When Not to Wax!
Waxing is appropriate for almost everyone but not recommended for people suffering from diabetes or those who have varicose veins or poor circulation as they are more susceptible to infection. Users of Retin-A, Renova, Differin or Isotertinoin are advised not to wax, the medications tend to weaken the skin and tearing of the skin may occur when the wax is removed. Waxing should not be carried out on areas of skin affected by warts, pimples, moles or rashes or on skin that is irritated, chapped or suffering sunburn. It is the responsibility of the client to discuss any concerns, conditions or medications that may result in contra-indications for waxing when you have your initial consultation.
If you are having the intimate waxing you will need to get naked from the waist down to get a perfect result, so you need to leave your modesty at the door. However, if you are not comfortable we will provide you with a towel to cover up although your treatment may take longer. If you choose to wear your own knickers, we cannot assume responsibility for any oil or wax splashed onto the fabric.
At DeVyne Spa our therapists are wax professionals. There will be no happy endings and no extras. We understand that feeling anxious can cause all kinds of reactions, but this will not affect the treatment itself. As long as everything remains professional we will continue with the treatment.
