Why Lycon waxing?
Developed by an Australian aesthetician named Lydia Jordane, Lycon waxing is already hugely popular in London and reported to be the wax of choice for a number of leading spas, salons and celebrities across the globe. Setting it apart from its competitors, Lycon waxing is able to remove stubborn hairs, making it an ideal choice for sensitive areas such as bikini lines, underarms or the face.
What happens during a Lycon waxing treatment?
Firstly, your beauty therapist will cleanse the area to be waxed before applying oil to the area. The oil allows the wax to effectively shrink-wrap the hair, but it won't stick to the skin. And because there's less of a pull on your skin when the wax is removed, it won't hurt as much.
A hot wax is then applied in a thick layer to a small area and left to cool and harden for around 20 seconds. It is then quickly stripped away, taking the hairs with it.
Once the area is fully hair-free, a soothing gel is appliedto reduce any redness and swelling and you're free to go.
Does Lycon waxing hurt?
Compared to traditional waxing, Lycon waxing is almost pain free. It's over so quickly that you barely have time to register any real discomfort and there's no stinging afterwards.
