Waxing is a form of temporary hair removal which removes the hair from the follicle.
Hot wax is applied at a comfortable temperature to the hair while still in a liquid state. It dries almost instantly. When removed, it pulls the hair from the follicle thus removing it.
Areas most commonly waxed on women include eyebrows, upper lip, chin, and all other areas of the body on which hair grows with the exception of the bikini area for which we offer Laser Hair Removal.
Men tend to focus on the eyebrow, chest, back and upper arm areas for treatment.
When receiving a waxing treatment it is important that you observe the hygiene procedures followed by the therapist. The therapist wears disposable gloves for the treatment, which provides protection for everyone. A disposable wooden spatula is used to apply the hot wax for hygiene reasons as well.
We request that patients do not tan 72 hours (3 days) prior to their scheduled appointment and that they come to the waxing with freshly showered or clean skin that is free of product, chemicals and oil. If you have an allergy to latex or any other possible ingredients please make your Therapist aware of it ahead of time.
All hair should be no longer than 5mm at the time of waxing.
Avoid heat on the treated area and do not expose the area to ultra-violet light. After the treatment stay away from harsh chemicals to the area and try not to touch it unnecessarily. Tight fitting clothes may irritate the area shortly after the procedure, this sensitivity will eventually fade.
The effects will last for between 4 to 6 weeks on the body and up to 2 weeks on the face.
