Waxing


Waxing is a form of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hairs from the follicle. 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 this is because there are new hairs under the surface of the skin and some of the hair will be on a different human hair growth cycle. This can easily be prevented with regular waxing treatments. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, bikini, legs, arms and feet.

A skin test is required 48 hrs before your treatment – this is essential to ensure that you aren’t sensitive to wax.

Many of my clients experience a variety of benefits from having waxing regularly that have included:

  • Waxing lasts longer than shaving, with no cuts or nicks due from a razor.
  • No irritation to sensitive skin from shaving.
  • Hair comes back finer, silky soft legs and no itchy skin on legs when the hair starts to come back through.
  • With regular appointments waxing last  four to six weeks. Many weeks longer than shaving.

Each ingredient has been carefully selected for its skincare benefits to create a truly luxurious treatment.

WARM WAX

Strip waxing is accomplished by spreading a wax thinly over the skin. A paper strip is applied and pressed firmly, adhering the strip to the wax and the wax to the skin. The strip is then quickly ripped against the direction of hair growth, removing the wax along with the hair.

Peppermint Gelee Warm Wax has a high performance formula which is designed especially for extra-sensitive skin and is both rosin-free and tea tree-free. Perfect for use on larger treatment areas such as arms and legs, this warm wax is strong enough to comfortably remove hair whilst remaining gentle enough to be used on all areas, for an efficient and comfortable waxing experience. Ideal for using on arms, legs, toes, fingers, eyebrows, facial waxing including lip and chin.

    Leg wax

  • Applies smoothly and thinly, without dragging.
  • Non-sticky and leaves no residue which means you will use less strips during each treatment

  • Infused with protecting Echinacea.

HOT WAX

Working at a slightly higher temperature than normal “warm wax”, hot wax makes shorter and more stubborn hairs easier to remove and can be a much more comfortable way of removing hair. As it cools it becomes firmer contracting around the hairs, gripping them tightly. This waxing method is very beneficial to people who have Sensitive skin. Strip-less wax does not adhere to the skin as much as strip wax does, thus making it a good option for sensitive skin as finer hairs are more easily removed because the hard wax encapsulates the hair as it hardens. The strip-less waxing method can also be less painful.

Gold Film has a special film wax formula that applies like a warm wax yet performs like a hot wax, the Gold Film wax can be sheered across much larger surface areas than a traditional hot wax. Made with the highest grade of raw materials and ingredients, this film wax will remove hair as short as 1-2mm, comfortably. Spread over larger areas such as the legs for an indulgent alternative to traditional strip waxing, or apply in smaller sections for both facial and underarm treatments. Ideal for using on legs, arms, facial waxing including lip and chin. Also for underarms and bikini waxing.
