What is waxing?
Waxing is the most common of hair removal techniques in spas today. In this treatment, cool or warm wax adheres to the hair and is pulled off in strips. We use a home made wax (sugaring) which is organic and naturally made by us.
What is Sugaring?
The basic recipe is made of sugar, lemon juice, water and a little honey. It is boiled to a consistency of a thick paste and applied onto the skin with a spatula and then quickly stripped away using a cotton muslin cloth. Sugaring is very similar to waxing only that it can be used on all skin types including the sensitive skins. The sugaring is water soluble that means it can be cleaned with a wet cloth or just rinse it off and it is all gone! Most of the store bought waxes are primarily made with resin and beeswax which can be very irritating to the skin. Sugaring is very hygienic as it is only used on a specific client and then discarded. We are very pleased to say that all of our clients have loved our home made natural sugaring that we had to start selling the wax tubs for home use.
Who can benefit from waxing?
Waxing reduces hair growth when performed at regular, thirty day intervals. While shaving crops the hair even with the skin, waxing pulls it out by the root, so it grows back softer, finer, and thinner. Waxing is great for those who are tired of the hassle of shaving several times per week-the more you wax, the less hair grows back. Waxing should not be performed if you have particularly sensitive skin because waxing pulls off a couple of layers of skin (along with hair) when it is removed and can cause tenderness and swelling. In addition, some medications will cause the skin to react badly to waxing. Don’t wax if you’re taking Retin-A, Accutane, or any type of acne prescription.
How should I prepare for the treatment?
Let the hair you want to have waxed grow out to about a half-inch above the skin. If hairs are left too short, the wax wont be able to adhere to them strongly enough to pull them out. Keep skin clean without any moisturizers or sunblock. Your question can be what if i did have moisturizer or sunblock on? Never mind we will wipe it clean before we start!
