Harley aloe vera hot film wax

Our Harley aloe vera hot film wax, which is very similar to its sister Lycon wax, is extremely calming on the skin. We use Harley wax for waxing any delicate areas with coarse hair, such as Bikini waxing, Thong waxing, Brazilian waxing, Hollywood waxing, Underarm waxing and Facial waxing. We start with an aloe vera cleanser and soothing pre oil, then we apply the wax which is melted to the perfect temperature. This wax is used to remove short stubborn hairs in those sensitive areas. This is completed by applying a cooling aloe vera cream which will leave the area soothed and reduce the redness.

Green Tea Strip Wax

Our green tea strip wax is used for the larger areas with finer hair, such as leg waxing, back waxing, chest waxing and arm waxing. This cream based wax will leave your skin feeling hydrated with less chance of leaving a sticky residue. After cleansing the area we then follow with a layer of talcum powder which acts as a protective layer for your skin. The wax is applied evenly and removed with paper waxing strips. A layer of soothing aloe vera cream is then applied. Our waxing therapists are highly trained and use fast and efficient waxing techniques that are virtually painless. We promise it will be over in no time!

Standards and recommended advice

It’s rare that anyone looks forward to a wax, however, when it’s done by the right person, you will be surprised how easy and virtually pain-free it can be. At bodytonic clinic, our waxers are highly professional, fast and discreet in their work, providing the very best waxing in London.

You may have sensitive skin or it might be your first wax appointment, but rest assured, our waxing therapists will make you as comfortable as possible. We only use the best products and type of wax and aftercare products that are very gentle on your skin, whilst also being effective at removing even the most stubborn hairs. We’re certain you will leave happy with the results!

Due to our high hygiene standards we only use a spatula once per area, this keeps our wax fresh and clean from any cross-contamination. This has become known in the beauty industry as “double-dipping”. As customer safety and satisfaction is a top priority we ensure we stick to this process.

We recommend that prior to your waxing you always give yourself a good exfoliation on the area being treated, e.g. the full leg area or tops and sides of the Hollywood area. Customers of our waxing beauty salon say the best waxing in London results are achieved by using exfoliating mitts. This will ensure that all the hairs and skin are ready for removal and give you the best wax possible.

Regular maintenance and best waxing

To maintain the best waxing results, we would recommend regular waxing, about every 4-6 weeks. Try to avoid shaving the areas in between sessions as this will cause it to be more painful and the waxing hair may be too strong or short for the wax to pull out the hair. Waxing Hair needs to be about 1/2cm long for it to be effectively removed. This will ensure you get the smoothest wax and best results. If the waxing hair is longer than 1cm we suggest you give it a trim, especially in the more sensitive bikini line areas.

What are the different bikini waxing types?

There are several different Bikini waxing styles you can choose from. From a Basic Bikini line wax, to a High Bikini wax (our Thong wax) and a Brazilian wax London to a Hollywood wax London. Not everyone is familiar with what all these waxing styles include – so below you will see our basic guide:

What is a bikini line wax?

This is a great place to start for nervous first-time waxers, the Bikini line wax is what it says, just the sides, which means we remove the hair that would be outside your normal knicker or bikini line. This is a great tidy up and perfect if you just want to neaten the area. At bodytonic clinic we will make sure we take a bit from the tops of the thighs too and any hair that bothers you around that line, leaving the area silky smooth.

What is a High Bikini line wax, Thong wax or G-string wax?

This waxing style is still a tidy and natural bikini wax, but often people get confused about what it includes. It is called many names high bikini line wax, thong wax or g-string wax and can be higher on the sides of the bikini line or lower on the top, just let us know your preference! As the above names suggest, this wax means that all the hair that is outside your thong or g-string is removed. Hair is removed very low down on the inner thighs and very high on the upper bikini line, with a straight section removed on the top for neatness. It’s a great option for those going on holiday but who don’t dare to have the complete removal like a Hollywood wax.

What is a Brazilian wax London?

This is where waxing gets a bit more intimate! All the hair is removed from the sides and inside the labia, we also wax all around the back, (bum area) including the bum cheeks if needed. The only hair remaining is a strip or triangle as chosen by you. Quite often in a waxing treatment people can and do change their minds, so it’s so important to let your therapist know at the start what you would like your end results to be. As once it’s off it can’t go back on. We often get asked, “What is the difference between Hollywood and Brazilian waxing London?” The simple answer is there is hair left on the top in the Brazilian wax and there is no hair left at all in the Hollywood wax.

What is a Hollywood wax?

The Hollywood wax is the most popular wax, plainly put we remove all the hair from the top, front, sides of your bikini area and full back (bum area). To ensure a perfectly smooth Hollywood wax you would be required to take everything off on the bottom half, so no knickers! Remember it is nothing we haven’t seen before as we have a joint experience of over 20 years waxing these sensitive areas, so you are in good hands!

What to expect on your 1st waxing treatment 

 When you arrive for your appointment, your therapist will ask you what specific bikini style you would like and if you would like disposable bikini line briefs. You will be left to get undressed, once we return we make sure you are comfortable. We start by applying pre-wax oil, to protect sensitive skin, then we apply the wax on top. For all our bikini waxes we use only Harley Aloe Vera Film hot wax, which is very similar to the well-known brand Lycon wax London. For the Hollywood wax especially we will apply to as many areas as quickly as possible, as no one wants to be there longer than needed, efficiency is the name of the game. With a very quick flick of the wrist, the wax is removed and the area is soothed to minimise the pain. Brazilian and Hollywood waxing shouldn’t take more than 25 minutes. We then apply a soothing aloe vera cream and you are ready to head home. It will be over in no time! *10% discount available on your 1st treatment if booked online. *20% discount available on all combination waxing. i.e. Hollywood & Full leg or Brazilian, Half leg & Full arm. *30% discount is a combination of the above on your 1st treatment. 10% Discount is on 1st treatment only & cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer. Waxing Eyebrows, Lip, Chin, Eyebrow or Eyelash Tint are excluded excluded from the 20% combination discount. Online discounts are not available on medical, osteopathy or foot health appointments.

What is leg waxing?

bodytonic clinic offers both full and half leg waxing. Full leg waxing includes the feet and all the way up to the bikini line. Half leg waxing is either the bottom half of the leg including knees and feet or top half including knees and up to the bikini line. We use a cream-based strip wax for these areas which removes the hair gently on the waxing strips and leaves the skin hydrated and smooth.

How long does leg waxing last?

Anagen Catagen Telogen Hair growth Phases Waxing london bodytonic clinic

Normally we would say your legs should remain silky smooth for approximately 2-3 weeks, with your next wax due around 4-6 weeks. This is not a straightforward answer though, so let us explain a little more to help you achieve the best waxing in London results. Your hair has 3 stages of growth, AnagenTelogen and Catagen and to help you understand your waxing cycle please see below. 

    Anagen – Active growth phase:

    • This is the first stage of growth, the hair bulb at the base of the hair follicle divides quickly and produces a new hair.
    • The hair can grow approximately 1cm in a month.
    • This is the best time to wax, as the area will be hair free for longer.
    • If the hair is waxed at this stage it will lead to eventual reduction in hair growth.
    • 80-90% of your hair will be in this phase at the same time.

    Catagen – 2nd growth stage

    • This is the end of the active growing phase and the start of the resting stage for the follicle.
    • The hair stops growing and starts to become a club hair.
    • The follicle will become about a 6th is original size, pushing the old hair out.
    • This phase lasts about 2-3 weeks.
    • This is not an ideal time for you to get waxed, but will still removes the hair on their area.

    Telogen phase – Resting phase

    • Every 1-4 months the follicle goes into a dormant period to regenerate.
    • The hair will eventually shed by itself, this can take 1-4 months.
    • 10-15% of your hair can be in this phase at any given time.
    • Waxing in this phase is not recommended as the hair is detached from the follicle already and a new hair maybe forming below.

    So in order to get the best waxing in London results you need to have as many of your hairs in the growing phase as possible. The best way to do this is get in a regular routine of waxing to align hair growth cycles.

    4-6 weeks is an ideal amount of time between waxing as the hair is still in the active growing phase.

    If you have two hair growth phases we suggest coming for 2-3 waxes in close succession, 2-3 weeks apart. This will start to ensure they are all growing actively together, you may notice the area is more hairy, this is simply because all hair is growing at the same time. Once we have all the hair growing at the same time you will notice the wax smoothness lasts longer and the hair will start to thin out and eventually disappear.

    What is arm waxing?

    Arm waxing can include underarm waxing, half arm waxing, full arm waxing or hands. As your underarm area is very sensitive, for this we use Harley aloe vera hot wax, so this is similar to the techniques used in Brazilian and Hollywood waxing. We also do full arm waxing, which is the whole arm including hands. The half arms include the hand and will go up to the elbow. We use cream strip wax on these areas, the same as leg waxing, leaving the skin smooth and silky. Most of our clients love getting their arms done before a beach holiday for that extra glow.

    What is the best Facial waxing technique?

    At Bodytonic Clinic, we will only use aloe vera hot wax on the sensitive facial areas, which is Harley wax, similar to sister brand Lycon wax. As with all the sensitive areas, we apply pre-oil first to protect your skin then by making sure the wax is at the right temperature, we apply the wax to the facial area. We then remove it with care, making sure we are holding the skin tight. Following up with tweezing of every last hair if needed. This is the best technique in our opinion, as it makes sure the skin is treated gently and has no chance of ripping or cutting the skin as with other techniques such as strip wax or threading.

    What areas can males wax?

    For male waxing we offer back, chest, legs and facial waxing. Unfortunately we do not offer mens waxing intimate waxing but can give recommendations upon request of great male intimate waxing salons in London.

    • Back waxing: We wax the whole back up to the hair line and top of shoulders. This is a very quick wax despite the large area. We start by using powder to prep and apply cream strip wax to remove all the hair. You will be out in no time!
    • Chest waxing: This area is the same as the back, just the front. We remove all hair from the chest up to the throat and down to just below the belly button. Just be warned that chest waxing can be a little bit more sensitive, especially around the throat, nipple and belly areas.
    • Facial waxing and leg waxing: We treat the facial area and waxing legs of a male with the same waxing products as female facial and leg waxing,With facial waxing we take the greatest caution to make sure it all looks natural.

    Waxing aftercare advice

    Here are some guidelines to ensure that your skin is cared for after your waxing. The following reactions are quite common after waxing and are normal and temporary reactions. All should subside within 24hrs:

    • Heat reaction
      • Post treatment could be seen on the skin for several hours following your wax. This could be in the form of slight soreness, small bumps or redness of your skin. This varies person to person from a mild redness to a much stronger reaction such as hives
    • Waxing aftercare Skin sensitivity advice
      • Try to avoid very hot baths, showers, steam rooms, saunas and Jacuzzis for 24 hours
      • Skin sensitivity to UV light. Please avoid sun-beds and sunbathing for 24 hours, as more intense burning could occur
      • Avoid applying fake tan to your skin for 24 hours
      • Don’t apply deodorant or anything perfumed for 24 hours
      • Avoid wearing tight clothing, such as skinny jeans and tights for 24 hours

    If the waxing aftercare advice given is followed your skin should return to normal within 24 hours. If any reaction is still present after this time, it may be an allergic reaction to the wax so please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any problems.

    What do ingrown hairs look like?

    Ingrown hairs occur when a new hair is trying to break through the skin and then curls back into the pore instead, often resulting in a spot or in the worst case ingrown hair cyst. They can appear as just a hair under the skin, small red bumps or the area can be very painful and inflamed. Ingrown hairs can appear on your legs, bikini line, underarms and even your waxing face. Hair removal can often worsen the situation especially if you are prone to ingrown hairs.

    How to prevent ingrown Hairs?

    Advice for all areas bikini line waxing such as Hollywood and all body waxing, leg waxing , back waxing and chest waxing the following is advisable:

    • Wear loose fitting clothing after the waxing session for 24 hours
    • Gently exfoliate your skin 24-48 hours after your appointment
    • Between waxing appointments exfoliate 3-4 times a week
    • Exfoliating the skin using antibacterial body wash may help if the ingrown hairs are inflamed. Use one with a natural fragrance. Something with tea tree or essential oils will be advised, for example tea tree or peppermint. This can be applied with exfoliating mitts.
    • Once the hair has started to grow back, usually around 3-4 weeks, we advise that you exfoliate every day, this will help all the hairs come to the surface straight away and avoid becoming ingrown
    • Moisturise the area daily which will keep the skin supple and help new hairs to break through. Once again don’t use anything too perfumed

    To maintain the best waxing results and keep on top of ingrown hairs, we would recommend regular waxing, about every 4-6 weeks. Avoid shaving the areas in between sessions as this will cause it to be more painful and the hair may be too strong or short or turn back into the skin causing ingrown hairs

    How to prevent ingrown hair on the face

    Breakout of spots can occur on the area of the face you have recently had waxed after treatment. This can lead to ingrown hairs as the follicle shaft will have been blocked during the breakout. To prevent ingrown hairs on the face we have a few suggestions to follow:

    • Exfoliate skin a minimum of 24 hours after receiving your waxing treatment. Use a mild chemical exfoliator, we recommend a good Glycolic acid.
    • Using a mechanical exfoliator, such as an exfoliating cloth or brush, a minimum of 24 hours after receiving your treatment, this will heal white heads if they have developed.

    Gently repeating the above every other day for up to 3-7 days or until the spots disappear. This will ensure the follicle is clean and heals therefore preventing future ingrown hairs.

    What should I do with a waxing burn?

    Waxing burn, bruising and patches of skin removal can sometimes happen due to the fact we are using hot wax to remove hairs which are made from the same substance as your skin – Keratin. Receiving burns during a waxing appointment is very rare. We always use the utmost caution by applying talcum powder to your skin before the green tea strip wax and waxing strips. For Harley aloe vera hot wax the procedure is slightly different, in that we would apply pre-oil before the wax is applied, but sometimes mishaps occur.

    If you are prone to waxing burns for any of the following reasons please notify your therapist before treatment, so we can use extra care while waxing.

    • Recent sunburn or extreme sun exposure
    • Very dry or dehydrated skin
    • Areas of loose skin
    • Extremely sensitive skins e.g. eczema and psoriasis
    • Wax temperature (either to hot or cold)
    • Certain waxing removal techniques
    • For facial areas specifically
    • Overuse of exfoliating products
    • Overuse of Vitamin A or Retinol
    • Extremely Sensitive skins
    • Recent facials / peels (within the last 7 days)
    • Recent facial aesthetics (within the last month)

    If your therapist notices any marks in treatment they will advise you what has happened and offer the best aftercare. Sometimes the redness does not appear immediately and once you’re home you may notice this.

    What is Sugar waxing London and do we do it?

    I am sure you have heard about sugar waxing or sugaring for hair removal by now. In simple terms, sugar waxing or sugaring for hair removal is a way of removing unwanted hair without using traditional waxing methods. Simply put, sugaring removes hair from your body by rolling the product onto the skin at the correct temperature, then they start to remove the sugaring mixture. People believe that this is less painful than traditional waxing. However, we believe you get better results with ALOE VERA hot waxing and our strip waxing creme base. When you have a traditional wax done by a professional and using the right wax, it can be virtually pain-free. We know you will be surprised how easy and virtually pain-free our waxers are able to do your waxing, while also keeping your skin moisturised, with antioxidant-rich green tea which soothes and calms.
