When it comes to hair removal treatments, waxing is one of the fastest and safest alternatives, but if the client has sensitive skin, which is prone to irritation, it is natural for them to be careful about the process in entirety

These clients may require more attention and extra care, but there is no need to despair of waxing as a viable option.

With the right preventative measures, post-care treatment and the best wax line, such as Gold Wax, you can wax sensitive skin and offer the best skin care treatment at the same time.

There are some obvious suggestions to letting you know if a person’s skin is very sensitive, but some symptoms can be difficult to identify when someone has been dealing with them long enough to see them as common occurrences.

Low water retention and fat production often result in sensitive skin and the consequences of this lack of natural hydration can vary from person to person.

To properly depilate sensitive skin, it is important to assess the general condition of the client's skin.

You should have a preliminary discussion with them including their skin response to external elements and the medications they take to reduce these problems.

Here are some important signs of sensitive skin that require special treatment measures:


Sensitive skin reddens during small temperature changes and tends to show red bumps on various parts of the body.


This is one of the most common consequences of sensitive skin.

The skin becomes irritated after coming in contact with certain surfaces or products.

Many creams and chemicals can cause severe redness on sensitive skin, causing sensations ranging from itching to slight burning.


Persistent acne-causing lesions make the skin more sensitive and the products used to treat these cracks can also pose a threat if a person plans to schedule a waxing session.


Sensitive skin responds poorly to UV rays, usually with some of the symptoms mentioned above.

Long periods of sun exposure can be detrimental to dry skin, so there are common cases where the skin appears cracked and begins to peel in some places.

It is important to look for signs, spots and scars in advance.

Wax is not an option if the skin has not healed.

This is why constant communication with the client is such an essential part of the whole process.

Care after waxing for sensitive skin

There are many things you can do to increase the comfort of the client for wax sensitive skin.

A good post-depilation lotion (like creams rich in healing properties) will help clients relax by soothing the sensitive area.

In addition, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant creams, will complement a quality waxing in reducing the risks of irritation.

Communication between the beautician and the client continues to be just as important after waxing.

Since we will not be around to make sure the client stays away from chemical cosmetics, swimming pools and sunlight, we emphasize in advance the importance of these precautions and remind them to maintain an irrigation / hydrating routine to hydrate / hydrate the skin.

As you can see, there are many alternatives to safely waxing sensitive skin.

With the right treatment, skin can easily remain smooth and healthy for a long time and clients can finally stop worrying about hair growth in unwanted places.
