Pre- Base waxing products why do we use them?

Pre-Waxing Products 
Preparation is the key to success!

Preparing the skin before waxing has several benefits. Importantly, pre-waxing care helps minimise discomfort during the procedure and offers the best waxing results that last for many weeks!

It is important to perform a thorough visual inspection of the area to be waxed to start the service – check for any contra-indications, signs of broken skin or inflammation. When a wound or open skin is detected, it is best to delay waxing until the skin is completely healed. Moles or beauty marks need to be identified so that measures are implemented to protect these during a waxing session. 

When waxing the bikini area, make sure that the skin in this region is cleaned thoroughly as waxing leaves the skin more prone to infection. Areas of the body that are naturally warm and moist are more vulnerable to bacterial growth and infection. 

Why Are Pre-Waxing Products so Important?

  • They cleanse the skin from dirt, cosmetic residues, bacteria, sweat, dust, and other outside elements.
  • They moisturise the follicle, unclog the pores, and prepare the skin, preventing uneven waxing and reduce the risk of infections, rashes, reddened skin, etc.
  • They make waxing less painful for the client and more efficient for the aesthetician.

The skin secretes an oily substance called sebum that comes from the sebaceous glands within the skin which make the skin waterproof and supple, as well as making the hair soft and shiny. The glands are part of the pilosebaceous unit, which consists of the hair follicle, hair shaft, and arrector pili muscles (the tiny little muscles responsible for goosebumps). “what does this have to do with waxing treatments” you ask?” Well, the oil secreted by the sebaceous glands makes it harder for the wax to adhere to the skin in the area to be waxed and remove all unwanted hairs, this causes an uneven wax result. When this happens, the therapist is forced to re-wax certain areas which runs the risk of removing some of your skin.

Pre-Waxing Care – What Are the Necessary ingredients?

Pre-Waxing: Once you check the length of the hair, you must cleanse it with natural based products and antioxidants like alcohol, menthol, Bacocalmine, and Keratoline. If a product is enriched with menthol it can provide a pleasant cooling effect, Pre-waxing Antiseptic Lotions thoroughly cleanse the skin from dirt, sweat, and dead cells. The skin must be completely dry before coming in contact with the wax.

DEPILEVE

Pre-waxing products

Depilève pre-depilatory lotions have been formulated to sanitise, disinfect and hydrate the skin before waxing and to improve the adherence of the wax to the hair and not to the skin, thus guaranteeing a quick and effective depilation.

Pre-depilatory products avoid revisions, with the consequent saving of product, allowing a faster work. In addition, they make waxing virtually painless while protecting the skin from irritation and infection.

PRE-WAXING OIL

This pre-depilatory oil acts as an effective barrier that effectively reduces the pain threshold and the sensation of heat with traditional hot waxes.

Its active ingredients include apricot oil, which creates a film between the skin and the wax, favouring its adherence to the hair and not to the skin; and bisabol, a soothing and moisturizing agent that prevents peeling of the skin.

Helpful tips

Use an exceedingly small amount, massage into the skin until it is absorbed and remove the excess with a tissue if necessary.

Helpful tips

It is applied with a light massage until completely absorbed.
