Preparing for your treatment
Before you come for your waxing treatment please do not shave or trim your hair (the area you want waxed). In order for the wax to grip the hair it needs to be around 5 – 6mm in length. Its best not to have a fake tan for a few days before (or after), and try not to come straight from a hot shower.
Waxing is a very safe treatment however it cannot be done where there is sun burn, varicose veins, skin diseases, cuts and abrasions, chaffed or broken skin, warts or hairy moles. Skin that has been treated with steroid creams, Retin-A, Differin or other retinoid acne products within the last 3 months cannot be waxed. Those who are or have been taking Roaccutane must wait at least 6 months after finishing the course before a waxing treatment.
Once relaxed and on the beauty couch, the area to be waxed is cleansed with a pre-wax lotion, then warm wax is applied to the area, a paper strip pressed down and then quickly removed – its no worse then pulling a plaster off. The wax grips the hairs and when removed pulls them away with it. This is repeated across the area to be treated and once complete a soothing tea-tree lotion is applied to help calm the skin.
