BACK AND SHOULDER WAXING
Waxing of the Back and Shoulders is a great way to remove unwanted hair on the back and shoulder area. We try to make the procedure quick and easy as to minimize any discomfort you may feel. Though certain areas on the back can be more sensitive than others overall any discomfort or pain is temporary. The area is thoroughly prepped and powdered to ensure a quick and easy detachment from the skin. The procedure generally last about 20-30 minutes and generally the results last for about 3-4 weeks though clients can come in every 2 weeks if they choose to.
The treated area is generally a little red and sensitive for the first day and small red bumps may appear within the first few days. Some clients may experience a mild breakout but this can be effectively treated with a topical lotion that Palmer Skincare carries. Otherwise the skin is left feeling smooth, clean and fresh. Each person is different and the skin tends to toughen up after a few treatments.
What not to do before and after a wax?
Do not shave or clip the desired area. If the hair is less than a ¼ inch the wax will not be able to pull the hair effectively.
Avoid direct sun exposure for at least one day as the skin is technically newly exfoliated and will be more sensitive to UVA/UVB sunlight.
Do not engage in physical exercise that will induce heavy perspiration and sweating. After a wax the pores are open and excessive sweat may lead to irritation and clogging of the pores.
