Body waxing is among the most popular and regularly used medical aesthetics procedures. Resin-based wax is used in this hair removal method. The entire strand is removed from the follicle to the tip. If done correctly, results should last for up to six weeks.
Here’s how it works.
Body Waxing: How It Works
Let’s begin by discussing the two primary types of wax available: soft and hard wax.
Using soft wax, you can use either cold or warm wax to cover the region from where you want to have hair removed. Soft wax is sometimes referred to as “strip wax.” Using this method, wax is applied in a pattern that follows the grain of hair growth. After that, you add a piece of paper or a strip of fabric.
From this point, you peel the paper or fabric away from your skin in the direction of the hair grain. Therefore, you should pluck your hair off upwardly and slightly to the right if it grows downward and a little to the left.
You may remove hair with hard wax – sometimes stripless – without paper or cloth. That’s because the wax solidifies and transforms into a strip when it cools. The same method is used to remove hard wax (lifting the wax in the opposite direction). If you waxed properly, the entire strand, including the follicle, should be visible on the wax strip.
There is another type of wax, called cold wax. Cold wax is sold in pre-shaped strips for specific body parts, such as the upper lip or bikini area. Before being peeled off, they are applied to the region.
These are generally employed for waxing at home. However, they are less effective and frequently require repeated use.
Why Resort to Body Waxing
First of all, you should consider body waxing because it moves quickly (especially compared to tweezing). It is possible to remove a lot of hair at once. Hair removal from both of your legs can be finished in as little as an hour by a professional.
So it takes longer than shaving, granted. But after shaving, stiff, prickly hair starts to grow as soon as the next day! With body waxing, your skin will be left smooth and pristine.
Additionally, the possibility of living a life free of hair forever exists! Initially, you’ll experience temporary benefits that are still longer than shaving or tweezing. But the more you wax, the more likely you will damage your hair follicles, which will impede your hair growth until they won’t grow back.
So, think about waxing if you want to get rid of all those extra strands for longer.
How Long Do the Results of Body Waxing Last?
The body area and the rate at which your hair grows determined how long the effects of body waxing last. For instance, when customers inquire about the duration of a leg waxing, we typically tell them to expect smooth legs for up to six weeks. It usually takes three to four weeks for bikini waxes.
After receiving a waxing treatment, you will learn how long the wax lasts and when you should schedule a new appointment. It’s up to you how frequently you should wax, but according to our waxing professionals, most people wait 4-6 weeks between sessions.
Does Body Waxing Hurt?
Waxing is more painful than other hair removal methods since it involves pulling the hair out from the root. Most of our clients report that the discomfort they initially experience gets better with time, goes away quickly and is worthwhile for the smooth finish. However, this depends on a few factors.
The therapist’s expertise and experience also impact how much discomfort a patient feels. At Premier Med Spa, we ensure that each of our therapists has thorough training and is knowledgeable on reducing the pain associated with body waxing. The discomfort will decrease the more often you have a region waxed.
If you can, take ibuprofen around 45 minutes before your therapy.
What Areas Do Med Spas Wax?
At Premier Med Spa, we can wax practically any part of the body – from brow to toe. But here is a more in-depth explanation to help you understand what we’re offering you.
High Bikini Wax
You can get bikini-ready with a high bikini wax, which removes the hair from the front while leaving the hair between the legs plus a little triangle.
One of the most popular options, a Brazilian wax, will leave a tiny triangle of hair at the front but will completely extract the hair between the legs extending from front to back, making the area incredibly smooth.
We also wax other body areas, including the brows, chin, upper lip, and many more.
How to Prepare for Body Waxing?
Be careful to exfoliate before your visit to make the most of your first body waxing experience. Exfoliating beforehand aids in the removal of ingrown hairs. Additionally, exfoliation before waxing off makes the strands come out more easily, which reduces irritation and discomfort.
Ensure that you stay hydrated as well! A few days prior to your appointment, up your water intake a little bit. Since it makes hair removal quicker and easier, hydration helps to reduce discomfort.
It’s also crucial to let your hair grow until it’s around 1/2 inch long. You need enough external hair to ensure that they adhere to the wax without difficulty.
Last but not least, ladies: Schedule a meeting for a day that is not during your period. Your likelihood of experiencing pain from waxing increases the closer you are to your monthly menstrual cycle.
