Strip & Rip Waxing Studio – Contraindications for Waxing:

If you are taking any medications, topically or orally, it is your responsibility to check with your healthcare provider if there are any contra-indications.  

The following is a list of currently known acne and anti-aging medications that are a big no-no to waxing services.  Ideally you should be clear of them for 3 months. (12 months for Accutane)

  • Accutane
  • Avage
  • Isotretinoin
  • Tazarac
  • Adapalene
  • Avita
  • Renova
  • Tazarotene

The following topical medications also thin the skin and can lead to complications with waxing, please advise if you use any of these in the area to be waxed.
  • OTC Topical acne lotions
  • Bleaching agents for hair (used mostly for upper lip, eg. Jolene)
  • Bleaching agents for pigmentation of skin (Hydraquinone, Trilumena)
  • Previous chemical depilatories such as Nair
  • Benzoyl Peroxide (ProActive)
  • Alpha Hydroxy Acids (Glycolic, Lactic)

  • Salicylic Acid, or any chemical or manual exfoliant.
If you have sunburn, have recently undergone laser resurfacing or a chemical peel, your skin has suffered enough trauma... Please schedule your appointment for another week.

Dry, dehydrated skin needs special attention and does not respond well to waxing.  In most cases a patch test will be performed and the service will proceed with caution subject to lifting and tears.

If you are in any doubt please don’t hesitate to ask!
