A typical treatment

On this page we describe a typical treatment so you know what to expect.

All new clients will start by completing a consultation form. Here you are asked a few health related questions to ensure it is safe to proceed with the treatment. The consultation is your opportunity to ask questions so don't be afraid to use this time to find out more about your waxing treatment and therapist.

The therapist will then check the area being treated to see which direction the hair is growing and check for any moles or obviously sensitive areas.

Next a pre-waxing lotion is applied to the skin to cleanse and protect the skin. Any excess lotion is removed.

Using crème Wax

A thin layer of wax is applied to the skin. There are different methods for doing this including the traditional spatula, roll on and plastic applicator. Next a fabric or paper strip is pressed onto the waxed area, rubbed in and quickly pulled away against the direction of hair growth, removing the hair from its follicle. This is repeated over the whole area and the treatment finishes with an aftercare lotion to soothe the skin.

Using hard Brazilian Wax

Brazilian wax is usually applied using a spatula. Unlike the crème wax a thicker coat is applied which solidifies in a few minutes. The solid wax is pulled off without the need for a fabric strip. The hard wax is ideal for sensitive areas as it does not stick to the skin.

It is very important that the skin in the area being waxed is kept taught to avoid any bruising. To help this you may be asked to change positions during the treatment or to use your hands to pull down on the skin.

At the end of the treatment you will be given some aftercare advice to follow

The Back, Sac and Crack is without doubt one of the most popular and well known waxing treatments developed for guys. Originally the back referred to the back side but today it is usually used to describe the back.

A typical treatment will involve....

  • A consultation to ensure that the procedure is appropriate for you. This is also your opportunity to ask questions and describe exactly what you want.
  • You will be left to get undressed. Your therapist may give you an antibacterial wipe to cleanse the areas being treated or they may cleanse the areas when they return.
  • Your therapist will wear disposable gloves during the treatment. It is also important that you clean and disinfect your hands as you will be helping the therapist to keep the your skin taught and don't wont to infect skin that has been waxed.
  • If the hair is long it should be shaved or trimmed - this will reduce the risk of the hair breaking and make the procedure more comfortable. IMPORTANT - if shaving the hair before your appointment you must remember that pubic hair is very strong and deeply rooted and you need at least 10mm to reduce the risk of breakage. Waxing should pull the hair out by the root without breaking the hair.
  • Intimate waxing is done on small areas at at time using a hard no-strip wax. The process is slower than strip-waxing as the wax has to harden before being removed. Before the wax is applied the skin MUST be pulled tight to avoid bruising. You may asked to assist the therapist in doing this.
  • When ready the wax is pulled away in a fast motion in the opposite direction to the growth and the therapist may place a hand on the treated area to reduce stinging.
  • Hair removal around in the groin area is done with the client lying on their back. For the back side and crack the client will be required to go onto all fours. This position keeps the skin of the buttocks taught.
  • Once complete the therapist will apply an antibacterial soothing lotion or oil to the areas and provide you with some aftercare advice.
