When a client comes to me for their most intimate treatments, that comes with a whole lot of trust. So it's important to me to deliver the best waxing treatment available. All waxing is done in my private and comfortable treatment room. I use Lycon Precision Wax to ensure a comfortable and as pain free as possible waxing treatment with the smoothest results. Lycon Hot Wax is a gentler yet more effective treatment which can remove hairs as short as 1mm. It is a low-temperature procedure where the wax shrink-wraps around the hair, pulling it out of the follicle (as opposed to pulling the skin). The result is much smoother skin – perfect for sensitive skin! You can expect four to six weeks between appointments with fewer in-grown hairs (depending on how quickly your hair grows!).
I use Hot Wax for the more delicate areas like the bikini area, face and under arms. The wax literally shrink wraps around the hair and does not stick to the skin. When the wax is removed it pulls from the very root of the hair follicle. This will prevent hair breakage, in-grown hairs, bruises and redness and the painful sting associated with other types of wax. I then apply a soothing anti-septic after wax lotion containing tea tree.
Hot wax is spread fairly thick onto the skin after it has been cleansed and allowed to dry slightly before it is quickly but gently peeled off. As the hair is pulled directly from the roots, it is far less painful than the more traditional strip wax. It therefore results in less in-grown hairs and minimum breakage which leads to softer smoother skin for longer. With hot wax there is no sticky residue aferward.
Strip Wax uses a thin layer of Lycon wax spread onto the skin and removed using a paper strip. After the treatment, the area will be cleaned to ensure that no residual wax has been left.
Using Lycon Products throught the treatment, I begin with an application of a specially formulated oil to the treatment area. This acts as a barrier between the wax and the skin. When the treatment is complete, I apply an anti-septic Oil to soothe the area.

Tips for Brazilian and Hollywood Waxing: First time getting a Brazilian or Hollywood? The best advice we can give you is to prepare. The process used with Lycon waxing results in less ingrown hairs but it is helpful if you exfoliate the area you are having waxed (exfoliating glove, etc). Whilst in the shower, gently massage your whole body using the gloves with shower gel a few days prior to your appointment. This gets rid of the dead skin cells creating smoother skin which leads to even better results with the wax as the hairs should find their way out of the follicle with the minimum of fuss.
DO NOT moisturise at least 48 hours prior to waxing as moisturisers can affect the treatment results.
Do not swim or do vigorous exercise a few hours before your appointment.
Avoid sunbeds, sunbathing, sauna, very hot bath, etc, 48 hours prior to appointment.
