Waxing

Waxing is an effective method of removing large amounts of hair at one time. In this method wax is warmed to allow it to be spread easily over the skin in the direction of hair growth. The hair becomes embedded in the wax, which cools and firms up grasping the hair. The wax is then quickly pulled off in the opposite direction of the hair growth, pulling the hairs out of the follicles. Cold waxes are available usually attached to strips, which are patted onto the skin. Wax that is still left on the skin must be peeled or scratched off. Caution must be used when heating wax so as not to burn the skin.

Advantages

  • Large areas of unwanted hair can be removed quickly with immediate results The cost is relatively low and client satisfaction is high Only slight discomfort is experienced from this technique The client is free from unwanted hair the long periods of time and regular treatments reduces re-growth
  • Re-growth is fine and soft unlike the re-growth experienced form shaving and depilatory creams

Disadvantages

  • Treatments have to be repeated at regular intervals to keep the area is free from hair
  • Waxing can occasionally cause re-growth of hair to be in growing. This can sometimes cause discomfort. Should this occur waxing should not be continued until the condition has been rectified. Through the use of the special creams such as AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids), exfoliation and regularly moisturising encourages the hair to emerge from the skin.
  • Reactions to waxing 

    Some individuals may find following a waxing treatment a slight reaction to the skin. This may be a slight reddening, occasional blood spots often in the under arm or bikini line area or in some cases a slight tingling sensation. 

    These reactions are completely normal and will pass in a few hours. All of this will be discussed with you at the time of your appointment with your therapist who will then explain the after-care advice to you following your treatment. If you follow your after-care advice for 24 hours after treatment you should not experience any problems. 

    Each individual reacts very differently to waxing and may find one type more suitable for their skin than others. It is possible that different wax types are required to specific areas of the body depending on the skin's sensitivity.
