Lycon Hot Wax
Lycon’s ground breaking stripless hot waxes shrink-wrap and remove hair as short as 1mm! It’s perfect for short, stubborn hair on any part of the face and body. Lycon Hot Waxes encompass the finest selection of natural and soothing ingredients that nurture the skin, leaving it feeling soft, smooth and completely hair-free. Used at an extra low temperature, Lycon Hot Waxes can be re-applied 5 – 6 times on just waxed skin, without affecting their superior grip and pliability and without discomfort or irritation. Excellent on the most sensitive skins anywhere, Lycon Hot Waxes are the professional’s companion for perfect Brazilian waxing!
Body areas to use Lycon Hot Wax:
- Bikini lines and underarms; it is extra gentle and soothing for those sensitive areas and leaves a cleaner and neater finish than Strip Wax.
- Eyebrows, lips and facial area; it is great for these areas.
Lycon Strip Wax
Lycon Strip Wax is fast to apply, has an extra strong grip and no sticky residue. Using a metal spatula allows for ultra-thin application which results in minimum skin drag. It is made from a special blend of natural and organic raw materials to grip and remove hair as short as 2mm! All Lycon Strip Waxes are based on the same formula; however, they have their own individual colours and aromatherapy ingredients. All Lycon Strip Waxes can be reapplied on the same area two to three times should some hair be missed.
Body areas to use Lycon Strip Wax:
- Bikini lines and underarms; many salons use Lycon Strip Wax for these areas, however we much prefer and highly recommend the results and the painless waxing that Lycon Hot Waxes offer on these sensitive areas. Furthermore it is much easier to wax these areas with a hot wax as they leave a much cleaner and neater finish.
- Body; Lycon Strip Waxes are perfect for legs and arms, efficiently removing hair as short as 2mm.
