I was invited to Urbana on Wicklow Street by Paula last week to experience their Lycon hot waxing treatment. Urbana are experts in hair removal through waxing and laser so I was excited to visit them. I usually wax every time I get my Shellac done as a rule of thumb, but on the run up to this I felt like I’d let the garden overgrow and as I waited in the plush reception area I started to feel almost sorry for the person about to wax me!
Jenny was my wax technician for my George W and upon meeting her I was instantly relaxed by her chatty personality. I let Jenny know that while I didn’t find waxing painful, I was a bit of a flincher and she was likely to get my knee in her chest once or twice throughout the treatment. She laughed it off and said ”No worries”..
I have never had a Lycon wax before, so for those of you who don’t know the procedure it’s a hot waxing system that does not utilise strips, which gives you better precision for removing the hair. Firstly, a pre-wax oil was applied to give an extra protective layer. Jenny used a a combination of the Lycon Purple and Pink hot peelable wax. The purple wax was used to removed my lighter, downy hairs and the pink wax was used for the coarser hairs. Everything smells really good too, there’s hints of lavender and rose.
Now, while I am a guinea pig and I am happy to put myself forward for treatments, this was one instance where I was praying I didn’t have inflated lips 😉 I had no need to fear Jenny was so quick and exact with my wax that I was left pain free, I didn’t flinch and I was left as smooth as a baby’s bottom. I was delighted with the speed and that George had left the building..
After such a successful wax, I will be entrusting my bikini and armpit area into the trusted hands of Paula for laser hair removal. I did my initial laser test and from that it didn’t seem too bad but again that could be down to how at ease Paula made me feel. I will keep you all posted on my progress – maybe no after photos though in these blogs!
Here’s my before photo 😛
