Waxing

Woman with beautiful legs Prior to the treatment, the therapist will cleanse the area using a specially formulated pre-cleansing lotion.

The therapist will then apply a high quality lavender cream warm wax and remove the unwanted hair.

You should ensure that the hair to be waxed is a minimum of around 0.75cm – 1cm so that the wax will take to the hair effectively. This is normally around 2 weeks post-shaving growth for most ladies or 4-6 weeks post waxing.

Once the waxing has been completed, a soothing lotion is applied to nourish and calm the skin helping it to recover  from the waxing treatment.

Waxing Aftercare

Take extra care of the waxed area for the first 24hours.

When a large number of hairs are removed the area will be vulnerable, and legs,  for example ,can pick up an infection if not cared for.

Avoid sunbathing, sunbed treatments, spray tans, and very hot baths for 48 hours as the waxed areas will be extra sensitive to heat. Avoid friction from nylon material or tight clothing.

Avoid using perfumed body lotions or creams.
