What is Waxing?
Waxing is a form of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for four to six weeks, although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week due to some of their hair being on a different growth cycle. There are many types of waxing suitable for removing unwanted hair. Strip waxing (soft wax) is accomplished by spreading a wax thinly over the skin. A cloth or paper strip is applied and pressed firmly, adhering the strip to the wax and the wax to the skin. The strip is then quickly ripped against the direction of hair growth, as parallel as possible to the skin to avoid trauma to the skin (i.e., bruising, broken capillaries, ingrown hairs caused by hair follicle trauma and lifting of skin).This removes the wax along with the hair.
Strip-less wax (as opposed to strip wax), also referred to as hard wax, is applied somewhat thickly and with no cloth or paper strips. The wax then hardens when it cools and then the wax is removed. This waxing method is very beneficial to people who have sensitive skin. Strip-less wax does not adhere to the skin as much as strip wax does, thus making it a good option for sensitive skin as finer hairs are more easily removed because the hard wax encapsulates the hair as it hardens. The strip-less waxing method can also be less painful.
Will it Hurt?
I am pretty sure by now you have seen a movie or television show where a person is getting waxed and they seem to be in the biggest pain of their life! One of the most memorable was Steve Carell in 40 Year Old Virgin, where he is left with a smiley face on his chest. Yes, that is very funny but it does scare people off from trying the wax. I have this fantastic cream called No Scream Cream. You apply it to the area 40-50 minutes before your service and it will reduce the pain by up to 80%. Imagine walking in to get waxed knowing that it will not hurt! 90% of the time, you will forget the pain of the wax by time you are through. The results you will be see after your wax will make you want to stay waxed! No Scream Cream retails for $20 and can be used all over the body.
Is Waxing permanent?
When you wax hair, you have the possibility of pulling the root of the hair, and that is a good thing. That means your body needs to decide whether it will go through the process of growing the root base, root and hair or if it will just lie dormant forever. We hope for the latter, luckily there is a product on the market call Hair Did it Go?, a hair retarding system that is applied immediately after your wax and up to 72 hours later. This is a great add-on, it rivals laser hair removal, in 5-15 treatments, you could be virtually hair free! Hair Did it Go retails for $15 per vial.
