Wax Hair Removal
Waxing is a form of hair removal that uses a sticky substance to rip hair out of the follicle. This is not a permanent solution but results can be expected to last 2-4 weeks.
The unwanted hair needs to be 1 centimeter to a half inch long to be removed. If it’s any shorter the wax is not able to grab it well enough to pull it out. If it’s any longer than half and inch it will be a more painful process for the client and potential bruising and tenderness can occur. Areas to be waxed are first cleansed with a gentle, antibacterial tonic, then dusted with a light powder to protect the skin. This ensures that the wax grabs the hair shafts, not the skin. The area to be waxed and the clients skin type and condition determine the type of wax to be used for removal. We offer a hard wax, Cerapil, which does not use a strip to be pulled off. It is thickly applied by a single use stick and left to cool/dry. An edge flicked up to grip and the rest of the wax is quickly pulled off with all hair it covered. This is very gentle on the skin and there is rarely tenderness after treatment. Another option is strip wax removal. An Amber wax is applied on prepped skin very thinly with a single use stick. A pelon material strip is then firmly pressed over the wax and quickly pulled off long with all of the hairs underneath. Once all of the unwanted hair in the desired area is removed, the skin is cleaned again and any stubborn hairs left behind are tweezed. Skin is left silky smooth and hair free.
