Below, you will find the answers to the most frequently asked questions regarding hair waxing:
How is waxing hair removal performed?
First, the wax must be distributed all over the skin with hair evenly and thinly. Obtain a cloth strip and place it on the skin. Gently press the cloth strip, then rip it off with a rapid movement removing the wax together with the skin hair as well as dead skin cells leaving your skin smooth.
What is the difference between a hot wax and a cold wax?
The hot wax melts slightly above body temperature, thus, it can easily be spread thinly on the skin. As the wax starts to harden, they ensnare the hair inside the wax, so once the hairs are removed, the roots are also included.
On the other hand, cold waxes can be bought in pre-coated strips which can directly be pressed on the skin. The hair would stick to the wax and is then ripped off with a fast pull back movement. Cold waxes are also termed as Persian wax.
What is the effect of waxing hair removal to the skin?
Since the dead skin cells are also removed during the process, the skin will feel pretty smooth later on. However, hair waxing causes the skin to itch and sting afterwards and a lot of people try to find a calming skin healing cream and apply it after waxing. There are a number of people whose skins turn red with bumps few hours after waxing.
What are the body areas that can be waxed?
It is best to try testing small portion of your skin first, but in general, waxing is applicable in most body parts.
How long will the hair reappear?
Most of the time, the hair will grow again between three to eight weeks. However, lesser hair will grow and is generally finer. In some cases, some hair will not grow again.
How will you minimize the pain and discomfort associated with waxing?
The best way to bring down the discomfort level is to press the skin really hard right after pulling off the waxing strip. Again, you must immediately pull off the strip.
