More about waxing
Waxing is a method of hair removal where the hair is removed from the root. New hair will usually only appear through the skin again after an approximate period of four to six weeks (although some people’s hair grows back quicker due to different hair growth cycles in every person.) The hair is removed by covering the area with a sticky substance called “wax” to ensure the body hair sticks to it, and then the wax is quickly removed. Through this action the hair is pulled out from the follicle.
Almost any area of the body can be waxed, from top to toe! Please request our pricelist for a detailed overview of the areas.

Things to remember when waxing
While waxing is a good temporary solution for hair removal, there is some drawbacks to it.
Painful – Although it is painful, we will try our best to make it the least painful possible.
Some people experience ingrown hairs. If this is the case and you continuously get it, it might be time to strongly consider laser hair removal. All our clients who struggled with ingrown hairs, does not experience this anymore. If there were marks left from the ingrown hairs, this marks eventually also fade away when our clients start with laser hair removal. (Please see our laser hair removal tab for more info)
Some people experience red bumps or minor bleeding, if this is the case with you, please let us know so that we can evaluate if you are a candidate for waxing or if we should monitor it for future purposes.
