Deepa Waharakagama is an Aesthetic expert with over twenty years of experience in the Cosmetology industry, most of which were attained whilst simultaneously training for her diploma from the International Federation of Aestheicians and successfully creating her own blends of waxing products to use and retail (much like the LYCON founder Lydia Jordane) which helped her achieve her masters in beauty and cosmetology from Top to Toe College of Beauty and Cosmetology in Singapore.

Deepa then went on to serve as an aesthetician and an international trainer for Singapore's leading SVENN Laser & Electrolysis Centre before being introduced to join Sothy's Paris's establishment in Colombo where she served as Clinic Manager before being head hunted for the position of Senior Consultant by SKIN, the face and body therapy centre by acclaimed Salon Kess. It is here that Deepa went on to ambitiously found DE-STRIPS through which she offers to Sri Lanka the Australian brand LYCON and its complete range of Precision Waxing™ products together with training personally conducted by Deepa.

As its sole authorized supplier within the country, having secured approval through the Health Ministry of Sri Lanka's stringent quality control policies and now officially the only Health Ministry approved distributor of the hair removal product, Deepa together with De Strips is proud to present to Sri Lanka a range of products for every aspect of the hair removal process that is favoured and sought after by international celebrities and beauties such as Jennifer Lopez, Cameron Diaz and supermodel Kate Moss.


Through De Strips, Deepa presents for the very first time from Austraila, LYCON Precision Waxing™ offering its full range of products that include hot waxes, strip waxes and the unique LYCOJET waxes that allow hairs as short as 1mm to be removed, complemented with LYCON's harmonising before and after waxing lotions. In addition, LYCONspa Specialist Body Care provides corrective solutions for home use in between salon treatments.

LYCON has been setting waxing standards on a global scale for decades and remains the market leader with it's array of quality waxes that come in many exciting colours and scents and allows professionals to tailor the best waxing combination for total customer satisfaction.

LYCON was established in Australia in 1978, by internationally acclaimed beauty therapist Lydia Jordane who much like Deepa created her first wax in her very own kitchen. LYCON's hair removal products enjoy a well deserved reputation as the Crème de la Crème of hair removal waxes around the world and are trusted as the wax of choice in top spas and salons in over 40 countries.
