Waxing is an intimate experience but gratifying for many. We want our wax service, to be the best and for you to get the best results. It is recommend that you wax at regular intervals of 4-6 weeks.
This allows your hair growth to slow down and to maintain good results between treatments.
PRE WAXING CARE
This helps eliminate ingrowing hairs and removes dead skin cells leaving your skin prepared for a cleaner wax. Do this 24 hours before your wax treatment.
Let it grow!
If you are new to waxing or have shaved between treatments (naughty naughty) please let your hair grow for about 3-4 weeks or have at least a 1/4 inch of hair growth.
No sunbeds, saunas, hot tubs before your wax. We will also refuse your treatment if you have sunburn, even if it’s just a little bit pink. This is for your own safety and our reputation.
Skip the lotions & potions!
Do not apply self tanners, body sprays, deodorants or other topical creams before your appointment.
Wear loose clothing to prevent irritation after waxing. Them skinny jeans might look fab but the won’t half rub on your bikini line!
POST WAXING CARE
We all react differently to wax treatments. If this is your first time or you are a regular waxer, it is important to take precaution.
Exfoliate your skin on a regular basis, starting 48 hours after treatment. We have the amazing ‘RUFF STUFF’ for use on the whole body or wax:one CLEAR to treat ingrown hair available in salon. Moisturise daily.
Again avoid heat, for the first 48 hours after your wax. As waxing removes a layer of dead skin cells heat exposure can cause the skin to burn. So this means no sunbathing, sunbeds, saunas, steam rooms and hot tubs.
Also take cool baths or showers for the first 24 hours and avoid highly scented shower creams and soaps.
Avoid touching the treated area.
For 24 hours after treatment do not use perfumed/fragrant products such as deodorants or make-up on the areas that have been waxed.
Don’t go working up a sweat in the gym or partake in any hard exercise or sport for 24 hours.
Wear loose clothing to avoid friction and irritation in the waxed are.
Redness of the treated area is usual but you may apply an antiseptic cream or natural aloe vera to calm and soothe redness. You may also use a cool compress. In some cases you may experience a histamine reaction, this results in small red spots appearing on the skin. This will calm down but if it persists contact your GP or relevant healthcare professional.
If your skin is sensitive, waxing may result in minor breakouts. Waxing causes a temporary enlargement of the hair follicle that can allow bacteria residing on the skin to enter the enlarged follicles and cause skin infections. If an infection is noted it should be evaluated by the relevant healthcare professional or a GP.
We look forward to making you look and feel your best. Helping you to calm your soul and take a moment to forget about everything but yourself.
