Many women experience unwanted hair on the face, whether it’s light “peach fuzz,” a few stray darker hairs, or overly thick, unruly eyebrows. Most women have tried some form of facial hair removal, whether it’s hair removal creams, shaving, plucking, or strategic cutting. But one of the most effective methods to remove unwanted facial hair is waxing, which has a host of benefits that make it stand out from the hair removal competition.
Effective. Waxing is a very effective hair removal technique that works perfectly on facial hair. Unlike some creams, which have inconsistent results, waxing successfully removes hair anywhere it is used.
Long lasting. Because waxing removes hair at the root, it takes much longer for hair to grow than when you shave or cut individual hairs. That’s because shaving only cuts the very surface, so it’s easy for each hair to start re-growing right away. When waxing removes the follicle, it must first regrow before the hair regrows, and often this means that thinner and weaker hairs regrow in the treated area.
Good for the skin. Waxing doubles as an exfoliating treatment, which removes dead skin cells and leaves your skin brighter, all the while stimulating more collagen production and cell replacement. Exfoliating is an important part of your skincare routine, especially as we age, and collagen production slows. unlike shaving and cutting, there’s no risk of nicks and cuts with waxing, and it won’t cause irritated rashes like some hair removal creams.
Precise. With waxing, only hair in areas covered with wax are removed. That allows your esthetician to perfectly shape your brows without the sometimes painful, always tedious and time-consuming plucking method, which only removes one hair at a time. Your esthetician has complete control over the style you want for yourself because she controls the wax placement.
Long-term results. The more you wax, the more it damages the follicles of unwanted hair. Eventually, less hair, if any, will regrow in the treated area. That’s why you want to keep up your waxing appointments, so that you don’t lose progress and give the follicles a chance to regrow.
