Waxing & Hair Removal

It Is True, That Waxing & Hair Removal Can Be A Bit Of A Chore But We Are Here To Help With The REFERENCE Waxing System!

The Professional REFERENCE Waxing System

Since 1982, REFERENCE the French beauty house, have been developing professional waxing products.

By using the REFERENCE method and its products, you will discover that waxing does not simply mean the elimination of unwanted hair, it becomes a complete beauty treatment with specific products.

The skin becomes more beautiful every day and the hair may weaken and lighten. Waxing can then become less frequent and easier each time as the hair growth stages synchronise.

Prior to treatment, the area for hair removal is cleansed using a specially formulated lotion. Then a high quality creamy roller warm wax is applied and unwanted hair removed.

A specially developed peel-off wax is used for sensitive areas including bikini lines, underarms, upper lip, chin and eyebrows.

For best results, the hair to be waxed should be a minimum of approximately 7mm -10mm.

For excellent results, a monthly hair removal appointment with daily use of the REFERENCE products is advised.

A patch test is recommended before your first wax treatment.

After Your Waxing Treatment

Please follow the guidelines below to ensure your skin is cared for properly over the next few days.

Please note: some slight soreness, small bumps and redness are common and perfectly normal temporary reactions, particularly if this is your first wax. These symptoms should subside over the next 24-48 hours. 

Keep the waxed area clean, and avoid heat and friction during the next 24-48 hours.

This means:

  • No hot baths or showers (cool to lukewarm water only).
  • No saunas, hot tubs or steam treatments.
  • No tanning (sunbathing, sunbeds or fake tans).
  • No sport, gym work or other exercise.
  • Avoid scratching or touching the treated area with unwashed hands.
  • Wear clean, loose fitting clothes.
  • Avoid swimming in chlorinated pools.
  • Do not apply deodorants, body sprays, powders, lotions or other products to the area, other than those
  • To soothe and protect the skin, apply a recommended product or an antiseptic cream to the waxed area regularly for 3 days following your treatment. Always wash your hands before applying any product.

Preventing Ingrown Hairs

To prevent ingrown hairs: starting a few days after your appointment, gently scrub the skin 3 times a week in the bath or shower using a loofah or exfoliating mitt.

Also moisturise the area every day, which will keep the skin supple and help new hairs to grow through normally.

You may notice a small amount of regrowth after a week or so. It can take up to 4 - 6 treatments for your hair to reach a growth cycle that gives best results.

Hair needs to be at least 1/2cm long before it can be successfully removed by waxing so please do not shave between your appointments. Ideally, to maintain your smooth appearance, we recommend regular waxing every 4-6 weeks.

And Finally

Waxing, as your choice of hair removal, is a commitment on time and accepting that hair needs to grow in between appointments. So with that in mind, having your unwanted hair waxed may not be right for you. However, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries or questions regarding an appointment and we will be really happy to help.
