Q. Does waxing hurt? A. The sensation is similar to removing a plaster or being slapped with a plastic ruler: a momentary ouch! which quickly fades. Most clients find that the discomfort is nowhere near as bad as they had imagined. It is also worth mentioning that it gets easier with each subsequent waxing. Q. How long does the hair have to be? A. For the best results hair needs to be approx 2 – 3 mm in length. The longer the hair the more painful it will be, so you can trim before your appointment or we can trim for you. After the first wax as long as you do not shave between appointments you will find the second waxing to be much more comfortable. Q. How long will results last and how often should I be waxed? A. Everyone is different but on average you can expect between 3 to 5 weeks hair free skin. We recommended that initially you wax every 4 weeks to get on a growth cycle that gives the best results. After that you may find you can leave longer gaps. Continued waxing encourages slower softer, and in some cases sparser hair re-growth, and of course leaves the skin feeling silkily smooth, no nasty stubble as with shaving! Q. What do I need to do to prepare for waxing? A. Make sure your hair is not too long, 2-3mm is an ideal length, hair can be trimmed before waxing it necessary. Shower before your appointment and if possible gently ex-foliate the area to be waxed a few days beforehand to remove any dead skin cells and lift the hair. You may find it helps to take ibuprofen 20 minutes before your appointment (as long as it is medically OK to do so). Or you can apply a topical anaesthetic cream to the area to be waxed 30 – 45 minutes before treatment. If you are a female client schedule your waxing for the first 2 weeks after your cycle, as your sensitivity is much lower during this time. Avoid caffeine, stress and alcohol as these are stimulants and may make you more sensitive. Pregnancy can also increase sensitivity. Q. Why get waxed? A. There are many reasons for waxing.
