Waxing is a form of long lasting hair removal that removes hair from the root. The results of this process typically last for four to six weeks. Some people may start to see new growth in only a week or so due to some of their hair being in different stages of the growth cycle. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, Pubic hair (also known as bikini waxing), legs, arms, back, abdomen, knuckles, and feet. There are many types of waxing suitable for removing unwanted hair; hot wax, cold wax, pre-made wax strips and hard wax.
Strip waxing is a soft wax spread thinly over the skin; a cloth or paper strip is then applied to the wax. The strip is then quickly removed against the direction of your hair growth removing any unwanted hair. Stripless wax commonly referred to as hard wax, is applied thick and without the use of cloth or paper strips. The wax then hardens when it cools, allowing for easy removal. This waxing method can be very beneficial to people who have sensitive skin. Stripless wax the hard wax encapsulates the hair as it hardens and does not adhere to the skin as much as strip wax does. Your aesthetician will help you make an informed decision on which process is right for you.
