UrbanWax™ was established in 2001 and was Europe’s first specialised waxing and hair removal boutique. Never before had anyone offered a dedicated waxing only service of such superiority of privacy, hygiene, comfort and results. Our extensive research and many years of experience have allowed us to master and perfect our very own waxing technique practiced by our long established Waxologist Team.

Place your trust in our experienced hands and let your UrbanWax experience speak for itself, we are hopeful you will be amazed.

We are dedicated to offering all our customers the most innovative face and body waxing service in a stylish and relaxed environment. We use only the highest quality wax and we are committed to offering these services and products with the utmost professionalism, courtesy, discretion and integrity. Our goal is to have everyone who visits our waxing salon feel welcome and comfortable, in a clean and relaxing environment.

Before Urban Wax arrived on the waxing scene, hair removal in Dublin was almost treated as a mere after thought with poor results. Never before had a company dedicated itself to just waxing for men and women. We created the first professional waxing hair removal business with a newly designed salon that elevates the customer experience with the cleanest, sweetest and fastest waxing experience ever.

Urban Wax offer everything one would want in a waxing service, including a consistently calm, clean and professional environment with well-trained face and body waxing specialists. We also provide a specialist Threading service and we stock a range of fabulous products, from femine hygiene, to skin creams, fun colours to bikini crystals, all available to buy in store.

Laser Treatments

UrbanWax is proud to offer the High Speed Lightsheer Duet, the latest technology in permanent hair removal treatment, with exciting speed and amazing comfort.

We invite YOU to have a FREE consultation, so we can tell you more about your treatment. We will do a patch test to make sure your skin is suitable, explain the results you can expect and answer any questions you may have.

Lightsheer Diode Laser Systems are clinically proven since the 90's and highly regarded for providing safety, superior results and patient satisfaction. It reduces treatment times up to 75% and significantly improves comfort. The NEW High Speed Lightsheer with it's dramatically increased spot size of 22mm x 35mm combined with innovative vaccum-assist technology offers you an exciting treatment option for hair removal.This is GREAT NEWS for Women and Men, since Legs and Backs can now be treated comfortably in about 15-20 minutes, with NO need for topical anesthetics or messy treatment gel. Lightsheer Diode Lasers are widely recognized as the 'GOLD STANDARD' for hair removal and permanent hair reduction across the broadest patient population.

For Permanent Hair Reduction with Customized Comfort:

When body hair is excessive, darker or coarser than you would prefer, or appears in places that make you feel uncomfortable, it's time to reconsider your hair removal options. Tweezing, shaving, waxing, electrolysis and chemical depilatories only temporary remove the hair. Laser Hair removal is considered a FAR MORE EFFECTIVE solultion for unwanted hair with LONG LASTING RESULTS. For permanent results, LASER is the solution when the hair is in its active growth phase called Anagen.

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser Hair Removal is the process of removing unwanted hair by means of exposure to pulses of laser light that destroy the hair follicle.

What is the difference between Laser and IPL?

IPL stands for ‘intense pulsed light’. IPL machines are not Lasers. IPL devices are generally cheaper than Laser devices, which is why many clinics choose to use them. These machines produce a wide frequency of traditional light that can heat up all of the surrounding tissue. IPL lacks Laser's ability to produce a selective frequency of light that will only affect the hair shaft making it less effective in disabling hair and putting the skin at a higher risk for side effects. Laser targets the hair shaft, disabling it and minimises side effects.

IPL generally requires more treatments or may only reduce the thickness and darkness of the hair, rather than eliminate it completely. Generally, true hair removal lasers (i.e. Lightsheer Diode Laser) tend to achieve superior results for unwanted hair treatment.

Treatment Cannot be carried out under the following circumstances:

  • If you have been exposed to the sun with 4 weeks of your proposed treatment.
  • If you have false tan/ tanning lotions on the area proposed for Laser
  • If you are pregnant
  • If your hair has been bleached within the last 4 weeks
  • If you have white or grey hair
  • If you suffer from certain medical conditions or taking certain medications (this can be discussed during your consultation).

You can choose to pay per Session or Book a Course. Prices Vary and Payment options are available during your Complimentary Consultation.

Brazilian Virgins

First time?

Do you blush or feel nervous at the thoughts of it? This is all perfectly normal and everyone feels this way before their first Brazilian or Hollywood wax.

Ask anyone who has been to us and you will be quickly reassured, as the most common response we hear from UrbanWax clients is ‘I don’t know why I was so worried.’

You can also try our anaesthetic No-Scream Cream, applied by yourself 40-50 minutes before your treatment.

Beware, ladies: you can get addicted!

The outcome is so fabulous. Our advice to you is to go for it. Try it once. You will not regret it.

Enjoy!

Brazilian Benefits

  1. Feeling Free – The Brazilian bikini wax grants the woman a new feeling, freedom. In most cases, better self-confidence.
  2. More Hygienic – The medical profession now agrees with this, due to our modern grooming lifestyles.
  3. After getting a Brazilian bikini wax, you will be able to lie down on the beach with any kind of bathing suit you feel like wearing. Your smooth bikini area will look great in any bathing suit.
  4. Unlike other hair-removal methods of bikini hair, the Brazilian bikini wax must be done by qualified and experienced professionals in a reputable salon.
  5. Your bikini area will stay smooth and silky between seven days and six weeks, with no maintenance at all. However, please note: everyone’s growth varies and there are different stages of hair growth. This will always determine how long you get out of your wax. If you are unsure and would like further details, please ask your therapist for advice.

Our Advice

Waxing can be done at any time, however, please consider some of the following:

  • Avoid caffeine prior to your visit, as it stimulates your nervous system.
  • Don’t shave or use depilatory creams in between waxes, as this will distort hair growth.
  • Don’t pick ingrown hairs, as this can result in infection and scarring. Instead, ask your therapist for advice about suitable home-care.
  • If you are hypersensitive, we recommend that you do not schedule your visit when you are premenstrual.
  • We require at least three to four weeks’ growth for a clean wax. (This may vary with each client.)
  • Please inform us if you are pregnant or if there are any changes to your medical health.
  • Don’t use body lotions, self-tanners or perfumes just before your treatment.
  • We recommend a patch test at least 24 hours before your treatment.

Your Skin is precious to us, so please refrain from waxing if:

  • You are currently using glycolic acid, Retin-A or taking Roaccutanne at the time of your visit or have been in the last six months.
  • You are hypersensitive to heat.
  • You have been exposed to the sun or sunbeds 24 hours prior to your visit.
  • Your immune system is low or you are suffering from an iron deficiency.

AFTERCARE

Please avoid the following for 24-72 hours after your visit:

  • Hot baths/showers
  • Direct contact or friction to the area (Yes, ladies, this includes bedroom action!)
  • Exercise/swimming/excessive perspiration
  • Exposure to heat treatments (48 hours)
  • Body lotions, self-tanners and perfumesTight clothing (e.g. underwear, tights and jeans)

Ingrown Hairs

Ingrown hairs are a condition whereby the hair curls back or grows sideways into the skin. Common symptoms include red spots, itchy skin, whiteheads (pustules) and localised inflammation, which can sometimes be painful. They are caused by all the various forms of hair removal. The most common cause results from not carrying out the correct aftercare procedures, post-hair removal.

Examples of correct aftercare are wearing loose clothing and avoiding exposure to heat. Ingrown hairs can be found anywhere on the body where hair grows, but are mainly found around the bikini area on women and the back on men.

Treatments include Tea Tree Lotion and Caron Bump eRaiser, for both prevention and cure. Please consult with your therapist for the most suitable home-care advice.

Waxing During Pregnancy

It is perfectly safe to wax during pregnancy. We recommend you wax very regularly, especially if you’re having a Brazilian or Hollywood. Please consult with your doctor prior to your first visit and inform your therapist, should any medical changes occur throughout.


Our Waxes

At UrbanWax we only use the finest of waxes, pre- and post-wax products and adopt the highest hygiene practices. We have selected Caron Laboratories as our main provider of wax and hygiene products.

Caron Laboratories have been Australia’s leading waxing manufacturers for the last 28 years. Caron’s premier range of smooth-and-remove waxes include hot and warm waxes. All waxes contain titanium dioxide, which reduces redness and discomfort. A combination of hot and warm wax is used to ensure the best possible finish. Caron’s range includes the amazing Venetian-spun lace hair-removal cloths, which stick only to the wax, not the skin, resulting in a more relaxing treatment.

Caron have a range of elite waxes, so whatever your hair or skin type, we will have a wax to suit you.

A long side the variety of Caron Waxes that we use is the Micro defence product:

Micro-Defence: For our salon hygiene range, we use this gel to cleanse your skin prior to all treatments, for protection against germs and infections. It has a kill-rate of 99% on contact with a wide range of bacteria, fungi and viruses, including herpes types 1 and 2, as well as hepatitis A and B. We also use its sister Micro-Defence spray on all our salon equipment, to ensure maximum salon hygiene practices. The active ingredient in this range is organic and hospital-grade certified.
