Hair Removal 

Waxing

Waxing is the process of removing unwanted hair from a part of the body by applying wax and removing it along with the hairs. Once the area is treated new hair growth generally  begins to appear approximately four to six weeks after but results may vary depending on the individuals hair growth cycle.

At Skin and Beauty HQ we only use high-quality hot and strip waxes for exceptional hair removal results along with single-use applicators. All waxing includes towelettes to freshen up prior to service, and pre and post waxing lotions to protect skin.

Sugaring

Body sugaring is an ancient hair removal treatment that was first used by the Egyptians. The body sugar paste is all natural and is made with Lemon, water and sugar. 

Body sugaring is less painful than other hair removal treatments.

During your treatment the therapist will apply the sugar paste to the area in  the opposite direction of the hair growth. The paste will then begin to seep into the hair follicle. The sugar paste will then be removed by flicking it off the same direction of the hair growth, allowing for the root to be extracted. 

Post & Pre Treatment Care

  • Please arrive with clean skin (no moisturiser and preferably no makeup). Antibacterial wipes are provided to freshen up prior to intimate and underarm waxing/sugaring.

  • Hair must generally be at least 3-4mm to be waxed/sugared effectively. Please trim any very long hairs in the area if possible. A length of between 6mm (0.6cm) and 10mm (1cm) is best for comfort and results. 

  • If you are particularly sensitive or this is your first wax/sugar, you may wish to take a Panadol or Nurofen 30-60 minutes prior to your appointment to take the edge of any discomfort.

  • Wait 2 weeks after any IPL or Laser treatment before waxing/sugaring.

  • Please advise us if you have been taking Roaccutane or Steroidal medication, or any other medication that thins the skin.

  • Avoid applying Retinol A, AHAs, or glycolic acids for 2 weeks prior to waxing/sugaring.

  • Wait at least 4 weeks post any superficial or medium depth peel. Wait at least 3 months post surgery.

  • It is best for pregnant women to consult their doctor prior to any waxing, however it is generally safe to have a service after the first trimester.

  • Do not wax if your skin is irritated, or if you have any active conditions or infections in the area such as rashes, cuts, eczema or cold sores. 

  • It is necessary to remove your underwear for any intimate waxing beyond a basic bikini or brief wax. You will be provided a towel for coverage before your treatment. All of our waxing is performed by professional female therapists.

  • Even with the best products and technique, skin needs time to calm post waxing. This may happen very soon after your treatment but can take between 48-72 hours.

  • Please wear loose fitting clothing after waxing until the skin has calmed. Stockings and tight jeans can lead to irritation and ingrown hairs.

  • For intimate waxing, please ensure that you wear undergarments made of cotton so the skin can breathe. Don’t wear silks or satins or until the skin has calmed.

  • Avoid perfumes, antiperspirants and colognes in the area until the skin has calmed.

  • After a wax/sugar, avoid chlorine pools, saunas, the gym, and hot tubs until your skin has calmed down, to minimise the risk of inflammation.

  • Keep showers warm, not hot and do not engage in any vigorous exercise or sun exposure.

  • Use sun protection at all times if outdoors. 

  • Do not exfoliate and avoid any beauty treatments in the area for at least 48-72 hours but preferably a week.

  • Once the waxed/sugared area has returned to normal, gently exfoliate each day using a suitable exfoliating wash or gentle loofah and apply a moisturiser or after-wax/after-sugar lotion.

  • Use a proper after-wax lotion such as caron ‘Bump eraser’ commencing 48-72 hours after the treatment, and preferable daily, especially when regrowth begins to appear, to avoid ingrown hairs or infected follicles.

  • Once a 6mm growth has returned the area can be waxed/sugared again. Waxing appointments are generally booked 4-6 weeks apart.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser Hair removal is a permanent hair reduction treatment that is safe and effective in removing unwanted hair.

At Skin and Beauty HQ we use IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) laser hair removal technology.

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Permanent Hair Reduction, sometimes referred to as laser hair removal, guarantees permanent hair reduction for long-term smooth skin.

All IPL treatments are very safe and performed by qualified, skilled & experienced therapists. Ensuring your procedure is administered correctly is important, however, you must provide accurate data to us before each session, and also follow our recommendations for pre and post treatment care.

Our IPL has a cooling system technology that minimises any redness or discomfort compared to normal laser hair removal options. although there may be redness, follicle swelling and some heat in the skin this is all normal and will subside within 48 hours.

Post & Pre Treatment Care

  • When choosing to have IPL laser hair removal treatment you should avoid any form of tanning for 4-6 weeks before treatment. This includes spray tans, solariums and sun tans. Also avoid waxing, plucking, depilatory creams and electrolysis for at least 4-6 weeks before your appointment. We request you shave the area being treated 1-3 days before your IPL appointment.

  • Prior to your IPL Hair removal treatment be sure to exfoliate and moisturise the area being treated this will help to remove the hair more efficiently and allow a healthy hydrated skin that will allow heat to escape quicker and less irritation from dry scaly skin.

  • The area may be slightly red for up to 48 hours after the treatment depending on you skin type.

  • For the first 48 hours, avoid the sun, exfoliation and tight clothing as these can irritate the area. Do not wax or tweeze your hair between procedures as this encourages growth and strength. We recommend shaving the area.

  • The number or treatments required is different for each individual depending on hair thickness, hair type and skin type. Most people require anywhere from 6-12 treatments in the same area over anywhere from 6-12 months time period.

  • Between day 3-5 post treatment we recommend you begin exfoliating the area which will assist in removing dead hair and skin cells. 

  • Our hair grows individual begins to notice hair regrowth. By maintaining scheduled treatments every 4-6 weeks the treatment will be more effective and the individual will notice a significant reduction of time.

  • Post treatment we have found using after care products such as Skinstitut's Laser Aid it will help remove heat and redness from the skin along with rehydrating the area and reducing any irritation.
