Good news for all those, who fear a waxing job as much as a dentist visit. Would you believe me if I told you that there is a waxing treatment that is free of pain? There is!
Friday, first day of the weekend in Dubai – Sister’s Beauty Lounge time. I had booked an appointment for waxing and threading and sat at the spa’s coffee bar when I saw that flyer: Victoria Beckham would never do any other waxing treatment than Lycon. Why? Because it was absolutely pain-free, she allegedly said. I usually trust Posh. This woman knows what she’s doing, you have to give her that. But what difference can another hot wax make? For an additional AED 30 (approx. EUR 6) I wanted to give it a try.
Lying naked in front of a stranger exposing your lady bits (every little bit) is embarrassing enough – and then the painful treatment on top. I feel like an idiot every time I go for a “full Brazilian” (which involves the complete pubic hair removal if you didn’t know), and I keep on telling myself: “She (the therapist) doesn’t care, she’s doing that 24/7, it’s only natural.” However, to make a long story short: The Lycon hot wax hair removal is amazing. Don’t ask me how and why – but it is pain-free. It’s still not as pleasant as for example a massage, but it’s much less painful than tearing off a plaster. I was rather relaxed during the treatment, my skin was very soft afterwards and there was no redness or irritations! I believe they do have home care products, too. Check their website.
So, now there’s a painless waxing treatment, there must be a painless dentist treatment, too, no?
