Aftercare
Waxing

Please note: following the waxing treatment you can feel a little sensitive, have some small bumps and look slightly red, this is perfectly normal, particularly if this is your first wax, the reaction usually subsides within 2-3 hours. If you experience persistent redness or irritation, or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

The advice below will ensure that you do not experience any adverse reaction to the treatment once leaving Magical Beauty:

- Keep the waxed area clean, and avoid heat and friction during the next 24-48 hours.
- Only luke warm showers or baths.
- Avoid all heat treatments- saunas, hot tubs or steam treatments.
- No tanning (sunbathing, sunbeds or fake tans).
- Avoid the gym or physical activity.
- Avoid scratching or touching the treated area with unwashed hands.
- Wear clean, loose fitting clothes.
- Avoid swimming in chlorinated pools.
- Do not apply deodorants, body sprays, powders, lotions for 24 hours.
- To soothe and protect the skin, apply an antiseptic cream to the waxed area regularly for 3 days following your treatment.

To prevent ingrown hairs: starting a few days after your appointment, gently scrub the skin 3 times a week in the bath or shower using an exfoliating mitt. Also moisturise the area daily, this will keep the skin supply and help new hairs to grow through normally. You may notice a small amount of regrowth after a week or so. It can take up to 4 treatments for your hair to get on a growth cycle that gives best results.
