Waxing

12 Ashfield Road, Liverpool, L170BZ

Waxing is the most effective way to remove unwanted hair from the body and, in addition, it is durable – the hair grows within 3-4 weeks. Waxing is far superior form of hair removal to shaving, depilatory creams and removes hair from the root meaning you stay hair free for longer! The hair will grow back softer and finer the more you do it. 

Whilst waxing is no guarantee against ingrowing hairs they are significantly reduced as opposed to shaving!!

Waxing removes dead epithelial cells (top layer of skin cells), meaning your skin will feel softer, smoother and not as dry. With good aftercare, exfoliation and moisturising you can prolong this smooth skin feeling in between waxes and your skin will thank you for it. The skin is the biggest organ in the body, it needs hydration and a bit of tender loving care, waxing gives you that, and aftercare is the maintenance.

What’s the difference between Hot Wax & Strip Wax?

Hot Wax (Peel-able wax) is essential for intimate waxing, we never use Strip wax (Warm Wax) on the Intimate areas -EVER! 

This wax is applied and removed without the need for a strip, it sets faster and gives a more comfortable waxing experience. Hot wax as a name is actually a misnomer as it is often kept at a lower temperature than warm wax. The wax shrink wraps the hair but without sticking fast to the skin. WE use hot wax on all sensitive areas including all facial waxing, underarm and intimate areas.

Warm Wax or Strip wax is applied to the skin and then removed with a paper/fabric strip. We use warm wax on vellus hairs only (softer/finer hair), legs, back, chest, stomach forearms & toes etc, as this is what it is designed for. Its stickier than hot wax but is great at its job in the right areas.

Can I get when waxed pregnant?

Yes, no problem, from the moment you know to the time you deliver, you can get booked in and that’s one less thing to worry about! (Unless your Doctor/OB/Midwife, has stated otherwise, and the same normal contra-indications apply.

How long does the hair have to be?

About 5mm! Please allow at least 3- 4 weeks growth for the best results. This is about the size of a grain of rice! (3 wks from last shave – weeks from last wax!)

Will there be any stubble in between?

If you are new to waxing the answer is yes. Hair follows a growth cycle, shaving disrupts that growth cycle. Therefore it is unavoidable as although we can get all the surface hairs (except ingrown & shorter than 1cm) We cannot control the hairs that are growing under the skin (new growth). However after a few months of waxing (usually 3-4) all the follicles will have their growth cycle synced and there shouldn’t be much after that.

Will it hurt?

It’s usually not as bad as your imagination thinks it will be! No waxing is ever pain free and those you promise a pain free wax  cannot guarantee that! A lot of clients comment that it wasn’t nearly as bad as they thought! For most newbies its usually most uncomfortable because your nervous or don’t know what to expect!  Everyone’s tolerance levels are different. Any discomfort quickly subsides and every wax is followed with a soothing and cooling after wax product. The more you wax the more you get used to it, the easier it becomes and its far less painful than the itchy regrowth of shaving! If you are pre-menstrual, hormonal, breast feeding, ill, stressed or even post-party this will all have an effect on sensitivity.

I have ingrowing hairs – what can I do?

Ingrown hairs are hairs that have curled round and grown back into the skin.  They often appear like small spots or pimples and you can sometimes even see the hair trapped under the skin. They are extremely irritating aren’t they! Prevention is certainly better than cure, so please follow all the aftercare advice on this website, which can be found on the Wellbeing page, you’ll also have written aftercare advice to take away with you after your appointment.

What to do before waxing

-Please exfoliate – a couple days before your appointment, this lifts the hair away from the skin and makes it easier and simpler to wax, also smooth skin gives better results and less ingrowns further down the line!

-Please shower on the day of your appointment.

 -If you are having a chest wax or back wax please bring a fresh cotton t-shirt with you to your appointment to wear home, as part of your aftercare.

-Please DO NOT trim!  It’s preferable that we do that for you – so you don’t trim too short and you get the best possible results from your treatment. If you trim (no matter how hairy you think you are!!) You risk us not being able to perform the treatment! Do not shave or use hair removal creams in between as well! Step away from the razor!

 -Please do not turn up sweaty from the gym!

 -Please do not turn up with a fresh spray tan -waxing removes the top layer of dead skin (epithelial) cells and any tanning products!

(Anyone booked in for an Intimate wax will receive an individually wrapped wipe ready to freshen up before the treatment; please do not take offence, this is just standard practice in our treatment room)

What to do after waxing (24-48 hours)

-Avoid all heat treatments including sunbathing, sun beds, steam baths and saunas.

-Avoid swimming in public pools as chlorine may irritate the area that has been waxed.

-Do not apply perfumed soap, body lotion, talcum powder or deodorant to the treated areas.

-Use only lukewarm water for a bath or shower.

-Do not apply make-up to any treated area.

-Try to avoid touching skin that has been waxed.

-Wear loose-fitting clothes.

-After waxing use any lotion in the first 24 hours.

-Start to exfoliate and moisturise your skin 48 hours after you had the treatment done to prevent ingrowing hairs.

-Use antiseptic cream on facial areas until redness subsides
