Waxing Instead of Laser Hair Removal
Have you just discovered you’re not a candidate for laser hair removal and feeling a little down? Lethbridge Plastic Surgery has a solution — waxing!
If you’re looking for smooth, hair-free skin with less commitment than shaving, then waxing is a great option. If you’re completely new to the wonderful world of waxing, here are three tips to get you prepared.
This one is hard. Okay, really hard. But it’s so important! Absolutely no shaving or trimming in between your waxing services. Waxing reduces your hair growth, so your hair starts to grow much thinner the more you keep up with it. Shaving just one time in between will undo all that is gained from waxing and can also irritate your follicles causing ingrown hairs. It might be easier just to throw away your razor all together if you’ve decided to start waxing!
Regular exfoliation is a must! We recommend exfoliating every other day for maximum results. When you exfoliate your skin, you are able to slough away all those dead skin cells and make way for new skin cells, which results in soft and dewy skin. If you exfoliate every single day, this can irritate your skin follicles and actually slow down your cell turnover rate! If you stick to every other day, you’re golden!
The easiest way to maintain your appointments is to schedule them in advance. We recommend scheduling your appointments every 4-6 weeks for best results.
