How Does WaxingWork?

Wax is a temporary solution to unwanted body hair.With some hot wax, an applicator, and a fabric strip, you can remove hair fromanywhere on your body in seconds. With the proper technique, waxing pulls thehair from the follicle. The result is smooth skin without visible hair on thesurface. The follicle, however, remains intact in the dermis layer of the skin. Waxing typically leavesthe skin smooth for several weeks, at which point you’ll need to wax the samearea again to remove any new hair growth.

Pros and Consof Waxing

Pros of Waxing

Waxing is effective for all hair types, skin types,and skin tones. Regardless of the color or texture of your skin or hair. Waxingcan also be done at home and is less expensive than laser hair removal.

Cons of Waxing

Waxing can be painful in sensitive areas of the body,such as underarms, bikini line, and parts of the face. Since waxing doesn’t getrid of the root of the hair it can grow back ingrown. Wax can be damaging tothe skin. If you have sensitive skin it’s strongly recommended that you don’tapply wax to any part of your face.

Laser HairRemoval

Laser hair removal is an option for patients lookingto permanently reduce body hair. A combination of light and radiofrequencydestroys the hair follicles to help prevent regrowth. Most clients will seetheir desired results after 6 to 8 treatments.
