waxing

Waxing is a fantastic way to keep hair at bay.  We use the wax in the targeted area to lift the hairs from the follicle, giving you smooth, hair free skin for up to 4-6 weeks, depending on the area waxed and your hair growth cycle.

We offer both warm wax and hot wax treatments.

If you are looking for a more permanent solution please also see our other hair removal solutions such as, electrolysis, IPL AND Diode Laser removal. We specialise in hair reduction and removal, giving you all available options to choose from!

Frequently asked questions

What will I need to do before my appointment?

Please make sure you have suitable growth on the area you be having your waxing.  Hairs need to be at least ¼ inch long to get the best result. If your hair is shorter than this it may be difficult to remove all the hairs.

Will I be able to go to work afterwards?

There is no down time after your waxing treatment. The area may feel slightly itchy afterwards but your would be able to resume all your natural duties immediately after your treatment

What can I do to prepare before my visit?

Wear loose fitting, comfortable clothing. It is a good idea to exfoliate for the week prior to your appointment if you are a regular waxer.

Treatment care

PRE-TREATMENT CARE

PRE-TREATMENT CARE

  • Trim the hair before your appointment. Longer hair can be more painful to wax.
  • Ensure your hair is at least 0.5cm long, so your beauty therapist can remove the hair without using a couple waxes. First time waxers should have hair growth of about 1.5cm.
  • Exfoliate the waxing area 24-48 hours before your appointment. This will keep the skin soft and smoother and prevent ingrown hairs.
  • Bath or shower on the day of your appointment to open up follicles, allowing for easier hair removal.
  • Do not apply any deodorants, make-up, lotions, soaps, powders, perfumes or self-tanning products to the area to be waxed.
  • You can take paracetamol about 30 minutes before your appointment if you have never had a wax before or find the process painful.
POST-TREATMENT CARE

After your waxing treatment, you may expect the area to be red, some may experience blood spots due to thicker, courser hair and the area may feel tender and tingle.

For the first 24 hours after a waxing service, avoid the following to prevent irritating the skin:

  • Touching or scratching the waxed area
  • Exfoliating the waxed area
  • We suggest you rather shower in a cold temperature. Ensure the water runs off the waxed area and you do not wash or scrub this area
  • Perspiration and friction on the waxed area
  • Sauna’s and stream rooms
  • Exercise, gyms and swimming
  • Sunbathing, sunbeds or any sunlight and UV exposure. Sweat can infect open follicles and heat can irritate the waxed area. Remember to book your wax 2 days before you go on holiday, to allow the follicles enough time to close and the skin to calm down
  • Applying products to the waxed area such as deodorants, make-up, lotions, soaps, powders, perfumes, self-tanning products etc.
  • Tight fitted clothing that may cause friction to the waxed area
  • To soothe and calm the skin we suggest regularly applying an Aloe Vera gel.
  • This will rehydrate the skin and sooth any distort you may experience. Tea tree oil can also be applied to the area for its anti-bacterial properties in ensuring the area remains bacteria free.
  • Remember, it is important to keep the area clean and dry for 48 hours after your appointment
