This wax removed hair from around the nipples only. This service is included as standard in all our chest waxing services but we have priced it separately here for people who don’t have much hair and just want to remove any stray hairs from around their nipples.
We use a mixture of hot wax and strip wax for this service. A protective layer of oil is applied to the skin and the hot wax is applied in a slightly thick layer and let to set. As the wax cools it shrink wraps itself around the hair, and once fully set it is removed taking only unwanted hair away, leaving the skin far less irritated than with traditional waxing. For finer hairs we will remove them with our high quality strip wax, this wax is far thinner than traditional honey wax and so is more comfortable. We find that a mixture of the two waxes is normally the best fo this service as you can have both very coarse and very fine hair throughout the chest.
For the best results you hair needs to be about the size of a grain of rice. A good rule of thumb is you need at least 3 weeks growth from your last shave or 4 weeks from your last wax. While it is possible to wax sooner than this, we normally don’t recommend it as you will be left with some shorter hairs. Waiting the right amount of time will make sure you get the best results possible.
To avoid any possible discomfort we recommend avoiding alcohol and caffeine for a few hours before your waxing appointment. These stimulants can make your skin extra sensitive to waxing.
For very sensitive people we also stock No Scream Cream. This topical cream uses 20% benzocaine which numbs the area and must be applied at least 45 minutes before your appointment. It really helps to reduce the sting associated with waxing. It can be purchased ahead of your appointment in our online shop.
