Does it hurt?
You may feel a slight discomfort but this only lasts a few seconds. As we put oil on the skin first this prevents the wax from sticking to the skin and just attaches itself to the hair and removes it quickly and efficiently and with little or no irritation to the skin, we would go so far as to say it is almost painfree. Once you have been waxed the hair weakens, so each time you get longer lasting results. For best results return every 4-6 weeks for your waxing.

What should I wear?
Preferably loose clothing, and for Bikini waxing we provide a disposable brief for your comfort.

What should I do before my treatment?
Do not cut the  hair or remove the hair ,leave that to the experts,/ we will do as you need or as is required, and we will give you aftercare guidelines and after wax finishing oil.

What should I do after my treatment?
Avoid hot baths or hot showers ,steam room and saunas and of course sun and the sunbed. Avoid excessive heat for 24-48hours after to allow skin to cool down.
