Why is it important to make sure your waxing technician is a licensed aesthetician with a current license? Because, when hot wax is being applied to your tender skin, a pro should be involved!! Most people only focus on their brows, but making sure you’re visiting a sanitary brow bar is even more important, because you can walk away with more than just a shaping. Here’s the skinny…
- Look for a bar that uses a cream-based wax to avoid ripping off skin and burns. Most cream-based waxes like Boom Boom Flash Wax can be kept at a lower temperature to avoid accidents.
- Make sure skin is sanitized before service to prevent infection and an antibacterial ointment is applied after to seal the open area with antibiotics to prevent infection. Waxing pulls hair out from the root leaving the follicle open, so sanitization is key!
- Every time a stick is dipped into wax, it should be a clean new stick, period, otherwise there is a chance for bacteria to spread, no double dippin’!
- Anti-aging and anti-acne products compromise the integrity of skin and should not be waxed, tweezing is the way to go.
If you’ve been burned or do get an infection, clean the area and apply bacitracin ointment for three days.
