Waxing, hair removal, dates back to ancient India, 4000 BC to 3000 BC. Methods used today are similar. Waxing offers semi-permanent hair removal, removing hair at the root cause; new hair growth comes in softer, and if done regularly, permanent hair reduction can occur. With shaving or the use of depilatory creams, hair is removed from the surface rather than the root and will grow back in a rougher stubble. Waxing is effective for removing larger areas of hair as well as cleaning up smaller areas.
The most popular waxing services done are eyebrow waxing/styling and bikini waxing, which includes a standard bikini, where the panty line is cleaned up, a French bikini, which removes more hair, and Brazilian bikini waxing, which removes hair from the whole area. Both men and women get waxed in those intimate areas. Eyebrow waxing/styling can be a face lift. Your esthetician's aim is to give the best eyebrow wax to enhance one's features. We want you to glow from head to toe!
Both a hard wax and softer, cream-based waxes are used. Each type of wax lends itself for different areas of the body. Cleanliness and privacy are highly valued.
Whether male or female waxing, comfort and safety are a priority. If using products such as Retin-A, Renova, Differin, or Isotretinoin, it is imperative to disclose this to your esthetician. These medications can weaken the skin, so tears may occur. There are many topical solutions that can also effect the skin, therefore it is important to disclose before receiving any waxing treatments, to ensure the safest hair removal whether receiving a bikini waxing, underarm waxing, back waxing, brazilian waxing, face waxing, lip waxing, eyebrow waxing/styling, or leg waxing. Again, your comfort and safety are a priority.
Pain tolerance is a concern when getting waxed. The time of the month for females seems to affect pain tolerance, with increased sensitivity the week prior to menstruation. Waxing is not recommended on skin that is broken, irritated, sunburned. After waxing, to avoid ingrown hair, regular exfoliation is suggested.
