A forearm wax includes the forearm, elbows and hands. This is a popular service for women who want to remove any dark or long hairs that we can sometimes get on our arms. This service is particular common in summer when we want to wear sleeveless clothes and may feel self conscious about any unwanted hair on our arms.
This service is done with a high quality strip wax. We cleanse the area with a cooling pre-cleanser then we apply a tiny amount of a protective oil and apply the wax. Our high quality strip wax is applied extremely thin and is far more comfortable on the skin than traditional honey waxes of the past. Once the wax has been applied, it is removed with paper strips in small sections. We then apply an after wax oil to soothe and calm the skin after the service and to remove any sticky residue that may be left behind.
For 24 hours after your wax it is important to keep your arms out of the sun (whether this is the natural sun or using a sun bed). If you like to go to the gym it’s important for you to plan your waxing session around that, as you are advised not to do any strenuous exercise for 24 hours after your wax it is perfectly fine to go to the gym before your waxing session but not after
You also need to avoid anything heat related such as swimming pools, saunas, steam rooms and anything with fragrance or other perfumes. It’s best to only stick to products recommend by your therapist for the first 24 hours after your wax as these products will be suitable for freshly waxed skin.
We recommend having this service done every 3 to 4 weeks to maintain results.
