Waxing is a form of semi-permanent hair removal, which removes the hair from the root. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for two to eight weeks, although some people will start to see re-growth in only one week.* Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, bikini area, legs, arms, arms, back, abdomen and feet.
Soft waxing is accomplished by spreading a wax thinly over the skin. A cloth or paper strip is then pressed on the top and pulled off the direction of hair growth. This removes the wax along with the hair.
Hard waxing utilizes hot wax, as opposed to strip wax. With hard waxing, the wax is applied somewhat thickly and with no cloth or paper strips. The wax then hardens when it cools, thus allowing the easy removal by a Medical Aesthetician without the aid of clothes. This waxing technique is very beneficial to people who have sensitive skin or very course hair.
