Please note that all male waxing appointments can only be booked in with Rita Akos.
Waxing is by far the most popular service amongst our clients. A temporary solution to hair removal at Urban Retreat we use both hot wax and strip wax. Hot wax is great for much coarser stubborn hair as it wraps the hair whereas strip wax works better with finer hair. Your therapist may utilise both techniques to get the desired result.
Laser Hair Removal
The virtually pain free Soprano laser is the UK's leading laser for hair removal. FDA approved and able to treat all skin types and colour, although it is not suitable for skin that has been recently chemically or naturally tanned. The latest technology uses an integrated cooling system and motion technology to target even the finest of hair follicles.
During your consultation you will gather a full understanding of how the laser works, the benefits of having laser as well as pre and post care advice alongside a patch test. All consultations are redeemable against the cost of your treatment.
Following on from your initial consultation and hair assessment, please ensure that you shave the treatment site prior to your appointment. This will prevent sensitivity and ensure the most effective treatment outcome. If you attend unprepared, shaving will in-corporate a £10 fee per session.
