Wax on, wax off. More effective than shaving, waxing is one of the most popular hair removal treatments, targeting areas such as the legs, underarms and bikini line. Not for the overly sensitive, a waxing session may make you wince – but trust us, that super smooth skin will be worth it.
During your waxing treatment you will be asked to lie down on a treatment bed. Your therapist will use a spatula to apply the wax to your skin, spreading it evenly over the area to be treated. They will then smooth on a paper or cloth waxing strip, before quickly pulling it off again, taking the hair with it. Well, we did say it might be a bit uncomfortable...
Therapists use different waxes depending on the requirements of the treatment. Hot wax is great for removing strong, thick hair, while cool wax and sugaring paste tend to better for use on sensitive skin. Some salons use scented wax – giving you the chance to choose between fragrances such as lavender, rose and chocolate.
Whether you are looking to de-fuzz your legs, bikini line, underarms, back, chest or any other part of your body, waxing is an efficient solution. Kinder on the skin than shaving, there’ll be no stubble rash, and the results will last for longer – so you don’t have to be constantly worrying about that wretched regrowth.
You may find there are a few stray hairs left after the wax strips have been removed – don’t worry, your therapist will get rid of these in a jiffy with a pair of tweezers.
