So how do we lighten skin at MetroWaxx? We are able to help you lighten your skin by using a multi-step, professional grade lightening product that doesn’t have any harsh chemicals. But it will not happen immediately. It can take up to 6 consecutive daily treatments, depending on skin darkening, darkened area, or skin ethnicity. So, what can I expect if I want to get this done?
For the best skin lightening results, you should have your skin waxed immediately before your first skin lightening treatment. Waxing will remove debris (dead skin) and hair that could be clogging up the hair follicle. This will open up the follicle so it is more accepting of the lightening product. Please book a wax for the same area you are needing lightened before your first treatment. For instance, if you want to have your underarms lightened, also schedule an underarm wax. If you don’t wax first, the product won’t work as well and it will take longer to get desired result.
Lightening your skin will take more than one treatment. Sorry, it not possible to know how many treatments you will need until we apply the first treatment. We will need to apply a treatment, see the result, and then we can advise on how many treatments you may need. Just as it took many months or years for you to acquire this darkness in the skin, getting rid of the darkness may take more than one treatment in combination with the at-home products to reinforce new lighter skin color.
At your first treatment at MetroWaxx, your service provider will advise you about a treatment schedule that works for you. It can take up to 6 consecutive daily treatments or more depending upon severity of darkening, area that is darkened, or skin ethnicity. (Yes, that could be 6 days in a row!) This is done with in salon services and our at-home products. Our salon products are professional grade and will provide the desired lightening faster. The at-home products help if you can’t make a treatment and will also help to maintain the desired lightening even after you are done with the salon treatments. Your service provider will provide you with the details.
Regardless of how many salon treatments you received, it is best to purchase our at-home products to maintain the consistency of skin color. Your skin darkened over time and will darken again if you don’t maintain it.
