Paraffin Wax Hand Treatment


Manicures often fall into the category of 'pampering' and are at least as important as ensuring regular treatments for your hair or skin. Our hands go through a lot on a daily basis and so manicures are an important part of positive nail health. As you may already be lucky enough to have treated yourself to manicures, you are well aware that it is very enjoyable to have your nails done. The reasons are endless why this should be more than just the occasional luxury experience that you enjoy so much.

French manicure

French manicure is often referred to as the most classic nail art of all time. While we are constantly in search of new nail designs and colours, this simple nail art is an eternally classic look and has proved to be the perfect choice for almost any occasion – ranging from a casual lunch meeting to a formal dinner, as well as being one of the favourite nail looks for brides.

French manicure is most significantly characterised, in addition to giving your nails a natural look, by colouring the tips white on top of a pink or beige coat. It looks most spectacular on short of half-long nails.



The origins of French manicure are hard to trace. According to the one of most credible sources, it was invented by Doctor Sitté in Paris in the 18th century, and his legacy was continued by his niece. He used rosetree sticks in his treatments, and achieved naturally glowing and healthy nails by applying creams and pastes.

Yet another story dates back to Los Angeles in the 1970s, where the remarkable style of French manicure was invented and introduced to the market by Jeff Pink, the founder of Orly. He admitted to have only made up the brand name to include the word 'French', in order to give it a more appealing flavour. The Hollywood film industry became then one of the most devoted fans of French manicure, as actors' nails necessarily were to be made to harmonize with the range of clothes they had to wear during the various scenes.  

Japanese manicure

Japanese manicure used to be a secret procedure popular amongst Japanese aristocracy. It is a 400-year-old nail care treatment and is known also as manicure p. shine. If your nails are weak and brittle, Japanese manicure is the perfect strengthening treatment for you, apart from being a wonderfully relaxing beauty ritual too.

To describe it in the simplest terms, in Japanese manicure we apply a special paste onto your bare nails, in conjunction with a special powder to seal it in.

The p. shine powder, which contains among other things diatomaceous earth and beeswax, is used to help absorb the nutrients from the paste and give the nails an astonishingly light pink glow.

If you have weak nails or your false nails have just been removed, Japanese manicure is the remedy. The treatments are recommended on a weekly basis, for a period of one month. However, in order to achieve best results after the therapy, the nail care treatments are to be repeated every 2 to 3 weeks for the duration of a longer period of time.

Should you have allergies or be sensitive to ingredients, Japanese manicure is yet again the best choice for you. Only products of natural origin are used. The paste (known as p. shine paste) is a mix of vitamins A and E, bee pollen, keratin and silica from the Sea of Japan.

No metal tools or ingredients are used in the treatment, but exclusively ceramic nail files and traditional deer skin polishing units and oils. Your cuticles are pushed back and not cut, and even the disinfection serum is made from a natural and gentle ingredient such as beeswax. The end result is shiny, healthy and natural looking nails. 

Avoid applying nail varnish on your nails after Japanese nail care, as well as avoid exposure to detergents and chemical ingredients, as they dissolve sealed in beeswax.  

Paraffin Wax Hand Treatment

Pampering warmth

In In our cosmetic treatment, paraffin wax is a natural emollient, helping make skin supple and soft. When applied to the skin, it adds moisture and continues to boost the moisture levels of the skin after the treatment is complete. It can also help open pores and remove dead skin cells. That may help make the skin look fresher and feel smoother

You may request our paraffin wax hand treatment as part of your manicure or you may even have it as a separate treatment. During Paraffin treatments for hands, your hands will be dipped several times quickly into a bowl of heated paraffin wax. To make it more relaxing for you, the paraffin is often scented with soothing oils and other ingredients.

After several layers are added, the wax will be covered in a plastic bag, wrapped in hot towels and you can relax as the benefits kick in. The wax will trap the heat against your skin as it hardens, opening the pores. Once the wax is completely cooled it will be pulled away, taking dead skin cells along with it.

Paraffin wax is entirely natural, which makes it a great option if you want to treat skin ailments or physical injuries without more invasive procedures


You should avoid using paraffin wax if you have poor blood circulation, if you have numbness in your hands, if you have diabetes or any rashes or open sores on your hands.
