Eyebrow Waxing is a non-invasive treatment that offers a quick, straightforward and long-lasting solution to shaping and defining your brows. We’ve all plucked, shaved and trimmed our brows before, especially when we are trying to impress. However, all these methods and techniques take a great deal of time and effort to perform, with some of us seemingly locked in a constant battle to get our eyebrows looking how we want them to.
Microblading and Eyebrow Threading are alternative ways of achieving precise and perfect brows, yet these options tend to cause some discomfort, take a good chunk of time and are expensive. So if you’re searching for a quick and easy option but still want guaranteed results, then our Eyebrow Waxing treatment can help you get brows that Instagrammers would truly describe as “on fleek”.
How Does It Work?
Eyebrow Waxing is a common and straightforward treatment that was popularised in Eastern Europe. It involves spreading a thin layer of wax over an area of unwanted hair. A strip of fabric (usually cloth) is then placed on top of the wax before being pulled away in a rapid motion to remove both the unwanted hair and the wax.
There are two methods of waxing: hot waxing and cold waxing. Cold wax strips are usually pre-cut to different sizes and do not need to be heated. Hot wax, on the other hand, is the more popular method of treatment. This wax is heated and applied to a small area of unwanted hair. As the wax cools, it melts onto the skin and clings to each individual strand of hair. A cloth strip is then applied to the wax and pressed down. After a couple of seconds, this is quickly pulled off to leave a clear, hair-free patch of skin.
When this process has been completed, your brows will be groomed and any extra hair will be trimmed with small scissors. A brow massage will also be offered to help soothe and relax the waxed area.
Am I Suitable For Treatment?
Waxing is suitable for almost anyone. If you have thick, fast-growing eyebrow hair that is becoming annoying or causing you distress, then you should consider Eyebrow Waxing.
Prior to treatment, we always hold a consultation with our patients. This allows us to devise the best treatment plan for you as well as discuss the results you can expect to achieve. During this consultation, our clinicians will look at your medical history to see if you have any conditions that could cause complications during treatment, e.g. sensitive skin, or if you are taking any medication that could affect the waxing process.

Your first wax strip might hurt a little but the pain becomes more manageable each time. This is definitely nothing to worry about and most patients find that the anticipation and anxiety in the run-up to treatment tends to be worse than the procedure itself!
There are usually very side effects, however, this can vary from patient to patient and is dependent on the sensitivity of your skin.
Results typically last around four to six weeks, though this depends how quickly your eyebrows usually regrow. It is worth noting that the more treatments you have, the lighter and thinner your eyebrow hair will become. This reduces the need to undergo quite so many top-up treatments.
