Unwanted Hair Removal – Overview
We have been managing unwanted hair issues for our clients for 20 years, so whatever your unwanted hair concerns are, we have the answer.
Your therapist will be able to advise you during your initial consultation appointment as to the system that will give the best and most economical result in your particular case.
Electrolysis in Kent
Electrolysis is performed by inserting a very fine, flexible needle into the follicle (the pocket where the hair sits in your skin).
Your therapist then skilfully applies a tiny amount of current and destroys the lower part of the follicle, which stops any more hairs growing from that particular follicle. The destruction is carried out by heat (thermolysis).
Several hairs will be treated in each session and a commitment to regular appointments is essential to catch all the hairs in any one area due to the hair cycle. Most areas of the face and body can be treated successfully with electrolysis but for larger areas, or for dark hair on the face, we recommend VPL.
Waxing in Kent
We use the safe and hygienic roller waxing system and traditional hot wax.
Waxing is a form of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for four to six weeks, although some people will start to see re growth in only a week due to some of their hair being on a different growth cycle.
Almost any area of the body can be waxed.
Strip waxing is accomplished by rollering a wax thinly over the skin. A paper strip is applied and pressed firmly, adhering the strip to the wax and the wax to the skin. The strip is then quickly ripped against the direction of hair growth, as parallel as possible leaving smooth, hairless skin behind.
Abi is now offering hot wax Hollywood waxing.
For a treatment that involves a certain level of discomfort and possibly even a little bit of embarrassment, it might be considered surprising that intimate waxing treatments – including anything from a basic bikini to the full works (otherwise known as a Hollywood) – are now one of the most popular waxing treatments that we offer. We can provide a comfortable, speedy and efficient intimate wax with hot or strip (warm) wax.
Here we explain about the difference between hot and warm waxing for sensitive areas, so here’s the science to explain why hot wax is better suited than warm wax, for intimate areas:
Unlike warm wax, which sticks to the skin, hot wax grips the hair itself by shrink-wrapping around the hair shaft when applied. This makes it much better than warm wax at removing the stronger, coarser terminal hairs that appear on the bikini line. It also makes the waxing experience slightly more comfortable when working on a sensitive and delicate area such as the bikini area, because the wax doesn’t just stick to the skin.
Another benefit to this shrink-wrapping effect, is that the hot wax is able to grip even very short hairs, works with a lower temperature than the traditiional roller wax and is specifically designed for sensitive areas.
VPL Hair Removal in Kent
VPL HAIR REMOVAL 3 x more powerful than IPL
This quick, effective and safe treatment offers an unsurpassed long-lasting hair removal solution.
All hair is different
The VPL treatment has been clinically proven to remove hair from all parts of the face and body. The variable settings mean that it can effectively treat the different types of hair found all over the body, from thicker bikini hair to finer facial hair.
The VPL treatment uses short, safe controlled pulses of filtered light to remove unwanted hair in minutes. Pulses of red light are absorbed by melanin, the pigment found in hair. This absorption process heats the hair, damaging the follicle, along with its ability to regenerate. Hundreds of hair follicles are damaged with each pulse, resulting in an easy and effective way to treat unwanted hair. The treatment is quick, painless & effective.
Hairs treated will fall out naturally over a period of one to three weeks leaving your skin feeling smooth and looking silky. Due to the growth stages that all hair goes through, several treatments may be required to help prevent hair growth in the treatment area.
All hair growth cycles are slightly different but your therapist will review and adjust the setting progressively throughout the treatment program to achieve the best possible results as quickly as possible.
Threading in Kent – more definition, less sensitivity
Threading is an ancient method of hair removal originating in India.
A thin (cotton or polyester) thread is doubled, then twisted. It is then rolled over areas of unwanted hair, plucking the hair at follicle level. Unlike tweezing, where single hairs are pulled out one at a time, threading can remove short lines of hair.
Advantages cited for eyebrow threading, as opposed to eyebrow waxing, are that it provides more precise control and defined shape for eyebrows and is gentler on the skin. It can be painful as several hairs are removed at once: however done professionally, this can is minimised.
