Waxing FAQ and Information

What is the difference between hot wax and strip wax?
Hot wax is used to treat sensitive areas of the body. It is applied thickly and when it has cooled down and hardened it is then removed. The benefit of this is that it is less traumatic to the skin, causes less hair breakage and ingrown hairs. Strip wax is applied thinly to an area and is then removed using a paper strip; this is suited for less dense hair growth and for larger areas.

Why is Lycon wax a less painful treatment?                
The application of specifically formulated treatment oil on the area provides a barrier protecting the skin. This allows the wax to shrink wrap around the hair so the skin is not pulled.

How long should my hair be?
For areas to be treated with hot wax the hair can be as short as 1mm and for strip wax 2mm. Everyone has their own hair growth cycle, but generally I am able to wax areas with hot wax a week after the last shave. For larger areas such as legs and arms a period of three weeks is recommended.  Don’t worry if an area has not been waxed or shaved for a while as I am able to trim the hair to the correct length for waxing.

What types or styles of bikini waxing do you offer?

Basic – The hair is removed from the top and sides of the bikini area.
G-string - as above but taken in further on the inside and on the top.
Brazilian - all the hair is removed from underneath and from on the area between the buttocks. A small landing strip is left on the front (as thin or wide as you like).
Hollywood – all hair removed..

Etiquette
I recommend for all treatments that the paper knickers provided are worn for hygiene reasons and to protect your underwear. For Brazilian and Hollywood waxes it is best if you don’t wear knickers. If you feel uncomfortable doing this then you can wear paper underwear, but please allow for a slightly longer treatment time.  

Can I still have a bikini wax if I am on my period?
This is not a problem; please make sure you apply a fresh tampon prior to treatment and that the string is tucked in.

Can I be waxed if I am pregnant?
Yes, Lycon products are safe to use whilst pregnant.

Is it painful?
Everyone has a different pain threshold, however over a period of time treatments should become less uncomfortable as hair growth becomes sparser. This elite wax has been specifically formulated to help minimise discomfort alongside an expert waxing technique.

How long will areas be hair free for?
It is normal to experience a small amount of re-growth after the first time of waxing. It generally takes four wax treatments for a hair growth cycle to be established, although this will vary from one person to another. It is recommended to have a four week gap between treatments to remain hair free.

Will there be any discomfort afterwards?
Any discomfort should be minimised due to the high quality wax used and correct application. After the treatment care is taken to make sure all wax residue is removed and soothing after care products are applied. There will be none of the stickiness associated with strip wax as this is not used for treating sensitive areas.

Now I’ve been waxed, what next?
Wear loose clothing
Do not apply perfumed products for 12-24 hours.
Do not apply deodorant for 12-24 hours.
Do not have a hot bath or shower for 12-24 hours.
Do not use a sun bed, sunbathe or have a tanning treatment 12-24 hours.
Avoid touching the area
Avoid sexual activity for 12-24 hours.
Avoid swimming in chlorinated pools for 12-24 hours.
Avoid any sport, gym or exercise for 12-24 hours.

Please note: Some soreness, redness and small bumps can be a common temporary reaction, which should subside within 24-48 hours. This is most likely to occur if it’s your first wax. If you have any queries regarding this, then please call the salon.
