Waxing


Waxing is a form of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hairs from the follicle. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for four to six weeks, although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week this is because there are new hairs under the surface of the skin and some of the hair will be on a different human hair growth cycle. This can easily be prevented with regular waxing treatments. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, bikini, legs, arms and feet.

A skin test is required 48 hrs before your treatment – this is essential to ensure that you aren’t sensitive to wax.

Many of my clients experience a variety of benefits that have included:

  • Waxing lasts longer than shaving, with no cuts or nicks due from a razor.
  • No irritation to sensitive skin from shaving.
  • Hair comes back finer, silky soft legs and no itchy skin on legs when the hair starts to come back through.

Warm Wax – Strip waxing is accomplished by spreading a wax thinly over the skin. A 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, removing the wax along with the hair.

Hot Wax – Working at a slightly higher temperature than normal “warm wax”, hot wax makes shorter and more stubborn hairs easier to remove and can be a much more comfortable way of removing intimate hair. As it cools it becomes firmer contracting around the hairs, gripping them tightly.

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. The strip-less waxing method can also be less painful.
