Waxing

Waxing is a form of long-term hair removal which removes the hair from the root. We use both hot and cold waxing systems at Chilston.
Consultation

At your consultation you will be advised on the best method of hair removal for your skin and your budget.  The options are : Laser Hair Removal : Electrolysis : Alkaline Wash and Waxing.

Procedure

For health and safety reasons, disposable gloves are worn by our practitioners for the duration of your treatment and all equipment used is disposable.

The area for waxing is checked over for any contra indications like cuts, broken skin etc and if all is well, the area is cleansed with a medical wipe.  When the skin is dry to the touch, talcum powder is dusted over the area and then a thin layer of wax is applied and removed in the direction of the hair growth with either a paper strip or in the case of hot wax, peeled off when cool.  The practitioner will always test the heat of the wax heat before applying.

Risks

There following contra indications apply to waxing treatments:

  • Taking drugs for autoimmune diseases including lupus

  • Taking blood thinning medications or steroids

  • Skin conditions like Psoriasis, Eczeme, Rosacea or Sensitive Skin

  • Recent laser treatments

  • Recent Surgical/Chemical  Peels or Microdermabrasion

  • Recent sunburn

  • Varicose Leg Veins

  • Cuts and abrasions

Recovery

Waxing can be painful when the strip is removed from the skin, although the discomfort is not long lasting, it can be intense, particularly in sensitive areas.  Therefore some redness may remain for several hours after the treatment.

Longevity

We would recommend waxing every 4-6 weeks, as this generally follows the hair growth cycle, but this is dependent upon each individual’s needs.
