We offer a vast range of waxing and tinting treatments at Afon Spa. We use the Perron Rigot, Hive and Gigi waxing systems in order to offer you the very best in comfort and quality.
Benefits of Spa Waxing
The following benefits can all be enjoyed with a waxing treatment from Afon Spa:
- Keep skin looking naturally smooth
- Eliminates stubble growth
- Waxing lasts 4-6 weeks
- Hairs become sparse over time
- Hairs become finer and weaker
- Slows down hair growth
Does it Hurt?
Every person has different pain thresholds and so experience waxing differently, however with regular waxing most find it becomes easier as the hairs become thinner, lighter and sparser after a few treatments.
What types of wax do you use?
To acheive the best results, we use both hot waxing and strip waxing techniques.
Hot wax is spread thickly onto the skin and allowed to dry slightly before it is peeled away. This method is far less painful and pulls hair directly from the roots. The benefits include fewer in-grown hairs, less breakage and therefore longer re-growth periods.
Strip wax is recommended for thicker/less sensitive skin, for example – legs, arms, back, chest and shoulders. A thin layer of wax is applied to the skin and is then removed using a paper strip. We offer organic and house strip wax.
Etiquette for private waxing
To ensure a comfortable and pleasant experience for you during your treatment we ask that all clients understand our ‘etiquette’ points as follows:
Basic Bikini Wax
You will be given the option to wear your own underwear or we can provide disposable paper underwear for use during your treatment.
We recommend removing your underwear however if you are not comfortable with this we will provide you with a disposable paper g-string and the treatment may take slightly longer.
Keep the waxed area clean, and avoid heat and friction during the 24 hours after your treatment. This means:
- No hot tubs or showers (warm water only).
- No saunas, hot tubs or steam treatments.
- No tanning (sunbeds, sunbathing or fake tans).
- No sport, gym work or other exercise.
- Avoid scratching or touching the treated area with unwashed hands.
- Avoid swimming in chlorinated pools.
Do not apply deodorants, body sprays, powders, lotions or other products to the area other than those recommended by your therapist for 24 hours.
