Treatment Aftercare

To get maximum benefits from your treatments it is important to use the following aftercare advice

Waxing Aftercare

Keep the waxed area clean and avoid heat and friction during the next 24-48hrs, including:

  • No hot baths or showers (cool to lukewarm water only).
  • No saunas, hot tubs or steam treatments.
  • No tanning (sunbathing, sun beds or fake tan).
  • No sport, gym work or other exercise.
  • Avoid scratching or touching the treated area with unwashed hands.
  • Wear clean loose fitting clothes.
  • Avoid swimming in chlorinated pools.
  • Do not apply anti-perspirant, body sprays, powders, lotions or other products to the area, other than those recommended by your therapist.

To prevent ingrown hairs:

  • Gently exfoliate the skin 3 times a week (72hrs after wax).
  • Dry body brush daily (72hrs after wax).
  • Use a deep penetrating moisturiser daily.

You may notice a small amount of re-growth after a week or so.  It can take up to 4 treatments for your hair to follow the same growth cycle pattern.  Hair needs to be at least ½cm long before it can be successfully removed by waxing.  Please do not shave between your appointments.  To maintain your smooth appearance, waxing every 4-6 weeks is recommended.

Nails Aftercare

To keep your nails, hands and feet looking beautiful the following is recommended:

  • Do not use fingernails as tools.
  • Moisturise hands and feet daily.
  • Nourish cuticles with a good quality cuticle oil, twice a day.
  • Use a foot file weekly to prevent hard skin build up.
  • Use a basecoat to prevent staining of nails.
  • Do not use metal nail files.
  • Do not peel Shellac nail polish as this will weaken the nails.
  • Wear gloves when gardening or washing up.
  • Use acetone free nail polish remover.

 

 Lash Extension Aftercare

To ensure your Lashes are long lasting and stay beautiful, use the following advice:

  • For the first 2 hours after treatment do not allow water to contact the lashes.
  • For 2 days after treatment do not steam your face, use a steam bath, swim or wash your face with hot water.
  • Do not use waterproof mascara or mascara remover on Lashes as makeup remover will affect the bonding of the lashes.  Only use water based mascara on the Lash tip.
  • Do not perm lashes.
  • Do not use lash curlers.
  • Do not rub eyes or lashes when washing your face, always pat dry lashes after cleansing.
  • An occasional short visit to the sauna is fine.  However going on a daily basis may cause earlier maintenance as the lashes could prematurely fall off or tilt in a different direction from your natural lash.

 

Tanning Aftercare

For long lasting flawless results, use the following advice:

Before:

  • Exfoliate the night before and moisturise paying particular attention to elbows, knees, ankles, and any problem areas.
  • Paint nails and toenails – especially if they are acrylics or similar.
  • Wax/shave at least 24hrs prior to treatment to allow pores time to close.  Dotting in pores may appear if not adhered to.
  • Do not moisturise or use skin lotions on the day of your tan.
  • Remove make-up, deodorant, lotions, etc, before your tan.

After:

  • Do not shower or bathe for at least 8hrs (the development period).
  • Do not exercise or swim during the development period.
  • Try not to touch your skin during the development period.
  • Moisturise day and night for a longer lasting tan.
  • After day 5, exfoliate on a daily basis, to help your skin absorb even more moisturiser and keep it looking and feeling gorgeous.
  • Long exposure to water and sweating from exercise will fade your spray tan.
