Waxing to Effectively Remove Unwanted Hair

Waxing to Effectively Remove Unwanted Hair

February 14 2019
Getting rid of unwanted hair can be a hassle. Although there are some do-it-yourself options on the market, these often come with discomfort, unsightly nicks and cuts, and minimal results. Fortunately, professional spa waxing offers the most effective, economical way to finally get rid of that hair and leave your skin soft and smooth.

Many women remove unwanted hair by shaving, but this method can make the situation even worse. Because it cuts hair at the surface rather than removing it at the root, hair grows back fast. You may even see and feel stubble the very next day, and this is especially a problem for highly visible facial hair. Hair appears to grow back even thicker than before because of the angle of the cut. There’s always the possibility of nicks and cuts as you scrape the sharp razor over your skin. Although many women shave, the results are less than stellar.

Other women turn to creams and lotions that promise to remove unwanted hair. Unfortunately, these can cause skin irritation and allergic reactions, and they don’t do a good job of getting rid of the hair. You’re often left with blotches of hair and red, irritated skin. 

Laser hair removal and similar techniques can be effective, but they’re expensive and time-consuming. 

Professional waxing, however, is affordable and effective. Hair is removed at the root, requiring the follicle to regrow before the hair itself can regrow. Not only does this take much longer than with other methods, but it also makes hair grow back thinner and weaker than before, making subsequent wax appointments quicker. 

There are no nicks or cuts with waxing; in fact, waxing exfoliates your skin, removing dead skin cells and stimulating collagen and new cell formation, so your skin is even healthier after waxing treatments. 

Waxing is precise, because only hair covered with wax will be removed, so your esthetician can shape your brows perfectly. Regular, professional waxing is the best way to effectively remove unwanted hair.
