Hair Removalgoodbye to irritation and hello to smoth, silky skin

Say goodbye to irritated shaving rashes and hello to smooth, silky skin!

In our salon we offer three different methods of hair removal to cater for all skin and hair types. These range from traditional methods of waxing through to a more permanent form of hair removal by IPL.

Not every method is suitable for every person and therefore we are happy to provide a free consultation and tester shots were required to ensure you get the right treatment for you and discuss all your possible options.

Professional Hair Removal helps to:

  • Encourage even hair growth, not patchy
  • Encourage finer hair and less of it over time
  • Eliminates in-grown hairs
  • Avoid painful shaving rash and burning

Aftercare Advice:

  • No heat treatments for 24 hours – including sunbeds and saunas
  • No cosmetic lotions or sprays for 24 hours
  • No make-up (if applicable) for 12 hours
  • Avoid touching the area
  • Avoid tight clothing
  • Exfoliate every few days to help reduce nay ingrown hairs
  • Moisturise daily
  • If any redness or sensitivity occurs apply only a cool compress to soothe but nothing else


Waxing leaves the skin hair free and naturally smooth.

You should ensure that the hair to be waxed is a minimum of 0.75cm – 1cm so that the wax adheres to the hair effectively. This is normally around 2 weeks post shaving growth for most ladies or 4-6 weeks post waxing.

Waxing helps to:

  • Keeps the skin looking naturally smooth
  • Eliminate stubble growth
  • Waxing last for 4-6 weeks
  • Hairs become sparse over time
  • Hairs become finer and weaker over time
  • Slows down hair growth

What happens during the treatment:

The therapist will apply a high quality warm wax and remove the unwanted hair. Afterwards a soothing tea tree lotion is applied to the skin.

After care advice:

  • No heat treatments for 24 hours – including sun beds or saunas
  • No swimming for 24 hours
  • No sports or sweat inducing activities for 24 hours
  • No cosmetic lotions or sprays for 12 hours
  • No make up for 12 hours
  • Avoid touching the area
  • Avoid tight clothing
  • Exfoliate every couple of days to reduce any ingrown hairs
  • Any redness or sensitivity should expect to remain fir anything up to 24 hour, use a cool compress to soothe but nothing else.


The ultimate answer for everyone who longs for smooth hair free skin, the procedure is pain free with no risk of scarring. It is also effective on very fair hair, like with most hair removal treatments a course will be required to gain the maximum results.

RVB CD101 helps to:

  • Remove hair on clients who are fairer/Grey and not suitable for IPL
  • Clients who want a more permanent form of hair removal

During the treatment:

You will have the area waxed, then a soothing lotion will be applied. The lotion acts as a hair inhibitor and conducts the current provided by the CD101 machine. The chosen area will feel warm as the head of the machine is moved across in specific timed movements, targeting hair follicles and eliminating hair growth.

Intense Pulse Light (IPL)

At Pam's Beauty Studio we own our own IPL machine and therefore our prces are the most competitive in the area.

IPL is a system of semi permanent hair removal that works by passing a focused, broad spectrum light onto the surface of the skin. The light travels until it strikes a hair shaft and into the bulb of the hair. The light is converted into heat energy, the bulb and most of the hair shaft are vapourised. The heat radiated often destroys the entire hair follicle.

This system is not a permanent hair removal but a hair reduction however results speak for themselves. It is neccessary to have a course of treatments and the length of these can be discussed depending on the area being treated.

We are happy to provide a test shot prior to you undertaking a course of treatment for you to see the kind of results you can expect.
