Waxing is a very popular and successful treatment. The effects will last for between 4 to 6 weeks on the body, up to 2 weeks on the face. This will vary with the individual and re-growth is normally faster in the warmer months of the year. As the hair is removed from the root the hair grows back with a fine soft tip unlike when the hair is shaved and it feels rough to touch. There are a number of conditions that are not suitable for waxing treatments such as varicose veins, thread veins, very sensitive skins and certain medical conditions that may affect the healing of the skin. The therapist will offer advice concerning these conditions and discuss alternative treatments.
Warm wax is applied to the skin at a lower temperature than hot wax. Totally different to hot wax which is applied in thicker pieces, warm wax looks like melted golden syrup and is applied very thinly to the area. The sticky properties of this product make it adhere to the hair enabling it to be is removed by paper or fabric strips. The hair and root are removed as with hot wax.
Hot wax is so effective because it is just that - hot. The heat encourages your pores and hair follicules to open up making it easier to remove the hair. Because the hot wax is able to cling to the hair as it dries on the skin it is super effective at stripping out that hair without irritating your skin.
