Should I do anything before my waxing treatment?

Make sure the area to be waxed is clean. Do not put on lotion or any other product right before the waxing treatment. Additionally, certain medications and products cannot be taken if you are planning on having a waxing treatment, including:

  • Exfoliants such as retina-a, Renova, and hydroquinone
  • Oral acne medication such as Accutane
  • Blood-thinning medications
  • Topical or oral cortisone

Products like these increase the likelihood of irritation and other complications following your waxing.

Please let us know if you are unsure if you should be waxed while using medication.
