Waxing is a temporary method of hair removal which can be effective for around 4 to 6 weeks, using either hot wax or strip/warm wax leaving skin soft, smooth to the touch and hair free.
Okay, so here's the most important question -
Does waxing hurt?
My honest answer, as a recent waxing fan is -
For first timers it can be a wee bit painful but using hot wax that doesn't adhere to skin (on smaller areas), can be more comfortable than using strip/warm wax. Many clients say it's not as bad as they imagined. Heres a run down of waxing options available, both are suitable for sensitive skin.
HOT WAX -
consists of beeswax and resin and is melted to a thicker consistency than strip/warm wax. Applied to skin with a wooden spatula, it coats hair with a thick layer and hardens around hair, gripping it tightly. Once dry, the wax is flipped up at the corner and pulled off quickly by the therapist. Many people find hot wax less painful than strip/warm wax as heat allows pores to open so hair is removed more easily. A less sticky option and more able to remove shorter and more stubborn hairs than strip/warm wax. Much more comfortable for under arm and bikini line waxing where hair growth may be coarse in texture. Also great for facial waxing.
STRIP/WARM WAX -
is the most popular method of waxing. It consists of resin, paraffin wax, glucose syrup and honey. Warm wax is smoothed onto skin in a thin layer and immediately covered with a fabric or paper strip which is pressed/rubbed onto waxed area before being removed in a quick swipe by the therapist. Strip/warm waxing is quicker than hot wax and larger areas can be waxed at one time. Perfect for covering large areas such as legs, arms etc.
Benefits of Salon/Professional Waxing -
- Helps keep skin looking naturally smooth
- Eliminates stubble growth
- Waxing lasts 4-6 weeks compared to shaving which can last just a day or two
- Slows down hair growth and hairs become finer and weaker over time
Go on, give it a go!
