Absolutely, waxing is a very popular method of hair removal.
We use the highest quality wax and only use hot wax for specialised intimate waxing treatments, so you can be assured that we’ll deliver the safest and most comfortable waxing possible.
You need to make sure that your skin is clean and free from any oils or moisturisers.
Exfoliate lightly about 2-3 days before your waxing treatment.
We would ask that you trim hair to about ¼ of an inch long before your wax.
Wear loose cotton clothing.
We recommend you wear 100% cotton underwear to avoid any skin irritation if having a bikini wax.
If you are having a leg wax, we suggest you don’t wear nylon tights or skinny jeans because this could cause irritation on your legs.
We completely understand, especially if it is your first time.
Our therapists are professionals who do this on a daily basis, so there is no need for you to worry. We’ll take our time to explain what will happen and will make sure you never feel uncomfortable.
It depends on the person.
Most people say the anticipation and thought of it are the worst part, the wax itself is fine. We only use hot wax for all of our intimate waxing treatments this allows the follicles to open more and it is a lot less painful than strip waxing. We’re a chatty bunch in here, so generally the time passes by before you realise what’s happened.
You will need at least 2-3 weeks growth in order to achieve a clean wax, this does vary from person to person.
For your first wax we would definitely recommend 3 weeks growth.

This varies from person to person but an average next session is in 4-6 weeks for most people.
Please avoid the following things:

– Exfoliation for 24hrs;
– Sun beds or fake tan on the area or expose direct sunlight on the waxed area;
– Perfumed products or thick creams.

After waxing it is quiet safe to start lightly exfoliating about 3-4 days after your wax, but it depending on how sensitive your skin is.
We don’t recommend shaving in between your waxes, shaving will affect the consistency of your hair growth patterns.
Shaving you can also increase the chance of ingrown hairs.
Light exfoliation is really helpful for it.
In your patch test, on the most sensitive area, you’ll know a true reflection of what you will be feeling.
We adjust settings by how sensitive you are and what how you can manage it.
As with most treatments, it depends on the person and the area being treated but we will always ensure you are comfortable.
Your patch test is essential because it allows us to test your skin for any sensitivity from the laser, and it will also ensure that laser hair removal is suitable for you.
We would recommend you stop waxing/shaving 4-6 weeks before your first session to ensure your follicles are intact and you have enough hair to treat.
Make sure the treatment area is free from tan – real or fake – and lightly exfoliate approximately 5 days before your first session.
Do not apply any moisturiser, cream, oil or lotion to the treatment area.
If your skin is irritated from shaving, aloe vera is the only thing we would recommend.
Below is an average amount of sessions, but this is all down to the individual.

– Large areas, legs/arms etc 6-10

After these sessions have been completed maintenance sessions are required, most people will need an average of 2-3 maintenance sessions a year.
On average a 4-6 week gap initially, depending on the area being treated.
Your treatment area will be continually assessed throughout your course of treatment and your therapist will recommend when you should return for your next session.
The laser treatment will reduce the amount and thickness of your hair substantially as the weeks go by, and this will be permanent.
At the end of your treatment, you’ll have areas where the hair will have completely disappeared, and some areas with sporadic light hairs remaining, but it is impossible to eliminate 100% of the follicles.
These remaining hairs will be picked up on your subsequent top-up treatments and maintenance sessions.

Please do not take Ibuprofen for 48 hours before your laser hair removal session, this medication may cause bruising after laser for certain people.
If you are inclined to ingrown hairs you’ll see bumps appear about a week after laser.
Light exfoliation methods are best to free any ingrown hairs and hydrating the skin afterwards is a must.
The laser doesn’t work on light hairs that are blond, red, grey or white because they don’t contain enough pigment for the laser to absorb into.

THE DIODE LASER APPLICATOR has been designed in response to the high demand for the removal of unwanted hair in all body areas. Diode Laser hair removal is one of the most comfortable procedures for hair removal. A slight discomfort may be sensed as treated area but no topical anaesthetics are necessary for this procedure.
THE DIODE APPLICATOR is considered the “gold-standard” of hair-removal lasers as it can be used to treat all skin types effectively and with the fewest number of treatments. The laser emits near-infrared laser light that is absorbed by the melanin located in the hair follicle. The laser is pulsed for only a fraction of a second. The duration of each pulse is long enough to damage the follicle, without damaging the surrounding tissue. It offers the ability to treat large areas fast with high efficacy and comfort. 6-10 sessions, are required in order to completely remove hair, with just a few touch ups that may be required over time.
