Waxing

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 hair growth cycle. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, pubic area (called bikini waxing), legs, arms, back , abdomen, knuckles and feet. There are many types of waxing suitable for removing unwanted hair.

There are many benefits to waxing versus other forms of hair removal. It is an effective method to remove large amounts of hair at one time. It is a long-lasting method. Hair in waxed areas will not grow back for two to eight weeks. When hair is shaved or removed by Chemical depilatory|depilatory cream, the hair is removed at the surface rather than the hair root. Within a few days, the hair can be seen at the surface. With these methods, hair tends to grow back in a rough stubble. Areas that are repeatedly waxed over long periods of time often exhibit regrowth that is softer.

Please do not apply tanning products until at least 12 hours, preferably 24, after having a waxing as the pores are open and you may end up looking spotty. It is also advisable not to use perfumes etc or any creams that may have a colouring agent in them.

It is also advisable not to bathe or shower for the same amount of time due to the pores being open also.
