Waxing & Electrolysis
Waxing and electrolysis should be very near pain free. In the right hands this is the case. Here at Chrysalis we take great care and constantly research the best possible methods and wax to make your hair removal as comfortable as possible. To date we have changed the manufacturer of the wax we use around 7 times. Each time we have done this we have asked for your feedback and the client communication has been great. We feel that our consistant improvement in waxing and electrolysis make us the best.
Electrolysis is for permanent hair removal. The removal of hair is done by an electric current. By following the hair follicle down to the root, the current is used to cauterize the root to loosen its grip on the hair. Electrolysis is usually applied to small areas. Ie. Lip and chin. This is due to the number of hairs that are in a specific area as each hair is treated individually. Each time the current is passed through the root, the root becomes weaker thus making the hair thinner and more easily removed on future occasions. At Chrysalis we believe that we perform this treatment correctly. As obvious as this may seem we hear many concerns from current clients that have had electrolysis at other salons and inform us that it hurts. Some to the point that they may have scarring if they continue having the treatment. Here that will not happen. We slide the needle down the follicle following the path of the hair. When we get to the root we start off with as low current as possible, gently increasing to as much as is required. When the root has been cauterized by the correct current we remove the hair that is already detached from the root and then move on to the next hair and follow the same process. This treatment should not be painful and to prove just how the treatment should be, we offer a FREE 5 Minute trial so you can see for yourself.
Please note: At present this treatment is only available at our Lytham salon. There are plans for this to be introduced at Cleveleys sometime in the future.
Waxing is possibly the most popular form of hair removal. This is because of the speed and results.
The benefits of waxing are:
Finer, softer hairs
No regrowth for 1-2 weeks
Smooth legs and underarms
We do it for you.
With waxing the hair is pulled out at the root. This process weakens the follicle which leads to thinner and eventually zero hair growth. Virtually any hair can be waxed. We cater for all areas of the body and face. At Chrysalis we use 2 different kinds of wax. Azulene with its calming and soothing effects for the normal day to day waxing and hard wax for those delicate areas such as Hollywood. You may not believe it to start with, but the longer you have waxing for the easier it gets. Waxing has many other benefits such as eyebrow waxing, which can add definition to 'frame the face' and also time saving.
