Waxing

Our beauty therapists are highly skilled, and have mastered effective waxing techniques, to give you a quick, painless and thorough waxing treatment.

Waxing Methods

At the Ivy, we offer a choice of two different types of wax:

Strip wax

The warmed wax is spread thinly and evenly over the skin surface, on top of which a cloth or paper strip is then pressed. This strip is eventually ripped off in a quick movement, against the direction of hair growth. This removes the wax, along with the hair. We use Australian Body Care wax, which contains tea tree oil. Tea tree oil is a totally natural and unique skin friendly oil with antiseptic qualities to promote skin healing.

Hot wax

Sometimes referred to as hard wax; where the hot wax is applied in a substantially thick layer, ensuring a thorough coating of each hair. As it cools down, the wax hardens and becomes easy to be removed, without the aid of any material strips, taking all the hair with it.

This type of waxing is beneficial for more sensitive areas of the body such as underarms and intimate waxing, as it is less painful, and it also reduces the chance of getting any ingrowing hairs afterwards.

Lycon Hot wax uses only the finest resins, natural ingredients and aromatherapy oils, delivering superior performance, and removing stubborn hair as short as 1mm.
