All About Wax!

There are many types of waxes and I know it can be confusing but after lots of training and experience I have found that some types are better suited for different areas of the body than others. So for example my European hard wax is best for delicate areas like eyebrows, faces, lips and bikini. There is less of a tug with the hard wax and leaves no residue. My azulene wax is best for less delicate areas like arms, legs, chest and back. It is also great for sensitivity but covers broader areas of the body.

It is always advisable for the hair to be grown out 1/4 to 1/2 inch long or 3-4 weeks (whichever comes first) to get the skin as smooth as possible. Always consult with your aesthetician if you are using or taking any acne medication or using creams for acne or anti-aging. They sometimes have ingredients in them that will make the skin sensitive to the wax and could result in scarring. These medications may include Retinol, retin-a, acutane or any words that end with acid such as glycolic acid, lactic acid etc…Also do not suntan before a wax or do any exfoliation.

All that being said, here’s a fun fact for you: waxing was called sugaring and was used by the Egyptians. They made a paste of it and rolled it up and down the skin. They felt like waxing was not only hygienic but a sign of purity! I hope this helps you with your waxing needs. Please call or come in for a more in depth consultation. Here’s to happy and safe waxing!
