Unique U does not recommend waxing while using prescription skin treatments such as Retin-A, Accutane, or Glycolic Products.
Be sure to avoid sun exposure and any heat treatments for at least two hours before waxing and twelve hours after waxing.
Please consult with your Esthetician prior to booking a service. For best results, first-time wax clients should have 1/4" or 2 weeks of hair growth.
Waxing services can be performed on all areas of the body.
Exfoliate the skin the day before your appointment with a loofah, wash cloth, or body scrub.
Hair growth should be at least 1/4'' to 1/2'' (about 3 weeks growth after shaving & after 5 weeks after waxing) for the most effective waxing. Hair should be carefully trimmed if necessary.
In order to prevent ingrown hairs, regular exfoliation should helpful. For your hairs to get above the surface of the pores we recommend using a loofah or wash cloth 1-2 days after waxing, exfoliate every other day and stop a day before waxing again.
Avoid tight clothing after waxing, especially in the waxed areas. Tight clothing may result in irritation and ingrown hairs.
Avoid saunas, steam rooms, whirlpools and sun exposure for at least 48 hours.
Avoid heavy exercise for at least 24 hours after waxing.
When NOT to wax:
Never wax if you are taking Accutane, Renova, Differin, or Retin-A. These medications increase the rate at which your skin exfoliates.
If you are currently experiencing sunburned skin, please wait until sunburned skin is completely healed before making an appointment.
