Before Your Appointment
  • Allow your hair to grow for at least 2 weeks after shaving before your appointment

  • We will trim your hair if necessary

  • Exfoliate the area to be serviced 24-48 hours before your appointment

  • It's perfectly fine to sugar or wax while you are on your period, although some women might experience more sensitivity during this time. Should you choose to get serviced during your period, insert a fresh tampon before you arrive

  • You may take an over-the-counter pain medication before your appointment

  • Avoid sunbathing and tanning beds 24 hours before your appointment

  • Skin that is sunburned, cracked, or irritated can not be sugared or waxed

  • you can not sugar or wax if you are taking the oral medication, Accutane

  • Discontinue use of any prescription acne or anti-aging products such as Retin-A or Differin at least 1 week before any facial sugaring or waxing service

 
Immediately following Your appointment

It is normal for your skin to be sensitive and irritated immediately following your appointment. Your skin will return to normal in 24-48 hours. You will experience far less irritation once you are on a regular schedule of sugaring or waxing every 4-6 weeks.

While your skin is showing signs of irritation, please follow these guidelines:

  • No hot showers or baths (lukewarm showers are fine)

  • Avoid rigorous exercise that would cause friction and sweating in the recently serviced area

  • Avoid sexual activity after bikini sugaring or waxing

  • A cool compress can be used to calm the skin

  • Avoid wearing tight clothing so the area can breath

  • No swimming

  • Avoid heat sources such as saunas, tanning beds, steam rooms, and sunbathing

  • Do not exfoliate or use any alpha-hydroxy acids in the treated area

 
After 24 hours
  • Daily exfoliation will help in the prevention of ingrown hairs. Avoid body scrubs that contain oils as these could clog the hair follicles, leading to more ingrown hairs

  • Try the Tend Skin sold at Sugar Coated to keep your skin smooth and clear between hair removal services

  • For best results, book your next appointment in 4-6 weeks
