Male Waxing Aftercare Advice

After any waxing appointment it is important to ensure you look after your skin in the days following. This will help ensure the best possible result from the treatment.

Some slight soreness, small bumps and redness are common and perfectly normal temporary reactions, particularly after your first wax. These symptons usually subside over the 24-48 hours following the treatment.

You should keep the waxed area clean, and avoid heat and friction during the next 24 - 48 hours. This usually means:

  • No hot baths or showers (warm is fine);
  • No saunas, steam rooms or hot tubs;
  • No tanning (sunbathing, sunbeds or fake tans);
  • No sport, gym, or other exercise;
  • Avoid scratching or touching the treated area with unwashed hands;
  • Wear clean, loose fitting clothes;
  • Avoid swimming in chlorinated water;
  • Do not apply deodorants, body sprays, powders, lotions or other products to the area, other then those recommended by your therapist;
  • To sooth and protect the skin, apply an antiseptic cream to the waxed area regularly for 3 days. Always wash your hands before applying any product.

You may notice a small amount of regrowth after a week or so. It can take upto four treatments for your hair to get on a growth cycle that gives the best results. Hair needs to be at least 5mm long before it can be successfully removed by waxing. Please do not shave between appointments. To maintain your smooth appearance we recommend regular waxing ecery 4 - 6 weeks.

To prevent ingrown hairs

Starting a few days after your appointment, gently scrub the skin three times a week in the bath or shower using a loofah, exfoliating mitt or product. Also moisturise the area eery day, this will help keep the skin supple and help new hairs to grow through normally.
