How To Prep For Your Waxing Service

March 11, 2022

Whether you’re new to the world of hair removal or not, we want to reveal a few tricks of the trade that promise to make for a better waxing experience. From the ideal frequency between appointments to how to prep your skin for an upcoming session, keep reading to discover all there is to know about booking a treatment at WAXON.

How to prep for your upcoming WAXON visit:

1. Book Appointment:
WAXON’s easy-to-use online booking system and NEW iOS and Android App allows you to make an appointment in just a few clicks. Select your location, service, date & time, and voila! You’re all set. Remember, for optimal results, we recommend booking your next waxing appointment every 4-5 weeks.

2. Prep For Your Waxing Appointment:

  • Use a gentle scrub or body polish the night before your waxing session to slough off dead skin cells, making your hair easier to remove the next day. You’ll also want to use a moisturizer or oil the night before to ensure your skin is hydrated, healthy, and ready for the waxing process.

  • Grow Out Hair Before Waxing: Your hair must be long enough for the wax to encase it and pull it out by the root. Generally, the ideal length is roughly 4-5 weeks of hair growth (¼ inch in length), however, our revolutionary Platinum wax can remove hair as short as 1 - 2mm if you are in desperate need of an “emergency” wax.

3. I HAVE…. Can You Still Get Waxed You Ask?

  • I have my period can I still get waxed?
Yes, you can! We just want you to be aware that your skin is more sensitive when you are menstruating, and your pain tolerance is lower. Just make sure you wear a tampon, tuck the string in and make your Waxologist aware.

HOT TIP: We have Zensa Numbing Cream to minimize your discomfort. Purchase it in-store or online. Zensa can be applied 30 minutes before your appointment time, to numb the area prior to your appointment!


  • I have a baby on the way can I still get waxed?

Yes you can! Just let us know that you are expecting when booking your appointment so we can allow extra time because your pain tolerance is lower.

  • I have a cold sore on my lip can I still get waxed?
Yes, all of our Waxologists wear gloves and don't d so it is safe to work around it.

4. We do not recommend waxing if...
  • You have a sunburn.
  • You have been or plan on being in the sun or tanning bed within 24 hours.
  • If you've recently had treatments such as chemical peel, Dermabrasion, Microdermabrasion or cosmetic injections.
  • You are currently taking acne medication such as: Accutane (affects all body waxing), Retin-A (affects areas the cream is used on) or any other prescribed acne medication.

GOOD NEWS... after 6 months of completing your acne medication, your skin will be less sensitive and less prone to scarring and you will be able to wax again!

Consult your Doctor or Dermatologist about any other concerns.

We recommend you wait at least 24 hours before exfoliating because your pores have been opened when the hair was removed, and your skin could still be sensitive. Try our loofah or body scrubs in delicious scents, exclusively made for waxing care!

If you experience red bumps post-treatment you aren't the only one in this boat... this is totally normal.

When the hair is removed, it is being removed by the root and oftentimes, the follicle can be so deep that it causes an initial shock, resulting in a red bump. The bumps shouldn't last more than 24 - 48 hours. If you find the bump is more than an initial irritation and continues, appearing more like a rash, contact us.

 6. Purchase A Bar Tab To Save Time + Money:
Did you know that the ideal time frame between appointments is 4-5 weeks for waxing? That’s right, so why not go ahead and book multiple appointments all at once. You can save money on any of WAXON’s waxing, laser, and threading treatments by purchasing a bar tab package of 4, 6, or 8 sessions. Each tab comes with savings of between 15% and 25% and can be used at any WAXON location. Plus, you can buy now and pay later using PayBright.

There’s no time like the present! Book now and start your hair removal journey with WAXON.
