Waxing (Epilation)

The removal of body hair by waxing is a form of epilation where hair is removed below the surface of the skin. 

Elegant Image specialises in all of body hair removal for both men and women. We are here to make you feel good about yourself and our therapists can advise and assist you with hair removal treatments including permanent hair reduction.

Elegant Image Waxing Basics

At Elegant Image we will wax nearly any area of the body including the trunk, eyebrows, face, Brazillian, legs, arms and back.

Our therapists always examine the areas to be waxed and will discuss any issues concerning the waxing process prior to commencement.

We maintain wax melted in heated warmers, it is applied to the skin with small single use disposable wooden spatulas. In most circumstances once wax is applied it is covered by a strip of disposable waxing material. After the wax cools the strip is removed quickly (pulled in the opposite direction of the hair growth at about a 45 degree angle) to remove the unwanted hair. New disposable paper strips are used for each waxing and the used strips are immediately disposed of. After removal of the strip, to minimise any discomfort hand pressure is immediately applied to the waxed area.

After the area has been waxed the therapist will clean all remaining traces of wax from the skin and where possible apply a hair retardant, an antiseptic lotion is then applied to minimise redness sanitise, soothe and calm the skin.

Elegant Image only use new disposable wax and waxing items during each treatment and  we minimise the risk of skin irritation by using Strip Wax on tender skin areas such as the face, underarm and bikini line and hot wax on other areas.

The benefits of waxing

We believe the major advantages of in-salon waxing epilation over depilation (hair removed at the skin line - shaving etc.) is that:

  1. First and foremost it takes longer for the hair to grow back.
  2. It delivers better longer lasting results.
  3. Continual waxing over time stunts the frequency with which hair regrows. Therefore, the results become longer lasting.
  4. With each successive waxing, hair growth gets finer.
  5. As opposed to using shavers or razors, waxing leaves the surface of the skin much smoother.
  6. It is a cost effective and less messy solution to for those method of hair removal.

We also believe that waxing correctly performed in-salon by our qualified Beauty Therapists delivers better results, are safer, cleaner and hassle-free than the cheaper alternatives.
