A patch test is required at least 24 hours before having a tint treatment.


Take extra care of the waxed area, especially within the first 24 hours.

Ellen recommends using Australian Body Care Antiseptic Hand & Body Lotion daily and continue to use 3-4 days after treatment as it contains 5% Tea Tree oil and will eliminate bacteria for a longer period than other lotions.

Avoid sunbathing or sunbed treatments for 48 hours and also avoid hot baths (as the waxed areas will be sensitive to heat).

Avoid friction from nylon material or tight clothing.

Avoid using perfumed body lotions or creams in order to minimise any risk of infection and always wash your hands before applying any lotion (Ellen recommends Australian Body Care Antiseptic Hand Wash).
