Before & After Care Instructions

We take the delivery of our treatments seriously. To ensure the efficacy and safety of your next treatment, please take a moment to read our pre-treatment and post-treatment care guides.


Preparation of your Waxing Appointment

  • Make sure your hair is long enough to be removed completely from the roots. That means it should be at least 0.5cm. If you have been shaving, it may take a couple of waxing appointments for your hair to get into a cycle of growth that allows the most effective wax removal finish.
  • Exfoliation plays a vital part in hair removal. Exfoliating prior to your waxing appointment helps lift any dead skin cells and aids in releasing any trapped hair follicles under the skin. Exfoliation also helps in the reduction of ingrown hairs.

After Care for your Waxing

  • After your waxing appointment, it is normal and common for there to be some redness and a prickly heat rash. This should disappear after a few hours and is normally due to a histamine reaction after the hair removal.
  • Waxing removes the hair at the root so it is important that you keep the area clean and bacteria free to avoid any chance of infection. This includes avoiding the following for the initial 24 hrs after waxing; swimming in a chlorinated pool, sunbathing, use of spa baths/saunas, applying any topical lotions including fragrances and other lubricants.
  • As your skin closes over the follicles, new softer hair can get trapped under the skin. Make sure you are exfoliating and gently buff the area every 2-3 days to avoid hair follicles getting trapped under the skin.


In Preparation of your Lash Lifting

  • Please come to your appointment without any eye makeup.
  • Avoid use of any harsh eye makeup removers or long-lasting products up to 48 hours before your appointment

  After Care for your Lash Lifting 

  • Do not use make up remover for 48 hours after your lash lift has been performed. They will strip the colour of the tint.
  • Avoid hot steamy showers and/or saunas, washing hair with shampoo and conditioner, make-up, eye creams or serums, any oil based skincare or haircare products for 24 hours after your appointment.
  • Avoid getting lashes wet for 24 hours.
  • Do not rub or play with lashes.
  • Use the mascara wand provided to keep brushing lashes in upward motions.


In Preparation of your Spray Tan

  • Exfoliate your entire body 24 hours before your spray tan appointment. This will ensure an even and longer tan life.
  • Come to your tan appointment without makeup, perfume, deodorant or any other body or beauty products on your skin. This will affect the skin and how your tan will develop. The same applies if you are sweaty- sweat/ moisturiser/make up and other products act as a barrier to the tan, and may also cause the tan to run, causing streaks or patches. It is recommended you arrive without any barrier on your skin.
  • Ensure all hair removal (shaving, waxing or laser) is completed at least 24 hours before your tanning appointment. Do not shave or wax on the day of your appointment.
  • Moisturise daily for a week leading up to your tan appointment. The end result of your tan depends on how hydrated your skin is before and after application.
  • Wear loose, baggy clothes that you don’t mind getting tan on to your appointment as tight clothing will rub against your skin and may cause patches. This includes wearing a bra.
  • Bring thongs to wear after your appointment, as shoes/socks will cause the tan to rub off or leave patches.

After Care for your Spray Tan

  • Do not get wet or sweaty before you are due to wash your tan off (be careful washing your hands as soap and water will wash away your tan, and any splashes will make it run.)
  • Do not put any products on your skin until after you have had your first shower or you will ruin your tan.
  • Colour wash off time: Light: 1 Hour, Medium: 2-3 Hours, Dark: 4-8 Hours.
  • Use only lukewarm water to rinse your tan off. No soap and definitely no shampooing or conditioning!
  • Do not rub your skin to dry yourself as you can rub your tan off. Simply pat your skin dry very gently
  • Once you are dry time to moisturise! At least twice a day as this will prolong your tan and keep your skin glowing!
  • Drink lots of water as this will help hydrate your skin from the inside.


In Preparation of Skin Treatments

  • If you are booked in for an advanced skin treatment your therapist will provide information pertaining to these treatments as we follow strict protocols for preparing your skin prior to these treatments.

After Care for Skin Treatments

  • You will continue to see further improvements in the days following the procedure.
  • To maximise results, follow a healthy skin care regime at home provided by your skin therapist.
  • Drink 8-12 glasses of water per day.
  • Apply hydration products regularly and as often as needed as recommence your usual skincare routine or the introduction of your new products as prescribed by your therapist.
  • Use a protective cream with sunscreen SPF 30. Allow 3-5 days before recommencing any use of chemical sunscreen.
  • Avoid sun exposure and all tanning products and machinery.
  • Avoid acid products Retin A, AHA’s (glycolic acid etc) and chemical peels for 3 weeks unless otherwise advised by your therapist.
  • Avoid saunas and chlorinated swimming pools and whirlpools the day of treatment.
  • Avoid waxing on the treated area for 48 hours.
  • On some occasions there may be a purging effect on the skin post an initial facial treatment. This can happen after the stimulation of the treatment and the products used in the facial can speed up the resurfacing process and bring up to the surface any underlying congestion. This should calm down after a couple of days. If it does continue, please contact the salon.
  • Ensure you book in for your next treatment in 4-6 weeks or according to your treatment plan as discussed with your therapist.


In Preparation of HIFU

HIFU is a safe and non-invasive treatment. However, not everyone is suitable for it. You will be asked to fill in health questionnaire and consent form to ascertain your suitability for this treatment. Before your HIFU treatment, check carefully the list of contraindications and confirm that you do not have any of these conditions.

(1) You will NOT be treated with HIFU if you have any of these medical conditions:

  • You are pregnant or likely that you are pregnant.
  • You are breast-feeding.
  • You have a history of:
  • cancer.
  • seizure.
  • keloid and hypertrophic scar formation.• hemorrhagic disorders or hemostatic dysfunction.

  • any other medical conditions that may restrict you from undergoing a HIFU treatment.
  • You are taking medications causing photosensitivity, both prescription and non-prescription.
  • You are taking blood thinning or anti-coagulant medications.
  • You have any dermal or metal implants, including chin implants
  • You have active infections or immunosuppression.

After Care for HIFU

There is no downtime after HIFU treatment and you can go back to work or resume most usual activities. However, some discomfort on the treated areas may be experienced. It is normal that the treated areas feel warm and tingly, are a bit dry or tight, turn rosy or are flushed or display mild bruises and swelling. These usually subside and disappear in a few hours to a few days. Aftercare is important to minimize the discomfort and boost the results of the treatment.

(1) Do not use hot water to shower or wash your face for 1 week. Cold or lukewarm water speed up recovery. If the treated areas feel hot or sensitive, apply a cold pack or some aloe vera gel.
(2) Apply good quality serum or moisturizer. Use moisturizing facial mask daily for 1-2 weeks to hydrate your face skin. Avoid skin care products containing active ingredients such as Retinol A, Vit C, AHAs, BHAs, etc.
(3) Avoid excessive sun exposure in the first month. Wear sunscreen with 30+SPF daily.
4) Avoid intensive exercise, sauna, steam room and massage for 1 week.
(5) Avoid alcohol to minimize the workload of your liver in detoxifying.
6) Keep drinking plenty of water to rehydrate your skin, help flushing out metabolic wastes, accelerate skin recovery, and enhance collagen production.
(7) Do not wax or exfoliate the treated areas for 1 week
8) Avoid laser treatments and Botox on the treated areas for 2 weeks.
(9) Avoid Filler on the treated areas for 4 weeks.
(10) Check with your therapist if you are going to undertake another treatment on the HIFU treated areas.
(11) Individual reaction differs. Seek medical advice if negative symptoms persist.
(12) Most people see results right after the treatment. The best result comes after 3 months and re-generation of collagen will continue for up to 6 months. Be patient as time is needed to give your skin a new life.
