Wax On, Wax Off: Everything You Need to Know About Professional Waxing Services

Smooth, silky skin is the ultimate goal for many people, but achieving it can be a challenge without the help of professional waxing services. At Waterloo Medical Cosmetics, our expert aestheticians are here to help you enjoy a fuzz-free, confident appearance. But why should you choose professional waxing over other hair removal methods, and what can you expect from your appointments? Let's dive in!

The Benefits of Professional Waxing

Long-lasting Results:

One of the main reasons people turn to professional waxing is the long-lasting results it provides. When hair is removed from the root, it takes much longer to grow back compared to shaving or using hair removal creams. This means you can enjoy smooth skin for weeks rather than days.

Minimal Irritation:

Waxing, when done by skilled professionals, can result in less irritation and fewer razor bumps compared to shaving. This is particularly beneficial for those with sensitive skin or who are prone to ingrown hairs.


Waxing allows for a high level of accuracy, making it ideal for shaping eyebrows or removing hair from smaller areas. A trained aesthetician can ensure that you achieve the exact look you desire.

Preparing for Your Waxing Appointment


To get the best possible results, gently exfoliate the area to be waxed 24-48 hours before your appointment. This will help remove dead skin cells and allow the wax to adhere more effectively to the hair.

Avoid Sun Exposure:

Keep the area to be waxed out of direct sunlight for at least 48 hours before your appointment to avoid irritation and skin damage.

What to Expect During Your Waxing Session


Your aesthetician will discuss your desired outcome and any concerns you may have before getting started. They will also assess your skin type and recommend the most suitable wax for your needs.

Wax Application:

The aesthetician will apply a thin layer of wax to your skin in the direction of hair growth, then press a cloth strip on top. They will then quickly and efficiently remove the strip in the opposite direction of the hair growth, taking the hair with it.

Soothing Aftercare:

After the waxing process is complete, the aesthetician may apply a soothing lotion or oil to help calm any redness or irritation.

Things to Keep in Mind Post-Waxing

Avoid Sun Exposure:

Stay out of the sun for at least 48 hours after your waxing appointment to prevent skin sensitivity, irritation, or sunburn.

Avoid Excessive Heat:

Wait 24 hours before taking hot baths, showers, or using saunas to give your skin a chance to heal and avoid irritation.

Delay Exfoliation:

Wait 2-3 days before exfoliating the waxed area to prevent irritation and skin damage.
