At The Maple Tree we use Lycon Hot Wax. This is a low temperature formula that shrinks, wraps and removes hair as short as 1mm, it is very pliable and painless for most. Perfect for sensitive areas!
Only the sides outside your underwear are waxed
Waxing for a higher cut bikini
Leaves a central strip but everything else is removed
Everything is removed
Warm wax is applied then removed with a cotton strip and hot wax is applied, left to set then removed without a strip.
Hot wax is better for people with sensitive skin as it only attaches to the hair as we use an oil to create a barrier between the skin and the wax. Making it less abrasive on the skin.
Hot wax is better with very short coarse hairs. Great on sensitive areas so ideal for intimate waxing and underarms, facial waxing. Warm wax is perfect for longer areas e.g. legs excellent for regular wax clients and fluffy soft hairs.
In growing hairs come as a result of the hairs growing back tapered and fine, this makes them difficult to push through the skin. Bikini and underarm are common areas as the hairs are curly or the area is pushed closely together e.g. underarms.
The hairs need to be at least 1/2cm, the hot wax is better for shorter hairs.
Regular wax clients find the hair growth becomes finer and less obvious and can last up to 4 weeks between appointments.
We recommend waiting 4-6 weeks until you need to return for the treatment again. (Unless your hair grows at a quicker pace)
We don’t recommend to tan within the first 24 hours of a wax as your pores are still open from the removal of the hair so you may find the tan goes into the pores and appear with little brown spots.
We recommend to exfoliate the area a few days after waxing and then once a week to help prevent dry skin, which causes the hairs to grow underneath the skin.
The longer the hair the better and if we feel it needs to be trimmed we shall do that, otherwise it could be trimmed too short then we will not be able to carry out the treatment.
It can, depending on the medication as it can thin the skin so if you are worried please let your therapist know and we can adjust the treatment to you.
A Brazilian is all hair removed except from a strip of your desired width in the middle and a Hollywood wax removes all hair.
We recommend within the first 24 hours to avoid any excess heat (I.e hot bath or shower) the gym, sun beds, tight clothing.
We recommend at least 24-48 hours before you go.
Of course, however be aware that you can be more sensitive than usual and can experience slightly more discomfort.
