Waxing from head to toe and everything in between.

CIREPIL WAX used for sensitive areas

  • CIREPIL is known internationally as the professional's choice for depilatory wax.
  • New formulas with the latest technology developed for effective waxing treatments.
  • Innovative shrink wrap technology surpasses all waxes on the market.




You use powerful exfoliators on your skin. Salicylic acid, alpha-hydroxy acid or enzymes all strip cells from the skin. It's all too much exfoliation combined with waxing, and could make skin red, bleed or even turn scabby. So stop using these products in the area getting waxed for 6 WEEKS BEFORE, and 1 WEEK after waxing.

You take blood thinners, have diabetes, phlebitis or want post- cancer hair growth in side-burn area removed. These all relate to medical conditions, so first get your doctor's approval before waxing.

You recently drank a lot of caffeine or alcohol. These stimulants in your system can cause skin to be extra sensitive to waxing, meaning you could get more red or inflamed than usual. Give yourself a couple hours after drinking coffee or alcohol before getting waxed.

You're pregnant, take birth control, hormone replacement or antibiotics. Your skin may be more sensitive to waxing, so it's best to have a patch test (like a small area on your arm) and see how your skin reacts for 24 hours before getting an entire eyebrow or leg wax.

Smokers or those with Rosacea. Waxing can irritate dilated capillaries (weak or broken blood vessels) which are commonly found on people with Rosacea and smokers. If the capillaries are very red, stay away from waxing in that area. 

When Not to Get Waxed:

You currently take Accutane, or have stopped taking it less than   a year ago. 

You use Retin-A. 

You have lupus or AIDS. 

You recently got Botox or collagen injections, waxing shouldn't be done in that area. 

You're in cancer therapy getting chemotherapy or radiation. 

Leg waxing if you have varicose veins. 

You have been in direct sunlight for a long period of time or tanning bed within the last 24 hours.
