About Waxing

Before Your Treatment
Let your hair grow out to at least 0.5-1cm long. This will guarantee the most effective result. For an even better result moisturise daily and exfoliate twice or three times a week. Don’t do anything to make your skin sensitive before your treatment i.e. sun beds. Most importantly don’t be embarrassed. We are specialists in the area and have waxed thousands of different body shapes and sizes.

At Your Treatment
If it’s your first time with us your therapist will do a quick consultation with you to ensure the best results.

After Your Treatment

Don’t forget to moisturise daily and exfoliate 2-3 times a week. If you are prone to ingrown hairs ask about our exfoliating products. Don’t shave in between waxes as it distorts the hair growth cycle. Wear loose preferably cotton clothing to allow your skin to breath. Come back for your next wax in 4-6 weeks, this is the recommended amount of time between waxes however it can be different for everyone please discuss with your therapist when to book your next appointment. So when its time to wax again give us a call, drop in, email or why not book before you leave
