well, pretty much. I got my eyebrows waxed yesterday at a different place than normal. I thought everything was fine yesterday and then when I woke up this morning, I couldn't open my eyes. Think I should call the spa tomorrow?

oh my gosh...how horrible. Do you think it is an allergic reaction?
I would definately call the spa...and then maybe your doctor?

cold compresses in the meantime. Hope you can get the swelling down.

That's weird. :-\

Your eyelids are swollen too? Did the salon use a "calming lotion" after the waxing process was complete? If so, maybe you were allergic to the lotion??

Try some Benedryl. And yes, if your eyeslids are still swollen tomorrow, I would probably be giving them a call.

Feel better!

Ha, they're not completely swollen- Though I definitely won't be driving today.

I have the computer set up at a weird angle so I can see it. I have trial brief due this week- and my professor does not care if I had a traumatic spa experience or not :p

I'm off to try ice and benadryl! thanks for the suggestions!

Oh I know this feeling! I developed a reaction to Maybelline mascara. The entire eye area on both eyes swelled up like a balloon. I'd try the cold compresses, ice and benedryl as was suggested above.

Definitely call the spa and find out what products they use so you can avoid this in the future.

Feel better!

I had the same thing happen when I used a new salon for waxing. My face turned beat red and felt hot to touch. IT was awful. Luckily, it went away the next day.

When I told my regular wax girl, she said she had heard they reuse their wax. :-X Eww. Ick. Not sure what it was, but I never went back.


I hope you feel better quickly!
