What is waxing? Waxing is the removal of unwanted facial and/or body hair from the root. This is done by placing warm wax, the consistency of honey, over the hair to be removed. A cotton strip is then placed over that and with one quick, smooth motion, the strip, wax and hair are removed.
Does it hurt? At first, waxing can be uncomfortable because it is a new sensation. After a while, discomfort subsides since less hair is removed after each time.
How long do results last? Typically results will last several weeks. It is suggested that you wax every 4–8 weeks to maintain your results.
How long does my hair need to be? Hair should be between ¼” to ½” for optimal results.
Is waxing okay for everybody? Waxing is not recommended for people with diabetes, using certain medications such as Retinoids, or who have other skin conditions. Please discuss any concerns with your esthetician.
What about ingrown hairs? As a new hair grows in, it can become trapped under the surface of the skin. With regular exfoliation, you can lessen or eliminate this from happening.
