What’s The Difference between a Warm Wax and Hot Intimate Wax?
For intimate waxing treatments we use hot wax. The reason we use hot wax for all intimate waxing is by nature hot wax is designed with a much thicker consistency. Hot wax is applied directly onto the skin, fully covering all hairs, allowed it to dry and then removed without the use of waxing strips. Hot wax is far better for those delicate, intimate and sensitive areas, providing a more comfortable waxing experience.

What to Expect with Your First Intimate Waxing Treatment
After your treatment, I will advise on aftercare products and also provide you with an informative aftercare card, detailing what you should and shouldn’t do within the first 48hrs after your treatment.
If this is your first intimate waxing treatment, you’ll also be awarded your next treatment at a reduced rate If you book you’re next appointment within 5 weeks, this can be done before leaving the salon.
Timing between Intimate Waxing Treatments
Everyone is different as are their hair growth patterns, generally is best to time your waxing treatments every 4-6 weeks. This promotes healthy hair growth that enables the hair to grow back finer and thinner as the hair follicle has far less grip on the hair.
It’s not recommended to have waxing treatments sooner than this timeline as the results will be not be as successful due to the hair being too short to grip and provide professional results.
Intimate Waxing During Your Cycle…?
Why do men really wax?
Most men wax for aesthetic reasons (back/chest waxing), but those having hollywood waxing do so mainly for hygiene reasons and because it makes them feel cooler and more comfortable and its feels great.
How long will a wax treatment take?
Back or chest - 20–30 mins
Full leg wax - 45 – 60 mins
Full Brazilian - 30 – 40 mins
I’m going on holiday, how far in advance should I have my waxing?
I always advise that you leave about 3 days between waxing and going on holiday to give your skin a chance to settle down. Any redness or soreness needs to have subsided before you expose your skin to the sun.
Will I need a patch test before I can have a wax?
You will only need to have a patch test if you have any known allergies or skin sensitivities, or have had an adverse reaction to waxing at some point in the past. If you would like a patch test or are unsure as to your skin sensitivity we would encourage you to have a test 24-48 hours before your treatment. The test takes just 5 minutes and is free of charge.
Are there any conditions which mean I won’t be able to have a wax treatment?
If you have any form of contagious skin condition we are unable to wax the affected area until the condition has cleared up.
What should I expect the first time?
The first time tends to give rise to a bit more discomfort than subsequent appointments – especially intimate waxing or male chest waxing.
Do I have to remove my underwear?
For a standard or high leg wax you can wear your own underwear. For a G-string wax a you may wear your own underwear (the briefer the better for a good result).
For a Brazilian or Hollywood wax there will be no underwear. In the words of Kim Lawless, 'You wouldn't wear a hat to get your hair cut'.
Is my therapist qualified and insured?
Yes! I have completed many training courses with the best educators in the industry. I am qualified in all treatments offered and fully insured by www.beautyguild.com (a widely recognised association within the beauty sector).
It is therefore important to listen to your own body and be aware of anything that may inhibit treatment. Click here for Waxing Before & After Advice.
