Waxing Hair Removal
Here at Waxing Adelaide we want to ensure you get the best results from your waxing hair removal treatments so we proudly only use CaronLab wax products.
We follow strict hygiene practices and never double dip our spatulas.
Using a mixture of hard wax and strip wax we aim to ensure optimal comfort, minimal discomfort, pain and hair breakage, and the best results from your treatment.
We undertake a thorough consultation and use a variety of CaronLab waxes to ensure that the wax we have chosen will be the best wax to suit your individual skin and hair.
For your first few waxes you should aim for close to 1 cm of growth. Once the hair becomes finer it can be waxed at shorter lengths.
If your hair is longer than this do not trim the hair as this can lead to uneven lengths and affect the results of your wax. It may take up to three treatments scheduled regularly to achieve smooth skin as the hairs grow in stages and not all of your hair will grow at the same stage. During this time it is very important to avoid shaving between appointments as this will interrupt the process and stimulate the hair growth again.
After your first initial wax the results can last from 2 to 6 weeks depending on your individual hair re-growth rate. In most cases the growth in the first week or two is minimal and increases around the third to fourth week.
Heat stimulates the hair, therefore hair grows quicker in the summer months than in the winter. With regular waxing the length of time between treatments will increase. Continued regular waxing results in sparse hair re-growth over time.
Before Your Waxing Hair Removal
Grow hair out to 1/2 cm or longer.
Do NOT trim the hairs.
Exfoliate 24 hours before your appointment.
Wear Loose Clothing.
If sensitive to pain take a painkiller ONE hour before appointment.
Avoid – Exercising, alcohol, caffeine, energy drinks as this will affect pain tolerance and blood flow.
During Your Waxing Hair Removal
We will discuss with you any concerns or conditions that may affect your treatment. We will ensure the wax in not to hot or cold. Throughout the wax we may use either strip wax or hot wax depending on the area and hairs being worked on. If any hairs remain after the wax we will remove them using tweezers.
