Tips and Preparation for a Successful Face Wax


A lot of people are apprehensive when it comes to getting their face waxed. The thought of the pain and the potential harm that it’ll do on the skin can be intimidating. However, when done by a professional, waxing can be a safe and gentle way to remove unwanted hair. At Platinum Gold Aesthetics, we want to make our clients feel comfortable and informed before going into their appointments. Here are some tips and preparation that’ll help you have a successful face wax with us.


Avoid direct sun exposure before and after your appointment

Sun exposure increases skin sensitivity which can cause more pain during the waxing process. After waxing, the skin is more prone to irritation and sunburn. It’s recommended to avoid direct sun exposure 24-48 hours before and after your waxing session. This will not only help in preventing discomfort but will also ensure that the skin heals quickly after the process.

Exfoliate 24-48 hours before the appointment

This will help in removing any dead skin cells and will also allow for a smoother waxing process. Dead skin often gets trapped in hair follicles, making it difficult for the wax to grip hair properly. Exfoliating will prevent any ingrown hairs and make the waxing process much easier and less painful.

Refrain from shaving before the appointment

It is recommended to let the hair grow out to at least a quarter of an inch before waxing. Shaving can make the hair length shorter, making it difficult for the wax to grip the hair. In this case, the results won’t be as satisfying. Shaving can also make the hair more prickly and rough, which can cause more discomfort during the waxing process.

Take medication if needed

If you have a low pain tolerance, it’s recommended to take medication like ibuprofen or Tylenol an hour before your appointment. This will help in reducing pain and making the waxing process less stressful.
