Before and After the Wax: Amping Up Your Waxing Game with Pre- and Post-care Treatments

Waxing has gone through a number of changes and advancements over the years in an effort to make a once very uncomfortable service into a much more comfortable one. It continues to grow in its popularity as a reliable, quick, and efficient means of hair removal. Waxing also yields high margins, making it a profitable spa service and one that builds a loyal clientele by requiring clients to return every four to six weeks. Ensuring that clients are being offered the best possible experience, time and time again means maintaining a consistent waxing protocol from the moment the client walks through the door to the time that they leave. There are a number of key factors that contribute, such as friendly and welcoming front desk staff, explaining the products used during the service, and offering suggestions on take-home products that help clients maintain skin between visits.

Written by Lindsay Miller

With winter upon us, the cooler weather brings about cozy sweaters, long pants, and, often, little desire for clients to keep up with their waxing services.

10 Things to Do to Stay Healthy in the Treatment Room

10 Things to Do to Stay Healthy in the Treatment Room

  1. Wash your hands. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth if your hands haven’t been washed completely.
  2. Adjust the facial bed and chair to be ergonomically correct. Hips and knees should be at a 90° angle. With both facials and waxing, your shoulders should be relaxed and in line with your hips. Support your body with core strength, not your back.
  3. Follow manufacturer’s directions for equipment use and maintenance. Clean steamers; keep proper filters and covers on microdermabrasion machines; replace frayed cords, and dry hands before touching any electrical appliances.
  4. Autoclaves also require regular maintenance.
    Wear gloves. Do this while performing extractions, waxing and chemical peels to prevent cross-contamination and over-sensitizing your hands.
  5. Prepare your United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-registered disinfectant per manufacturer directions. Use tongs or gloves to submerge and remove tools to avoid chemical splashing and contamination.
  6. Maintain a protective barrier between you and the client during extractions. For example, use a magnification lamp.
  7. Drink water. Keep it in a closed container to keep debris and product from entering your water.
  8. Refuel. Fitness expert and owner Ashley Selman of Evolution Trainers recommends: “Refuel with healthy snacks, such as almonds, apples, protein shakes, hard-boiled eggs and low-sugar Greek yogurt in between clients. This will help to stabilize your blood sugar and avoid excess insulin spikes, which leads to belly fat, and maintain your energy throughout the day.”
  9. Stretch. Counter-balance the motions you’re using in the treatment room by stretching.
  10. Practice proactive measures. These include taking multivitamins, getting plenty of sleep, scheduling a flu shot and participating in 20–30 minutes of physical activity each day.
