Wave good bye to irritated, red or bumpy skin after waxing.
You are in for a treat at your next appointment, you will experience gentle, thorough and virtually pain free waxing.
Best of all experience virtually no skin irritation so you can continue on with your day without the usual tell tale signs of redness and irritation after waxing.
This Wax has been taking the beauty industry by storm, so we are very excited to introduce this amazing range of treatments at G27 Hair & Beauty Lounge.
Ok so lets start at the beginning because if you do not know much about waxing it can get quite confusing.
There are 2 types of wax – Warm wax which is sometimes referred to as strip waxing, this wax is warm and is spread on your skin in the direction the hair is growing, a cotton or paper strip is placed on top and firmly pressed down, this is then removed by pulling the strip in the opposite direction of the hair growth, this is perfect for leg waxing, arm waxing, back waxing, and brows.
Then there is Hot wax, this is applied against the hair growth, it is left to cool for a minute then the end is flicked up and the wax removed again in the opposite direction of the hair growth, this is more suited for sensitive areas and skin ie Bikini, Underarm, Lip and Chin although you can use this for eyebrows also. The lavendar based wax uses the latest technology, with a low melting point it is perfect for even the most sensitive skin or strongest hair types.
Waxing is a semi-permanent method of hair removal; it removes the hair from the root. New hairs will not grow back on previously waxed areas for 2 to 6 weeks.
What makes Waxperts products different?
This new flexible hot wax system is revolutionary and unlike other hot wax, because it is flexible it does not crack or break, the wax is applied and as it dries it shrinks around the hair and lifts it up from the follicle, when it sets it is simply peeled off and that’s it your done! It is great for getting to grips with short stubborn hair and has a much lover melting point than other hot waxes so it is ideal for sensitive skin.
The cleanser contains chamomile for its antiseptic and disinfectant properties, Lavender for its anti inflammatory soothing and calming qualities, the prewax oil creates a protective barrier preparing the skin for waxing and also contains a lightweight Lavender base oil for a calming and soothing treatment, the post wax oil is a heavy weight Lavender based oil which soothes and moisturises as well as leaving a smooth finish and helps to prevent in growing hairs in between waxes.
Does waxing hurt?
Sometimes if it is your first wax then you may feel a slight discomfort but this will only last a few seconds, once you have been waxed the hair weakens so each time it becomes more comfortable, from personal experience for best results and a virtually pain free wax we would recommend a regular wax of every 4 weeks, it all depends on how fast your hair grows. We personaly recommend exfoliating areas like legs, arms, armpits regularly in between waxes and the run up to your next wax, keep your skin well moisturised before and after waxing. I would also avoid being waxed in the run up to your period as you may be more sensitive, and avoid caffine on the day of your wax!
I have never had a Bikini or Leg wax before, what can I expect?
Don’t be at all nervous at all! Our therapists are the best in the business and are totally professional – you are in safe hands!!
Prior to your treatment you will be asked to fill in a consultation form (please arrive 5mins earlier to do this for your first appointment with us. This form helps us to keep a record of your treatment and find out if you have any allergies and also gives us a good understanding of what you want. You will then be shown to a private treatment room where your therapist will explain which items of clothing need to be removed and where you need to sit/lie on the treatment couch, she will then leave the room in order for you to do this privately. The therapist will return and knock on the door come in and your treatment will begin.
My skin is very Sensitive will this be ok for me?
These products are perfect for sensitive skin, even those who don’t have sensitive skin can expect a little redness sometimes, they contain essential oil extracts from camomile and lavender If you are at all worried then please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have or arrange to have a complimentary test patch 24-48 hours before your treatment.
