While most women love that freshly waxed look and feel, many don’t have the courage or don’t know about the service. Waxing is a great alternative to shaving if you have hair you’re uncomfortable with, and it is recommended for people of all ages.
Waxingis much better because it removes hair from the root, it can last up to a month, although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week due to some of their hair being on a different growth cycle. Over time it thins the hair so less grows back. The treatment also exfoliates the skin leaving you feeling silky smooth.
It is a form of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, bikini waxing, legs, arms, back, abdomen and feet. There are two types of waxing suitable for removing unwanted hair:
Strip waxing (soft wax) is accomplished by spreading a wax thinly over the skin. A cloth or paper strip is applied and pressed firmly, adhering the strip to the wax and the wax to the skin. The strip is then quickly ripped against the direction of hair growth, as parallel as possible to the skin to avoid trauma to the skin (i.e, bruising, broken capillaries, ingrown hairs caused by hair follicle trauma and lifting of skin). This removes the wax along with the hair.
Hard wax, is applied thickly and with no cloth or paper strips. The wax then hardens when it cools, thus allowing the easy removal by a therapist without the aid of cloths. This waxing method is very beneficial to people who have sensitive skin. Strip-less wax does not adhere to the skin as much as strip wax does, thus making it a good option for sensitive skin as finer hairs are more easily removed because the hard wax encapsulates the hair as it hardens.
I recommend an exfoliating scrub the day before and advise not to apply body lotion on the day of the treatment as it is easier to remove the hair. It is excellent for summer when we will be able to wear shorts and dresses to show our amazing hairless legs and arms.
In my opinion anyone who hasn’t given it a try should do it because the feeling that the service gives us afterwards is amazing, we feel more confident and good about ourselves.
