Below we have provided a list of our frequently asked questions.
Treatments – Permanent Hair Removal
What are the side effects?
A patch test will determine the correct setting for your hair and skin type. There may be short term reddening, mild burning, temporary bruising and discolouration, in very rare cases there can be blistering, these effects will pass and are not permanent.
I’m pregnant, so which treatments are suitable?
Up to 12 weeks we recommend you only have manicures and pedicures. After 12 weeks we recommend our range of pregnancy treatments – just ask.
What if I have a health condition?
Please tell us about any health conditions you have. Some common conditions that we need to know about include:
- High blood pressure
- Skin conditions
- Low blood pressure
- Varicose veins
- Heart conditions
- Recent operations
- Scar tissue
- Any other medical condition
What if I have a special diet?
Just let us know about any special dietary needs before you arrive and we’ll make sure you are catered for.
Does waxing hurt?
It doesn’t tickle, but it’s very quick. Redness or a slight rash is typical, especially if it’s your first time. The more often you wax, the more your skin and hair becomes used to it – and the less it hurts.
What do I do with my jewellery?
Leave your valuables in the trinket boxes provided. You will need to remove your jewellery for most treatments.
Should I do anything before I arrive?
Drink lots of water, and eat fresh fruit and salads, for a couple of days before your visit.
What do I wear during my treatment?
The usual rule for massage or body treatments is to take it all off (including jewellery down to your underpants, pop yourself on the bed and cover yourself with the towel we provide. For a facial or head massage you should remove your top and lower your bra straps. Our therapists respect your privacy at all times.
What time should I arrive?
Aim to arrive 15 minutes before your treatment. If it’s your first visit, we’ll complete a quick consultation about your health so it’s really important you allow at least 15 minutes.
Do you offer disabled facilities?
Yes we do. Our beds go low for easy access. Please let us know of any special needs you have when you book so we can help you make the most of your day.
What should I wear?
We’re relaxed, and we want you to relax too, so wear whatever you feel comfortable in. If you’re having a pedicure, bring flip-flops to wear after your treatment to prevent smudging.
