What to Expect Before and After Your Service

Before you take your waxing appointment at Rio Fever Wax and Beauty Spa in Marietta, Georgia, we highly suggest that you go over these important reminders. Following these will ensure that you enjoy the best results from your session.



Shower and lightly exfoliate your entire bikini area right before your appointment using warm water, not hot water. Make sure you are extra clean.

Let It Grow

You need some hair growth for the wax to hold onto, but not so long that it will make the waxing process hurt more than it needs to.

Reduce Acidity

Smoking and regular caffeine and alcohol consumption create a lot of acid in your body’s system. You might benefit from taking something like Tums 20 minutes before your service to reduce acidity and, consequently, skin sensitivity.

Post-Waxing Care

Fashion Choices

Do not wear tight pants or panties for the next few days.

Hands Off

Keep hands away from touching freshly waxed skin, as this can encourage irritation or small pimples.

Too Hot

Do not use tanning beds, saunas, or steam rooms for the next two days. Also, do not take a hot shower or bath for the rest of the day.


Two full days later, if you do not see any redness on the waxed area/s, use a mild exfoliator to help prevent the occurrence of ingrown hair. We recommend an Ayate washcloth, which gently exfoliates skin whether you use it on its own or with your favorite body wash. Another advantage is that it is more mold-resistant than loofahs.
