Viral Infections

Fungal Infections

Miscellaneous

Skin Disorders

Medication

A doctors note is required if you take medication for the skin. i.e Retin A, Accutane, Steroids or any other medication which can thin the skin, as waxing could tear the skin.

Sunburn/Heat rash

If you have sunburn or heat rash from the sunbed or sun you will have to wait 24 hours until waxing can be carried out. As the skin would be very hot and the waxing would be very painful and may pull skin.

Diabetes

A doctors note is required as the skin is slow to heal and may have poor circulation along with blood sugar levels may need monitoring.

Varicose Veins

Doctors consent will be needed due to the vein being so close to the surface of the skin. Slight possibility the vein could rupture and cause bleeding.

Menstruation

During a woman's period the pain threshold is at its lowest immediately before and during her period. Hormones which stimulate the regrowth of hair are most active during this time. Providing you are happy to be waxed during your period I am happy to wax you, as long as you are aware the pain may be slightly higher than other times.

Self Tan

Waxing may cause your self tan to appear patchy.
