We would always recommend arriving 10 minutes before your treatment time.
Any massage or facial treatments are not advised during the first three months of pregnancy. Please be aware that your skin will be more sensitive during waxing. If having a tint treatment, you will require a new patch test as the sensitivity of your skin changes during pregnancy.
Hot wax is applied in a thick layer and left to set. It is gentler because the heat allows the hair follicle to open up before the wax is peeled off. Hot wax removes more stubborn hair and provides a superior finish.
Keep the area moisturised, this will enable the hair to break through the skin easily. Exfoliate one to two weeks after being waxed when you feel the hair growing back. Do not exfoliate everyday, just once or twice a week at most. Regularly wash your exfoliating gloves/mit in your washing machine.
We say half centimetre or longer is perfect. If you have a feeling that your hair is too long, don’t worry we will trim it for you.
Let the hair grow to a minimum of half a centimetre long. The longer you can leave it the better. It can take more than one wax to get a smooth result, this is because some previously shaved hair will be in a resting phase and be too short to wax. It will look smooth, but may feel a little stubbly until all the hair has grown out and been waxed.
We do supply disposable pants or you can wear your own underwear, although there may be a risk of wax or creams getting on the fabric.
It is all done while you are lying down.
Yes, but please only wear a tampon, we also ask you to use the wipes provided. Please bear in mind that waxing can be slightly more painful when you are premenstrual or menstruating.
Everyone is different. You should get two good hair free weeks, then your hair will start to grow back. This is then the best time to gently exfoliate to help the hair break through the skin. Most people return to the salons every four or five weeks.
Yes! PURE Spa & Beauty salons are open late. Check out our salons for individual opening times.
Operating at 40 deg C, an infra-red sauna uses light to create heat which is absorbed by the surface of the skin.
An infra-red sauna uses light to create heat whereas a traditional sauna uses heat to warm the air which in turn, warms your body.
No, we will provide towels and a robe.
You can choose to be alone or with someone you know in the sauna. We do not allow more than 3 people in the sauna at any one time due to its size and recommend only 2 people at any one time for comfort. We would never put you in a sauna with a stranger.
We recommend using the sauna once a week. It is the perfect pre-treatment to a massage.
Up to once a week

If this is your first spray tan at PURE Spa & Beauty then yes, you do require a patch test at least 24 hours before your treatment. Just pop into the salon and we will apply a small amount of the tan behind an ear or to the crease of your arm. You will need to leave it on for 24 hours. Providing you have no reactions we will carry out a spray tan.
Do not apply deodorants or perfumes as these can prevent the absorption of the tanning solution. Do not use moisturisers on the day of your tan as they can act as a barrier to the solution.
Ideally, leave it for between 8-12 hours, the tan will keep developing for up to 24 hours. If you get your spray tan done at the end of the day and then go to bed wearing it. You can then wash it off in the morning. We recommend to have a shower, not a bath.
