What You Need to Know About Waxing

Everyone has an opinion (or a complaint) about body hair. Celebrities are no different. They also have very Real Body Hair Struggle. Even most of celebs keep their waxing experts on call. “Every woman should try a Brazilian wax once.” Eva Longoria

Then, what about you? Do we need waxing?

Actually, regular waxing is essential. The skin will be less sensitive if waxing is done regularly. Over time the hair follicle will have less and less of a grip on the hair to be pulled and the hairs will come out more easily. Another reason to wax frequently is that you may even experience less hair growth over time.

What should I expect after my first waxing treatment?

Hairless skin! Also, everyone’s skin reacts differently to waxing treatments, but you can expect to have temporary redness and minor irritation for a day or two. Slight itchiness may be experienced as the hair grows out. Proper post-wax care will alleviate these symptoms quickly.

Will I get ingrown hairs?

It’s possible.

Waxing removes the entire hair, root and all, from the follicle. Your skin naturally hardens and thickens over the area that was waxed so it is important to keep that area gently exfoliated. Use a gentle scrub in that area about 2 days after waxing and continue to exfoliate 1 to 2 times a week thereafter. Try to avoid heavy exercise that will increase perspiration and chaffing for about 24-48 hours after waxing.

How do I benefit from waxing?

Waxing reduces hair growth when performed at every four to five weeks. While shaving crops the hair at the skin’s surface, waxing pulls it out by the root, so it grows back softer, finer, and thinner. Waxing is great for those who are tired of the hassle of shaving several times per week. The more you wax, the less hair grows back.

Can I shave between waxing appointments?

No. Please do not shave between waxing appointments! It disrupts the hair growth cycle resulting in more hair at your next appointment.

Will waxing make my hair grow back thicker/stronger/darker?

Absolutely not.

Waxing does not cause you to grow more hair follicles. In fact, if you become a regular waxer, you will notice that your hair will become quite sparse and not as coarse. The only things known to stimulate hair growth are hormones: natural or artificial.

What is a Bikini or Brazilian wax?

A Brazilian wax is the removal of most hair growth, leaving only a central strip untouched. A Hollywood waxing treatment removes ALL hair growth in the Bikini area.
