+ Questions about: Waxing - The Procedure

When will the redness be completely gone after waxing?

Post-wax redness is like a temporary guest; it doesn't stay for long! Typically, the redness from waxing fades away quite quickly, often within a few minutes to a few hours. For those with sensitive skin, it might linger a bit longer, possibly until the next morning.

The duration of redness can vary based on your skin type and the area waxed. If it's your first time waxing, your skin might react a bit more, showing redness for a slightly longer period as it adjusts to this new hair removal method. But don't worry, this is completely normal and nothing to be concerned about.

To help your skin recover faster, you can follow a few simple steps:

  1. Wear Loose Clothing: Post-wax, opt for loose and comfortable clothing. Tight clothing can rub against the waxed area and prolong redness.
  2. Apply Cooling Products: Using aloe vera, an ice pack, or a post-wax cooling gel can soothe the skin and reduce redness.
  3. Avoid Heavy Lotions: Right after waxing, it's best to avoid thick lotions or heavily fragranced products, as they can irritate freshly waxed skin.

If you notice the redness persisting for more than a day, or if you experience severe irritation, it's a good idea to consult with a professional. At Pia Esthetics Day Spa, we're always here to help and provide advice for any post-waxing concerns you might have. Remember, a little redness is just a sign that you're on your way to smooth, hair-free skin!
