Waxing & Electrolysis



The essential treatment! Bodywork Therapy uses warm wax for the waxing treatment. Clients comfort and hygiene are of utmost importance. Prior to waxing, the area to be waxed is cleansed with pre-wax and following waxing the area is wiped with cooling Dermalogica body cream to help protect the skin. Full aftercare information is provided following treatment.


Electrolysis is a very popular method of hair removal. It works by the use of inserting tiny pre-sterilised needles in the hair follicle. A split second impulse of current is then sent down the needle to the bottom of the hair follicle. This destroys the hair follicle allowing us to slide (and not pluck) the treated hair out. This process is repeated for each unwanted hair.

How long does it take?

Electrolysis typically consists of a series of treatments before the hair is permanently destroyed. But after each treatment the hair should grow back weaker and thinner. It also depends how thick or thin the unwanted hair is. For instance, someone who has been waxing or tweezing will need more treatments than someone who has not tampered with the area.

Is it painful?

Some clients do feel a slight discomfort but most clients say that the results far outweigh this.

What else do I need to know?

Although the area will be cleansed before and after the treatments, it is important not to touch the area or apply any perfumed products to the area for at least 24 hours. It is also common for the area to appear slightly red and possibly a little swollen after the treatment, but this should only be temporary. There is always a free consultation for every new client when we will be asking questions regarding medical health to ensure that you can undertake this treatment.
