3 Smart Tips to Know Before a Waxing, Rochester, New York


Waxing is one of the most popular salon services out there. Whether you are getting ready for your first wax or your fiftieth, there are a few tips you should know before coming into the salon. Mark and M.E. in Rochester, NY, is a full-service salon with experience waxing all types of bodies—and body parts—on both men and women. They want to make sure your waxing experience is as comfortable as possible.

Here are three of their best tips on what to do before you come into the salon:

  • Shower & Scrub: Take a shower as close to your appointment as you can. The cleaner you are, the more thorough the technicians can be. Also, try using Mark and M.E.’s shower scrub to prep before your appointment and loosen any hair that might stick to the skin.  
  • waxingPrep for the Pain: Waxing will inevitably involve a bit of discomfort, but there are several steps that can be taken to control it. If you are worried about the pain associated with your wax, you can take an over-the-counter painkiller or apply one of Mark and M.E.’s numbing creams about an hour before your appointment.
  • Avoid Intoxication: While it might be tempting to take the edge off with a glass or two of alcohol, it doesn’t make the waxing less painful. Alcohol thins your blood and can lead to an increase in bruising after a wax—the same goes for overindulging the night before. If you can, try to avoid alcohol for at least a day before your appointment is scheduled.

If you are ready to schedule your next waxing or want to learn a bit more about the process, contact Mark and M.E. at (585) 473-7360. For more on this full-service salon including, hair, makeup and skin care information, visit them online.
