The Waxing Factor

It’s that time of year when many of us ditch the tights and leggings and dare to bare our legs. It can also herald the scramble to book a wax appointment. If you’re not sure that waxing is for you, we’ve highlighted below some of the benefits of waxing alongside details of the waxing products we use in our salons.

Advantages of waxing

Whether you want to get rid of unwanted hair on your legs, underarms, bikini area or other areas of your body, waxing offers a quick, easy and effective solution for smooth, hair-free skin for around 3-6 weeks. Regular waxing also helps reduce hair growth and the hair that does grow back is generally softer and finer.

Lycon Wax

Our highly trained beauty therapists in Sandgate use professional hot waxes from Lycon, which are popular with leading salons around the world as they are made from 100% natural ingredients, including the finest resins and aromatherapy oils.
These waxes are designed to be used at a low temperature and are fantastic at removing stubborn hair as short as 1mm. They can also be applied on the same area many times without hurting or causing irritation to your skin.
Our therapists also use Lycon pre and post waxing lotions to cleanse, protect, calm, nurture and restore your skin, helping it to look and feel fabulous.

Waxing treatments

We offer a range of waxing treatments for both men and women, including Eyebrow Shaping, underarm, bikini line, leg, chest and back. Click here for the full list and prices

Tips for skin care before and after waxing

For the best results, we advise that you do not expose your skin to direct sunlight for around 24 hours before your wax treatment or for 48 hours after it. It’s also best to avoid wearing tight clothing, having hot baths or using perfumed creams, lotions or body scrubs for 24 hours after your wax, as your skin will can be more sensitive straight after waxing.

If you have any questions on waxing, your therapist will be able to answer them directly, as well as offer advice on the best pre and post care for optimal results.
