Will I have any redness/irritation?
A small amount of irritation or redness is common when removing the hair directly from the follicle. There are some things you can do to prevent that irritation, as well as treat it. Taking Ibuprofen 30-40 minutes before your service can sometimes help to take the edge off, as well as help with any swelling or redness post wax. Always avoid caffeine up to 5 hours before your appointment as this can cause added sensitivity. Always wear loose fitting, cotton clothing to your appointment. Tighter clothing typically causes more irritation and ingrown hairs.
