Hair Removal

Waxing

Waxing is a method hair removal which removes the hair from the root. The effects of the treatment lasts between 2-6 weeks – depending on the individuals hair growth rate, the time of year and how long you have been having the area waxed.

Warm wax is applied to the skin in a thin layer. The hair becomes embedded in the wax and a strip is applied and then pulled off quickly, in the opposite direction of the hair growth, taking the hair with it.

For certain waxing treatments, hot wax will be used. Hot wax is spread thickly onto the skin and allowed to dry slightly before it is gently peeled away. This method is far less painful than most, as the wax doesn't attach to the skin, only the hairs which are pulled out from the roots. The benefits include fewer in-grown hairs, less breakage and therefore longer re-growth periods.

Threading

Threading is an ancient art for many countries such as India. It has been practised for centuries.

Threading gives more definition to the eyebrow than tweezing, creating a very clean, precise hairline. The treatment can also be used for other unwanted facial hair. Threading is a very delicate procedure, making it suitable for everyone.

The therapist uses a doubled-up strand of 100% cotton thread to twist around individual hairs. It is twisted and pulled along the area of unwanted hair, which lifts the hair directly out from the follicle.
