Difference between Lycon and other hot wax systems?
Although the Lycon hot wax is a hot wax system, the temperature it heats up to is in fact lower then the temperature of warm wax. This makes Lycon great for sensitive skin types, reducing irritation and redness. Lycon is different to most hot wax system because a micro-oil is applied to the skin first which stops the wax from adhering to the skin. The wax only adheres to hairs hence reducing the pain felt by most waxes by 50%. This makes it an ideal wax system for sensitive areas such as under arms, hollywood and brazilian bikini.
What's so special about Lycon?
Lycon wax is a tough wax which does not break hairs and ingrowing hairs are minimised.
Where does it come from?
Lycon was established in Australia in 1978 by Lydia Jordan. Using only the finest resins, natural ingredients and aromatherapy oils, Lycon delivers superior performance, leaving skin smooth and soft to the touch. The wax is made from australian Pine tree and hence is a natural product. Lycon have patented the product to their company so no other brand delivers the same result. The wax grip is one of the toughest on the market yet gentle on the skin.
Difference between hot wax and warm wax?
Warm wax uses wax strip whereas a hot wax system does not require any strips. The hot wax is spread thickly onto the skin after the skin has been cleansed, it is allowed to dry then pulled off by the therapist directly. The wax traps all the hairs while it is drying and minimises hair breakage.
