Preparation for a Body Wax Service August 18, 2014 When planning on an upcoming visit to a salon that offers body wax services in Everett, there are a few advance techniques in order to make the experience more pleasant and effective. Professional body waxing is a great way to shed that unwanted hair quickly, and to receive longer lasting results which shaving at home cannot provide. Regardless if you are interested in your bikini line, legs, chin, or eyebrows, body waxing is a great way to create smoother skin fast, and eliminate the daily annoyance of shaving. Prior to any body waxing appointment, a few simple steps should be taken at home in order to receive the most positive and long lasting results possible. Approximately two days prior to your appointment, gently exfoliate the areas you are having waxed while in the shower in order to buff away any dead skin cells. Prior exfoliation will assist in avoiding any ingrown hairs or clogged pores which result in skin irritation and unsightly red areas. Try not to shave at least one week prior to your appointment. If possible, your targeted hair should be approximately 1/4 inch in length. Hair that is too short may not be able to effectively attach and be removed by the wax. Moisturize your skin thoroughly one day before your appointment to keep your skin hydrated, smooth, and luminous. Professional body waxing prevents hair follicles from returning better than any alternative method by removing the root of the hair, and not only what is seen at the surface. When completed properly, skin will be smooth and results last from three to six weeks! For body wax services in Everett, contact Le Visage Wellness Center & Spa at (425) 905-2410.
