Intimate Waxing FAQ's

It’s normal to be a little bit nervous about your first intimate wax and our foremost concern is that you feel comfortable with your treatment.

Here are the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions so that you can arrive feeling prepared and confident.

Please remember that all of our therapists are highly professional and are specially trained in intimate waxing; they do this all day every day and have seen it all before so you can relax knowing you’re in safe hands.

How long does my hair need to be?

If you normally shave, you need about a quarter of an inch of hair in order to give the wax something to adhere to, so keep this in mind when scheduling your appointment.

Do I remove my underwear?

Yes, your therapist will ask you to remove your clothing from the waist down. We can provide disposible briefs if you prefer, however this will slow your treatment down a little bit so most women choose to use a towel for modesty.
Your therapist will leave the room while you remove your clothing and get comfortable on the bed and won’t come in until you are ready. The therapist will leave you some wipes to freshen up and a clean towel to cover yourself on the bed.

Will it hurt?

No waxing is completely pain free but our advanced wax formulas and specially developed techniques guarantee the most comfortable waxing available, with minimal discomfort. waxu is generations ahead of a regular bikini wax so don’t let previous bad experiences put you off.
After your first waxing, the tiny hair follicles will shrink, so subsequent waxings will be less uncomfortable and hair growth will eventually diminish - win win!
Our best advice is to close your eyes, relax your muscles and take long, deep breaths.

How long will it take?

Waxu is an express intimate wax treatment! We aim to have you waxed within 20 minutes of arriving with us, so you'll be silky-smooth, fresh and fabulous and out the door before you know it. The actual treatment takes less than 10 minutes though first-time clients who are not regularly waxed may need to allow a little longer.

What products do you use?

Our products have been specially developed by us and are only available to waxu approved therapists. We use the most advanced hot and warm wax blends and luxury soothing pre and post-waxing oils.

Can I get a wax during my period?

Yes - as long as you’re wearing a tampon and you’re clean and fresh this won’t be a problem at all.

Can I get a wax if I am pregnant?

Absolutely! Although your skin may be more sensitive than usual, our advanced wax formulas and specially developed techniques mean that the treatment will still be perfectly fine.

What type of wax do you offer?

Our signature intimate wax removes all hair starting from the edge of your pant line right through to your inner and outer labia and all hair around your anus.
There is the option to leave a strip on your pubic mound a width and length of your choice, which you can discuss with your therapist. We don't charge extra for removing your strip as our signature wax is so thorough that it only takes us a second to remove it for you.
Remember, you're in control of your wax, so please tell your therapist your preferences and she can adjust the style to make it your own. Whatever you go for we guarantee waxu is a million miles from a standard bikini wax!

How long does it last?

As waxing removes hair from the root the results can last 3 to 6 weeks depending on the individual's hair re-growth. In most cases, hair growth is minimal during the first week or two and noticeably increases in the third and fourth week. Regular waxing will often cause the follicle to become damaged over time and will eventually cause hair to come back finer or just stop growing altogether.

I've got very sensitive skin, will this be a problem?

Absolutely not. waxu waxes are hypoallergenic and fragranced with aromatherapy oils and are extra gentle on your skin.
