Waxing

The Elegant Lash provide waxing and is a quick method of semi-permanent hair removal great for that super smooth holiday body or simply to be hair free!

Which areas can be waxed?
Most places on the body and face can be waxed. Eyebrows, bikini, under arm and leg waxing are always popular treatments at the salon.

Does waxing hurt?
Some clients find that waxing is a bit painful while others say that it doesn’t bother them. Obviously we all have areas that are more sensitive than others but the pain you feel is so very quick and well worth it.

As experienced waxers we know how to minimise any pain you may feel and the more you wax the less it hurts!

What should I do to prepare for waxing?
Stop shaving or using depilatory creams for at least two weeks beforehand. Exfoliate the skin to remove the dead skin and to free any trapped hairs under the surface.

Always moisturise well as dry skin often makes waxing more painful but do not use a moisturiser the day of your waxing as it stops the wax from sticking to the hairs.

Waxing aftercare
Do not expose the area that has been waxed to the sun (so no Brisbane or Gold Coast beaches for you the next day!), any excessive heat like sunbeds/saunas/steam rooms for 24 hours.
Do not have your bath or shower too hot and avoid perfumed products on the area.
If underarms are waxed avoid anti perspirants and deodorants for 24 hours.
What will my skin look like immediately after waxing?
Most people get the “plucked chicken” look…this is normal, some people bleed a little especially if the hairs are thick but that should all go within 24 hours but usually after a few hours. The more times you have waxing the less painful it gets and the hairs seem to grow back finer and slower.
