HOW TO BOOK
Please telephone or e-mail us. E-mails can be actioned out of hours if you need us in a rush!
If you choose to book an appointment with us, you MUST have a minimum of two weeks hair growth since shaving or three weeks since waxing when you come in.
The most important rules of thumb regarding a freshly waxed part of your body are: keep it clean, fresh, exfoliated and moisturised.
Use an antibacterial soap or an antiseptic wipe if you feel you need it. Tea tree oil and lavender oil are good natural antiseptics.
Its advisable to avoid any activity which will increase your body temperature for 24 hours. Sweating can cause small white bumps to appear on the skin. Whilst the heat from the sun, sauna, hot baths, sun beds can all cause the skin to become super sensitive and in some cases burn.
Ingrown Hairs & Folliculitus (White Pustule Bumps)
These problems can occur in any form of hair removal. Following the advice above is a good start. But to limit the occurence we recommend you exfoliate regularly (every 2 or 3 days) after the 3rd day of being waxed. Use a nylon glove as natural fibres harbour bacteria.
Ingrown hairs are hairs that have twisted and grown in on themselves, causing inflamation. Antisceptic alone is unlikely to help remove these.
We offer an ingrown hair removal treatment programme and sell a range of anti bump and ingrown hair treatment solutions for large problem areas. However for the one off ingrown hair here is a tip: dab a small amount of sudocrem on the ingrown hair then crush an asprin and pour onto the cream. Cover with a plaster and leave for 24 hours. Asprin contains Salicylic Acid which naturally exfoliates the skin, reduces the inflamation and helps the hair pop out.
Please use this information with caution - it does not replace medical advice and do not use if you are allergic to asprin. If in doubt please speak to your medical practioner.
