Electrolysis ✥
Electrolysis permanently removes unwanted facial hair from the root. For electrolysis to have a long term effect on hair growth, you will need a series of treatments. It works by weakening the hair over time so eventually it stops growing.
We offer following methods of Electrolysis
Blend - the most popular - combines galvanic and high frequency the most effective
Galvanic - direct current - removes hair by chemical means. It suits curved, distorted follicles (is the slowest)
Shortwave - diathermy - high frequency alternating current with heat used to destroy tissues by coagulation. It's faster than galvanic, but there is higher % of re-growth.

Hot Wax versus Strip Wax
The primary difference between hot wax and strip wax is that the hot wax method involves melting the wax prior to use, then applying to the skin. As the hot wax cools it constricts around the hairs trapping them for removal. Once the wax is hard the therapist pulls the wax away leaving the skin clean and hair free. With the standard strip wax method the wax is applied then removed using a fabric strip.

Pre and aftercare advice
Prior to your appointment your body will be more sensitive if you have been rushing and if you are stressed. We suggest you arrive in sufficient time to rest a moment (cool down) before your treatment. Avoid heat treatments and vigorous exercise 8 hours before or after your wax. For facial waxing do not use products or medication that include vitamins which can thin the skin (i.e. products that contain AHA's) as this may lead to the skin becoming fragile and may cause skin to lift off during waxing treatments. Stay out of direct sunlight and away from sunbeds for 24 hours before and after treatments. Use a sensitive deodorant for around 2 - 3 days after waxing. Avoid bathing with very hot water.

Clothing:
Wear loose clothing on the day of your appointment. Avoid wearing your best underwear for a Bikini wax.
