I think it's a question of talking to your clients and showing them
the importance of aftercare (also giving them a sheet or a card with
instructions on it). You can put it to them as a choice good
aftercare with wrapping etc. to get a lovely, dark, long-lasting
design, or no aftercare or wrapping to get a faint, short-lived
design. It's a simple tradeoff.

I usually ask the person to hang out for 10-15 minutes or come back
in 10-15 minutes to get a lemon-sugar dabbing, and most people do
so. After that I give them a choice of sticking around for another
10 minutes for another dabbing and then some wrapping of their
choice, or just tell them how to wrap themselves (in my aftercare
instructions sheet). I also have a few choices for them: New Skin,
Final Seal (a makeup sealant), or liquid latex (not for bendy parts)
and then I put cotton over that and tape it down.

I think that all of this requires communication with your client. It
may take time and if you think that is a waste, just add a few
dollars to your prices to cover this extra time you spend with the
clients. I believe they appreciate it and will be more likely to
come back to you.
