Intimate Waxing – The Intimate Facts You Should Know

Waxing is one of the most popular treatments in our Peterborough salon – during any one month we will perform over 150 intimate waxes for ladies looking to groom their lady gardens.

Intimate waxing is hair removal from the pubic region. Procedures start from having a bikini shape to complete hair removal.

Here is our beginners’ guide so that you can work out which would suit you best:

What happens at my first waxing treatment?

We use the highest quality waxing products that have been developed by top waxing specialists. Our therapists all have specialist intimate waxing training and will explain the procedure clearly before they commence your first treatment.

Every person’s skin behaves differently after intimate waxing. You may end up with some irritation or redness but we offer after care advice and products that help soothe the skin. Most clients agree that it isn’t a painful treatment and that it is best described as a little uncomfortable.

However, the whole treatment from beginning to end takes only about 20-30 minutes so it is not prolonged discomfort and it is worth it for the end result which makes most people feel really good; sexy and ultra hygienic.


How Old Should you be to have intimate waxing?

Most salons’ policy on this is that the client should be at least 18. It is possible to have a wax treatment if you are 16 but most salons would require parents’ consent.


How Often Will You Require Intimate Waxing?

95% of our clients come in every 4 weeks. Regular waxing sessions result in hair that grows back finer and is more easily waxed, which is a win-win situation.


Can I Shave In Between Sessions?

You will need at least 4 weeks’ growth for an intimate wax so it is a good idea not to shave in between as this will knock your waxing schedule out of kilter.


How Long Should The Hair Be?

For your first few sessions the longer the hair, the easier the wax. Approximately 5mms-10mms is a good length for waxing.


What If I Have Coarse Hair?

The hair will become finer over time as you have waxing treatments so this is another advantage to having waxing. It will help the treatment of coarse hair if the length of the hair is about 10mms in length.


How Long Does An Intimate Waxing Treatment Take?

Treatments can take anywhere from 15 minutes for a basic bikini wax to 30 minutes for a Hollywood waxing. However, even for a Hollywood waxing this can come down to about 25 minutes after the first few sessions, as you become more accustomed to the treatment.


Who is Kim Lawless?

Kim Lawless is regarded as a leading authority on waxing in the UK. She is dedicated to providing the highest standard of waxing and is a wax therapist trainer who has developed her own unique techniques for both male and female waxing.

All the therapists in our salon have been trained in the Kim Lawless waxing techniques and it shows. Therapists trained by Kim are particularly attuned to making the experience as comfortable as possible for the client. They recognise that there is more to a waxing treatment than just ripping off the wax as quickly as possible. We highly recommend that you seek out a salon whose therapists have been trained in the Kim Lawless techniques.

Hot waxing for intimate areas becomes more popular each year. If you are considering intimate waxing but have concerns, this is natural. However, hopefully this information will have allayed your fears because if you are in the hands of a good therapist the discomfort will be minimised and the benefits will far, far outweigh a slightly uncomfortable treatment experience.
