smoother than smooth
Full Range of Wax Treatments
Body waxing is not only the fashionable thing to do (we're showing our age here maybe) but also has a great number of benefits over other hair removal methods.
As waxing pulls hair from the root, the results are smoother and last longer than both shaving and hair removal creams. Following a wax, your skin will feel smoother for longer as your hairs may grow back more slowly and are of a finer texture. The negative aspects of shaving such as rashes, irritations, stubble and cuts that could leave scarring or discolouration are avoided with a routine waxing regime.
The effects of waxing can last 2-6 weeks depending on each individual's hair growth rate and how long the area has been waxed for. If you have not had a wax before, it can take up to 4 waxes before the hairs are trained to grow at the same rate and the optimum results of the waxing treatment are gained.
Warm wax is applied to the skin in a thin layer. A wax strip is applied, rubbed to ensure the hair embeds into the wax, the skin is stretched and the strip quickly pulled off in the opposite direction to the hair growth. You may be asked to assist in holding your skin tight when certain areas are being waxed. This helps keep your skin taut and minimises the discomfort for you.
Hot wax is applied in a thin layer and no strips are used for removal. This method is generally adopted for courser hair. Tweezers may also be used for delicate areas and stubborn stray hairs. If hairs in any area are longer than 2cm we may need to trim them prior to waxing.
We apply a pre-wax solution before the treatment begins. This cools the skin and is applied to sanitise the area. Following the wax, post-wax cream is applied to help reduce redness and cool the area. Dependent on the area to be waxed we may need you to be positioned in certain ways, however we will ensure your dignity is maintained at all times.
We will discuss each treatment with you and explain what we are doing to put you at ease throughout.
- Regular exfoliation prevents ingrown hairs and keeps skin looking healthy.
- Regular waxing accustoms the skin to the procedure and may minimise irritation. It also helps to train the hairs to grow at the optimum stages and lengthen the time needed between treatments.
- Ideally hairs should be between 0.5cm and 1cm long in order for the wax to remove them effectively.
- Avoid heat treatments for at least 24 hours following waxing.
- Avoid the sun immediately after waxing.
- Do not exfoliate for at least 24 hours after waxing as this may further irritate your skin. Following this time period, it is advisable to exfoliate twice weekly.
- Moisturise daily.
- Wear baggy clothing to reduce irritation and ingrown hair.
