Waxing the mainstream

Posted By Teri Worten on Apr 25, 2018 |


For women, and more recently men, who want to remove the unwanted body or facial hair there are a number of options open to them. Many people would like to be able to permanently remove unwanted hair but shy away from treatments such as laser or electrolysis that can be expensive and for some frightening even. Even with these two treatments the results are not permanent and are not allowed to be advertised as such as in around ten percent of treatments hair grows back on the treated area within twelve months.

So what are the alternatives?

Shaving for one needs to be done regularly and offers only temporary hair removal. Even with the latest gels shaving can lead to irritated skin and of course you can cut yourself.

Depilatory creams are another option. These creams are applied to the skin and, after a set time laid out in the instructions, removed with a small plastic scraper. Scrape too soon and you will not get the desired effect as there will be hair still remaining. Leave the cream on and it can lead to serious burns that would have to be treated with ointment for at least a few days.

So shaving only offers temporary hair removal and is unsuitable for delicate areas such as the pubic region and depilatory creams can have varied results and are pretty time-consuming.

It’s not surprising then that the use of hair waxing to remove unwanted body hair has become so popular amongst both men and women. Removing unwanted body or facial hair by the use of hair waxing is a very versatile method and has proved to produce effective results wherever on the body treatment is applied. It can be used to re-shape eyebrows and open up the face or to trim pubic hairs to give a clean tidy look. Some people are put off by the thought that hair waxing is painful but in truth, done correctly, the procedure should only cause a slight smarting for a couple of seconds.

If you choose to wax at home, there are several options open to you as to which type of product you purchase. Both hot and cold waxing kits are available for home use and can be applied to any part of the body, although you should always ensure that you read the instructions and make sure that the product is suitable for delicate areas. Kits intended for specific areas such as the face or bikini area are readily available.

Of course, we recommend that you visit a reputable, professional salon to have your unwanted body hair waxed away. Trained technicians properly remove hair, and you won’t have to worry about experiencing the nightmare of having wax stuck to you, hair not removed, and a mess at home.

So to sum up, whether you are a man or woman looking to remove unwanted body hair the use of a hair waxing removal product could be the best option open to you. It won’t take long to get the hang of it and you will have more time to spend the rest of your beauty regime. If you are still unsure, why not visit a local salon and get advice from a professional beautician about which hair waxing method is suitable for you.
