Intimate waxing involves hair removal from the pubic region and can start from having a bikini shape to complete hair removal.
If you've never had it done before, you may well have some questions, so here is our beginners guide.
Bikini Wax - a standard bikini wax is a basic shaping of pubic hair into a neat upside down triangle shape to the edge of the panty line.
What should I expect at my first waxing treatment? - Our therapist has intense intimate waxing training and will explain the procedure up-front, talking you through every step along the way. In terms of reaction, every persons skin behaves differently to intimate waxing. You may end up with some irritation or redness as the skin can be distressed after the first couple of waxing treatments, but we offer after care advice and products that help soothe the skin.
Does intimate waxing hurt? - pain thresholds are different for each person but our therapist is trained in techniques that offer minimum discomfort when performing intimate waxing treatments. If your are new to waxing there may be an element of shock, but it gets easier with every treatment as the hair thins.
How often will you need intimate waxing? - Everyone is different, but 95% of ladies will need to come in every 4-6 weeks. Regular waxing sessions ensure that your hair grows back finer and thinner as the hair follicle has less grip on the hair.
Can I shave in between sessions? - You can shave but this will knock out your waxing cycle because you will need at least 4 weeks growth for an intimate wax.
How long should the hair be? - The hair needs to have a certain length (5-10mm) to be waxed and for your first few sessions the longer the hair, he easier the wax.
What if I have coarse hair? - If you have coarse hair, the hair should be grown longer (around 10mm) for the first few intimate waxes but the hair will become finer over time.
How long does an intimate waxing treatment take - depending on how much hair you have and which treatment you need, a waxing treatment can take anywhere from 15 minutes for a basic bikini wax to 45 minutes for a Hollywood waxing.
Timing your intimate wax treatments - If you have a holiday planned, it's worth altering the pattern of your bikini waxing appointments to co-incide with specific dates. For example, it might be that your four week waxing cycle falls half way between your holiday dates but if you plan in advance you can move the cycle over a period of time.
Why should I wax instead of shaving? - The main benefit is, waxing helps to prevent ingrowing hairs, as the hairs get finer the risk of ingrowing hairs reduce even further.
Summary - Hot waxing for intimate areas is a treatment that gets more popular each year as more and more women discover the benefits. If you are considering intimate waxing but have concerns, this is natural. Our therapists are very friendly and will make you feel comfortable as you discover intimate waxing for yourself.
