Here are some commonly asked questions about waxing, of course starting with the first one everyone asks:

Does it hurt?

A little! But not as much as you’d expect.

Are guys really being waxed?

Yes they are! The girls have known about the advantages of waxing for years, and guys are now starting to take advantage of the benefits of it, of all ages!

Is waxing suitable for everyone?

Waxing is a very safe treatment however it cannot be done where there is sun burn, varicose veins, skin diseases, cuts and abrasions, chaffed or broken skin, warts or hairy moles. If you suffer from oversensitive skin, peripheral artery disease, peripheral neuropathy or diabetes you should consult your G.P or a health professional before being waxed.

Skin that has been treated with steroid creams, Retin-A, Differin or other retinoid acne products within the last 3 months cannot be waxed. Those who are or have been taking Roaccutane must wait at least 6 months after finishing the course before a waxing treatment.

What is the best hair length for waxing?

The optimum hair length for waxing is 1/4 inch (6mm), if your hair is longer then this then when you come for the treatment I will use some clippers to cut it down to length. Please do not shave before a treatment!

What should I wear to my treatment?

A loose cotton t-shirt should be worn to avoid any aggravation to the skin after your treatment, if for legs some loose trousers. If you’re having your Speedo line done I’d suggest bringing some clean underwear, preferably boxers or something not too tight.

How can I avoid in-growing hairs?

Exfoliate the skin thoroughly to remove dead skin cells. Moisturise the skin every day. If the skin is supple new growth can break through more easily reducing the risk of ingrowing hairs and infection. You can see some more information on our Waxing Aftercare page.
