Summer is rapidly approaching, which means that your bikini waxing books will soon start filling up, and your clients are starting to dread their agonizing upcoming waxing appointments. Anesthesiologist Dr. Edna Ma, M.D., has found a way to make a painful procedure much less worrisome with BareEase & Cream, a pain-relieving hair removal prep kit. The BareEase & Cream kit includes a numbing cream and a latex panty that acts as an occlusive dressing to isolate the cream for better and more effective absorption pre-wax. This innovative combination of garment and medication is designed to make hair removal treatment an ouchless, safe, and convenient experience. something that is certain to garner loyalty from your thankful waxing customers.
Here are some other tips from Dr. Ma for you to pass along to your clients to help them ease the burn of bikini waxing:
- If you are not allergic to acetaminophin (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (ADVIL), take these about one to two hours prior to your treatment. These medications take longer to take effect, but decrease inflammation and pain for hours.
- Plan your bikini hair removal after your period.
- Trim the hair prior to waxing. For the procedure, keep the hair to ¼- ½ inch, this is the ideal length. If the hair is too long, it will be more painful. But if the hair is too short, the wax will not stick.
- Relax and breathe. Take a deep breath when the wax is applied, and exhale when she tugs off the strip.
I’m not one for leaving things until the last moment, that’s why I filed my taxes last month. Of course, the promise of a refund was another added incentive. However, that’s just me.
