Waxing Treatments available at Urban Spa

essentials 3Waxing is perhaps one of the fastest and safest ways to remove stubborn, unwanted hair. At Urban Spa, Bishop’s Stortford, we offer a wide range of waxing services and hair removal options, and all our waxing includes skin brushing to exfoliate and prepare the skin prior to waxing. Best of all, with just one quick waxing treatment at our Bishop’s Stortford Spa you will delay unwanted hair growth from 4-6 weeks!

When it comes to other forms of hair removal i.e.hair removal creams – waxing is certainly the more advantageous of the two. Hair Removal Creams can often cause irritation, their effects listing for a mere ten to fifteen days, not forgetting that there are also possible health risks associated with them. As we know, shaving often thickens the re-growth of hair which we want to avoid, naturally.

With a professional waxing session at Urban Spa, you will experience smoother, softer skin for a longer period of time.

Which Type Of Waxing Is For You?

Traditional Strip Wax is recommended for thicker/less sensitive areas such as legs, arms, back, chest, and shoulders. A thin layer of wax is applied to the skin and is then removed using a paper strip.

Hot Wax is spread thickly onto the skin then allowed to dry a little before it is gently peeled away. This method is much less painful than most and pulls hair directly from the roots. It has benefits such as fewer in-grown hairs, less breakage so longer re-growth periods. It also promotes skin hydration and we highly recommended Hot Wax for sensitive areas.

Waxing FAQ’s At Urban Spa

Q: How long should hair be for waxing?

A: The hot wax can grab hair as short as 1mm in length, while strip wax can remove hair as short as 2mm. Everyone has a different growth cycle but generally we are able to wax areas that have been shaved one week earlier. However, for larger parts of the body such as arms/legs, we suggest leaving it three weeks before waxing.

Q: What is the difference between Hollywood and Brazilian?

waxing washing lineA: The Hollywood wax removes all pubic hair. The Brazilian however leaves a strip (as wide or thin as you like) at the front.

Q: Is waxing safe during Pregnancy?
