How often should I get a waxing treatment?

Regular waxing is essential and should be done every 4 – 6 weeks depending on the speed of the hair growth. If waxing is done regularly the skin will be less sensitive and over time the hair will become finer and sparser.

Benefits of waxing for women

Thankfully us ladies are less hairy than our male counterparts so the most popular areas for waxing for us are legs, bikini (Brazilian, Hollywood), underarms, brows and upper lip.

Why wax?

1. Waxing removes hair from the root and lasts for approximately 4 – 6 weeks. For most, after several treatments the hair grows back softer and sparser and in some cases stops completely.

2. The wax acts as an exfoliator thus removing dead skin cells resulting in soft, smooth skin.

3. Unlike shaving, waxing does not leave stubble and because the hair is removed from the root, a new soft hair grows through.

4. Razors and harsh hair removal creams can irritate the skin causing rashes or cuts. Waxing is much kinder to the skin.

5. Hair makes the skin warmer so once removed you’ll perspire less.

6. If you’re a keen swimmer or are going on holiday, a bikini wax will ensure you’ll have a hair free bikini line for weeks!

Benefits of waxing for men

You can wax virtually any part of your body and it’s estimated that about one in three men regularly remove hair from their backs, chests, legs or pubic areas, and that nine in ten women find back hair a bit of a turn off.

Male waxing services include legs, arms, underarms, back and shoulders, chest and stomach and male Brazilian or Hollywood.

For the majority of men, waxing is infinitely preferable to shaving or harsh hair removal creams and besides appearing more attractive to the ladies, listed below are the main benefits of male waxing.

Benefits of waxing treatments

If you’re tired of the frequency you have to shave and the itchy, stubbly regrowth then maybe it’s time you tried waxing.

Waxing is a very quick and long lasting method of hair removal and can be performed on virtually any part of the body. It is most commonly used for removing hair on the back, legs, underarms, bikini area and face.

Below is a list of benefits of waxing over shaving and may encourage you to convert to waxing as your method of hair removal.

1. Waxing removes hair from the root so regrowth takes approximately 4 – 6 weeks.

2. Waxing is quick and removes large areas of hair at one time.

3. Unlike other methods of hair removal ie hair removal creams or shaving, waxing does not cut the skin, cause pigmentation or rashes. Wax does not contain any harsh chemicals like creams.

4. After waxing a soft new hair grows through so no itching like hard stubbly shaved hair.

5. As well as leaving the skin soft and hair free, waxing also removes dead skin cells so you get a free skin exfoliation too.

6. After several waxing treatments many customers will notice much sparser hair growth, and in some cases hair may stop growing completely.

Tips for finding a professional waxing salon

Bad waxes are avoidable if you do your research. Look online for an experienced technician with good reviews and don’t be afraid to quiz them. Ask them how long they’ve been waxing, if they use pre and post wax treatments, or what to do with regard to aftercare. If they are a true professional they will be happy to answer any of your questions.

I would always advise seeing an experienced waxer who specialises and is not a jack of all trades. The treatment room should be clean and comfortable and you should immediately be made to feel at ease, after all, waxing can be a daunting experience if you’re a first timer.

There should be a clean paper sheet on the couch and all spatulas and paper strips should be unused. Ensure your wax technician disinfects the couch straight after your treatment and never double dips as this is a sign that she may not know what she’s doing or doesn’t care enough about hygiene.
