“Experience The Retreat”

Male waxing isn’t just for athletes and body builders. Over 60% of men remove some part of their body hair by either using cream, shaving or waxing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Is waxing suitable for everyone?
A. Waxing is a very safe treatment, however it cannot be done where there are varicose veins, skin disease, cuts and abrasions, warts or hairy moles. If you suffer from over-sensitive skin, peripheral artery disease, peripheral neuropathy or diabetes you should consult your GP or healthcare professional before being waxed.

Q. What’s involved?
A. The area to be waxed is cleansed with pre-wax lotion and then warm wax is applied to a small area using a spatula. A paper or fabric strip is pressed down on the wax and drawn quickly away, removing the wax and hairs that are attached to it. Where hair is stronger, hot wax will be used, applied with a spatula, allowed to set slightly and then removed without using a paper or fabric strip. After the treatment a soothing tea tree lotion is applied to calm the skin.

Q. How should I prepare for my treatment?
A. The optimum hair length for waxing is 1/4 inch (6 mm). If the hair is longer, it should be trimmed down. The skin should be clean and loose cotton clothing worn to avoid any aggravation after your treatment.

Q. How long will it last?
A. It can last from 4-6 weeks. Please note it can take 3 consecutive treatments to encourage hair to grow at the same rate, especially if you have been using another type of hair removal.

Q. What about aftercare?
A. These basic steps will reduce the risk of pimples (folliculitis) forming.
Avoid the following:
– Exposing the skin to sunlight or sunbeds for 48 hours
– Having a sauna or any heat treatment for 24 hours
– Taking a bath or shower for 24 hours
– Doing any exercise for 24 hours
– Applying any moisturisers or body lotions, other than those recommended by your therapist, for 24 hours
