WHAT WILL HAPPEN POST TREATMENT?

The treatment should leave you with minimal discomfort. The waxed area will be left smooth, soft and hair-free. Some slight soreness, small bumps and redness are common and perfectly normal temporary reactions, particularly if this is your first wax. These symptoms should subside over 24-48 hours and lessen with each subsequent wax treatment.

 

WAXING AFTER-CARE

Try to avoid:

  • No hot showers or baths for 24 hours 

  • No sun beds or sun exposure for 24 hours 

  • No excessive perspiration for 24 hours e.g. gym, swimming etc. 

  • No fake tan, moisturisers or deodorants for 24 hours 

  • Do not shave or epilate in between waxes 

 

Things to do:

  • Gently exfoliate the area after 48hrs 

  • Have regular waxes (every 6 weeks). Your hair will thin in the area over time

  • Use our Waxperts Wonder Pads (or similar exfoliants) daily to prevent ingrown hairs & retain smooth flawless skin

 

HOW SAFE IS WAXING?

Waxing is a safe, hygienic and effective way to remove hair. We do not ‘double dip’ spatulas in our waxing pots, so you can be assured of hygiene.

I'M PREGNANT, CAN I STILL HAVE A HOLLYWOOD?

Absolutely. Your therapist will go through everything you need to know during your pregnancy waxes.

About Waxing

We’re proud to offer full body waxing (including intimate waxing) for both females & males, in comfortable surroundings with experienced therapists. 

We use hot wax, which has been developed to be gentler on the skin than more traditional strip waxes & reduces the risk of reddening post treatment.

Waxing is a quick and effective method of hair removal and over time regular waxing may thin your hair or remove it completely.

 

WHAT IS HOT WAX?

Hot wax is a peelable wax that wraps around the hair and allowed to dry slightly before being gently peeled away, lifting the hair up from the follicle.

 

This method pulls hair directly from the roots and offers several benefits including fewer in-grown hairs, less breakage and therefore longer re-growth periods. Hot wax also promotes skin hydration and is highly recommended for sensitive areas including intimate waxing.

 

For less sensitive areas we may use strip wax, your therapist will advise on the best method of hair removal. 

For the eye area we may also use threading. Our therapists will always look to using the best and most appropriate methods of hair removal for the required effect and skin type.

 

HOW LONG DOES MY HAIR HAVE TO BE?

Our hot wax can remove hair as short as 1mm in length and our strip wax can remove hair as short as 2mm however this generally applies to hair that has had regular waxing. If this is your first wax or a wax between shaving then we suggest a 4mm growth, approximately the size of a grain of rice.

 

DO I NEED TO DO ANYTHING PRE-TREATMENT?

A few days before your appointment we recommend that you exfoliate the area. On the day of your wax do not moisturise, apply deodorants or have any hot showers or heat based treatments.

 

DO YOU OFFER INTIMATE WAXING?

Our therapists are pleased to offer all intimate waxing treatment options. Including, Hollywood (all off), Brazilian (leave a strip of hair at the front), Bikini line, Inbetweenie & male intimate waxing.

With Hollywood waxing we remove all hair from the pubic area, including labia & bottom area.

 

With Brazilian waxing we leave a strip of hair (or triangle) on the pubic area and remove all hair from the labia and bottom area.

 

We are also happy to provide male intimate waxing as part of our services, removing all pubic hair, including bottom area and testicles.

Please read our blog for more info on Intimate waxing, read our blog: 5 Reasons to Have a Hollywood.

 

DOES WAXING HURT?

Everyone has a different pain threshold and so waxing experiences differ greatly from person to person. Most waxing clients, however, find the treatment more and more comfortable as the hairs become thinner, lighter and sparser with regular waxing treatments. Our therapists are expertly trained and experienced, making waxing as pain-free as possible.

 

HOW LONG WILL I REMAIN HAIR FREE?

You may notice a small amount of regrowth after a week or so. However it can take up to 4 treatments for your hair to get on a growth cycle that gives best results. To maintain your smooth appearance, we recommend regular waxing every 4-6 weeks.
