Waxing

Waxing Studio | Saratoga NYWaxing is a temporary hair removal method that has been popular since ancient times.  Waxing removes hair from the root, it hurts more the first time, if you wax regularly  (every 4 to 6 weeks)  there is less hair, therefore less discomfort.

Connie’s Electrolysis and Waxing Studio offers a variety of waxing products, both hard and soft waxes, that are suitable for all  skin types and conditions.

Pre Waxing Prep:

  • Particularly for women: Your skin is often more sensitive the time near your period, and waxing can be more painful than normal. So your appointment shouldn’t be any closer than a couple of days before or after your period
  • Shower and lightly exfoliate right before your appointment using warm, not hot water
  • Don’t use any lotions
  • If you are currently shaving you should stop 10 to 14 days prior to waxing.  You need ¼ to 1/2 inch hair growth for the wax to hold onto. This hair length is usually reached in 2 to 3 weeks, depending on the body part
  • Take a pain reliever 30- minutes before your appointment if you’re worried about discomfort
  • Wear comfortable clothing

Post Waxing:

  •  Avoid the sun immediately after waxing and please use sunscreen
  • Avoid heavy exercise for at least 24 hours after waxing
  • Avoid saunas, steam rooms, whirlpools and other heated sources for at least 48 hours
  • Hold off on taking hot baths for at least two hours, but should bathe/shower after waxing to further clean the area
  • Do not use exfoliating products for at least 24 hours after waxing as they might further irritate your skin
  • Avoid tight clothing after waxing, especially in the waxed areas. Tight clothing may result in irritation and ingrown hairs
  • Regular exfoliation may be helpful to remove dead skin so your hairs can get out above the surface of the pores and not become ingrown
  • Routine waxing helps the skin get accustomed to the procedure and may minimize irritation
  • For 48 hours after the treatment, the area will be more sensitive than usual.  Apply cold compresses and an anti-inflammatory cream, such as hydro-cortisone, if the skin is especially tender.
