Wax (Waxing)

Wax is a form of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for two to eight weeks, although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, bikini area, legs, arms, back, abdomen and feet. There are many types of waxing suitable for removing unwanted hair.

Strip waxing is accomplished by spreading a wax thinly over the skin. A cloth or paper strip is then pressed on the top and ripped off the direction of hair growth. This removes the wax along with the hair. Strip wax can also be made at home using lemon juice, water, sugar and honey.

Hot waxing utilizes hot wax (as opposed to strip wax). In this case, the wax is applied somewhat thickly and with no cloth or paper strips. The wax then hardens when it cools, thus allowing the easy removal by a therapist without the aid of cloths. This waxing method is very beneficial to people who have sensitive skin.

Wax Benefits

There are many benefits to waxing versus other forms of hair removal. It is an effective method to remove large amounts of hair at one time. It is a long-lasting method. Hair in waxed areas will not grow back for two to eight weeks. When hair is shaved or removed by depilatory cream, the hair is removed at the surface rather than the root. Within a few days, the hair can be seen at the surface. With these methods, hair tends to grow back in rough stubble. Areas that are repeatedly waxed over long periods of time often exhibit regrowth that is softer.

Bikini waxing is the epilation of pubic hair in and around the pubic region, commonly by women, by the use of wax. With certain styles of women’s swimwear, pubic hair may become visible around the crotch area of a swimsuit. Visible pubic hair is widely culturally disapproved of and considered to be embarrassing, and so is at times removed.  However, some people also remove pubic hair that is not exposed, for aesthetic, personal hygiene, cultural, fashion or other reasons.

The bikini line delineates the part of a woman’s pubic area below which would normally be covered by the bottom part of a swimsuit. In the context of waxing, it is generally understood to describe any pubic hair visible beyond the boundaries of a swimsuit. Epilation is usually also performed on the upper leg.

Pubic hair can be removed in a number of ways, including waxing, shaving, sugaring or using chemical depilatory creams. Hair that is not removed may be trimmed. While the practice is mainly associated with women, men at times also remove pubic hair.

What is a Brazilian wax?

The Brazilian is an extreme bikini waxing treatment that removes hair from the entire region – apart from a small patch just above the private area, commonly dubbed the ‘landing strip’.

We will assist you personally whether if you’re doing this for the first time or you are a seasoned Brazilian.  We are always researching new technology and procedures to make your visit as pleasant as possible.
