Following on from my recent post about skin lifting… how do you inform a client about wax injuries?
It’s enough to make any therapist’s heart sink: you pull a strip of wax off and realise with horror that it’s left behind a nice, shiny graze or a big ol’ bruise.
Welcome to the club! Take comfort in the knowledge that you’re not the first person this has happened to and you certainly won’t be the last.

The sun has got his hat on, hip-hip-hip hooray… and the waxing clients are coming out to play. Keep your cool (geddit?) with these quick tips for sunny days.

Skin lifting is usually pretty easy to spot in the treatment room: a red mark or shiny pink patch of tender skin is a sign that the uppermost layers of the epidermis have been removed by the wax, resulting in a superficial graze. Sometimes, however, lifting only becomes apparent once the client has left our care and we get a panicked phone call or email the next day.
Minor grazes of this nature will generally heal very quickly – they’ll stay pink for a day or two and then either ‘dry peel’ (like sunburn) or form a scab, with no lasting signs of injury. The process can be helped along by applying an antiseptic cream at home and avoiding UV exposure of the affected area until healed.

Wax Daddy loves… Scrummi Spa disposables.
Laundry: a necessary evil? Time-consuming, costly and not terribly friendly to the environment. Well, not any more!

Today's topic of conversation: pre-wax intimate wipes. Oh the glamour.
I provide wipes for all of my intimate waxing clients to use prior to their treatment. It doesn’t matter if they have come straight from the shower or spent all day climbing mountains - if it’s a hot sunny day, they’ve rushed to get to the appointment or are feeling a little nervous, everyone gets a bit sweaty in these situations and the opportunity to freshen up before their wax is appreciated by many clients.
Perhaps more to the point, it’s also appreciated by me, as I'm the person about to spend the next 20 minutes within sniffing distance of their bits and bobs.
