Lycon Wax

Why Lycon?

  • We use the Lycon waxing system to provide you with the best results but with minimal discomfort.
  • Lycon’s unique ‘shrink wrapping’ technology removes short and stubborn hair from the root.
  • Lycon’s unique pre waxing oil is applied prior to hot waxing.  This prevents the wax sticking to the skin, making your waxing experience less painful.
  • Lycon removes hairs from the roots encouraging finer, softer hair re-growth and will achieve longer lasting results.
  • Lycon’s super pliable and gentle wax removes the shortest hair from the root, this eliminates ingrown hairs which can be caused by the hair breaking at skin level.

Before your wax.

  • On the day of your appointment, exfoliate the area and keep if free of deodorant, body lotions or creams.
  • Trim hair for Brazilian and bikini down to 1cm
  • Avoid sunless tanning and sun exposure for 24 hours
  • Please let us know if you are using any skin lightening or bleaching products. These may contain a very harsh ingredient called hydroquinone which can thin the skin. It is to advisable to have a wax in these circumstances.
  • Please let us know if you are on your period or about to begin your period. Women feel more pain immediately before and after their period so it's important that the therapist knows.

After your wax.

  • Please follow the guidelines below to ensure your skin is cared for properly over the next few days.
  • Some slight soreness, small bumps and redness are common and perfectly normal temporary reactions, particularly if this is your first wax, these symptoms should subside over the next 24-48 hours.
  • Some people may have more dramatic reactions, especially after sun exposure. Your skin may begin to overproduce melanin and cause you to have patches of dark skin. This will subside after some time. Please keep the affected areas out of the sun.
  • Keep the area clean and wear loose, breathable clothing.
  • Try to avoid heat and friction during the next 24-48 hours, such as, hot baths or showers, saunas, hot tubs, steam treatments, tanning, exercising and swimming.
  • Do not apply deodorants, body sprays, powders, lotions or other products to the area, other than those recommended by Embellie salon staff.
  • Please try not to shave in between waxing, as this distorts the hair growth cycle.
  • To help prevent ingrown hairs, gently scrub the skin 3 times a week in the bath or shower, start this 3 days after your treatment.
  • You may notice a small amount of regrowth after a week or so, it can take up to 4 treatments for your hair to get on a growth cycle. To maintain your smooth appearance, regular waxing is recommended every 4-6 weeks.
