Benefits of Waxing
Across the UK, male waxing has become the norm for hair free skin. Most common waxing areas to be treated are the eyebrows, back, chest and the legs. For the ladies it is eyebrows, under arms, legs and Hollywood/Bikini.
Waxing is a cheap, safe & temporary hair removal treatment. With regular treatments hair growth can become softer and sparse. No waxing treatment is ever pain free, the hair is removed from the root by a peelable hot wax that shrinks around the hair or a warm wax that is removed with a paper/fabric strip.

Waxing Aftercare Advice
After any wax treatment you may experience slight soreness, small bumps and redness.
Keep the waxed area clean, dry and avoid heat and friction for the first 24-48 hours.
To soothe and protect the skin, apply antiseptic cream twice a day for three days
Use an antibacterial skin wash to help prevent infection
Gently exfoliate the skin 2-3 times per week
Moisturise daily to keep the skin soft and supple. This will allow the new hairs to grow through the skin with out becoming trapped and causing an ingrown hair.
First time waxers may experience acne-like breakouts in the days that follow a treatment.
You may notice a small amount of regrowth after one week as it can take up to four regular waxing treatments to get a hair growth cycle that gives the best results.
