Your skin will be more sensitive after waxing due to open pores. There may be some redness afterward. Your esthetician will usually cover your skin with baby powder or a lotion to sooth and protect the area. It is recommended that you gently clean the area with mild soap and water to ensure the area is clean. If you discover any sores or have pain, you need to let the esthetician know. Speak to your esthetician about further after care instructions.
