Unwanted hair is a problem for both men and women. There are many methods for the removal of hair on a semi-permanent basis. The methods include waxing, laser hair removal, threading and epilating. The most famous and successful method for the removal of hair is waxing. Waxing takes out the hairs from their roots, hence slowing their rate of production again. Waxing is the method that only involves two things. First is the wax mixture and the second is the paper or cloth strip. Only two things require only three steps. The first is the application of the wax mixture on the body part and then the rubbing of the paper strip on the wax applied area and finally removing the strip by a rapid pulling movement. Wax is applied in the direction of the hair growth and the strip is removed in the opposite direction. This enables a better removal of hair from the skin. Waxing is the method that can be used to remove hair from any part of the body. Whether the part is the eyebrow area, the bikini area, the arms, the legs or anywhere you can think of.
Waxing is the easiest method that can be used for the removal of unwanted hair. Men can get their chest hair removed by this method and they wouldn’t have to worry about getting it waxed again for a period of two or eight weeks. There are certain people who complain about getting hair back after a week only. This is not the fault of waxing; it just means that their hormones are a little imbalanced.
The method of waxing has been carried out in homes as well. Most of the girls are embarrassed and hence carry out waxing on their own. This is never recommended as the young girls can never be aware of what kind of a wax would suit them. They might have very sensitive skins and would be allergic to hot wax. Therefore, it is always advisable to come to our spa for getting those hairs removed. One other fact is that not all parts of the body can be waxed on your own. For example, you cannot possibly wax the upper right shoulder using the left hand. You might damage the skin by applying a little too hot wax or pulling a little too hard. Talking about our services, our spa specialists care about your skin. They don’t want any complaints from you hence they first check the sensitivity of your skin and then start the waxing method.
Our specialists also adjust the heating of the wax according to your skin’s sensitivity. There are different types of waxing methods available at our spa. You can choose the hot wax method, the wax strip method or the cold wax method. We also suggest the right method of waxing for you depending upon the sensitivity and the allergic nature of your skin. Come to our spa and you’ll never be dissatisfied.
