When hair is shaved or removed by depilatory cream, the hair is removed
at the surface rather than the root. Within a few days, the hair can be
seen at the surface. With these methods, hair tends to grow back in a
rough stubble.

Waxing is a method of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the
hair from the root. New hairs will not grow back in the previously
waxed area for two to eight weeks. Almost any area of the body can be
waxed, including eyebrows, face, bikini area, legs, arms, back, abdomen
and feet

Waxing is accomplished by spreading a wax combination thinly over the
skin. A paper strip is then pressed on the top and ripped off with a
quick movement against the direction of hair growth . This removes the
wax along with the hair and dead skin cells, leaving the skin feeling

Waxing Aftercare

Keep the waxed area clean and avoid heat and friction during the next 24-48hrs, including:

•No hot baths or showers (cool to lukewarm water only).
•No saunas, hot tubs or steam treatments.
•No tanning (sunbathing, sun beds or fake tan).
•No sport, gym work or other exercise.
•Avoid scratching or touching the treated area with unwashed hands.
•Wear clean loose fitting clothes.
•Avoid swimming in chlorinated pools.
•Do not apply anti-perspirant, body sprays, powders, lotions or other products to the area, other than those recommended by your therapist.

To prevent ingrown hairs:
•Gently exfoliate the skin 3 times a week (72hrs after wax).
•Dry body brush daily (72hrs after wax).
•Use a deep penetrating moisturiser daily.

You may notice a small amount of re-growth after a week or so.  It can take up to 4 treatments for your hair to follow the same growth cycle pattern.  Hair needs to be at least ½cm long before it can be successfully removed by waxing. Please do not shave between your appointments.  To maintain your smooth appearance, waxing every 4-6
weeks is recommended.
