Think of all those times you’ve used a razor to rid your armpits, legs, or pubic area. Does doing so bring back fond memories? Or does it bring back painful memories of nicks and cuts? There is no reason whatsoever that you should have to suffer to become hair-free. Shaving only cuts off the area growing outside the skin. Yes, you fell (temporarily) smooth, but in most cases, you’ll feel prickly again the next day.
This means you’ll have to keep shaving (every day!) to keep those areas smooth. And the more you shave, the more likely you are to nick (and damage) your skin.
Body waxing, especially done by a professional, delivers longer-lasting effects. That’s because with waxing, the entire strand of hair, including the follicle responsible for the hair’s growth, is removed.
With an expert body wax service, you can free your skin of nicks and cuts while feeling smoother and fresher … softer … for weeks! The best part is, you can have virtually any part of your body treated. That includes the upper lip and eyebrows and even the bikini area.

What can I expect during a waxing treatment?
With soft wax (also known as “strip wax”), you’ll either have cold or warm wax spread over the area from which you want hair removed. The technique involves spreading wax in a direction that mimics the hair’s natural growth pattern. A piece of paper or strip of cloth is then placed on top of the wax.
Next, the paper or cloth is pulled from the skin in the opposite direction of the hair growth.
When hard wax (also known as the stripless wax) is used, you don’t need paper or cloth to remove it from the skin. That’s because once the wax cools down, it solidifies and becomes strip-like.
Hard wax follows the same removal process of lifting and pulling the wax in the opposite direction of the hair growth.
As long as the waxing was done properly, you should be able to see the entire hair strand, including the follicle, in the wax strip.
Waxing is a fast, safe, and affordable way to remove unwanted hair. As a bonus, hair grows back slower and softer.
To get the most out of your waxing experience, be sure you exfoliate before your appointment to aid in lifting ingrown hairs. Exfoliating also makes the strands come out easier when waxed off, so that should mean reduced discomfort.
Make sure you keep yourself well-hydrated too. Drink a little extra water the few days before your appointment. Hydration aids in faster and easier removal of the hair strands.
It’s also important to grow your hair so it’s at least a half-inch long. You need enough external hair so that it sticks to the wax.
Last but not least, ladies: Set up an appointment on a day far from your period. The closer you are to your period, the higher your odds of discomfort from waxing.
Avoid heat (including working out, saunas, and tanning beds) for 48 hours post-treatment. Two days after treatment, if no redness remains, gently exfoliate to prevent ingrown hairs.
