Fortunately, waxing is a quick and easy way to temporarily remove unwanted hair, and as an added bonus the results will bring a smile to even the most cynical of loved ones, excessive body hair is rarely attractive.

Why wax?

Personal reasons for waxing are as many and diverse as our customers, but here are a few benefits that clients have shared with us:

  • Being hair-free feels cleaner and more hygienic
  • Reduced body odour, particularly in summer
  • Sports related benefits for swimmers, athletes and cyclists
  • Improved appearance and enhanced muscle definition
  • Increased self-confidence
  • Partners prefer the smooth look
  • Waxing of intimate areas heightens sensitivity

Unlike shaving and hair removal creams, waxing removes hair by the root. This means it takes longer to grow back (we’re talking 2 or 3 months before your pelt has grown back to its pre-wax state) and re-growth is noticeably softer and sparser. No itchy stubble, long lasting results and fantastically smooth skin… what’s not to like?

What does waxing involve?

The area to be treated is coated with a thin layer of warm wax, which sticks to the hair and removes it by the root when pulled off. We use a combination of soft wax (removed with paper strips) and hard wax (which sets on the skin and is then peeled off by hand) for the most effective and comfortable treatment possible.

Will it hurt?

We’ve heard it said that the sensation is similar to being slapped with a elastic band an ouch that quickly fades. We specalise in hair removal for men and our highly skilled technician has been doing this for years as such, we know a few tricks to make sure it all goes smoothly. It also gets easier with every subsequent appointment.

Will it feel uncomfortable afterwards?

Some slight soreness and redness are common temporary reactions, particularly if this is your first wax. These should subside within a few hours, and many people find that regular waxing results in less irritation. It is not unusual for first time waxees to experience a few pimples on the chest and back – we recommend applying an antiseptic cream to the area for a few days after your treatment, which will help to soothe and protect the skin.

Are there any conditions that will prevent me from getting waxed?

Contagious skin conditions will prevent us from waxing the affected area until the condition has completely cleared. Clients taking Roaccutane must wait 6 months after finishing their medication before receiving a waxing treatment. We are also unable to remove hair from skin that is sunburnt, chafed or broken, or from skin that has been treated with steroid creams, Retin-A, Differin or other retinoid acne products within the last 3 months.

How should I prepare for my treatment?

Please shower before your appointment and, if possible, gently exfoliate the areas you are having waxed for a few days beforehand. This helps to remove any dead skin cells and lifts the hair.

Do not shave or use hair removal creams (e.g. Veet) on the area for at least 3 weeks prior to your appointment, as hair needs to be a minimum of ½ cm long in order to wax successfully. If you are already getting waxed on a regular basis, you will need to leave at least 4 weeks between treatments. We will do any necessary trimming for you on the day.

We suggest wearing a clean, loose-fitting t-shirt if having your back or chest waxed, loose trousers for leg waxing, and clean cotton underwear for all Brazilian waxing. In other words, don’t turn up in your sweaty gym kit and avoid clothing that rubs excessively.

How long will the treatment take?

This depends on the area being waxed and the density of hair. Eyebrows take about 10 minutes, legs 30-40 minutes, and a chest or back wax will take 10-20 minutes depending on hair growth. A first time Brazilian takes 30-45 minutes.

How should I care for my skin afterwards?

You must avoid heat and friction for at least 24 hours after your appointment. This means no hot baths or showers (washing with cool or lukewarm water is fine), no sunbathing, no saunas, hot tubs or steam rooms, no exercise, and no tight clothing that might cause excessive skin rubbing. You should also avoid swimming and the use of fragranced body lotions or sprays. We recommend applying an antiseptic cream (available from your therapist) to the freshly waxed area regularly for 3 days, to soothe and protect the skin. To help prevent ingrown hairs, scrub with a loofah or exfoliating mitt 3 times a week in the bath or shower, then follow with a light slick of moisturiser.

Can I book a massage, spray tan or sunbed after my wax?

We generally advise first time customers to wait a day or so before having a massage. You must leave at least 24 hours before tanning, which includes fake tanning and the use of UV sunbeds.

How long will the results last?

This varies from person to person. Unlike shaving or hair removal creams, waxing removes hair by the root so to maintain your smooth appearance, we recommend waxing regularly every 4 to 5 weeks.

What does body clippering involve?

If you need a bit of a tidy but just can’t bear the thought of waxing, then our clippering service may be the solution. We use professional trimmers to shorten excess body hair, resulting in a neat and natural looking finish that many people find an attractive alternative to full hair removal.
