For the face area, we can not wax you if you have been using any retinol or alpha hydroxy products in the last seven days. Retin A, Renova, Differin, Salicylic Acid, Glycolic Acid, Tazorac, Proactive, etc. All of these mentioned can enhance skin sensitivity that can lead to lifting of the skin.
If you have been using Accutane we can’t wax you anywhere. You should be off of this medication for at least one year.
Waxing is not recommended if you have a weakened immune system, diabetes, if you are on blood thinners or are currently undergoing treatments for cancer.
