WAXING SERVICES

Waxing is hair removal from the root. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for four to six weeks, although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week due to some of their hair being on a different human hair growth cycle. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, pubic hair (called bikini waxing), legs, arms, back, abdomen, knuckles, and feet. There are many types of waxing suitable for removing unwanted hair.

Strip waxing is accomplished by spreading a wax thinly over the skin. A cloth or paper strip is applied and pressed firmly, adhering the strip to the wax and the wax to the skin. The strip is then quickly ripped against the direction of hair growth, as parallel as possible to the skin to avoid trauma to the skin. This removes the wax along with the hair.

Contraindications

The following factors are known to make those who are waxed more prone to "skin lifting," where the top layer of skin is torn away during waxing treatment:

  • Taking blood-thinning medications;
  • Taking drugs for autoimmune diseases, including lupus;
  • Taking prednisone or steroids;
  • Psoriasis, eczema, or other chronic skin diseases;
  • Recent sunburn;
  • Recent cosmetic or reconstructive surgery;
  • Recent laser skin treatment;
  • Severe varicose leg veins;
  • Rosacea or very sensitive skin;
  • History of fever blisters or cold sores (waxing can cause a flare-up);
  • Using Trevino, Tazaronene, or any other peeling agent;
  • Recent surgical peel, microdermabrasion or chemical peel using glycolic, alpha hydroxy, salicylic acid, or other acid-based products.

BENEFITS

There are many benefits to waxing versus other forms of hair removal. It is an effective method to remove large amounts of hair at one time. It is a long-lasting method, as hair in waxed areas will not grow back for two to eight weeks. When hair is shaved or removed by depilatory cream, the hair is removed at the surface rather than the hair root. Within a few days, the hair can reappear back at the surface. With these methods, hair tends to grow back in a rough stubble. Areas that are repeatedly waxed over long periods of time often exhibit regrowth that is softer.
