During your treatment
Your wax expert is a total pro – they’ll bring everything they need to treat you.
They’ll begin by providing a rundown of the treatment ahead before making sure you’re comfortable and prepping your skin. Next, they’ll apply warm wax to your legs and quickly remove it with strips, using techniques that minimise discomfort.
To finish, a soothing post-wax lotion will be applied to reduce any redness or inflammation.
