Waxing is a method of semi-permanent hair removal which is done by coating the skin with sticky wax. The wax is then allowed to dry, after which a cloth or paper strip is run quickly in the opposite direction of hair growth. This removes the wax along with the hair.
Waxing is a popular hair removal method because it is generally very effective. It also lasts for approximately four to six weeks and is a highly effective method of removing hair from larger areas of the body such as the back, legs, and chest.
How is Waxing Performed?
Waxing is performed using a special electric or hot wax. Your hygienist will prep the area by cleansing and drying the skin. They will then spread a thin layer of wax onto the skin in the direction of the hair growth. Next, they will place a paper strip over the wax. They will then pull the strips quickly, removing the wax along with the hair.
Advantages of Waxing
Waxing removes hair from the root. This keeps hair from growing back for several weeks. Hair grows back finer and with less volume. Waxing also exfoliates the skin, removing dead skin cells from the surface to reveal smooth skin underneath. Unlike shaving or tweezing, waxing involves the removal of large amounts of hair at one time. Besides, the areas that are repeatedly waxed over long periods often exhibit softer and thinner hair regrowth.
The main reason that waxing is so popular is that it lasts so long. After waxing, hair will stay away for 3-4 weeks. However, the removal process can be painful, and hence, we may suggest you take a pain reliever or anti-inflammatory medication before the treatment.
Which Areas of the Body Can Be Treated With Waxing?
Waxing can be performed on almost any part of the body. However, the hair needs to be about a quarter-inch long in order for the wax to adhere to the hair. Additionally, the hair must be dry in order for the wax to adhere to it.
