Waxing at Ren Skin Health in Geelong

Posted on December 9, 2010

With summer knocking on our door step, it’s time to rid ourselves of our winter coats and get down to the beach! So get smooth this summer at Ren Skin health, with all waxing services available.

Lycon wax

Here at Ren Skin Health we use Australia’s own Lycon wax. Lycon is the best quality wax in the world and is the choice of wax used in the top spas and salons in over 35 countries.

Formulated with the finest natural resins, bees wax and sensuous aromatherapy, LYCON delivers superior results. Strong enough to remove those short stubborn hairs, yet gentle enough for the most sensitive of skins.

Procedure

Before your professional therapist starts your waxing she will prepare your skin with Lycon’s Lycotance™ Skin cleanser with Jasmine and Chamomile to cleanse the area. We will then choose the appropriate wax for the area, smaller and more sensitive areas we use Lycon’s Rosette™ Hot wax with camomile and titanium dioxide, this wax soothes the area as it is being waxed for a more comfortable waxing experience. For larger areas we use Lycon’s Azulene™ strip wax with soothing and cooling Aloe Vera; this wax will leave your legs feeling silky smooth and comfortable. No more irritated itchy skin after waxing. At the end of your waxing experience our qualified therapist will gently massage Tea Tree cream onto the waxed area to help soothe and calm your skin. For facial waxing we offer a complimentary Youngblood® mineral cover up so you can get on with your day without that embarrassing redness.

Aftercare

As we all know it is important that we do the right home care after your waxing. For the first 24 hours after your waxing it is advised that you do not get the area wet or do any strenuous exercise; this is to prevent the follicles from getting infected with bacteria and to let the skin’s natural defence system calm down. It is advised to keep the waxed area well hydrated and clean for this we recommend a soothing tea tree cream which we can supply here at the salon. It is also very important to exfoliate the area a week after your waxing and every other day until your next waxing appointment, this is to prevent ingrown hairs, and so you also get a better waxing result! Your waxing result will be as good as your homecare, so to maximise your waxing keep the area hydrated and exfoliate.

The best time for females waxing is 2-5 days after their menstrual cycle, as hair growth is related to hormones. Females hormones are at their peak just before and during their menstrual cycle so your hair growth will be the most active and rapid at this time. For the best results in your waxing book your appointment 2-5 days after your menstrual cycle to get a silky smooth wax that will last weeks, plus it will hurt a lot less too.

For men it is a little harder to determine the best time for their waxing as they do not have as an obvious sign for their hormonal peak. It comes down to trial and error. Every 5-6 weeks seems to the average.
