Smooth and silky skin is one of the best ways to feel good about yourself. If you have unwanted hair, there’s no need to worry — hair removal in areas such as your legs, armpits, eyebrows, bikini line, and upper lip is not only easy but convenient. The best thing about waxed hair removal is that it lasts for a long time. (With wax your hair is completely removed, right from the root– unlike shaving, which just removes hair from the skin’s surface.) Here are seven fantastic tips to get you ready for your appointment with smoother, silkier skin. Welcome to the best wax experience ever!
1. Can Anyone Get Waxed?
Yes! Waxing is a great option for people of all ages and lifestyles. Usually, it’s recommended that waxing procedures start at a young age. This is because the hair is much softer and finer. If you have a skin condition which makes you susceptible to scarring, however, you may want to have a consultation prior to your appointment — just to make sure that the waxing process is right for you.
2. Who Does the Waxing?
This is a great question. It is essential to make sure that you go to a professional. Find an aesthetician who is licensed. Licenses are usually issued by the state after an individual has completed a training program. It’s always good to find someone who pays attention to detail, takes pride in their work, and has been practicing for several years. This will help you have the best wax experience.
3. When Can I Get Waxed?
You can get waxed at any time, but timing may depend on your preferences as an individual. For instance, some women are more sensitive during their periods. If this is the case with you, then you might want to wait until after your period to schedule your waxing appointment.
4. How Do I Prep for My Wax?
Being prepared is the key factor in making sure you get the best wax experience possible. The main thing to remember before you arrive for your appointment is to have nice, clean skin. This will make removing your hair much easier. Speak with your professional waxer about your pain tolerance level, and if it is determined to be low enough, you may want to take an Advil before the procedure. It’s important to refrain from putting creams on your skin (especially fragrances such as oils or perfumes) before a waxing appointment. These can impede the waxing process and make it difficult for the wax to grip your hair.
5. How Is the Area Cleaned?
The waxing procedure begins by cleaning the skin with an antiseptic. Then, wax strips are placed on the skin and the hair is removed. After that, any wax that is left over is taken off by your aesthetician. To remove excess wax, the aesthetician will use a softening agent such as aloe, or a disinfectant.
6. What Steps Should I Take After Getting Waxed?
Apply cortisone cream or aloe to the area that has been treated. This will help prevent sensitivity and chafing. We suggest using Elate products before and after your appointment to best care for your skin. It is also suggested to avoid sun for two days after your procedure. Sun exposure may tend to make the area more sensitive.
7. How Long Is It Recommended To Wait Between Waxings?
Wax frequency varies from individual to individual. Generally, your hair will grow back within a month, or even three weeks. If the area has been shaved earlier, the hair may grow back at a faster rate.
If you want to get rid of unwanted hair, then waxing is an excellent option for you. In 2019, professional services for waxing were used by 6.97 million Americans 4 times or more within the span of just six months. With these seven simple steps, you will be able to have an amazing wax experience whether you are a beginner or a veteran waxer. Once you are familiar with the entire process of body waxing, you will be able to enjoy smooth, silky skin year-round.
