The Ultimate Guide to Luxurious Waxing: Introducing the Lycon System - by Catherine Bond

Waxing has evolved over the years from an uncomfortable experience to a luxury treatment. An essential part of this is getting to know your clients’ skin and taking care of it accordingly throughout. Understanding your pre and post products means you can offer a reliable and efficient service, with a guaranteed reduction in sensation.

  1. CLEANSE

Before waxing, it’s essential to prepare the area of skin with a gentle cleanser that contains an antiseptic agent to effectively remove any make up, surface oils and residue from the skin. Active ingredients help to sooth the skin, resulting in less redness or irritation.

Hair follicles open when waxing, which exposes them to bacterial invasion that can become inflamed and lead to Folliculitis. This is a form of skin irritation characterized by tender red spots on the skin’s surface that originate from the hair follicle. Thoroughly cleansing the skin prior to the wax will clean away surface bacteria and greatly reduces the risk of this happening.

  1. PRE-WAXING OIL

Pre-Waxing Oil creates a barrier between the skin and the wax, giving the skin an additional layer of protection before and between applications. This prevents wax from sticking to the skin, meaning there’s no skin tugging or skin lifting, ultimately resulting in a reduction in sensation – a joy for you and a relief for your client!

A little oil goes a long way; you only need to massage a small amount onto the area, allowing the wax to firmly grip onto the unwanted hair and pull it directly from the root, skin unscathed!

  1. HOT WAX

Using a quality wax that can pull short stubborn hairs and leave no sticky residue. This will improve the results and help to ease any discomfort, leaving your client feeling completely satisfied and sure to return.

You can say goodbye to irritable and itchy stubble! When waxing, the skin will remain smooth from the renewal of the hair follicle to when the hair shaft reaches the skin’s surface. If hair is pulled from the root repeatedly, the hair follicle gets progressively weaker, and regrowth becomes sparser and finer. This also results in fewer ingrown hairs, so it’s a win-win for the skin!

  1. CLEANSE

Cleansing after waxing removes any stray particles from the surface of the skin that could otherwise enter the open follicles. This also encourages the follicles to close, preventing a potential reaction.

  1. POST CARE SELECTION

Finally, applying a finishing oil that contains active healing ingredients, such as Tea Tree or Aloe Vera, will help soothe any response from the skin during the procedure. Don’t forget, this completes the treatment so use this as a last opportunity to pamper your client when massaging the oil or lotion into the skin!
