Have you ever tried Waxing?
Summer is just around the corner, and almost everyone is making an effort to shape up for swimsuit season. In addition to healthy eating and a few extra hours at the gym, have you thought about waxing?
There are a few other options for hair removal out there. Shaving is the most common option. However, it can leave painful irritation and bumps, not to mention the longest that lasts is about 2 or 3 days. Hair removal creams are another in home option, but they smell awful and can also irritate sensitive skin.
Today more and more people use Waxing. It may be a scary thought for some people at first. You are, in fact, ripping the hair right out of the skin. However, just like with many other things, it is not as scary as it seems, and there are actually many pros to this method of hair removal. When done correctly the pain is worth the outcome.
The main reasons to consider Waxing are:
- First, and foremost, is the longevity. Waxing can last 4 to 8 weeks. This can be a blessing when you take your summer vacation and don’t even have to pack a razor.
- The stubble you would get with shaving is completely gone; your skin is left silky smooth.
- Hair re-growth is usually much finer, softer, sparser, and less noticeable.
- Continued waxing can actually damage the hair follicle, which mistakenly sounds like a bad thing, but actually leads to less hair growing back in the future.
This time of year you may have seen the advertisements for the D.I.Y. type of waxing you can do at home. This may be a decent option for some people who have overcome the initial fear of waxing and have the time to spend performing this type of task, but for most people, it is a much more intimidating option. Waxing yourself can be very messy, painful, and time-consuming for beginners. There are also a lot of products on the shelves, and it can be hard to know what kind of wax is used for certain hair types.
The esthetic professionals at Spa Lux are licensed, experienced, and completely comfortable performing any type of waxing service. We use a gentle, organic French cream wax which kills bacteria and is removed with a soft peeling strip for large areas like the legs. For smaller, more delicate areas like the face or bikini area, we use an extremely gentle French hard wax which is applied thickly and once cooled is removed alone without a strip.
If you have never tried waxing, summer is the perfect time to give it a chance. Let our estheticians put you at ease and explain the benefits of waxing and how to make your silky smooth skin last the longest.
