Certain oral drugs, like blood thinners and topical medications such as Accutane, Retin-A, Differin, and Retinol, can cause serious problems when waxing. Clients using such prescription medications may not be waxed and must wait the recommended amount of time before considering wax treatments. Clients who are diabetic or undergoing cancer treatment may also be unable to receive a waxing service.
It’s important for your hair be long enough in order to wax. Hair should be at least 1/4-1/2 inch long and not any longer than 1 inch.It’s important for your hair be long enough in order to wax. Hair should be at least 1/4-1/2 inch long and not any longer than 1 inch.
With each waxing visit, your sensitivity will become less and less as the hair becomes thinner and thinner. To acheive this, it is recommended you get on a regular waxing schedule. Clients who wax on a regular basis come in every 3-6 weeks, depending on their personal preference and hair growth.
Yes! Clients who wax on a regular basis notice a significant decrease in their hair growth and thickness. Waxing damages the hair’s folicle, causing the new hair growth to be much finer and far less. After long term waxing, it’s possible for some hair to never grow back however these results are not for everyone.
– No sun exposure to waxed skin for 12 hours after a waxing treatment.
– No hot baths for 24 hours after any body waxing treatment.
– No body scrubs for 24 hours after a waxing treatment.
TriPollar treatments use three or more electrodes, with the RF energy focused and centered between the three electrodes. This controls and limits the delivery of energy to the treatment area, for excellent efficacy results and immediate visible results from the 1st treatment. The focused energy also enables the use of relatively low power for tissue heating, resulting in a safe, pain-free, very pleasant treatment experience.
The objective of the procedure is to reach a skin temperature of between 40 and 42 C and maintain it for the indicated exposure time. The skin temperature is monitored throughout the procedure using the supplied non-contact infrared thermometer.
Clinical trials have demonstrated average reduced tummy circumference of 4.5 cm ± 2.7; average reduced thigh circumference of 2.4 cm ±2.0; average reduced buttocks circumference of 3.1 cm ±1.7; and average reduced arm circumference of 2.1 ± 0.7 cm.
In order to obtain positive clinical results it is important to reach the optimal combination of skin temperature and exposure time – the TriPollar endpoint. Once the required temperature is achieved the goal is to maintain that temperature for a few minutes, depending on the reaction of the skin and the size of the treatment area. Reaching the optimal temperature is sometimes accompanied by slight erythema and edema.
There is a possibility of erythema and edema appearing after the TriPollar treatment session. Typically, these symptoms are transient and will disappear within two hours. In rare cases, slight erythema and edema could persist for between 1 and 2 days. In case of excessive erythema or edema, soothing agents can be applied.
The TriPollar treatment selectively heats the fat cells in the deep and superficial adipose layers simultaneously. Heating the fat cells increases their natural metabolism, resulting in increased secretion of fatty acids into the surrounding extra-cellular space. The heating also increases the blood circulation in the area, accelerating metabolism that physically helps the blood and lymphatic system dispose of the fatty acids naturally.
There is a possibility of enhanced heat sensation near bony areas. This is because skin is thinner adjacent to bones. However this is tolerated well by patients.
There is no need to allow for cooling with TriPollar treatments. Pollogen has developed an electronic control mechanism that rotates between the three electrodes to prevent overheating of any one electrode. This makes it a safer treatment protocol.
Glycerin was found to be the most suitable material due to its high resistance to RF. It allows the RF to penetrate to the deep layers while protecting the epidermal layer from becoming overheated or harmed. Glycerin is also widely used in the cosmetics industry as a safe and beneficial component. Glycerin also helps the applicator glide comfortably over the skin and keeps it feeling cool.
OxyGeneo is an innovative technology for skin exfoliation (removal of dead skin cells from the skin surface), improving skin oxygen levels and infusion of essential nutrients to enrich the skin. The simultaneous skin exfoliation along with skin oxygenation optimizes the absorption of the valuable components in our nutrient-rich gels into the skin.
Treatment duration is up to 30 minutes. It may be extended at times as your practitioner might combine additional products and treatments in the same session.
No, You can resume your daily routine immediately after an OxyGeneo treatment and there is no need for special care. (We do advise to apply sunscreen to protect the skin)
An OxyGeneo™ session feels like a massage for the face. The exfoliation is described as very refreshing and comfortable. Many clients fall asleep and wake feeling rested and rejuvenated. Clients with sensitive skin may have a slight abrasive sensation during the session.
The session is suitable for women and men as both genders will benefit from the its outcome. (It is better if men do not shave on the day of the session).
After an OxyGeneo session your skin should feel smoother, fresher and look brighter with a more uniform tone. In addition you might notice a general improvement in skin texture and in fine lines appearance.
