What to expect from a Kigali waxing treatment

09:00 11 December in Beauty tips, Kigali, Rwanda

Getting waxed. It is one of the burdens of being a woman – and often a man, too! But like anything painful in life, it can be a lot less painful if you are prepared for what’s in store. And if you know what to expect from your Kigali waxing experience, whether it’s your first time or your fortieth, it will be a lot more pleasant.

In this post we’ll explain how you can get ready before, what to expect during, and a few tips to bear in mind after your Kigali waxing treatment.

Getting ready for your wax

First of all, check your skin. Make sure there is no inflammation or broken skin, as this can be irritated by our Kigali waxing products. And if you have any moles, let your therapist know in advance so that she can protect them during the treatment.

Next, make sure there is sufficient hair growth before your appointment takes place. Two to three weeks of growth – or around a quarter of an inch – is ideal for leg, underarm and bikini waxes. Anything shorter means it’ll be hard for the wax to get a grip; anything longer can make your Kigali waxing experience a lot more painful!

Finally, keep the skin exfoliated and moisturised for the days leading up to your treatment. If you have a very low pain threshold, take an aspirin an hour before if you need to; but only as a last measure. Following the above advice and doing a little research in advance should make the wax as painless as possible to begin with.

During your Kigali waxing treatment

Tell your therapist any time you need to take a break and breathe deeply. Sometimes your therapist will ask you to press part of your skin away, like your upper thigh and lower abdomen, and to inhale right before the wax is pulled off. Exhaling deeply as this occurs can help you to relax.

Feel free to chat away if you like or to close your eyes and go to your ‘happy place’ – whatever works to make your Kigali waxing experience that little bit easier.

Plus, if your Kigali waxing treatment involves the bikini line, don’t be afraid to check your therapist’s work. Ask for a mirror and see if you’re happy with the results; if not, your therapist can remove extra hair until you get the shape you want.

Kigali waxing aftercare

It’s really important that you don’t bathe for up to 24 hours after any Kigali waxing session. This could irritate overly sensitive skin and cause rashes, pain and discomfort. Have a quick shower if you must but avoid using soaps and other chemicals on the treated area.

Waxing made easy

Hopefully now you won’t feel nervous about your next Kigali waxing appointment. Just remember to be prepared, to breathe deeply and to take care of your skin afterwards…and you’ll be a waxing pro in no time!
