AFTERCARE ADVICE

1. For Nail Enhancement

a. Be gentle until the acrylic is fully hardened

You are advised to be gentle with your acrylic nails for the first 24-48 hours after they are applied. Although liquid & powder acrylic nails dry in minutes, they are not very strong until the bonding process has been completed. Oxygen can hinder the speed of the drying process so by using a cuticle oil, you can help seal the nails and speed up the curing process. Clients should use cuticle oil at as part of their nail care routine at home to keep the natural nail healthy.

b. Always remove acrylic nails properly

You are advised to remove your nails correctly with acetone nail remover. You may be able to pull off your nail, but you will certainly damage the health and quality of your natural nail.

c. Use suitable moisturisers to prevent lifting

You are advised not to use moisturiser, sun cream or tanning products which contain Lanolin or Mineral Oil. These will cause acrylics to weaken and ‘lift’.

If there are any signs of lifting or damage to the nails, it is important to advise your client to speak to you as soon as possible. Water and bacteria can accumulate under lifted nails and the effects are not very nice!

d. Maintain acrylics every 2 weeks

Finally, you are advised to have your infills or re-balance done regularly to keep your acrylic nails looking perfectly immaculate. The full set should be completely replaced at least every 6 months.

2. For Waxing Service

  • Apply Aloe Gel regularly to the treated area this will soothe, calm and re hydrate the skin.

  • Avoid wearing tight restrictive clothing (i.e. leggings, tights, and jeans) over the waxed area for 24 hours. A clean loose cotton shirt is always best worn after chest or back waxing.

  • Avoid heat ultraviolet treatments and hot baths for 24 hours following treatment.

  • Avoid touching or scratching the area to avoid infecting the open follicles.

  • Avoid clubbing, gyms, exercise, swimming pools, Jacuzzis and spas, self-tanning products, body lotions, soaps, deodorants, anti-perspirant, perfumes, talcum powder and make-up on the treated area.Also, avoid exfoliating creams and loofahs.

  • Protect your skin from UVA and UVB. Do not expose the waxed area to a sunbed treatment or direct sunlight, or use solariums or saunas as sweat can infect open follicles and heat can irritate the area.

  • A bath or shower may irritate the skin during the first 24 hours. On the day of your treatment and as close as possible to your treatment time, we recommend you shower and exfoliate the skin before your wax treatment.

  • Redness and tingling of the skin is normal to experience after waxing, however if this redness and irritation does not disappear within 48 hours or any skin problems post treatment please contact the Beauti Spa 02086171414 or info@beautispa.co.uk

  • For clients previously shaving over a long period of time; after your first and second wax treatments there will be a re-growth of old shaved hair during the next couple of weeks due to the old shaved hair still growing through.

  • For in-growing hairs exfoliate every 4-7 days with  body scrub, starting 2–3 days after the wax treatment followed by moisturiser
