Waxing is a form of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for four to six weeks, although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week due to some of their hair being on a different hair growth cycle . Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, pubic area, called bikini waxing, legs, arms, back , abdomen, knuckles and feet.
Strip waxing is accomplished by spreading a wax thinly over the skin. A paper strip is then applied and pressed firmly, adhering the strip to the wax and the wax to the skin. The strip is then pulled against the direction of hair growth, as parallel as possible to the skin to avoid trauma to the skin. This removes the wax along with the hair.

Please follow our guidelines below to ensure your skin is cared for properly over the next few days. You may experience some slight soreness, small bumps and redness, this is perfectly normal and only temporary, particularly if this is your first wax. These symptoms should subside over the next 24 – 48 hours. If you experience persistent redness or irritation, or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Keep the waxed area clean, and avoid heat and friction during the next 24 – 48 hours.
What to avoid for the first 24 hours
- Hot baths or showers (cool to lukewarm water only).
- Sauna’s, hot tubs, massage or steam treatments.
- Tanning, sunbathing, sun beds or fake tans.
- Sport activities, gym work or other exercise.
- Scratching or touching the treated area with unwashed hands.
- Wear clean, loose fitting clothing.
- Swimming in chlorinated pools.
- Applying deodorants, body sprays, powders, lotions or other products to the area, other than those recommended by your therapist.
To soothe and protect the skin, apply an antiseptic cream to the waxed area regularly for 3 days following your treatment. Always wash your hands before applying any product. To prevent ingrown hair, starting a few days after your appointment and then continuing a couple of times every week we recommend exfoliating the areas you have waxed using a dry brush or exfoliating mitt. Take the brush and just before you get into the bath or shower gently brush the area you get waxed whilst your skin and the brush is dry, alternatively use a mitt whilst you are in the bath or shower.
After you’ve bathed/showered, apply some baby oil or E45 lotion to the waxed area.
Moisturise every day to keep the skin supple and help new hairs to grow through normally. Don’t exfoliate too much or too rough as this can graze the skin and cause ingrown hairs.
You may notice a small amount of re growth after a week or so. It can take up to 4 treatments for your hair to get on a growth cycle that gives best results.
You will need at least 3-4 weeks growth of hair before it can be successfully removed by waxing. Please do not shave between your appointments. To maintain your smooth appearance, we recommend regular waxing every 4-6 weeks.
