Waxing - Frequently asked questions


Waxing is something we specialise in, Both Male and Female waxing, using Lycon precision waxing. We have put together some Q&A of the questions we get asked the most.

How long does My hair need to be? Our hot wax can grab hair as short as 2mm in length. Our strip wax can remove hair as short as 4mm. Everyone has a different growth cycle but we are generally able to wax areas that have been shaved one week earlier. However with larger parts of the body like arms/legs, we suggest leaving it three weeks before waxing. Clients that have not waxed/shaved for a long period of time need not worry as our therapists will trim the hair to a suitable length for waxing.

What makes Lycon less painful? When we use our hot wax on sensitive areas, we first apply an essential oil to the skin which acts as a barrier between the wax and the skin. Therefore, the wax is able to shrink wrap around the hair and will not stick to the skin. (Less tugging results in less pain!)

Does it Hurt? Every person has different pain thresholds and so experience waxing differently, however with regular waxing most find it becomes easier as the hairs become thinner, lighter and sparser after a few treatments. Our specialised hot wax and expertly trained/experienced therapist makes waxing as pain-free as possible.

Can I still have a bikini wax while I’m on my period? Absolutely! You will need to wear a freshly changed tampon before going into your treatment. (you may use our loo beforehand to freshen up).

I’m Pregnant, is it ok to wax? Waxing during pregnancy is very popular especially now that people know that our wax is less painful. The Brazilian or Hollywood wax is a very popular treatment one week before the due date.

Is it done with discretion? We can provide a towel that can be used to cover parts of the intimate area while waxing. The treatment does involve the client holding the skin in various places to help minimise discomfort but the therapist will lead you in this process.

What sort of Bikini waxes do you offer? Basic bikini: hair removed from the top and sides of bikini area G-string: same as basic bikini with some hair removed underneath Brazilian: removes all of the hair from underneath and leaves only a strip of hair in front (hair is also removed from the area between the buttocks) Hollywood: everything off!

How long does it last? All waxing is recommended between 4 to 6 weeks for full re-growth to be removed.

Will it be uncomfortable after? Since we use a very high quality wax and have highly skilled therapist our treatments should leave you with minimal discomfort. When the treatment is finished the therapist will ensure no wax or residue has been left on the skin. Since we use hot wax, skin will not be sticky (which can happen with strip wax).

What are you waiting for… Book that wax!
