Post Treatment Guide For Waxing

What to Expect After Your Waxing

Many will experience little-to-no side effects from waxing. In other cases, you may experience redness or bumps due to skin irritation. These side effects typically subside quickly and may be hastened by applying soothing gel such as aloe vera or over the counter steroid creams such as hydrocortisone.

Post Treatment Instructions:

  • Avoid heat producing activities such as exercise, sauna, hot tubs, or sexual activity (specific to bikini/brazilian treatment), for one day
  • For best results, stick to the waxing schedule recommended by your service provider
  • For facial waxing, minor breakouts may occur. Toners or acne spot treatment creams may be applied to decrease recovery time.

When Should I Expect to See Results?

Results are immediate. As a part of the process, unwanted hair is removed from the root, leaving smooth, silky skin behind. However, these results are semi-permanent and will require sequential visits on a schedule recommended by your skin care specialist.

I had the Signature Facial and the Dermaplaning Treatment at Elan. This was by far the best facial that I have ever had! It was so relaxing and my skin was absolutely radiant after my treatment.

I also had dermaplaning which I had never done before. I have sensitive skin so I was a little nervous at first, but the esthetician calmed my nerves and the results were magical!

I had a fantastic experience at Elan. I got (my first) microdermabrasion facial & was super impressed by the communicative approach, aftercare advice, &, most importantly, results.

You can tell how much care & attention is put towards the client’s experience which is refreshing.
