VLS FAQ's

 

HOW SHOULD I PREP FOR A WAX

 

Pre-Waxing Tips

• Do not shave or wax for at least 3 to 4 weeks prior to your treatment.

• Female clients may have heightened sensitivity during the week prior to or during menstruation.

• Limit your caffeine intake the day of your waxing service. Caffeine stimulates the nervous system

and increases sensitivity.

 

Before your wax, please Do not:

• Use Retin-A/Renova for at least 30 days.

• Use Accutane for at least one year.

• Perform peels 7 days prior

Use any exfoliation tools (dermabrasion/microdermabrasion, brushes)

• Consume excessive amounts of alcohol or sunbathe for at least 48 hours.

• Use self-tanners, exfoliants, or moisturizers the day of the service

 

What about after I get waxed?

• Minimize skin irritation by applying aloe vera or hydrocortisone cream to the treated area.

You may wash the waxed area, but refrain from using harsh cleansers or creams for 24 – 48

hours.

• Stay away from hot tubs, hot showers, hot baths, sunbathing, and tanning for at least 24 – 48hours.

• Prevent ingrown hairs by avoiding exfoliation for 2 – 3 days and then exfoliating the area regularly.

• Avoid shaving in between waxing treatments.

  • Avoid sex 24hrs after Brazilian

 

 

HOW SHOULD I PREP FOR A PEEL

I’m curious about getting a peel — tell me more.

Peels can have a transformative effect on your skin but, you need the right preparation. For this reason, VLS does not perform peels on 1st-time guests. If you are interested in receiving a peel and have never visited VLS before we recommend our New Client Let's Get Acquainted Service.  A full consultation and treatment plan (which may include peels) is performed as a part of this service.
