Waxing is a semi-permanent method of hair removal, that is long lasting, and normally only is required every 4-6 weeks. Re-growth may occur after 2 weeks.
We use Lycon wax for our waxing treatments. Lycon wax is the leading brand in Australia, and is the best wax available on the market. The Lycon system makes waxing a luxury skin treatment, not just a hair removal treatment, by using luxury professional pre and post treatment products.
Lycon hot wax is unique as it doesn’t stick to the skin, causing less discomfort than regular wax. It also shrink wraps to the hair, ensuring all hairs are removed from the root, making the treatment last longer, preventing broken hairs.
Prior to the treatment
Before having a waxing treatment, please ensure you have left the hairs to grow, exfoliate the area the day before, to ensure all hairs are removed. Do not sunbathe or have any kind of heat treatment in the area to be waxed, (e.g. steam). Waxing will remove any fake tan that has been applied. Please advise your therapist if you are taking any medication, or using any creams that thin the skin, (e.g . for treatment of acne). Wear loose clothing to avoid discomfort.
Please follow the following advice for up to 24 hours or until the redness has disappeared:
Do not touch the area, and avoid perfumed products/make-up on the area.
Avoid sunbathing, and heat treatments, including hot baths and showers, and exercise.
Avoid application of fake tan. Ensure you exfoliate three times a week, and use a moisturiser daily to prevent ingrown hairs.
Lycon also offer specific products for the treatment, and prevention of in growing hairs.
Do not use any other hair removal method in between waxing treatments if possible.
