Waxing

What is Waxing?

Waxing is a form of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for four to six weeks, although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week due to some of their hair being on a different growth cycle.

At Lavish Medi Spa we use high-quality hot and strip waxes for exceptional hair removal, with single-use applicators . All waxing includes towelettes to freshen up prior to service, and pre and post waxing lotions to protect skin. Our Youngblood Mineral Makeup range will soothe and conceal any redness after facial waxing, which your therapist will be more than happy to assist with.

Good waxing results depend partly on what you do before, after, and between waxing appointments. Please read our Waxing Pre and Post care below to help us obtain the best waxing result for you. Our Health and Hygiene policy for waxing is also detailed below for your confidence.

WAXING PRE CARE

  • Please arrive with clean skin (no moisturiser and preferably no makeup). Antibacterial wipes are provided to freshen up prior to intimate and underarm waxing.
  • Hair must generally be at least 3-4mm to be waxed effectively. Please trim any very long hairs in the area if possible. A length of between 6mm (0.6cm) and 10mm (1cm) is best for comfort and results. We will happily trim for you if required using sanitised equipment, however a trimming fee may apply.
  • If you are particularly sensitive or this is your first wax, you may wish to take a Panadol or Nurofen 30-60 minutes prior to your appointment to take the edge of any discomfort.
  • Wait 2 weeks after any IPL or Laser treatment before waxing.
  • Please advise us if you have been taking roaccutane or steroidal medication, or any other medication that thins the skin.
  • Avoid applying Retin A, AHAs, or glycolic acids for 2 weeks prior to waxing.
  • Wait at least 4 weeks post any superficial or medium depth peel. Wait at least 3 months post surgery.
  • It is best for pregnant women to consult their doctor prior to any waxing, however it is generally safe to have a service after the first trimester.
  • Do not wax if your skin is irritated, or if you have any active conditions or infections in the area such as rashes, cuts, eczema or coldsores. If you are taking roaccutane, any steroidal or skin thinning medications you must let us know as you have a highly increased chance of side effects.
  • It is necessary to remove your underwear for any intimate waxing beyond a basic bikini or brief wax. You will be provided a towel for coverage before your treatment. All of our waxing is performed by professional female therapists.
  • We kindly ask for 24 hours notice when rescheduling to avoid charge.

WAXING AFTERCARE

  • Even with the best products and technique, skin needs time to calm post waxing. This may happen very soon after your treatment but can take between 48-72 hours.
  • Please wear loose fitting clothing after waxing until the skin has calmed. Stockings and tight jeans can lead to irritation and ingrown hairs.
  • For intimate waxing, please ensure that you wear undergarments made of cotton so the skin can breathe. Don’t wear silks or satins or until the skin has calmed.
  • Avoid perfumes, antiperspirants and colognes in the area until the skin has calmed.
  • After a wax, avoid chlorine pools, saunas, the gym, and hot tubs until your skin has calmed down, to minimise the risk of inflammation.
  • Keep showers warm, not hot and do not engage in any vigorous exercise or sun exposure.
  • Use sun protection at all times if outdoors. We recommend Skinstitut non-irritant 50plus sunscreen which we retail.
  • Do not exfoliate and avoid any beauty treatments in the area for at least 48-72 hours and preferably a week, including spray tanning, sunbathing and sun-beds, laser, IPL, peels and massage.
  • Once the waxed area has returned to normal, gently exfoliate each day using a suitable exfoliating wash or gentle loofah and apply a moisturiser or after-wax lotion.
  • Use a proper after-wax lotion such as caron ‘Bump eraser ” commencing 48-72 hours after the treatment, and preferable daily, especially when regrowth begins to appear, to avoid ingrown hairs or infected follicles.
  • Once a 6mm growth has returned the area can be waxed again. Waxing appointments are generally booked 4-6 weeks apart.
