Waxing Hair Removal

Waxing falls into the category of Epilation, which is the process of removing hair by pulling it out of the follicle, e.g. waxing, threading and tweezing.

While Waxing Hair Removal can also be performed at home, a Spa environment can use professional products and techniques that can result in better outcomes for hair removal as well as reducing the discomfort usually associated with this procedure.

The smooth skin results typically last for several weeks and hair re-growth is lighter than shaving or depilatory creams.

Correct waxing techniques, and the right wax temperature are very important in obtaining positive results. If the wax is too hot it can cause skin irritation and even blistering. 24 hours before waxing exfoliate the area with a soft dry bush or a dry towel to remove any dead skin. Avoid having a hot bath and shower for the remainder of the day of service. Do not apply any perfumed lotion or tanning lotions for at least 24 hours after waxing. Exfoliate the waxed area with a dry soft brush or a dry towel after 48 hours to prevent ingrown hair.

There are different types of waxes used in waxing hair removal, soft and hard wax. Soft wax is normally used with a strip, that means that a thin layer of wax is applied on the skin and covered with a strip of muslin or pellon material, which removes the hair as it is pulled off. This wax is used on larger parts of the body, e.g. legs, arms and backs.

Hard wax is applied in a liquid form which hardens on the skin and the wax is then gently pulled off. This wax is generally used for sensitive areas like face, underarms and bikini.

Facial Waxing should not be performed on people who have the following conditions or are undergoing treatments:

Conditions: Rosacea, Active Acne, History of Fever Blisters or Cold Sores, Cosmetic or Reconstructive Surgery.

Treatments: Retin-A, Hydroquinone or similar skin thinning products, Blood thinning medications, Topical or Oral Cortisone medicine.
