Benefits of Waxing & Facials
Benefits of Waxing
Is waxing permanent?
Any product that properly removes hair from the root causes the hair follicle to become weaker. This results in finer and sparser growth over time. Neither regular standard waxes nor sugaring will offer longer lasting results. As long as the hair is properly removed from the root, the results are the same. We will not make a false claim that this is permanent – especially in hormonal areas such as the lip and chin. If you want a more guaranteed form of permanent hair removal, we suggest laser hair removal.
Waxing is a form of hair removal that removes the entire hair from the hair follicle. Warm wax is applied to the skin and enters the hair follicle allowing the hair to be pulled from the root. The wax is either removed with a cotton strip or it hardens and is removed by hand. Because the entire hair is removed, skin is left very smooth.
How long do I have to wait before my first wax?
Your hair needs to be 1/4” long or basically the length of a grain of rice. This takes the average person one to two weeks of growth. After the first wax, do not shave again! As you continue to wax, your hair will grow in finer and sparser. The “cactus” feel you have before your first wax will not exist with continued waxing, making it easier to grow out between services.
Will waxing cause wrinkles?
Wrinkling of the skin occurs because of a breakdown deep within skin tissue. This breakdown is usually caused by excessive sun damage, skin dehydration, cigarette smoking, excessive alcohol consumption and hereditary factors. Waxing does not cause a breakdown of skin tissue, and therefore will not cause wrinkling.
Is there anything I should do to prepare for waxing and to be comfortable?
As long as it does not contradict what your doctor has told you, we recommend taking ibuprofen at least 20 minutes before your waxing service. If you are a female client, schedule your waxing service the first two weeks after your cycle since your sensitivity level is less during this time. Avoid caffeine and alcohol as these are stimulants. Pregnancy also increases sensitivity.
Will my hair grow back darker and thicker?
No, in fact waxing usually causes the opposite reaction. Waxing removes hair by the root and will often cause hair to grow in finer and sparser with continued services. Keep in mind that women lose an average of 1% of estrogen each year so hormonal areas, such as lip and chin, will continue to grow hair and darken the older we get.
These Benefits transfer to any skin care body or facial service
No matter your age or gender, your body’s largest organ is your skin. If you want your skin (especially on the face) to look its best and stay healthy, you need to take care of it. Healthy, good looking skin begins with skin care. Facials are an essential ingredient of your overall skin care program.
What is a facial?
A facial is a spa therapy and massage that leaves your skin cleaner, softer, younger, and truly transformed. Facials can help clear clogged pores, quench parched skin and remove dead cells. Facials involve some massage which aids in blood circulation and lymphatic drainage. The facial massage also helps to relax facial muscles which can slow the onset of wrinkles on the face. Puffiness reduction, sagging in the face and skin cell renewal are additional benefits from these massage techniques.
What are some benefits of a facial?
Facials help reduce the impact of sun exposure, smoking and other environmental factors as well as incorrect product use.
Women are more susceptible to aging due to stress. Facials help reduce stress. While stress is quickly rising to number in the premature aging process, it can also act as a rosacea trigger, shorten the lifespan of your skin cells, aggravate acne and other skin inflammations.
