Wisdom

Some Soho Urban Wax of wisdom:

Be clean
Bathe like you would if you were going to your OB/GYN. A warm shower helps open pores and makes hair removal easier.

Be dry
Cleaniness is appreciated. But please skip the lotion, you will get better results if your skin is less oily.

For women clientele with bikini treatment
Be menstruation free! Generally, it is best to get a Brazilian at least a few days before or after your period. The closer you get to your period cycle, the more sensitive your body becomes.

Be comfortable
Wear loose clothing that day to prevent irritation in the post – wax phase. For more nervous clientele, we recommend taking ibuprofen at least 20 minuites before your waxing service, as long as this does not contradict what your doctor has told you. Avoid caffeine and alcohol as these can stimulate, making you more sensitive.

Be relaxed
The more relaxed your muscles are the better your hair removal results will be!

Do go to a license & insured wax specialist
Pick someone based on referrals or establish a relationship with the technician first by trying a less intimate treatment and build your comfort level. And the bottom line is… go with your instincts!

My best aftercare advice:
Hold off on taking hot baths for at least two hours.
Avoid ultra – violet rays from tanning beds and sunbathing for at least 48 hours.
Resist make up (if face waxed)
Resist sauna and steam room for at least 48 hours.
Abstain from use of any products containing acid, i.e. alpha – hydroxy
