Waxing is the process of hair removal from the root by using a covering of a sticky substance, such as wax, to adhere to body hair, and then removing this covering and pulling out the hair from the follicle. Yes this is extremely painful! New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for two to six weeks, although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week due to some of their hair being in a different hair growth cycle. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including brows, face, bikini, legs, arms, back, abdomen, knuckles, and feet. There are two types of wax which suitable for removing unwanted hair. Strip and stripless or hot wax. We highly recommend you do not try DIY waxing. This is not an easy task and can end in disaster.
The Laser Beautique offers hot and cold wax for anyone who is head strong on not wanting to laser, have electrolysis or threading. We strongly recommend hot wax on the facial area as strip wax is too harsh on one’s delicate facial skin. Take note that when one has a wax, their skin is being “stretched”. This is not ideal for skin elastin fibres and for antiaging. Every time ones skin get stretched, it gets loser and eventually fine lines and wrinkles start to set in.Another drawback of waxing is that some people experience ingrown hair, red bumps, and minor bleeding. If you suffer from ingrown hair, we highly recommend laser or electrolysis.
