Woman with Hand on Face

The following precautions should be considered with all hair removal services:

  • Sunburned or irritated areas cannot be waxed or sugared.

  • Waxing or sugaring cannot be performed if you have had laser skin resurfacing or a physician administered peel within the past year.

  • It is recommended you wait 3 months after using a Retin-A product and 12 months after using an Accutane product before waxing/sugaring.


  • You must wait a minimum of 7 days before waxing or sugaring after a light chemical peel or microdermabrasion.


  • Avoid the sun for 12 hours following a waxing/sugaring treatment. For facial waxing, be sure to use a hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic sunscreen.


  • Avoid standing water, such as baths, pools and hot tubs 24 hours after waxing.


  • Avoid exfoliating....hairs. "We suggest using an exfoliating body glove or cloth. Avoid salt and sugar scrubs as they may be too abrasive and cause the skin to react.


  • Avoid deodorant for 24 hours following an underarm waxing treatment. We suggest you use a feminine powder, like Vagisil or Massengill, as it is designed to control odor and absorb moisture.


  • Unfortunately, minor reactions can happen. Contact us first before searching the medicine cabinet for relief. Applying the wrong topical(s) can be detrimental to remedying the issue. However, if itching occurs, take a Benadryl before contacting us as this may be a sign of an allergic reaction. If the skin is flushed or red, Motrin will help reduce inflammation. Although it is rare, we suggest you seek medical attention for extreme allergic reactions.


  • Women may experience extra sensitivity before and during menses. "We suggest you wax the week after your menses, as you are the least sensitive  and will experience longer hair removal results. The increased hormones prior to your menses encourages hair growth.


  • Expecting mothers who have never had any waxing/sugaring bikini services should come within the first 3 months of pregnancy. Hair removal in later trimesters will be extremely uncomfortable due to the increased blood flow in the body. Dawning Tranquility will not wax or sugar any new client in their third trimester and reserve the right to deny services to ensure the safety of our clients.
