WAXING

At KJBeauty we use two types of wax. The 1st wax we use is strip application (warm wax) tea tree creme in a roller head for easier application, so it’s ideal for the more sensitive skin types and larger areas. The 2nd wax we use is Lycon (hot wax) this delivers an excellent result in removing stubborn hairs as short as 1mm.

Lycon Wax

Lycon hot wax is a low temperature formula, its is place on the skin and allowed to set using a skrink wrap method. To help assist removing the most stubborn, strongest and shortest hairs. This is why I used this wax on the most sensitive areas as the wax can also be re-applied on the same area, many times without the wax feeling too hot and without skin trauma or irritation.

Warm wax

Waxing is a quick and effective method of hair removal. It leaves the skin soft and supple, with slower, lighter regrowth with repeated treatments. Results last approximately 3 to 6 weeks. A tea tree warm wax is used, so it is even suitable for sensitive skin. For waxing to be carried out, you need to have sufficient hair growth
(about ¼ inch). 

It certainly leaves your skin feeling silky soft and sensationally smooth. Waxing completely removes hairs from the follicles, Although it does grow back, with regular treatments over a period of time, the hair weakens and eventually stops growing. It is recommended that you have regular treatments every 4-6 weeks to achieve these results.

 

Aftercare advice

Below are some recommendations for you to follow to ensure your skin is cared for properly following waxing. Please note: some slight soreness, small bumps and redness are normal temporary reactions, particularly after a waxing treatment. These symptoms should subside within 24 hours. However, if irritation persists, or infection occurs, seek medical advice.

Immediate advice
Your skin will be temporarily sensitive after waxing, so during the next 24–48 hours you should:

• avoid hot baths/showers and heat treatments (e.g. saunas, hot tubs or steam treatment)
• avoid tanning (sunbathing, sun beds or self-tan products)
• avoid sport, going to the gym or other exercise
• avoid touching or scratching the treated area with unwashed hands
• avoid wearing tight clothing as this may irritate the treated area
• avoid swimming in chlorinated pools
• do not apply deodorants/body sprays, powders, lotions or perfumed products to the area. 
Further treatments

To maintain your smooth appearance, it is recommended that you have regular waxing every 4–6 weeks.

If you are having further waxing treatments:

• your hair needs to be at least 1/4inch long before it can be successfully removed by waxing
• please do not shave between appointments (but instead tweeze if you need to).
• Exfoliate a couple of days before your next waxing treatment

Aftercare advice

• It is recommended not to apply make up for up to 12 hours after the treatment to allow the skin to fully absorb the products used in your treatment, it also allows time for the skin to 'breathe' so as not to clog the pores.  

• Try to avoid drinking caffeine or alcohol where possible as these are highly dehydrating to the skin, making the skin dry and dull. 

• Drinking plenty of water (1.5 - 2 litres a day) will greatly improve the skins complexion and help rid the body of toxins giving you a healthy glow. 

• Try to avoid the sun immediately after your treatment as the top layer of dead skin cells will have been removed in your treatment therefore making your skin particularly sensitive to sunlight. Don't forget to protect you skin from UV light on a daily basis to help prevent skin damage.  

• Use products recommended to you during your treatment, aim to double-cleanse, tone and moisturise your skin twice a day and also exfoliate and apply a mask twice a week. This will improve your complexion and make your facial treatment more beneficial and effective.

Fake bake tan

A spray tan is applied using a high velocity compressor, which sprays a very fine mist of tanning agent all over the body. This fine mist stays on the skin for a number of hours; the processing time enables the product to stimulate your own melanin, creating a tanned healthy glow. Original spray tan liquid is used to give a more natural, long lasting and tailored tan. Fake bake formulations enhance the natural pigment of your skin to give a more realistic result. Allow 6-8 hours for development time to achieve the best results. Full Body Spray Tan £20

Top tips to get the most from your tan:

 

• Exfoliate thoroughly beforehand; smooth skin will take the tan more evenly

• Moisturise in the days running up to the tan; moisturised skin prevents dry areas "grabbing" the tan and looking patchy

• Wear very loose clothes to the appointment, so that the guide colour will not be rubbed off by your clothes

• Do not wear deodorant, make-up or perfume to the tan appointment; these can react with the tanning product

• Air- dry after a shower, don't rub with a towel

• Apply misting oil over the tan every day to keep it moisturised and fresh
