Wax- a best method of hair removal

Hot wax is a mixture of beeswax and resin which is applied on the skin and removed by flicking and pulling without the need of a strip. New ingredients make this particular wax even more pliable and less likely to stick to the skin, ensuring a far less painful experience with no lasting discomfort. This is our chosen waxing technique for all intimate and sensitive areas. Sam is trained to use this method in South Africa in 1989 and has been using it ever since, that is more than 25 years of waxing experience.

Hair in the waxed areas re-grows lighter and more sparse and slower. After your first wax, the results can last up to 4 to 6 weeks depending on the individual's hair re-growth. In most cases, hair growth is minimal during the first week or two and noticeably increases in the third and fourth week at which point you should be thinking of making another appointment. Failure to do so will only make your hair longer and the next session will not be easier than the first. 
Your body adjusts with continued waxing so each session becomes less painful and is finished more rapidly. Heat stimulates hair growth; therefore hair grows quicker in the summer than in the winter.

With regular waxing, the length of time between treatments will increase. Re-growth will be finer, thinner and slower. Eventually, hair growth may stop in patches depending upon the density of the hair.

If you are looking for a whole body wax, it can take up to three hours or more. The after effect of waxing can be a red and pimply rash, so have it done at least 3 days before any hot date. Each visit becomes easier, and you'll learn to turn the trip to see us into something to actually look forward to.

We aim to provide a friendly and relaxed environment without a daunting receptionist and peach decor.
Treatments are performed in a hygienic, non-sexual environment. We will always do our best to accommodate all client's needs and times, by adapting working hours to your needs. By all means you can bring your own music or use the time to catch up on emails or texts, we do not mind.

For waxing of the more sensitive areas we recommend two strong pain killers half hour before you arrive. We say this because people have varying pain thresholds and it is just a precaution. We do not recommend Brazilian and full bikini wax for the ladies whilst you are menstruating or in the few days leading up to this time, as it is a very sensitive time where all feelings are heightened and waxing is more painful, however, we are happy to wax if you are.

Do not come for a wax if you are extremely hungover; generally the body is then dehydrated and the pores tend to be tighter. It is also advised not to come for a wax when you are dehydrated.

We are extremely flexible so be sure to drop us an e-mail should you want to request an area that might not appear on the pricelist, though we think we have covered most areas that are safe to be waxed.

If you are under the age of 16 you will need to be accompanied by a parent or a guardian. So if you think you might look younger, please bring an ID with you.

Aftercare and side effects

  • Most of them do not experience reactions beyond redness and minor irritation, but be aware of folliculitis if you are prone to it.
  • Some hairs may unfortunately break at the root during waxing, causing some hairs to grow out faster. This should become less with regular waxing.
  • Avoid the sun immediately after waxing and please wear sun screen; recently waxed areas are prone to hyper pigmentation (permanent darkening of the skin) if exposed to the sun.
  • Avoid heavy exercise for at least 24 hours after waxing. Avoid saunas, steam rooms, whirlpools and other heated sources for at least 48 hours. Do not use exfoliating products, body brush or a loofah for at least 24 hours after waxing.
  • Avoid tight clothing after waxing, especially in the waxed areas. Tight clothing may result in irritation and ingrown hairs.
  • Regular exfoliation may be helpful especially on leg and arm areas.
  • Routine waxing helps the skin get accustomed to the procedure and will help with skin being less irritated after future waxes.
  • All areas of the body that have been waxed should be cleaned with a body brush on a daily basis and moisturised to keep the skin vibrant and moisturised and minimise ingrown hairs. We highly recommend body brushes over loofahs to cope with ingrown hairs.
  • Waxing is more effective than shaving because it removes hair from the roots and not just from the skin's surface, which makes it ideal for holidays.

We want you to be safe

Some Medical Practitioners do not recommend waxing for persons suffering from diabetes or who have varicose veins or poor circulation as they are more susceptible to infection. A patch test could be done to ensure safety or a consultation with your GP might be an idea.
Waxing is never done on clients taking Accutane and is also not recommended for clients taking Retin A, Renova, Differin or other types of skin thinning acne medications. Please read the label carefully and consult your dermatologist if you are taking any medication or using any topical cream that contains these medications. Individuals do react differently to these medications and sometimes waxing can be done if proper patch testing is completed.
Also, please let us know if you are allergic to any food, we will avoid using these extracts on your skin.  Be completely honest with your beauty therapist about all allergies and medications you are taking - it is for your protection.  We are unable to wax clients who are in the first trimester of pregnancy but thereafter until 'birth' day is fine.

In addition to waxing, we also offer a wide range of permanent hair reduction treatments. Contact us today for more information.
