Hair removal is one of the most popular and in-demand services in every beauty salon, and the PIED-DE-POULE studio is no exception. Qualified masters and modern equipment await you at our salons.
Types of Hair Removal Procedures
Hair removal is a procedure known since ancient times. However, in modern days, both classic techniques have become gentler, and new ones have emerged, such as laser and photoepilation.
Furthermore, materials are constantly improving. Various waxes are available on the market for different hair types, different skin sensitivities, and more. There are even special options for pregnant women. The same goes for other techniques like sugaring and laser hair removal.
Of course, you can remove unwanted hair at home, but more often than not, this either turns into a real torture or the results leave much to be desired.
By turning to the PIED-DE-POULE salon, you will be relieved of many inconveniences.
- The master will carefully study your previous experience and listen to your wishes.
- Based on the condition of your hair and the area that needs to be treated, the specialist will suggest the optimal solution to the problem.
At PIED-DE-POULE Studio, clients have access to waxing and laser hair removal, as well as sugaring. Each procedure has its own features and contraindications.

Two types of wax are used for hair removal - hot and warm.
Hot wax (melts in a wax warmer at a temperature of about +55°C, applied hot):
- is used on sensitive areas;
- is applied with a wooden spatula in a medium layer;
- is removed in the opposite direction of hair growth.
Residue wax is removed with special products, and the effect of hair removal lasts from 2 weeks to a month.
Warm wax (melts in special cassettes at a temperature of +45°C):
- is most often used for hair removal on the legs and arms;
- is applied with a roller from the cassette;
- is removed using paper strips.
Warm wax quickly cools down to body temperature and does not have time to have a noticeable effect on the veins, avoiding trauma to closely located vessels.
Sugaring is hair removal with sugar paste. It consists of sugar, water, and lemon juice. The presence of exclusively natural components makes this paste universal and safe to use, even for people with allergies.
Other advantages of sugaring include:
- better hair removal than wax;
- less painful removal - sugaring is done in the direction of hair growth, not against it;
- no thermal impact on the skin.
Nowadays, sugar pastes for different hair types are produced: coarse, fine, for use on the face, etc. Moreover, sugar hair removal can be applied to any area, be it the legs or the bikini area, and the effect lasts from 2 to 6 weeks.

Laser Hair Removal
The use of a special device can remove unwanted hair for up to 5 years. The action of the laser hair removal method is based on the destruction of the hair follicle, which explains the long duration of the effect.
Laser hair removal:
- is suitable for any area of the body and any area;
- is painless, although it may cause some discomfort;
- does not damage the skin.
The only inconvenience may be that to achieve the desired effect, a course of 6-8 sessions will be required. Also, the laser is not very effective on light and gray hair.
Contraindications for Hair Removal
Despite the fact that modern hair removal methods are generally safe, there are still some relative limitations. The master needs to know the client's medical history, as some diseases or conditions are direct contraindications to the procedure.
When you should not do waxing or sugaring:
Do not schedule hair removal if there are wounds, cuts, or inflammation in the area where unwanted hair grows. You should wait until they are completely healed.
Relative contraindications for waxing or sugar hair removal include:
- The first and last trimesters of pregnancy. During these times, women experience increased sensitivity, so the procedure can be more stressful than usual.
- Diabetes (decompensated stage). In this condition, the skin heals much worse and longer, and the risk of infection increases.
- HIV and AIDS. These conditions significantly reduce immunity, so any possibility of infection should be eliminated.
- Cancer. People who are battling this disease are at much higher risk of side effects such as allergies, infections, and dermatitis.
- A history of herpes. This disease may not manifest itself until the wax or paste "activates" it and transfers the infection to clean areas, especially in the case of deep bikini waxing.
- Severe varicose veins. Additional "stimulation" through mechanical or thermal effects on this area is not advisable.
Also, it's worth noting that some wax or paste compositions (rare, but it happens) can cause allergies.
Contraindications for Laser Hair Removal
The list of contraindications for laser hair removal is more extensive. In addition to those mentioned above, it includes:
- The entire period of pregnancy - the result of laser exposure on the fetus is not studied;
- Internal diseases;
- Acute respiratory infections, flu, and other infectious diseases;
- Chronic skin diseases such as psoriasis, dermatitis, and more;
- Presence of tattoos in the area where hair grows;
- Taking drugs that increase photosensitivity;
- Cases of vitiligo in the family.
Laser hair removal is not recommended for clients under 18 years of age. For 2-4 weeks before the procedure and for 2-3 weeks after, it is advisable to refrain from visiting the beach and tanning beds.
Clients should not hide any problems from specialists. After all, based on them, the master will be able to select the optimal method of hair removal that will be most effective and safe for your specific case.
