Waxing

 

Waxing is a semi-permanent hair removal technique, which removes the hairs from their roots. This gives you a hair regrowth period of approximately 4 to 6 weeks. These results are dependent on the individual, as you continue to have regular waxing treatments the hair roots become weaker giving longer lasting results. With prolonged waxing you will start to get patches of no hair.

All the basic waxing treatments are offered by Footluz Bodyluz suitable for both men and women however some specialist waxing is currently only offered for women.

In preparation of your waxing session, exfoliate and moisturise for two days however on the day of your treatment do not use moisturisers, oils or similar products on the area to be treated.  The hair should be approximately 0.75 – 1cm long so that the wax can adhere to the hair effectively.  This is usually a 2 weeks post-shaving growth for most people.

Benefits of waxing:

  • Waxing lasts much longer then shaving (4-6 weeks)
  • Slows down hair growth rate
  • Keeps skin looking smooth
  • Hair becomes sparse over time
  • Leaves skin feeling soft

After your first waxing you may notice some hair growth after one week, it can take up to 4 treatments to reach a growth cycle that gives the best results. Hair should not be shaved in-between treatments. A regular waxing appointment between 4 – 6 weeks is recommended.

The Treatment

Aftercare Advice

Thank you for using Footluz Bodyluz for your waxing. Please read the following instructions carefully to look after your skin properly. Some bumps and redness are very common after waxing and is only a temporary reaction, it should improve within 48 hours . Keep the area cool and clean for the next 24 – 48 hours. This means:

  • No hot baths, showers
  • No steam, sauna sun beds, fake tanning
  • No exercise, sports etc that may make you hot and sweaty
  • Avoid touching the treated area, especially with unwashed hands
  • Do not swim in chlorinated pools
  • Do not use perfumes, deodorants, body sprays, lotions or any other product on the treated area. Only use the recommended products. Only use products recommended by your therapist.
  • To soothe and protect the skin apply an antiseptic cream to the waxed area for a 2 to 3 days after your treatment.

To prevent ingrowing hairs, regular exfoliation is recommended. 7 days post waxing and then three times a week. Either with a loofah or an exfoliation mitt.
