GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT WAXING
Waxing is a method of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root cause. New hairs will not grow back in the previously waxed area for two to eight weeks. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, bikini area, legs, arms, back, abdomen and feet. There are many types of waxing suitable for removing unwanted hair. If waxing is done regularly for several years, permanent hair reduction may be achieved.
Waxing is accomplished by spreading a wax combination thinly over the skin. A cloth or paper strip is then pressed on the top and ripped off with a quick movement against the direction of hair growth. This removes the wax along with the hair.
Another method utilizes hard wax (as opposed to strip wax). In this case, the wax is applied somewhat 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 in our professional opinion is much more painful and we in our salon do not do this type of waxing.
Types of Waxing
Various types of waxing are available. Some must be performed by a licensed cosmetologist or aesthetician. The different types of waxing that can be performed are: eyebrow waxing, bikini, male genital (we do not do this type at our salon), Hollywood/Brazilian waxing (we only do for women), leg waxing, arm/underarm waxing, back waxing, foot waxing, chest waxing, entire body wax.
There are many benefits to waxing versus other forms of hair removal. It is an effective method to remove large amounts of hair at one time. It is a long-lasting method. Hair in waxed areas will not grow back for two to eight weeks. When hair is shaved or removed by depilatory cream, the hair is removed at the surface rather than the root. Within a few days, the hair can be seen at the surface. With these methods, hair tends to grow back in a rough stubble. Areas that are repeatedly waxed over long periods of time often exhibit re-growth that is softer.
