and painful healing times.

There are always the sensitive skin varieties with terminal hair (deeply rooted thick hair) that react traumatically when waxed.  Such reactions may include small whiteheads, blisters and perhaps welts. Use soothing products like Aloe or Calamine lotion, and cool compresses until symptoms subside (Normally 72 hours after a waxing).

It is very important never to go out into the sun unprotected after waxing.
