It is also an expense that you incur once every few weeks, so you can easily budget this amount in your household budget.

To begin with, the length of the hair should be assessed, preferably between 0.5 and 1 cm. Then you can be sure that the specialist will remove every hair.
Take care of hygiene – safety is key
The basic thing before the treatment is to take care of hygiene of the area to be treated. A week before your planned hair removal treatment you should perform a peeling, which will smooth the skin and help in effective hair removal. Remember to leave a week between exfoliation and waxing as epilation cannot be performed on irritated skin. For the same reason, refrain from sunbathing, saunas and cosmetics containing fruit acids in the days before your appointment. It is not a good idea to epilate immediately after a professional beauty treatment. The rule is very simple – the skin treated with waxing should be cleansed of dead skin, smooth and healthy. Also give up oily creams, they will make it difficult for the wax to stick to the body. Waxing will be more effective and faster.
When should I cancel the treatment?
When making an appointment for a waxing treatment, it is advisable to check your menstrual cycle calendar. Avoid epilation during your period or a few days before. The skin is more delicate and prone to irritation and pain. It is best to decide for the treatment after the end of bleeding and up to 3 days before the start of the next one. Contraindications to epilation are also intimate infections and any wounds or cuts.
If you have moles or birthmarks on your skin, it’s a good idea to protect them with a patch to avoid irritation. If you’re planning on waxing before an important event, make sure you schedule it a few days in advance. Any redness will have time to subside and your skin will still be silky smooth.
