Waxing is the longest-lasting method of semi-permanent hair removal which removes large amounts of hair at any one time. New hairs will not grow back in the previously waxed area for approximately 4 to 6 weeks. When wax is warm, it enters the follicle, allowing the hair to be pulled out from the root. Areas that are repeatedly waxed often exhibit re-growth that is softer and lighter in colour and the amount re-growing will be permanently reduced.
Unwanted hair is common on the upper lip, the chin and cheeks, on the back, legs, fingers, feet and toes. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetics, certain medications such as hormones or steroids, or even medical abnormalities.
If you are going on holiday it is best to be waxed at least a 3 or 4 days before you go.
All of our waxing treatments are completed with the therapist applying Australian Bodycare Hand & Body lotion. This is one of the most effective after wax creams as it contains 5% Tea Tree Oil which will calm and cool the skin and help to prevent in-growing hairs.
This is the most popular method of waxing. Warm wax is applied to the skin, using a spatula, at a lower temperature than hot wax. The sticky properties of this product make it adhere to the hair enabling it to be is removed using paper or fabric strips. The hair and root are removed.
You should ensure that the hair to be waxed is a minimum of approximately 5mm so that the wax will take to the hair effectively. This is normally around 2 weeks post-shaving growth for most ladies or 4-6 weeks post waxing.
At Jasmines we only use the best and world renown Perron Rigot hot wax for our treatments. For hot waxing, the wax is applied to the hair at a comfortable temperature, whilst still in a liquid state. It dries almost instantly on the skin contracting around the hairs. When removed, the wax is flipped up at the corner and pulled off quickly by the therapist, which pulls the hair from the root thus removing it.
Hot wax is gentler on the area being waxed (therefore less redness post treatment) and excellent when used on shorter, coarser hair. Consequently it is mostly used on smaller areas such as underarms, bikini’s, Brazilians and Hollywoods.
This is a delicate, pearlised cream wax with a low operational temperature which is enriched with generous amounts of Lavender and Calendula. Both these naturally derived ingredients have superb calming and soothing effects on the skin. Coupled with this these exceptional ingredients and low temperature, we use this wax to remove hair from the face and eyebrows.
Clients often get confused about what a Bikini Wax is, so here is an explanation;
This is just as it says, it covers the bikini line that would be on the outside of your knicker line.
Leaves a small vertical strip or triangle, just above the vaginal area. Hair is totally removed from the labia right round to the peri-anal region.
Hollywood style removes all of the hair, front all the way to the back.
If it’s your first wax, or you haven’t been recently, you should trim your hairs in the bikini area to about 1cm, making sure to leave enough hair for the wax to hold onto. Waxing to remove long hairs is far more painful.
