Frequently asked questions
There a few questions I get asked on a regular basis so I've compiled them here. If there's anything else you'd like to know, please feel free to ask via the contact form.
What’s the difference between a Hollywood and a Brazilian wax?
A Brazilian wax involves all hair being removed from the vulva and the back but keeps a small triangle or strip in the front. A Hollywood wax involves removing all wax from the front and the back.
How long do LVL lashes last?
It depends on how quickly your lashes grow but generally they last 6-8 weeks.
Do skin peels hurt?
Some peels can have a mild tingling sensation but your comfort is my priority in choosing any treatment and I'll ensure you're happy after applying any product to your skin.
What type of wax do you use?
I use both hot wax and strip wax. I use hot wax for senstive areas like the bikini line and strip wax for larger areas with finer hair like legs.
Can I have Dermalux LED Phototherapy if I’m on medication?
Please let me know if you're on medication before having any treatment and I can check if it’s safe for you to have the requested treatment.
Can I have Dermalux LED Phototherapy if I’m pregnant?
Unfortunately the dermalux treatments aren’t suitable for pregnant women. This is simply because the machine hasn’t been tested on pregnant women so it's recommended you wait until after you’ve given birth before starting a course.
How painful is micro-needling?
EDS shouldn’t be painful and has a good comfort level. I’ll apply a topical anesthetic before hand which numbs the skin. It can have a tingling sensation but shouldn’t be uncomfortable.
