Skin Refine Medspa in Sunnyvale offers waxing services for both men and women. We offer our waxing clients both hard or soft wax. Skin Refine wants to give you the option to decide, but hard wax is our favorite! Hard wax feels smooth and warm when applied, and it is very gentle on the skin. After it is applied by our Esthetician it will cool down, and then it is quickly removed from one end to the other. Hard wax does not require strips like soft wax. It is more efficient and clients love it! After you try it you will see why we prefer it.
The intervals between waxing appointments are typically 3 to 5 weeks. Depending on the type of hair, the hair will begin to grow back after 2 to 3 weeks after the initial treatment. To receive a waxing treatment at Skin Refine Medspa we would like there to be at least ¼ inch of hair growth, so the wax will adhere properly to the unwanted hair. This is a way your waxing service will provide you the best result.
Before your waxing appointment please do not go swimming or shower at least 1-2 hours prior to the treatment. Please avoid the use of retinol products, AHA’s and BHA’s in the treatment area for a week. Please do not shave the area. Please avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for one week before and after.
After your waxing procedure, there may be some redness. We recommend Skin Refine Medspa’s Soothing Cream with Aloe Vera and Hydrocortisone to calm the skin. Please do not overheat the area or tan the area for one week after your wax appointment.
Although we do suggest exfoliating at least every other day, Skin Refine Medspa recommends that you wait for at least three days after your wax appointment to do any exfoliation around treatment. It is important to exfoliate your skin because it helps remove the build-up of dead skin cells that can clog the pores and help aid in the prevention of hairs from becoming trapped under the skin causing them to become ingrown. Please use one of our products to exfoliate. Listed below are the three products that we recommend, and you can buy them all at Skin Refine Medspa located in Sunnyvale.
- Cell Rejuvenating Pads – These pads have 2% Salicylic Acid and 5% Glycolic Acid
- SR Exfoliating Gel – This product will roll off any unwanted dead skin cells
- Algae Scrub – Exfoliating Jojoba beads that gently buff away unwanted skin cells
