Yes! I proudly use Cruelty Free Cirépil Products.
Please allow your hair to grow for a minimum 21 days or longer before waxing if you've previously shaved. This may vary depending on hair cycles and speed of hair growth. Hair should be a minimum of ½ inch.
In the beginning, results can last 2-4 weeks, depending on your hair re-growth cycle. With regular waxing, the length of time required between treatments will increase to 4-6 weeks then 6-8 weeks or longer. Since hair growth patterns differ based on the individual, you may need a few treatments before you see the full benefits of waxing.
Yes, exfoliating or hydroxy-based medications including but not limited to: Retin-A, Renova, Differin and Tazorac are contraindications to waxing. Blood thinners, steroids, skin lighters and oral acne medications such as Accutane are also medications that will prevent you from waxing services. If you wax while on these topicals and/or medications, it may result in skin irritation, peeling or hyperpigmentation. Always check with your doctor first. Be sure to tell me BEFORE I put wax on you.
Waxing is more effective than shaving because it removes the entire hair from the root, not just from the surface of the skin, giving you longer lasting results. With consistent waxing over time, hair grows back finer and sparser whereas with shaving, hair appears to grow back faster, thicker and coarser. In addition, shaving increases the risk of cuts, ingrown hairs and razor burn especially in sensitive areas such as bikini, chest and underarms.
Cirépil by Perron Rigot believes: “It’s not just about what we remove. It is about what we leave behind… Healthy Skin!” Unlike traditional methods of waxing, Cirépil wax sticks to the hair rather than the skin, reducing the pain of waxing by 50%! Cirépil wax encapsulates the hair, removing it from the root while leaving the skin undamaged. When the integrity of the skin is uncompromised, there is reduced inflammation, redness and downtime for the client; making painful waxing a thing of the past!
You can start waxing when you reach puberty; however, it is important to note that like pregnancy, puberty is a time where the body experiences lots of hormonal changes that can impact the quantity, colour, texture and growth rate of your hair. So if you’re going through puberty and need waxing done, be mindful that your hair growth cycles are moving faster than those individuals who are in different stages of life. As a pubescent, you will likely need to be diligent in waxing every 2-4 weeks. Depending upon your age and state laws, your waxing professional may require parent’s consent.
Waxing during pregnancy is common; however, with increased hormones and blood flow, pregnant women may be more sensitive to waxing. It is recommended that you consult your doctor first before doing anything with or to your body while pregnant.
Exfoliate. To improve waxing results and reduce your chances of getting ingrown hairs it is recommended that a few days prior to, and after your waxing appointment, you gently exfoliate the skin. You can exfoliate as much as 3 times a week. Removing dead skin cells keeps your skin healthy and soft in-between waxing. Please ask me what products work best for this.
Moisturize. To keep skin hydrated and smooth while helping new hairs to reach the surface of the skin without becoming ingrown, moisturize daily with with a gentle non irritating moisturizer.
As with all waxing, Brazilian waxing post-care includes keeping the waxed area free from bacterial to prevent breakouts. For 48 hours after waxing, apply MRX Spray (Do not apply near or inside mucus cavities) and avoid increasing circulation through any form. This includes exercise, tanning, spicy food and sexual activity. Increasing blood flow and body temperature after waxing can aggravate waxed areas and prolong the presence of inflammation, redness and the potential for infection of the hair follicle. You may apply MRX Spray to keep waxed area clean for 48 hours.
Shaving or tweezing in between appointments interferes with the effectiveness of your waxing treatment and will prolong maximum results. Therefore, it’s best to leave the area alone with the exception of exfoliating and moisturizing. Overtime, your hair will decrease in density and coarseness and you will be less concerned with the presence of hair in-between waxing appointments because it will become less noticeable.
Tanning prior to or after waxing is not recommended by beauty professionals as tanning, in any respect, is damaging to the skin. When waxing, Cirépil wax professionals aim to protect the skin and minimize the presence of redness and inflammation; therefore, it’s best to not tan before your appointment and to arrive at your appointment with uncompromised skin. However, after your Cirépil waxing treatment, if you’re thinking about tanning or vacationing somewhere warm, you must wait at least 48 hours before exposing the waxed area to UV rays. No matter how gentle the waxing process, the skin will be slightly exfoliated, more sensitive and be at greater risk for hyperpigmentation. Whether intentionally exposing yourself to UV rays or not, is essential that you wear sunscreen after waxing.
