Hair Removal Treatments Marlow

Great, relaxing skin treatments are what the team at Sunrise Beauty in Marlow excel at, so if you are looking for the best way to remove unwanted hair, the team here can help.

Here is a quick guide to your hair removal options in Marlow:

Strip Wax – In a strip wax, liquid wax will be applied to the skin in a thin layer using a disposable spatula. This is then quickly peeled off, removing the hair underneath. It’s a simple, effective method for hair removal. You can get a strip wax for most places on the body, including:

  • Legs (either the bottom half, or full leg)
  • Arms
  • Underarms
  • Brazilian/Hollywood (bikini area)
  • Lip and chin
  • Eyebrows
  • Chest/back, or Hollywood (for men)

Hot Wax/Lycon Waxing – Similar to strip wax, a hot wax uses a thicker, almost treacle-like wax that is applied with a spoon and worked in the direction of hair growth. It is left to harden, then removed. It may be more suitable for you if your skin is sensitive and is suitable for the following areas:

  • Lip/Chin
  • Underarms
  • Brazilian/Hollywood (bikini area)
  • Nostrils

Laser Hair Removal IPL (Intense Pulsed Light ) – This is a clinically proven way to reduce unwanted hair safely using light therapy. Over the course of several treatments, you can expect to see up to 80% hair removal in the chosen area. Light is absorbed by the hair’s pigment, turning to heat, which kills the cells that grow the hair. You will need to have treatments every 4-6 weeks to see the full results, and you will need an initial consultation and patch test before treatment can begin.

Laser Hair Removal is suitable for the following areas:

  • Facial hair
  • Lip/chin
  • Jawline
  • Underarms
  • Bikini area
  • Legs
  • Chest
  • Neck and shoulders
  • Arms
  • Back


Electrolysis involves using an epilator, which uses shortwave radio frequencies in hair follicles to prevent new hair from growing. This will lead to permanent hair removal, but it requires several treatment sessions – it may be a more significant time commitment, but it can have fantastic long-term results.

You will have to book an initial consultation and have a patch test before the treatment can begin.

Electrolysis is suitable for most body areas, although some areas respond more quickly to treatment than others. Even if you have lighter body hair, electrolysis will still work for you.

Which One Should I Choose?

Any of the treatments above make an excellent alternative to shaving at home and will give you longer-lasting results. Strip waxing, for example, will last anywhere from 3-6 weeks, making it an ideal choice before you go on holiday. Electrolysis can last forever, but it’s a much longer time (and money) investment.

Your skin type may play a part, too. Very sensitive skin may require extra caution, with patch tests being particularly important, and those with lighter body hair will not be able to use IPL treatment.
