Although there is a widespread belief that waxing is excruciatingly painful, agonising, and otherwise intolerable, the reality is that millions of people are waxed every single day. Waxing is suitable for every skin and hair type, as well as every body area and level of pain tolerance.
However, it is very natural to be anxious about getting your first wax, so here is some information to help ease your mind:
Waxing is the most efficient method for eliminating unwanted hair since it eliminates the base of the hair shaft, leaving the skin smoother for a longer period of time after the procedure. The process is always the same; the wax is applied to your skin and hair, and it is then removed as quickly as possible. The amount of time it takes to wax an area varies on which area you want waxed.
Your therapist understands precisely how and where to apply the wax, how to remove it, and how to alter her waxing method to fit your body shape, hair type, or any concerns you may have, (we have heard them all), in order to produce the greatest results for you – smooth, soft, and hair free!!
The amount of time it takes for new hair to grow in after using this semi-permanent form of hair removal helps explain why it is so popular. Everyone is unique, and their hair grows in a distinct pattern according on the technique that they choose to remove their hair. Waxing typically lasts between four and six weeks, although shaving and hair removal treatments may remove hair in as little as one day.
There are no cuts, there is no shaving irritation, there are fewer ingrown hairs, there is less hair growth over time, there is no spiky stubble, and there is simply beautiful skin.
The length of hair that should be removed should be at least around one centimetre long at the very least. Once you have determined your hair growth cycle (how long it takes for hairs to grow back after waxing; make a note of this in your diary), you will be able to schedule regular appointments and develop a routine in order to ensure that your hairs will grow back together, which will make your life much simpler.
The many advantages of waxing make it appropriate for both men and women to partake in the practise. Waxing may be performed on many parts of the body, including the legs, arms, eyebrows, lip, chin, underarms, bikini regions, chest, back, and other locations. You have no need to be ashamed about this matter since we all have bodies and have seen similar things a thousand times before. Waxing services, including intimate waxing, shall at all times be delivered in a manner that is both professional and discreet.
Waxing may be a little unpleasant simply due to the fact that the hair is being plucked from the root, but the process is rapid and only lasts a little while. There are certain aspects of one’s body that are more delicate than others, but this varies from person to person. There are a number of other things, such as being pregnant, having your period, your level of stress, etc., that might make you more sensitive.
I strongly suggest that you exfoliate your whole body the night before your waxing appointment in order to prepare for it. This helps to eliminate topical ingrown hairs and loosens dead skin cells, which allows the wax to better grasp onto the hair and remove it. When going to the spa for a waxing treatment, it is best to wear clothing that are loose fitting since the treated region may be somewhat sensitive after the treatment, and garments that are too tight may irritate the treated area even more.
Inform your therapist if you are currently taking any medications, particularly those that reduce the risk of bleeding, such as blood thinners, Retin-A, or Accutane. In addition, medical diseases, including diabetes, chemotherapy, or any other illness that may have an influence on the skin.
After getting your wax done, you should steer clear of any treatments that expose the waxed regions to potential irritation, such as saunas, sunbeds, sunbathing, sun bathing, swimming pools, and hot showers, among other things. Do not touch the waxed region since this may increase the likelihood of bacterial infections in the hair follicle, ingrown hairs, redness, and irritation. Touching the waxed area can also increase the likelihood of ingrown hairs. Do not apply any products, including lotions, gels, or deodorants, to the affected regions. It is totally natural for your skin to be irritated immediately after treatment; all you need to do to calm the skin down is apply a clean cold compress.
The myth that waxing is a terrifying and excruciating process belies the reality that it is really rather easy. Believe me when I say that once you try waxing, there’s no turning back! The results speak for themselves.
